Part of the Department of Engineering Science, the internationally-renowned Oxford Thermofluids Institute is located in the Southwell Building, a state of the art facility to the west of the city on Osney Island.

This building, opened by the Vice Chancellor in 2010 as part of the University of Oxford’s strategic investment in science and engineering, is currently seeing considerable expansion to accommodate our growing research teams and experimental test facilities. The institute houses the most sophisticated turbine and high speed flow facilities in the UK.

Our research team includes international experts in hypersonics, CFD, flow and heat transfer experiments and instrumentation.
