We carry out multidisciplinary research at the interface between engineering and clinical orthopaedics.
Department of Mechanical Engineering research
Our research activities and expertise include design and manufacturing, machine systems, solid mechanics, materials, and thermo-fluids.
We lead research in fluid power, actuation, and the dynamics and control of electro-mechanical systems. We also run CPD courses and offer consultancy services.
We develop and design innovative materials with unique properties to improve technological, structural and manufacturing products and processes.
We conduct internationally recognised research that focuses on improving the efficiency and emissions of both diesel and petrol engines.
We investigate the theoretical, computational and experimental modelling of heat transfer and fluid flow related to turbomachinery.
Opening in 2021, our specialist hub supports collaborative research with the automotive industry to develop future generations of ultra-low emissions vehicles.
We bring together stakeholder communities to discuss how we can develop more sustainable, affordable energy for the future of our society and environment.
ADM @ Bath is a cross-disciplinary group with an active research and industrial portfolio in advanced design and manufacturing.
Our research in fluid dynamics covers internal and external flows, aircraft, micro air vehicles, acoustics, blood flow, porous materials and wind turbines.
We are a multidisciplinary team including engineers and scientists who promote sustainability through high-quality research and publications.
Our research has contributed to improvements in joint replacement surgery, helping to reduce healthcare costs and increase quality of life.
An algorithm developed at Bath has helped improve the process of manufacturing composite wings for the next generation of commercial aircraft.
Researchers at the University of Bath have developed a new way of designing and manufacturing bespoke prosthetic liners, in less than a day.
