The main areas of technical experience are in:

computational fluid dynamics

especially viscous flows found in many areas of mechanical and environmental engineering.

experimental fluid dynamics

especially the measurement of velocity, pressure and temperature.


especially to analyse situations where energy production is required, such as wind power, wave power and hydro power.

engineering design and product development

in particular the implementation of processes for carrying out design in industry.

Recently we have provided considerable advice on the assessment of research projects for government, and on the assessment of engineering qualifications. Chris is an active mentor to a number of professional engineers.
