We promote and support collaborative academic and industry-sponsored research in energy harvesting and energy efficiency, water quality and water resources management, wind engineering, and environmental modelling.
The Centre for Wind, Waves and Water was established in 2006 with the mission of promoting and supporting collaborative academia and research sponsored by industrial partners in various fields of energy, water and environment.
The centre is widening the understanding and knowledge transfer of quantitative and qualitative aspects related to energy harvesting and efficiency, water resources management and environmental modelling through its many advanced laboratories. These facilities, including the Fluids Laboratory and the Boundary Layer Wind Tunnel, are accessible to talented students studying in the field and our industry partners.
Our Boundary Layer Wind Tunnel is designed to conduct experiments for the studies of dispersion in urban flows, wind loads on buildings, wind energy, fluid-structure interaction and atmospheric turbulence.
