PhD student and research associate recognised by Rolls-Royce

Jialin Su, a PhD student and research associate at the Loughborough University Technology Centre (UTC), has received the Rolls-Royce award for ‘Best paper’.

The award, titled the Howse, Ruffles and Parker Award, recognises the best paper submitted by a PhD student or recent doctoral graduate from a University Technology Centre.

Jialin was presented the award for his paper entitled, The aerodynamic response of fuel injector passages to incident acoustic waves, by the CEO of Rolls-Royce, Warren East, at the Sir Henry Royce Awards ceremony.

Joining the Loughborough University Technology Centre in 2012, Jialin’s research focuses on the unsteady aerodynamics of fuel injectors in response to incident acoustic waves. Since becoming a research associate at the UTC, he continues to work on fuel spray characteristics in the presence of acoustic disturbance.

Speaking of his award, Jialin comments: “I am delighted to have received this prestigious award from Rolls-Royce.  Not only is it recognition of my own work, but reflects the quality, importance and relevance of the work undertaken by the Loughborough UTC”.
