Engineering design and analysis research

Research and delivery of new design and analytical technologies and solutions as well as the utilisation of such state of the art techniques across our engineering research disciplines are a significant activity across many of our research groups and centres.

The activities in this theme are evident across all our disciplines and the industrial sectors we work in partnership with and it is an integrating theme across many of our research group collaborations in major research projects

Activities we address include but are not limited to:

  • Engineering design methodologies
  • Multivariable design
  • Multi-body dynamics
  • Multiphysics Tribodynamics
  • Electronics systems design
  • CAD/CAM for sports
  • Systems modelling and simulation
  • Advanced signal processing
  • Computational fluid dynamics
  • Component-in-the-loop simulation
  • Combustion modelling
  • Advanced engineering and bio-materials analysis and design
  • Bespoke design and manufacture
  • Electromagnetic and microwave simulation
