Chemical Energy Converters
Topic: Thermal Modelling Techniques - Part 1
Year: 2020
Supervisor: Richard Burke

AAPS CDT Students attended a series of summer masterclasses on the theme Thermal Modelling Techniques. In this session they gained an overview of engine and turbocharger modelling techniques and experience of different simulation software.

Chemical Energy Converters
Topic: Thermal Modelling Techniques - Part 2
Year: 2020
Supervisor: Richard Burke

AAPS CDT Students attended a series of summer masterclasses on the theme Thermal Modelling Techniques, this session gave an in depth overview of electric motor modelling and architectures.

Propulsion Electrification
Topic: Modelling and Simulation of Electric Vehicle Powertrain in SaberRD
Year: 2020
Supervisor: Peter Wilson

AAPS CDT Students attended a series of summer masterclasses on the theme Thermal Modelling Techniques, this session gave an overview of three different modelling domains within SaberRD: Electrical, Mechanical and Thermal. Students constructed a basic model for each of the three domains and simulated various typical scenarios, allowing them to solidify our knowledge whilst gaining experience working in SaberRD.

Sustainability and Low Carbon Transition
Topic: Life Cycle Assessment
Year: 2021
Supervisor: Marcelle McManus

This summer masterclass gave an an overview of sustainability and the opportunity to learn about the theory of LCA (attributional, consequential, use in existing and emerging technology/materials) and look into different case studies. 

Low Carbon Fuels
Topic: Low Carbon Fuels
Year: 2021
Supervisor: Tim Mays Chris Chuck

This masterclass was on the theme Low Carbon Fuels, where students learnt about the chemistry behind conventional fuels and what they actually are, what each family of components do and used this as a platform to overview the main routes to future renewable transport fuels. This masterclass also gave an introduction to Hydrogen.

Gas Purification
Topic: Gas Purification
Year: 2021
Supervisor: Antonio Exposito Semali Perera

This masterclass was on the theme Gas Purification where students learnt about different technologies for air cleaning, reduction of emissions and treatment of exhaust gas and gained an understanding in the differences between new and traditional technologies in terms of emissions.
