Researchers from the School's Institute for Multiscale Thermofluids (IMP) have revealed insights into how minute, yet powerful, bubbles form and collapse on underwater surfaces. The findings could lend valuable insight into damage caused on industrial structures, such as pump components, when these bubbles burst to release tiny but powerful jets of liquid.
On Tuesday 14 and Wednesday 15 May, the Hewitt-Reese Spring School for Modelling Multiphase Flows took place in honour of two pioneering fluid dynamicists – the School’s Professor Jason Reese and Professor Geoff Hewitt of Imperial College London – who both passed away earlier this year.
A team of staff from the School will run in the Edinburgh Marathon on Sunday 26 May 2019 in memory of Regius Professor Jason Reese who died on 8 March this year, fundraising to create a new student Engineering prize in Professor Reese's name.
The School’s Regius Professor of Engineering Jason Meredith Reese, who died suddenly at the early age of 51 on Friday 8 March, was an internationally renowned engineering scientist, respected academic and a valued mentor to many.
