New research grant to support research into digital twins for high-value engineering applications
James Law and John Clark are part of a team led by David Wagg (from the Department of Mechanical Engineering) that have been awarded £890k of grant funding by The Alan Turing Institute to support research into digital twins for high-value engineering applications. The DTHIVE project will be carried out by a team of researchers from the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre and the Faculty of Engineering. The overall mission is to establish a centre of excellence for research into digital twins for high-value engineering applications.
The project will focus on applications relating to aerospace, manufacturing and energy use in buildings. The project runs from October 2021 until March 2022, and is intended to deliver working prototypes in the three application areas defined above. The primary scientific objective is to investigate the time-evolving behaviour of digital twins.
The University’s four flagship institutes bring together our key strengths to tackle global issues, turning interdisciplinary and translational research into real-world solutions.
