3 Minute Thesis presented at the Cranfield Doctoral Network Annual Event 2018. Winner of the 3 Minute Thesis competition.

The contamination and behaviour of water in aircraft fuel systems remains a significant area of global research interest following several aircraft incidents. Water and particulates in fuel may lead to ice formation. The resulting ice formed may eventually block the fuel filters and feed pipes creating safety problems. In order to engineer a lasting solution to the...
