The scope of the Thermal and Fluid Science Research Group is to focus on the broad range of fundamental and applied problems in thermofluids and cover theoretical, numerical modelling and experimental approaches. The following areas lie in the immediate interests of the group: Fluid mechanics and aerodynamics; Heat transfer and thermodynamics; Combustion processes; Multiphase and multi-component flows and processes including oil and gas extraction and oil refinery applications; Acoustics, thermoacoustics and flow induced vibrations; Refrigeration, air-conditioning, cryo-cooling and liquefaction; Fluid rheology and complex fluids; Flow diagnostics including laser-based measurement (e.g. Particle Image Velocimetry – PIV and Laser Induced Fluorescence - LIF); Energy storage and waste heat recovery; Organic Rankine Cycles; Hydrogen Economy; Microfluidic devices and nano-fluids; Medical/Physiological flows and heat transfer.

The membership of the group is open to colleagues from across the University, from variety of schools/departments who feel there is a need for collaborative and multidisciplinary approaches in the fundamentals and applied aspects of thermal and fluid science. This will include mathematicians, physicists, electrical and electronic engineers, materials scientists and others.



 Our research staff are creative and innovative practitioners who have wide industrial and research experience.
