Lecture: The Science of Safety – Jet Engines & Nuclear Reactors
March 01st 2018

Lecture: The Science of Safety – Jet Engines & Nuclear Reactors

The University of Liverpool invite you to attend the first lecture in the 2018 Science & Society lecture series; The Science of Safety: Jet Engines and Nuclear Reactors with Dr David Rugg, Senior Fellow for materials at Rolls Royce.

Despite having to operate in very demanding and complex environments, jet engines and nuclear reactors must have extremely low failure rates. The magnitude and timing of mechanical, aerodynamic and environmental damage make prediction of component durability a demanding science.

In this lecture, Dr Rugg will explore the exciting and experimental techniques that are providing the scientific understanding required to support safe design and operation.

Tuesday 13 March 5.30-7pm
Eleanor Rathbone Theatre, Eleanor Rathbone Building

After the lecture there will be a Q&A session, followed by an informal drinks reception.
