PhD Studentship: Gas Turbine Internal Air System Sealing Design

University of Surrey - Department of Mechanical Engineering Sciences

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship within the Rolls-Royce funded ThermoFluid Systems University Technology Centre at the University of Surrey.

The design of sealing technology within a gas turbine engine is critical to the efficiency of modern engines. This project will concentrate on the modelling of labyrinth seals using finite element (FE) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) codes. The project will be in collaboration with Rolls-Royce and will involve regular meetings with Rolls-Royce stakeholders.
