Overview and Ethos
The Spray Research Group’s (SRG) is part of the Engineering Research Centre at the University of Salford and is led by Professor Ghasem G. Nasr who reformed the Group on joining the University in 2001. He is a recognised international expert with a strong industrially linked background in spray related R & D over a period of some 22 years.
The group has an ethos to carry out fundamental and applied research to meet the needs of industries involved in all aspects of spray utilization, via both applied and fundamental research. SRG’s research expertise covers the production of sprays, the structures of sprays and interaction with fluid/boundary interactions, mixing, vaporization and combustion.
We have extensive hands-on experience in most fields of manufacturing process performance, process control, and measurement techniques involving sprays.
The group has a wide variety of experience in applying experimental and computational modelling techniques, utilising state of the art facilities to fundamental and industrial and commercial applications of sprays and the design of atomisation devices.
Our expertise also extends to fluid mechanical and instrumentation related R&D in the Petroleum and Gas Industries.
Short and medium consultancy and development projects may be carried out to address the specific problems and challenges of different clients, or long term (typically 2-3 years) programmes may be arranged, supported by government or industrially funded research contracts.
In all cases Salford places a great emphasis on commercial confidentiality to maintain market competitiveness.
