Dr. Craig Meskell (TCD)

 

Dr. Craig Meskell is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering in Trinity College, Dublin. His primary degree is in Aeronautical Engineering from QUB. He earned his PhD for work on flow-induced vibration in heat exchanger tube bundles. He has also been a Visiting Professor at McMaster University.  His technical expertise is in the area of unsteady fluid mechanics, especially when coupled with noise, vibration or structural interaction. For nearly a decade, he has focussed his work almost exclusively on power generating and energy conversion applications, having been active in the field of aircraft noise at a European level. He has written over forty peer reviewed papers on his work.

 

 

Recent and ongoing projects include

  • flow-induced vibration in nuclear steam generators
  • flow-induced noise in gas heat exchangers
  • system identification for wave energy conversion devices
  • modelling of flow-induced vibration in large, commercial scale wind turbines
  • and energy efficiency through optimized compressed air use in industrial scale manufacturing sites

Industrial collaborators include

  • EDF
  • Wavebob
  • and I2E2 partners (Intel, HP, Xerox, DePuy, Analog Devcies and Rusal).

Support for his work on energy devices has come from SFI, IRCSET, EI, HEA. His favourite colour is red
