City University London

The group at City University London, which resides within the School of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences, has been leading internationally the effort to understand the mechanism of cavitation initiation and development in fuel injection systems that range from high and medium speed 4-stroke engines for passenger cars to railway locomotives and Diesel generator sets and then up to large 2-stroke, low speed marine engines. Their experience is represented by more than 50 papers in this area of engine technology, including keynote and invited presentations at relevant industrial meetings and international conferences. In addition, City has contributed much of the fundamental research used to develop International Standards for comparative cavitation erosion testing of materials used for hydraulic machine surfaces.

City University London, in addition to the research work, will have the management responsibility of the proposed Institute.
