Wind power is presently one of the fastest growing forms of electrical generation. Offshore wind represents the most technically challenging phase of this power exploitation. Recent bid prices for offshore wind farms show that the cost of these developments is reducing. Prof David Infield will provide an overview of this exciting technology.

The use of fossil fuels to power transportation rightly means that action has to be taken if we are to avoid climate change. The lecture discusses the scale of the challenge, some of the alternatives to the incumbent technology, whether these are practical to implement within the economic model, and postulates an alternative scenario which will also allow decarbonization of petrochemicals and other transport modes. The conclusion reached, however, may not be entirely in line with current policy

If you drive a new (or relatively new) car, van, lorry, or bus, you have probably noticed that its brakes are very effective and quite clever. In this lecture, starting from the basic theory of brake and braking system design for cars and commercial vehicles, explanations are given about how modern road vehicle braking systems are not only designed to achieve safe braking but also to deliver active vehicle safety through the use of the brakes to assist the driver with vehicle stability.
