What the webinar will address
In this talk, Professor Morgans will be presenting her latest findings on sound (aeroacoustics), flames and aerodynamics for a low carbon future, including thermoacoustic instability and bluff body aerodynamics.
The aerodynamic drag of a road vehicle is the dominant source of driving resistance at high speeds; Professor Morgans will be speaking on the newest insights into the wake behind the vehicle, including the modelling, simulation and active control of random bi-modal wake switching events.
The talk will also touch upon...
- The fundamentals of thermoacoustic instability;
- Some of the multi-scale methods available for its computational prediction;
- Research avenues relevant to the move towards zero-carbon fuels; and
- How bluff body aerodynamics can contribute to energy demand reduction for electric road vehicles.
