Set to play a pivotal role in the understanding of complex flows, the Centre brings together some of the leading researchers in the field to embrace new approaches to flow instrumentation and modelling - thereby benefiting the energy, manufacturing and process industries.
The flow of complex fluids and mixtures of fluids is at the heart of many industries. Our research focuses on novel measurement techniques for complex and multi-component flows, improving uncertainty through sensor diagnostics and close-coupling of modelling and measurement to allow end users to optimise their processes.

This project will advance the numerical modelling tools available to understand and quantify the underlying coastal processes and simulate the performance of defence structures (hard & soft) under extreme climate and the effects of sea-level rise.
This project is devoted to application of optical methods in index-matched two-phase flows, defining the range of the method applicability, and evaluate measurement errors. Developed flow measurement technique will be applied to characterisation of two-phase turbulence in a benchmark system with two counter-rotating impellers.
This project will investigate the use of mathematical optimisation tools to inform the design of concentrating solar thermal power systems. Success will make CSP systems more competitive with other renewables and promote more sustainable growth in the solar energy sector.
A computational fluid dynamics (CFD) project to use large eddy simulation (LES) to model the multiphase flow inside a pipeline using high-resolution time-resolved inflow data that has been obtained from an electrical capacitance tomography (ECT) device.
