Thermo-Fluids Mechanics Research Centre Technical Seminar Series

The Thermofluids Centre is holding a series of fortnightly technical seminars on various turbo-machinery related topics. These are presented by current Thermo-Fluids Centre staff, and doctoral students. The seminars take place during lunch times in the Thermofluids Centre, top floor, in the seminar room TF-26. Refreshments are provided. If you are interested in attending, please contact Mr. Harri Koivisto, h.koivisto@sussex.ac.uk, as spaces are limited. The seminars are free to attend, open to the members of the University and the public.

If you would like to come and join us, the schedule for the remaining spring/summer term 2017 seminars is as following:

DATE(Wednesdays 12:00-13:00)  PRESENTER TOPIC (subject to small changes)
14.06.2017 Daniel Payne Experimental measurement of ingress in a single stage axial turbine test rig.
28.06.2017 Thomas Irps Experimental study of grid generated turbulence and boundary layers in wind tunnels.
12.07.2017 Seyed Mostafa Fazeli Experimental heat transfer and flow structure measurements inside a rotating multiple cavity test rig, using laser doppler anemometry. 
26.07.2017 Harri Koivisto Experimental measurement of local heat transfer coefficients and flow structures inside a stator-rotor test rig using thermochromic liquid crystal, high frequency pressure transducers and hot film probes. 

 

The next series of technical seminars will begin in September 2017. Information on these will be published on this website in due course.
