Andy Woods

Prof. Andy Woods has research interests in a range of fluid flow processes, many including phase changes. The character of the work includes both theoretical analysis and experimental modelling.

His research has explored a wide variety of problems, including:

  • the dynamics of explosive volcanic systems: both subsurface and atmospheric processes associated with such volcanism, and the related topic of two phase flow in pipelines
  • geothermal systems, especially superheated systems, in which there is continual water- vapour phase change, and fluid-mineral dissolution
  • models of traffic flow dynamics
