The success of our spin-out company has seen our research on structured adsorbents applied across the rail sector to improve rolling stock efficiency.
Engineering & Design REF 2021 impact case studies
From aircraft wings to concrete bridges, our research is having global impact. Read the stories behind our Research Excellence Framework submission.
Our modelling and testing methodologies have improved the manufacturing process of commercial aircraft wings, resulting in better quality parts.
We’ve developed assessment and strengthening techniques for ageing concrete bridges and structures. Our guidance is used by consulting engineers worldwide.
Our partnership with Siemens has produced new engine components and tools for faster technology generation.
We've developed experimental and simulation techniques to save CO2 emissions, the equivalent of removing 109,000 cars from the road every year.
Our methodologies can predict energy usage profiles and peak demand by monitoring only ~ 0.01% of the substations in an electricity distribution network.
Through space-based communication research we’ve influenced public policy and security. Our algorithms help keep GPS systems functioning and accurate.
The oil industry can use imaging to detect different components within multiphase flows. Our research in this area led to the founding of two startup companies.
These case studies are submitted to the Engineering Unit of Assessment.
