Rank Professor of Engineering, University of Cambridge, Department of Engineering
Paul Tucker is interested in taking PhD students.
Professor Paul Tucker is Rank Professor of Engineering and works within the Turbomachinery, Energy and Fluid Mechanics Division at the University of Cambridge. His key research interest is the computation of unsteady, turbulent, complex geometry aerodynamic flows.
Prior to joining the University of Cambridge, Professor Tucker worked as a Professor in the Civil and Computational Engineering Centre in the University of Wales and as a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Engineering at the University of Warwick. He is an Associate Editor of the AIAA Journal and a member of the ACME board.
Departments and Institutes
His current research interests include improving the efficiency of turbomachinery and the way this interacts with aircraft in order to reduce the environmental impact of gas turbines. Much of Professor Tucker's work, including these research areas, uses Large Eddy Simulation (LES) techniques.
Amongst many other research projects, Professor Tucker leads the Cambridge UGTP Whole Engine Computational Aeroacoustics Consortium (C2AC).
Professor Tucker teaches - CFD and GA2 - Turboexpander.
