Profile

Dr James Scobie is a Lecturer and a member of the Turbomachinery Research Centre.

James obtained a MEng (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Bath, followed by a PhD in experimental gas turbine fluid dynamics. On graduation he continued as a Post-doctoral Research Associate before being appointed as a Prize Fellow in 2015. Previously he has spent time working for Rolls-Royce plc.

Research

James’s research is in the efficient use and management of gas turbine secondary air systems used for turbine cooling. Areas of interest include:

  • Experimental modelling of hot-gas ingestion through turbine rim seals
  • Fluid dynamics of rotating flow systems
  • Novel shaft sealing technologies
  • Interaction of sealing and mainstream flows in turbines 

Willing to supervise doctoral students

Interested in supervising students studying;

  • Fluid dynamics
  • Gas turbine technologies
  • Internal air systems and seals
  • Thermal imaging techniques
