About Mechanical Engineering and Aeronautics at City, University of London

The Department of Mechanical Engineering and Aeronautics has strong expertise in the area of Fluids Engineering and with its multidisciplinary roles has made major impact on engineering systems on land, sea, in the air and in outer space; from nano-scale project like medical implants to large-scale projects like aero-space stations.

The department welcomes research degree applications from candidates whose interests align with those of our academic staff. Currently there are more than 60 research students researching different topics at the Fluid Engineering Centre. Research students are central to research activity in the department. Our goal is to support talented individuals who wish to develop their research skills, to undertake rigorous and inspirational research and ultimately to obtain an MPhil or PhD qualification. Research students are supported in their studies through a structured programme of supervision and training.

Research can be performed in topics related to computational and experimental fluid dynamics and their applications to IC engines, compressors and turbines, various fluid machinery (injectors, pumps, propellers, fly wheels, marine systems etc), flow control, boundary layer drag reduction, supersonic flow, energy conversion systems. In the area of CFD expertise exists in the development of numerical methods and physical models for multi-phase flows and cavitation, turbulence modelling (LES and DNS), fluid-structure interaction, phase-change processes (cavitation and vaporisation), liquid sprays and combustion processes. In the area of experimental fluid dynamics expertise exists in laser diagnostics (LDV, PDA, PIV, LIF among other) and instrumentation of various sensors for recording the performance of various machines and wind tunnel testing.
