Bath University I-SEE Public Lecture: The Future of Automotive Propulsion

Tue 14 Nov 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 5:45 pm

The future of automotive propulsion’

Professor Chris Brace BEng(Hons) CEng PhD FIMechE, Professor of Automotive Propulsion, University of Bath

Abstract: The passenger car has been fundamental to the way our society has developed. It’s positive impact on the way we live is hard to understate. More recently the many challenges presented by the need for affordable personal mobility have been thrown into sharp focus. Issues such as global warming, local air quality concerns, sustainability and congestion are having a profound impact on the future of automotive propulsion systems. This is a time of unprecedented change, with new and emerging technologies competing with the established players. This talk explores some of the many problems that we face and the possible solutions that will allow us keep moving in the future.

Biography: Chris Brace is Professor of Automotive Propulsion and Deputy Director of the Powertrain Vehicle Research Centre at the University of Bath. He leads the Advanced Propulsion Centre Spoke for ICE System Efficiency, based at Bath. Chris leads a wide portfolio of propulsion systems based research including ICE systems; advanced transmission systems; hybrid and battery electric concepts. The research requires the intensive measurement of multi-physics processes, leading to greater insight into system behaviour under dynamic operating conditions.
