Energy efficient aerospace and automotive structures

Overview

Our research into energy efficient aerospace and automotive structures is a response to the need for society to use less energy and other resources.

Current activities include design issues in energy efficient vehicles and products for limited resources.

A key aspect of this research lies in optimising the design of automotive and aerospace vehicles through the application of advanced materials and optimisation algorithms that result in lighter weight vehicles which, in turn, consume less energy during the operational phases of the lifecycles.
