FASTBLADE, Structural Composites Research Facility

Conchúr Ó Brádaigh

Energy Systems, Materials and Processes

FASTBLADE is commencing construction - see our facility site here.

The Structural Composites Research Facility (SCRF) is funded by a strategic equipment grant (EP/P029922/1). The grant started on the 1st of June 2017 and is due to complete on the 30sh of November 2020. The SCRF is to be setup as a Small Research Facility (SRF) and has been given the name FASTBLADE.

FASTBLADE will offer a suite of experimental and testing services to meet every client’s needs. The team can offer bespoke solutions to match every user’s needs and are supported by the world renown expertise and knowledge within the School of Engineering, University of Edinburgh.

ADEL: Advanced Dynamic spectrum 5G mobile networks Employing Licensed shared access

Prof Tharmalingam Ratnarajah

Digital Communications

Based on the negotiation meeting held in Brussels on 24th July 2013 under the 'Seventh Framework Programme for Research of the European Commission',  ADEL's aim is to develop future heterogeneous wireless networks of  higher capacity and energy efficiency thus setting the road-map for the adoption of spectrum flexible broadband wireless systems by 2020.

 

FLITES: Fibre-Laser Imaging of Gas Turbine Exhaust Species

Professor Hugh McCann

Digital Communications

The FLITES consortium aims to enhance turbine-related R&D capacity in both academia and industry by opening up access to exhaust plume chemistry with penetrating spatio-temporal resolution. This will underpin a new phase of low-net-carbon development that is already underway in aviation, based on bio-derived fuels, entailing extensive R&D in turbine engineering and combustion, and fuel product formulation.

GREENNET An early stage training network in enabling technologies for GREEN radio

Professor Harald Haas

Digital Communications

Greenet is an Initial Training Network (ITN) Marie Curie project that is focused on the analysis, design, and optimization of energy efficient wireless communication systems and networks.

ACCA: Atmospheric Carbon Capture

Professor Khellil Sefiane

Materials and Processes

Carbon emissions from fossil fuel combustion and change in land use are forcing a rapid increase in atmospheric CO2 levels leading to climate change. The initial implementation of plans to reduce the levels of CO2 is based on a combination of increased use of renewable energy and the implementation of carbon capture and storage from industrial sources and power plants on a wide scale.
