Dynamics and Motion

Areas include:

  • Applied Aerodynamics (Wind Tunnel Platform and FLAIR);
  • Aerodynamics;
  • Energy (extension to aerodynamics including rolling resistance etc...);
  • Aero acoustics measuring (wind induced noise-interaction between wind and vehicle which generates wind noise);
  • HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning);
  • Wind Engineering (structural loads and pedestrian level winds of supporting infrastructure);
  • Mechanical Systems Design;
  • Computer simulation;
  • High speed train aerodynamics;
  • Rail/wheel contact mechanics-carried out many three-dimensional -wheel-rail contact simulations; and
  • Inter-modal freight train energy efficiency.
