Data : Professor Grant has been active in
industrial fluid dynamics and laser anemometry research for more
than twenty years. He is Director of the Fluid Loading and
Instrumentation Centre (FLIC). His main area of research in
recent years has been the development and application of optical
and image processing techniques to various areas of engineering
flow measurement. He has more than one hundred and thirty
publications in this area.
Professor Grant has been active in engineering
measurement research for more than twenty years. He has
published more than one hundred papers on various experimental
and numerical studies in engineering. He has just completed
work as guest editor of a SPIE milestone volume on particle image
Originally specialising in fluid mechanics,
his work has centred on optical measuring techniques, machine
vision and neural networks applied to pattern recognition.
He frequently acts as a consultant to commercial organisations
and has managed a large number of industrially sponsored laboratory
studies. He has been responsible for attracting extensive
research funding allowing him to establish the Fluid Loading and
Instrumentation Centre of which he is Manager.
He is responsible for European and
Chinese exchange programmes and is co-ordinator for a European
network of Universities co-operating in laser measurement studies.
