Personal profile

Research interests

I am interested in the experimental modelling of gas turbine fluid dynamic phenomena with a view to scale experimental measurements from rig to engine operating conditions. Specific topics of interest include:

  • Fluid dynamics and heat transfer in turbine secondary air systems
  • Film and internal cooling
  • Interaction between main and egress flow paths in high pressure turbines with end-wall contouring
  • The use of thermochromic liquid crystals and infrared thermography for flow visualisation and heat transfer measurements

My research is conducted with the following key objectives:

  • To further scientific understanding within the gas turbine and wider academic communities through publication
  • Assisting engine designers in their goal of improving gas turbine operating efficiency

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
