Multi-Scale MRI/X-ray CT characterisation and Lattice Boltzmann modelling study of moisture movement in wood

Research Engineer

Building a multi-scale computational fluid dynamics model of moisture movement in wood. The fluid model is designed to simulate flow and diffusion through a real wood microstructure imaged by X-ray computed tomography. Validation and further material characterisation are provided by a portable MRI scanner – the Treehugger – designed, built and commissioned at the University of Surrey for in-situ measurements of living trees.
