iPhones and Dysons: using fluid dynamics to tailor technology
Ian Griffiths (University of Oxford)
As technology continues to advance, new strategies that involve a range of scientific disciplines are required. Mathematicians can provide frameworks to predict operating regimes and manufacture techniques. In this talk we present two case studies: the fabrication of precision glass, for smartphones and new flexible devices; and the development of superior filters for vacuum cleaners. In each case we use asymptotic analysis to determine the fabrication protocol required to produce a desired final product.

Being a lab group, experiments are a big part of what we do. We are lucky in that the typical experiments we carry out are beautiful on the eye. To see this for yourself, take a moment to browse our videos on YouTube.
