Small scale modelling of fluid-flow processes found in renewable energy industries, conventional energy industries, minerals, chemicals, pharmaceuticals and food processing industries, building services, civil and environmental engineering, aerospace technologies, transport technologies, defence systems, biomedical technologies and general manufacturing industries. Modelling of electrical machine performance in all of the above applications.



Small wind tunnel, water flume, axial-flow fan rig, six general-purpose small-scale hydraulics rigs, electrical machines modelling grid connection, solar photovoltaic simulator, 12 m wave channel with random wave-maker. In addition, there is a dedicated microfluidics room and a dedicated solar-thermal room.


Industry may commission small-scale tests in any of the topics above, or participate in larger, collaborative-grant funded research projects.
