Hives Professor of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering
Steve Pickering's teaching is in the general area of thermofluids and he has taught or currently teaches thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, energy efficiency, thermal power systems and engineering design.
Steve is a part of the Composites Research Group.
Steve Pickering's is an engineer with an interest in the solving complex industrial problems in the thermofluids area through experimental and modelling research. His research interests cover: thermodynamics, fluid mechanics including two phase flow, combustion and heat transfer, where he combines experimental work with modelling, including the use of computational fluid dynamics.
Current research projects mostly involve collaboration and support from industry and include the following:
Future research will develop the major themes of the recycling of carbon fibre composites, thermal management of electrical and electronic systems.
