He has participated to three EU FP7 projects in the area of transports and aeronautics, in which he had supported the coordination activity: MAAT (about a cruiser feeder airship system), ACHEON (a thrust vectoring propulsion system by Coanda effect) and CROP (about Cyclorotoidal propulsion).

About

Michele Trancossi took a Senior Lecturer position at Sheffield Hallam University in November 2015. He obtained an MA in Mechanical Engineering at University of Parma and a PHD in Industrial Engineering at University of Modena and Reggio Emilia. He is a Italian Certified Professional Engineer (without limitation of sector of activity) and Member of engineering associations both International (ASME, SAE, and ASTM) and Italian (ATI and AIGE). 

He has been involved in different research projects focusing on the definition of new applications from basic physical principles, in different areas, such as heat transfer, fluid dynamics, energy optimisation, renewable energies, solar energy, minimisation of life cycle impacts, production of design configurations for energy efficiency, and application of IR sensors both to energy performance of buildings and to recognition of targets for flying vehicle to perform automatic VTOL operations assisted by physical measurements.

He has published more than 60 papers from 2009 and co-owns two international patents and five Italian ones. He has participated in three EU FP7 projects in the area of transports and aeronautics, in which he supported the coordination activity: MAAT (about a cruiser feeder airship system), ACHEON (a thrust vectoring propulsion system by Coanda effect) and CROP (about Cyclorotoidal propulsion). He is volunteering in ASTM standardisation committees about Sustainability, renewable energies and aeronautics. He has also participated to SAE AS4 committees about Jaus and its application into the aeronautic domain.

He has conducted an ample research activity on a multiplicity of arguments: heat transfer, fluid dynamics, energy optimization, minimization of life cycle environmental impacts, production of design configurations for energy efficiency.
