Novel flowable lithium-ion battery
This project endeavours to integrate a lithium-based slurry electrode with common lithium salt solutions in a semi-solid redox flow battery.
Life cycle sustainability assessment of office buildings, from smart to sustainable
This project will conduct assessments of office buildings to consider various implications of building sensor and energy control systems.
Boundary layers with embedded streamwise vortices
This project will focus on high-resolution PIV of the streamwise vortex system that forms in a laminar boundary layer junction flow.
Plasticity-induced magnetisation losses in electric steel
This project aims to identify the mechanisms of energy conversion losses to develop a mechanism-based materials design approach to eventually increase the conversion efficiency of electric steel.
Unconventional superconductivity using renormalisation group methods
This project aims to apply cutting-edge theoretical methods to identify candidate materials that could be unconventional superconductors.
Towards a sustainable circular economy – integrating circularity in life cycle sustainability assessment
This project aims to define a consistent approach to integrating circular economy strategies into life cycle sustainability assessments.
Optimisation of the reuse of decommissioned open cast pit coal mines for district heating and cooling
This project focuses on numerical modelling tools to evaluate the best back-filling arrangement of open cast coal mines for their use as sources of heat.
