Computer based flow modelling research, developed at the Schools of Mechanical and Civil Engineering, is enabling companies in the commercial and public sectors to improve their products. This has resulted in improved products for a range of companies in the commercial and public sectors. Based on theoretical methods of how fluids and gases...

Our monthly spotlight on the work and lives of the researchers from the Leeds Institute for Fluid Dynamics This month: Danielle Bullamore Thesis title: Two-phase flow in the dynamic Earth: Implications of reactive-infiltration instabilities for melt flux and chemical differentiation. School/ Faculty: CDT in Fluid Dynamics, School of Computing Supervisors:...

Research by Professor Steve Tobias (LIFD Director) has modified the general standing of dynamo-based prediction schemes and changed the process for predicting long-term solar activity. Professor  Tobias is an expert on dynamo theory: the science behind the generation of magnetic fields in the universe. In 2008 he was invited to...

Congratulations to Leeds Institute for Fluid Dynamics Deputy Director Prof. Cath Noakes and colleagues who have secured funding for a new testing facility at the University of Leeds which will enable scientists and engineers to investigate the way airborne microorganisms move around buildings, in order to improve environmental air quality....

Prof. Catherine Noakes OBE FREng FIMechE, is Professor of Environmental Engineering for Buildings at the University of Leeds and is going to be a guest lecturer at this year’s Royal Institution Christmas lectures.  Catherine is also Fellow of the Institute of Mechanical Engineers and was appointed as a Fellow of...

ESPRC has announced that the University of Leeds, led by the School of Chemical and Process Engineering, is the latest institution to join the UK’s National Nuclear User Facility (NNUF). The NNUF project is a Government investment in the UK’s nuclear future, providing state-of-the-art experimental facilities for research and development...

Review published today on face coverings and COVID-19, with Leeds Institute for Fluid Dynamics Deputy Director Cath Noakes contributing to this as a member of the respiratory evidence panel. The panel produced a statement of key findings and recommendations based on the results of the evidence review, combined with their...

Six projects will look at cutting the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions, from exploring how to make accelerators carbon neutral to using drones to monitor tree health. Funding from the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), announced today, will allow scientists to explore ways to turn research into real-world solutions and...
