Turner's paper appears in "Fuel"

The article `A breakup model for transient diesel fuel sprays’ was recently published in FUEL and examines a new approach to modelling how diesel jets breakup into droplets after injection into an internal combustion engine, as well as the shape of the spray produced. The model uses the results of hydrodynamic stability theory to define […]

Aston & Derks in MILES funded project

The project “Mathematical Modelling of HDL cholesterol in males and females” has been funded by the MILES programme in November.  Some background on the project follows.  Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the world (WHO, 2009).  One of the many risk factors is low HDL cholesterol.  HDLs are a heterogenous group of […]
