Thermofluids Research Group


The research activities of the Thermofluids Research Group covers internal combustion engines and fuels systems, turbomachinery, refrigeration and air-conditioning and microfluidics. This research impacts on industrial, environmental and medical problems.

Some of the interdisciplinary research activities are conducted in collaboration other groups at UCL, for example research on microfluidics with London Centre for Nanotechnology. The research group has strong links with leading technology companies and government research laboratories, such as BP, Cosworth Technology, Ford, Jaguar, Lotus Engineering and Shell, ABB Turbo, Ebara Corporation, Sulzer (MAN) Turbo, US Navy's David Taylor Model Basin. There are also many examples of projects where members of the group work with other universities, for example: theVirtual Centre of Excellence for IC Engines (with Leeds, Loughborough and Oxford), and with ETH Zurich on the design of centrifugal compressors.

The group has good experimental and computational facilities and both Thermodynamics and Fluids Mechanics laboratories were recently refurbished as a result of substantial multi-million pound investment by UCL.
