Overview of the Fluids Cluster

Overview of the Fluid Mechanics Research group

Research interests cover fundamental; fluid mechanics, offshore and coastal engineering, environmental fluid mechanics, hydraulic structures, building ventilation and two-phase flows, particularly those relating to sediment transport.
