The Energy and The Environment Group cover a broad range of research activities with a specific emphasis on addressing the key drivers for industry and the environment. The research areas covered by the group includes:
The research group has strong links with leading technology companies and government research laboratories, such as BP, Cosworth Technology, Ford, Jaguar, Lotus Engineering and Shell (IC Engines), ABB Turbo, Ebara Corporation, Sulzer (MAN) Turbo, US Navy’s David Taylor Model Basin (Turbomachinery). There are also many examples of projects where members of the group work with other universities, for example: the Virtual Centre of Excellence for IC Engines (with Leeds, Loughborough and Oxford), and with ETH Zurich on the design of centrifugal compressors. The group has one spin off company, Advanced Design Technology Ltd, which is a global leader in the development of advanced Turbomachinery Aerodynamic design codes based on 3D inverse design approach.
The group have extensive experimental and computational facilities through strategic investment on a departmental and faculty level.
