Ashley Warrington

Beginning from an early age, I have designed and built ideas which formed the basis to study at Nottingham Trent University, BSc Product Design (Hons). En-keeping with my strong interests in mechanical design engineering, I have developed my logical and creative mindsets to achieve design ideas and solutions that solve problems quickly and effectively.

Working on challenging projects that have real impact for the client and wider population excite me and motivate me to work harder, to find the best solutions and capture crucial details that make a project successful.

Major Study Project:

Wave Generator Tank


WAVE is a renewable energy testing tank facility engineered to provide realistic environments to aid research and development into wave energy within Nottingham Trent University.

Due to the increasing requirements for energy diversification and reduction in global carbon emissions, alternative energy sources outside of solar and wind are being explored to try and reduce dependencies of fossil fuels.  Development of wave energy is primarily expensive in large-scale, although through the use of small-scale testing in a controlled simulation environment such as WAVE makes it possible for rapid testing of prototypes enhancing the development of devices cost effectively before large-scale sea trials.

The wave generator is controlled through the operation of a stepper motor driven 1st class lever design, with variable offsets. This enables a flexible design to create a variety of conditions for testing devices.

SAPA-HYDRO Aluminium Extrusion Project:

City_Rebel Bicycle Rack


The City_Rebel is the solution to urban luggage transport. The adaptive design enables the expandability to carry a range of load sizes making it idea for fast paced modern lifestyles. Constructed from Aluminium 6063, the product is resistant to weather and corrosion, enabling it to perform for a longer lifecycle than a steel variant; it is also significantly lighter which is extremely important when considering the center of gravity of a bike to how the rider feels, the strength is maintain also which is important for heavier loads. A rear tail light provides warning to other road users as an additional feature.
