Heriot-Watt University and the University of Edinburgh welcome the outstanding results of REF2014 for the Edinburgh Research Partnership in Engineering (ERPE). 94% of our overall research activity is world-leading or internationally excellent. This, combined with the number of academic staff involved, makes Edinburgh the UK powerhouse in Engineering.
Professor Mercedes Maroto-Valer, interviewed by Dr Gabriela Medero and Dr Aruna Ivaturi, will be sharing tales of her career to date; the highs and lows, the pivotal times, people who made a difference, key events and life stages.
Dr Martin Crapper and Dr Simon Smith, working in conjunction with Prof Jim Crow in Archaeology have secured £250k funding from the Leverhulme Trust for a major study on the engineering behind the water systems of ancient Constantinople.
DEM Solutions and the University of Edinburgh formalize strategic relationship to enable greater collaboration and knowledge transfer between the two leaders at the forefront of research, application and adoption of DEM simulation of bulk materials.
The School of Energy, Geoscience, Infrastructure & Society is a multidisciplinary school teaching across all disciplines relevant to the construction industry. Research is user focused and delivers solutions of practical value to industry and society.
ERPE research into shell structure design has worldwide impact in the storage and handling of granular solids. A core element of this research is to enhance and update EU design recommendations such as the Eurocodes (EN) and US (ASME and ACI) standards. With over 75% of the material feedstock industry being granular, ERPE research achieves impact in bulk materials handling across many industries.
