Projects per year
Dr Oliver Pountney is a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. Oliver’s research focuses on thermal management of technologies that facilitate the decarbonisation of power generation and aircraft propulsion, specifically:
- Gas turbines – blade cooling, compressor cavity flows, and mainstream-purge aerodynamics
- Additively-manufactured heat exchangers
- Thermal management of hydrogen fuel cells for aircraft propulsion
Research highlights include:
- Award of a 50th Anniversary Prize Fellowship (University of Bath)
- Two x American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Best Paper Awards (2011 and 2021)
- Two x patents with Airbus
Oliver’s research has been carried out in collaboration with Siemens Energy, Rolls-Royce and GKN Aerospace through various industrially-funded and EPSRC supported projects.
- Director of Doctoral Studies for Mechanical Engineering
- Director of Doctoral Studies for the AAPS-CDT
- Associate Editor for ASME Journal of Thermal Science and Engineering Applications
