    Thorpe Wood Holiday Inn,
    An exciting opportunity for YOU to have your questions answered, by a panel of local representatives from a range of backgrounds. Each representative will give a short introduction and own opinions on their vision of engineering over the next 25 years, followed by audience participations in a question and answer style debate. This event will allow you to hear others opinions and give your own views. You may also ask your own questions in person, or have them read out for you on your beha

    Lotus Engineering is researching a concept for a future transportation fuel energy economy which would not require wholesale change of the supply and storage infrastructure (as hydrogen would) and will also not require massive changes to passenger vehicles as we know them today.

    Controlled Auto-Ignition (CAI) or Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition (HCCI) combustion is a combustion process which utilises homogeneous air/fuel mixture, but combustion is initiated by fuel self-ignition. It therefore combines features of both SI and CI combustion. During compression process, local in-homogeneity results in non-unified temperature throughout combustion chamber. When hotter parts overcome their activation energies, combustion in these parts starts. Energy extherm heats the

    The large Hadron Collider, a 27-kilometer long particle accelerator, the latest in a long series of experiments designed to probe the inner workings of matter. Located in a tunnel beneath the Swiss/French border near Gebeva, it was turned into a great fanfare in late 2008, An accident delayed operations by a further year and only in 2010 did physics data-taking start in earnest. The talk will cover the motivations for building particle accelerators, the history of particle physics and the machin
