Fluids Energy Turbo Expo 2017


Dr Ivor Day received his PhD fom the University of Cambridge in 1976. After working in power generation for 11 years, he returned to the Whittle Laboratory as a Senior Research Fellow - funded by Rolls-Royce. Apart from the supervision of PhD students, he has worked mostly in the experimental field, concentrating on problems which are not yet amenable to CFD analysis. His main interest is in the aerodynamic stability of axial compressors, but he has also worked on unsteady combustion, rain ingestion, bleed-slot design and tidal turbines. Ivor has received the ASME Gas Turbine Award six times, the John P Davis Award, the George Stephenson Prize and a Rolls-Royce Best Patent Award. He is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, a Fellow of the British Institution of Mechanical Engineers and, in 2010, was elected a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering.
