Centre for Fluid and Complex Systems

flow meter with liquid insideClosely aligned to the needs of energy, manufacturing and process industries, the Centre investigates new approaches to instrumentation and modelling. Improved accuracy and real-time measurement has the potential to save businesses millions of pounds, positively impacting on plant control, product quality and safety systems. Our research encompasses all types of liquids and substances – from traditional oil and gas to flour and glass. We cover a vast range of uses: from understanding how diesel flows in zero gravity environments to assist space exploration, to considering sustainable development issues, such as the most effective ways of storing carbon underground or the effect of tidal flows on shore erosion.
