Investigation into Selective Catalyst Reduction spray formulation and use of various liquid reductants Non-funded

Institute for Future Transport & Cities | Engineering, Environment and Computing

Studies assume that all the reductant is evaporated at the entry of the SCR domain because of the long mixing length, but this may not be the case in the close-coupled system with a much shorter mixing length. Although the droplet deposition problem could be avoided by other means, such as calibration, this may not work at extreme operating conditions, e.g. low mass flow rate and low temperature. Since the active SCR system will be the major emissions control device in the next generation diesel engines, it is important to have a thorough understanding of such failure modes and find ways to minimize its impact on product development and warranty. This study will be focused on injection of different reductants’ droplets of various fractions into SCR to investigate their impact on system efficiency.


Exploring Mixed-State Wetting of Laser Surface Engineered Polymeric Materials Non-funded

Institute for Future Transport & Cities | Engineering, Environment and Computing

This project will make inroads to achieve a better understanding of the wetting nature of laser surface engineered materials exhibiting a mixed-state wetting regime and will add to the current work being conducted in the field of wetting regimes and wetting transitions.


Exploring the impact of industry 4.0 on the use of lasers in battery manufacture Non-funded

Institute for Future Transport & Cities | Engineering, Environment and Computing

This research project will investigate how the application of industry 4.0 and laser material processing can be readily applied to the battery manufacturing industry in order to bring about the efficiencies needed. As a result, the project will make inroads into the best course of action for applying laser technology into industry 4.0 so that a road map can be ascertained as to the best course of action to bring about a paradigm shift in the battery manufacturing industry.


Development of a novel approach for assessing crash safety of lightweight vehicles Non-funded

Institute for Future Transport & Cities | Engineering, Environment and Computing

Coventry University has been voted ‘Modern University of the Year’ three times running by The Times/Sunday Times Good University Guide. Ranked in the UK’s top 15 (Guardian University Guide), we have a global reputation for high quality teaching and research with impact. Almost two-thirds (61%) of our research was judged ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014.
