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
