Our research at the University of Leeds has an excellent and recognised track record in development and application of process tomography. In the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2021, 97% of the research activity submitted to the Engineering Unit of Assessment (UoA12), which includes Chemical and Process Engineering, were assessed as “world-leading” or “internationally excellent”.
Process tomography has been recognised as an advanced and effective visualisation and measurement technology for current and future manufacture. Particularly, it is replacing gamma-ray attenuation based densitometer in industry and applying to national/EU flow laboratories as a standard multiphase flow visualisation technology for future metrology, which was assessed by European Metrology Association.
Our current research focuses on advanced measurement and visualization for multiphase flow research, Gas-oil-water metrology and industrial metering, Ultrasound-electrical effect and electrical impedance tomography spectrum analysis for characterization of particles in colloidal suspensions, and liquid measurement in zero gravity.
