Matteo Migliorini is a Reseach Fellow in Experimental Propulsion Aerodynamics within the Propulsion Engineering Centre. He holds a MSc and a BSc in Mechanical Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Turin, Italy. During his MSc, he also studied also at the Ostbayerische Technische Hochschule (OTH) in Regensburg, Germany for the Master Thesis project in the LWS wind tunnel, with Dr. Stephan Laemmlein. Since 2017, he is undertaking a PhD research project at Cranfield University under the supervision of Prof. David MacManus and Dr. Pavlos Zachos. He focuses on Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) measurements for aero-engine complex intakes.

Current activities

  • Experimental investigation on the aerodynamics of complex aero-engine intakes at the UTC for Aero Systems Design, Integration and Performance. 
  • Use of Stereo Particle Image Velocimetry (S-PIV) to measure non-intrusively the S-duct intake flow distortion
  • Testing of S-duct intakes with inlet total pressure and swirl distortion
  • Development of tools and methods for unsteady flow distortion analysis.
  • Spectral analysis, Proper Orthogonal Decomposition and methods to track unsteady swirl distortion features.
  • Extreme distortion modelling with statistical methods such as Extreme Value Theory
  • Development of rigs and facilities for testing complex intakes
