Professor Chris Brace

Chris’s research is in the area of automotive powertrain systems. He has a particular focus on the intensive measurement, analysis and control of multi-cylinder engine systems running under dynamic operating conditions. Problems that would benefit from greater mathematical insight include investigation of non-linear effects such as in-cylinder turbulence on combustion stability; the dynamic and thermal effects of friction in clutches on subjective vehicle performance; unsteady flow in compressors leading to the surge phenomenon. These problems have important applications in seeking to reduce the emissions of CO2 from mass market passenger cars.
