The Modelling and Simulation Centre

from the microstructure of materials to the flow of ocean currents

Key people

The Modeling and Simulation Center (MaSC) will strengthen the network of world renowned research centres at The University of Manchester. MaSC is based in the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering (MACE) and forms part of the Dalton Nuclear Institute, as well as having strong links with the Materials Performance Centre, UMARI, the Tyndall Centre and the Laser Processing Centre.

Our activities in solid mechanics and materials have seen great developments both in terms of volume of activity and in scientific advances. The diverse activities in thermal hydraulics research encompass fundamental science as well as an increasing level of support for industrial operations.  ‌

MaSC and Electricité de France collaboration

The Centre is jointly funded by the School and Electricité de France (EDF). Commenting on the Centre, Pierre-Louis Viollet, from EDF's research and development branch, said:

"For EDF, the joint creation of the Modelling and Simulation Centre represents a major partnership. It will benefit from over 10 years of cooperation between The University of Manchester and EDF R&D on simulation, and enhance worldwide development of energy research for the development of renewables as well as nuclear energy in the UK"
