Dr Dawei Wu is an Associate Professor in Mechanical Engineering and an EPSRC Fellow at the University of Birmingham.
His research strength lies in zero carbon fuels (properties/spray/combustion) and zero emitting propulsion technologies for heavy transport. His research grant portfolio includes acting as the Principal Investigator to develop a novel ammonia/hydrogen dual-fuelled ship propulsion system; as a Co-Investigator in multiple ongoing EPSRC, EU MSCA and industrial projects for fundamental physics of fuel spray and combustion; and disruptive propulsion technology development for HGVs, rail and marine applications.
He is a ‘Fuel’ section topic editor of Energies and a Fuels and Lubricants Committee Member of SAE.
He is involved in the EPSRC Network for Hydrogen-fuelled Transportation and is now the Work Package lead on the MariNH3 programme grant for Propulsion System Scalability Analysis.
