Researchers look to simplify dynamic systems design

The Engineer – 13 September 2012 | By Stuart Nathan A research project based at Bristol University aims to overcome some of the difficulties of designing dynamic systems, and could allow engineers to build more efficient wind turbines, safer buildings and even better microscopes. The five-year project has received £4.2m funding from the EPSRC. The current problem, explained […]
