Modelling the maths behind wave motion to aid sea rescues


A mathematical model developed at the University of Leeds could make it possible to design safer versions of the 'fast ships' used in many vital offshore operations. Travelling at up to 30 knots, fast ships are used for search and rescue, anti-piracy and for transporting wind farm, oil and gas personnel. These ships are especially...

CDT Fluid Dynamics students given an insight into industry at the Materials Processing Institute


Students from the University of Leeds' EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Fluid Dynamics have spent three days at the Materials Processing Institute (MPI) in Teesside, with further visits planned between now and July as their project progresses. Led by Professor Onno Bokhove, CDT students Paul Allen, Caroline Shields and Fryderyk Wilczynski spent time...

CDT Students organising 'Beautiful Minds' event as part of Pint of Science


Pint of Science is an non-profit organisation whose aim is to provide a platform for which the public can engage with researchers and hear about innovative science. Held during an annual international festival, talks and activities will deliver interesting, fun, relevant topics across a range of STEM subjects...all in the pub! This year will see...

CDT Fluid Dynamics Management Board member, Professor Cath Noakes led study on hospital design and spread of infections


CDT Fluid Dynamics academic, Professor Cath Noakes, and other researchers at the University of Leeds have developed a quantitative model to predict how the design of hospitals can affect the spread of infections. This computer model predicts that multi-bed hospital wards increase bacterial hand contamination by 20% compared with single-bed wards. Understanding exactly how bacteria spread...

CDT Fluid Dynamics Co-Director, Professor Doug Parker wins Vice Chancellor’s Impact Award


Professor Doug Parker has recently been recognised by the University of Leeds Vice Chancellor's Impact Awards for his work on the African Monsoon Multidisciplinary Analysis (AMMA). The awards recognise outstanding examples of the contribution that the University's research makes to society. Four awards were made across the University, with Professor Parker's work representing the Engineering...

MSc team projects 2015


A key part of the PhD/MSc Fluid Dynamics programme is the interdisciplinary MSc team projects which run over semester two of year one. These projects involve aspects of mathematical modelling, experimentation and computational simulation. The current cohort of CDT in Fluid Dynamics students have successfully completed the following MSc team projects. Please click on each project...
