Hydon appointed to LMS editorial board

Peter Hydon has been appointed to the editorial board of the “LMS Journal of Computation and Mathematics“.  The aim of the LMS JCM is to publish internationally-leading papers addressing topics in computational pure and applied mathematics, including papers at the interface between mathematics and computer science.  The LMS JCM is an electronic-only open-access journal. The […]


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 […]
