The Energy Dice – exploring efficient transformation, transport, storage and application of thermal energy

Description
The world faces a 'global energy trilemma' – affordability, low carbon and security – and the race is on to find innovative solutions to radically transform how energy is supplied and used, and to make future systems more efficient and reliable. In fact, the best single solution to all these problems may already have been invented – by Professor Yulong Ding, University of Birmingham's founding Chamberlain Chair of Energy Storage, and one of the world's most influential researchers.

Creating a whirlwind of new knowledge about extreme wind events and their effects on built structures

Description
New paper by Dr Mike Jesson, Research Fellow in the School of Civil Enginerring, entitled 'Aerodynamic forces on the roofs of low-, mid- and high-rise buildings subject to transient winds' published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Wind Engineering and Industrial Aerodynamics examines the effect of wild winds on buildings by simulating thunderstorm downbursts in a lab, measuring their effects on building models of different heights.
