Project Title: Review of wind turbine simulation software and simulation of wind turbine structural dynamics using ADAMS/ANSYS Academic Research Areas: CAE Project Description: A review of the existing wind turbine simulation software packages should be carried out. ADAMS and ANSYS will be used to model a wind turbine structure. Different methods of modelling the flexible(…)
Project Title: Genetic Algorithms for Automotive Controller Design Project Description: Modern vehicles contain many advanced automotive systems – such as Electronic Stability Control, Cruise Control, ABS, etc – that require control systems to be designed using strict performance criteria (to satisfy ride/handling constraints, etc.). Genetic algorithms can be used to assist engineers in this controller(…)
Project Title: Genetic Algorithms for Lateral Stability Control of Aircraft Project Description: Genetic algorithms are powerful, adaptive search algorithms using principals from natural selection. They are of particular use in solving problems where the search space is noisy or ill-defined. Modern aircraft (such as Boeing 747s) demand controllers that are both robust and meet specific(…)
Project Title: 2D to 3D Manufacture Project Description: 3D sculptures’ use layered manufacturing techniques to produce complex 3D pieces of art on a relatively small scale. This project will investigate the potential to utilise associated manufacturing methods to produce medium to large scale pieces of art taking into account cost.
Project Title: Development of MRP manufacturing management system simulation Project Description: The object of this project is to further develop a number of simulations of manufacturing management systems to illustrate and teach real problems faced by a manufacturing company. It will attempt to integrate the existing simulations with relevant software to enable further detail to(…)
Project Title: Lean manufacturing Project Description: This project will investigate the application of lean manufacturing through surveys and look at in particular the significance of these techniques to companies during a downturn in demand.
Project Title: Rapid Manufacturing techniques applied to provide Anisotropic structures Postgraduate Project Suggestion (PPS) Project Description: The aim of this project is to design, make and test different types of structures to enable Anisotropic properties to be demonstrated. The manufacture will involve the use of Rapid Prototyping (manufacturing) and the testing will involve the use(…)
