The mission of London Computational Solutions is to deliver advanced CFD technology to commercial engineering challenges. We develop high quality aerodynamic designs for real world performance.
Mark undertook his doctorate in 3D boundary layer laminar-turbulent transition prediction techniques for supersonic transport swept wings (what should have been Concorde's replacement) in Cambridge and then joined Rolls-Royce Aerospace (RR) to design jet engine compressors. He followed this with a spell in the RR Aerothermal Methods team developing and applying aerodynamics and structural design techniques in all areas of jet engine technology. Mark has also worked on turbo-chargers, combustion, oil tankers, HVAC and acoustics and for 12 years Formula 1 Racing cars at McLaren Racing (winning 44 races out of a total of 207). He has a track-record and passion for developing new fluid dynamics numerical techniques and rapidly deploying them in the real world environment to improve product performance. After a short stint as Chief CAE Engineer at Gordon Murray Design, Mark is now a Deputy Director at the Dept for Business, Energy and Industrial Design (BEIS) responsible for Programme Delivery of Science and Innovation for Climate and Energy. He is a Visiting Professor at the Dept of Aeronautics at Imperial College and a Fellow at the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications.
Spencer Sherwin is Professor of Computational Fluid Mechanics in the Aeronautics Department at Imperial College London. He is a world leading expert in the development and application of high order methods applied to aeronautical, automotive and biomedical flows completing his doctorate in Princeton. He leads a team of researchers focusing on the development and application of parallel spectral/hp element techniques for solving partial differential equations, applying these techniques using direct numerical simulation and stability analysis to a range of applications including biomedical flows and separated/bluff body flows of relevance to offshore engineering and vehicle aerodynamics. Spencer is a Fellow of both the Royal Academy of Engineering and the Royal Aeronautical Society.
