Our key members of staff at James Weir Fluid Laboratory (JWFL) explore various aspects of fluid mechanics with application to Oil/Gas, Aerospace and Manufacturing industries in addition to biological and environmental systems. At JWFL we have access to a wide range of numerical tools and experimental facilities to explore the fluid flow phenomena over all relavenat scales and a wide range of complex systems.
