Developing Solutions for Flow Challenges

At Coventry University, the Research Centre in Fluid and Complex Systems is pushing back research boundaries and delivering real-world solutions to complex external challenges.

Our Centre brings together over 100 leading applied mathematicians, experimentalists, theoreticians, and specialists in scientific computing to tackle the latest challenges in complex systems, with a focus on fluid flows and their measurement. 

Our research benefits from an impressive and growing network of commercial, academic and government partnerships across the globe. Our unique combination of expertise and facilities from Coventry University and TÜV-NEL (NEL being the former National Engineering Laboratory), allows us to work across multiple industrial sectors to be the UK’s leading flow measurement and fluid mechanics research centre for the measurement and characterisation of complex flows.
