FPT Industrial, brand of CNH Industrial dedicated to the design, production and sale of powertrains for on and off-road vehicles, marine and power generation applications, has purchased Dolphin N2 and its revolutionary recuperated split-cycle engine – developed by scientists and engineers at the University of Brighton and Ricardo.
The engine is being hailed as extremely efficient, making it more comparable to a fuel cell than to a traditional engine. It also produces near-zero emissions of harmful nitrogen oxide (NOx) – a world first that has been pioneered by the University.
University of Brighton experts have helped develop a solar-powered car.
Built by students from Ardingly College and Ifield Community College in West Sussex, the vehicle has been shipped to Australia where it is taking part in a 3,000 kilometer outback challenge. Read More →
A racing car built by engineering students and destined to race at Silverstone this summer has been unveiled on the site of the University of Brighton’s soon to open new car and bike parking facility at its Moulsecoomb campus.
The car has been designed and built from scratch by Brighton Racing Motors, a team of undergraduate students from the University’s School of Computing, Engineering and Mathematics and will compete in this year’s Formula Student event at Silverstone, the home of British motor racing. Read More →
In part two of our film series documenting Brighton Racing Motors team journey to Silverstone for the Formula Student competition, we asked our team of final year engineering students – why do you do this?
Watch the video to find out what motivates them as they construct the car
Ground breaking new engine technology, based on world-leading research at the University of Brighton, is opening the way to production of the worlds’ first near zero-emission heavy internal combustion engine.
The CryoPower Cool Combustion process enables recovery of otherwise wasted exhaust heat which is then cooled via the injection of a small amount of liquid nitrogen. The liquid nitrogen acts as both a coolant and an additional source of energy, reducing emissions and improving fuel efficiency.
Engineering students from the University of Brighton have been learning valuable skills at the European Space Agency Academy’s Training and Learning Facilities in Belgium.
The five students, who are studying either Aeronautical or Mechanical Engineering masters degrees, spent four days at ESEC-Galaxia in Redu, Belgium, in preparation to test their cutting-edge technology in zero-gravity in Bordeaux, France in the Autumn.
During their time in Belgium, the students – whose project team name is PHP Cubed – have gained insights from industry experts and taken part in space-based activities including walking on the surface of the ‘moon’ via a virtual reality headset. Read More →
