Cameras shooting up to 25,000 frames a second have been used to capture the moment two droplets of liquid come together, opening up research into new applications for 3D printing. With one of the colour cameras positioned below the droplets and the other to the side, the synchronised system was...

The LIFD Director and Deputy Director, Prof Steve Tobias and Prof Cath Noakes, alongside some of the EPSRC CDT Fluid Dynamics students from the University of Leeds, met the recent EPSRC delegation visit to Leeds, to discuss the exciting Fluid Dynamics research taking place at the University. The full article...

On Monday 10th February, the School of Music at the University of Leeds played host to this year’s LIFD Annual Lecture. 4.30-5.30pm Talks from Dr Thomas Ranner “Understanding nematode locomotion in 3D” and Dr Malenka Bissell “The Flows They Are A-Changin’ – CFD shaping the future of congenital cardiology” 5.30-6.00pm...

On Wednesday 15th January, Universities Minister Chris Skidmore came to the University of Leeds as part of a fact-finding visit. At the university’s innovation hub, Nexus, he heard about internationally-important research and teaching undertaken at Leeds across key areas, including Fluid Dynamics, as shown in recent university news: Fluid dynamics: going...

Over November 23-26, 2019, colleagues from the Leeds Institute for Fluid Dynamics attended the 72nd Annual Meeting of the American Physical Society’s Division of Fluid Dynamics (DFD) at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, Washington, USA. The APS-DFD annual meeting is one of the largest conferences in fluid dynamics, with...

Dr Phil Livermore and colleagues from the Leeds Institute for Fluid Dynamics comment on the magnetic North’s behaviour in an article in the Financial Times: Phil Livermore and colleagues at Leeds University recently deduced that a “jet stream” of liquid iron was flowing within the core, something that could explain...

Rogue waves are anomalously high waves that appear rarely in the oceans and are therefore difficult to predict. Understanding their wave height and occurrence is relevant to maritime and coastal engineering given their potential to damage ships, maritime, and coastal structures. A team of investigators from the University of Leeds (LIFD), the University of...

Inspired by the recent elevation in both frequency and public perception of extreme-weather events, a team of researchers in the School of Mathematics, in collaboration with engineers at Grenoble, has developed an accessible and educational protocol targeted at effectiveness analysis and quantified decision making in the context of flood mitigation....
