Course content

Within the development cycle of energy-efficient technologies, the requirement for highly accurate and reliable predictive approaches is unquestionable, with the construction of multi-scale mathematical representations of systems required as an aid in the design and planning of full-scale applications, and to allow focusing of complementary experimental work. The aim of the studentship is to enable the safe and efficient implementation of emerging technologies through the development of predictive tools which integrate state-of-the-art theoretical developments in energy-related engineering. The main focus will be on simulation, where simplifications are minimised, with applications in nuclear energy, carbon capture and storage, and bioenergy.
