Engineering and Tribology

The Engineering Analysis, Simulation and Tribology (EAST) group embraces the core disciplines of thermodynamics, fluid dynamics and heat transfer. Research is focussed on modelling of renewable energy bio-mass gasification, algae, and solar evaporation systems; the tribological life-cycle (wear and scuffing) analysis, boundary lubrication 'clean technology' aspects of internal combustion (IC) engines. Fluid flow and convective heat transfer research is being conducted on the theory of convection in tube bundle cross flow optimisation and jet-flows; the theoretical research concentrates on CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) and finite element (FE) studies (simulation tools). Research is also carried out in 3-phase slurry flow optimisation. Current projects include: design, development of air design and development of renewable energy; development of world's first known theoretical tribology simulation package based on numerical and genetic algorithms; manufacturing process heat recovery and water recycling system design; development of the new techniques for experimental probabilistic design method.
