    Micro-Engineering Evening 13th May 2015

    17:15
    19:30

    Speakers: Cardiff University PhD students and research assistants

    Venue: MAIN lecture theatre, opposite Trevithick Building, The Parade, Cardiff University CF24 3AA

    CIWEM Welsh branch (supported by Cardiff University) would like to invite you to attend an Micro-presentation evening on 'Environmental Engineering', Wednesday 13th May 2015.

    PhD and research assistants working on environmental, water and modelling topics will each provide a five-minute micro-presentation on their area of interest. These 'elevator pitch' style presentations will provide attendees with a broad appreciation of Cardiff University's environmental research interests.

    This event will help promote greater understanding of Cardiff University's research activities, and provide practitioners with access to cutting-edge research, which should help them in their day-to-day jobs. By developing closer working relationships between academic and industry practitioners will be able to highlight issues of emerging concern and help direct the direction of key research strands going forward.

    All the speakers are PhD students and research assistants within Cardiff University's Hydro-environmental Research Centre, the Director of which is Professor Roger Falconer.  Topics covered by the Centre are numerous and varied, and include the proposed Severn Barrage, faecal coliforms in the coastal environment and hydrodynamic modelling of estuarine and coastal waters.

    Speakers confirmed:

    Christopher Kiiza - Modelling Influence of Inflow Hydrology,  Media Configuration and Vegetation on Performance of Bio-filtration Systems Treating Urban Stormwater

     

    Yusri Jalil - Physical Modelling of Car Movement Under Various Flood Conditions

     

    Yan Liu - Large eddy simulation of flow over wall-mounted spheres

     

    Paul Evans - In the Wake of Natural Obstructions - Results from Field Observations

     

    Ken Chua - Free Surface Simulation on Flow with Large Bed Roughness

     

    Richard McSherry - Hydraulic resistance in turbulent rough-bed flows

     

    Ademola Agunbiade - Modelling Water Level Changes along River Taff and exploring the potential of Constructed Wetlands to Control Flooding

     

    Ellis Blackmore - Digital insights in the water industry

     

    Candice Constantine - Natural Flood Management: tools & techniques

     

    ​Chris Ellis - Greener Grangetown
