An enormous range of Fluid Dynamics research is undertaken at the University of Leeds. These are just a few examples of some of this research...

The requirement for ever more efficient gas turbine engines is leading to increased gas path temperatures, creating increasingly hostile environmental conditions for the adjacent turbomachinery and support structures…

Over 40% of the UK population live their working lives carrying out knowledge work in offices – enclosed spaces in the built environment. Current building codes are primarily defined around the performance of the physical infrastructure rather than capturing the performance of a person in a building in a city…

Dense buoyancy driven flows in channels are the main transport pathway between shallow slope regions and the deep sea. In higher latitudes these stratified flows are known to be strongly affected by Coriolis forces, however, the influence of these rotational forces on turbulent energy production and dissipation, shear stress distribution, and entrainment is largely unknown…

The Earth’s magnetic field is now continuously monitored from space by a swarm of satellites, and more data has been gathered from magnetic observatories in the past. Since the Earth’s magnetic field is generated in the fluid outer core of the Earth, by looking for the wave components in the magnetic data we can potentially discover information about the nature of the inside of the Earth…
