Activities

Stephenson Institute for Renewable Energy

Research staff from the Engineering School are contributing to projects in tidal generation, modelling of energy potential and sediment transport for tidal schemes, fluid modelling for fuel cells and nuclear power applications.

Participating staff: Ming Li, Ian Walkington, Xiaoxian Zhang

Adaptation to climate change

In a new initiative with the School of Environmental Sciences we are modelling climate change impacts and identifying / developing suitable engineering strategies, such as coastal defence and robust building design methods.

Participating staff: Hussain Al-Khalid, Xiaoxian Zhang, Jianguo Zhou

Engineering risk and uncertainty

We are working with colleagues in Mathematics, Environmental Sciences and Social Sciences to develop new engineering strategies that accommodate the uncertainties of climate change, shifting demographics and declining natural resources. Visit the Institute for Risk & Uncertainty.
