|Placed On:||14th February 2019|
|Expires:||14th April 2019|
Salary Range: 15,000 - 20,000 HKD per month
Expected Start Date: 1st April, 2019 (later start dates in 2019 may also be considered)
The successful applicant will be part of a two-year project at HKUST. The project aims to enhance the aerodynamic performance of professional racing cyclists. The aerodynamic drag of professional track-cyclists at their top speed can account for up to 95% of the total power demanded. The successful applicant will be part of a team that focuses on both numerical and experimental tasks. The experiments will be conducted in a newly commissioned 2.5 m x 2 m low-noise wind tunnel at HKUST, and the computational modelling work will be conducted using on-site and off-site computational facilities.
The successful applicant will provide assistance primarily with computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations, however opportunities to assist in experiments may be possible.
Aerodynamics Acoustics and Noise control Technology Centre (AANTC)
The AANTC centre is led by Prof. Xin Zhang and it is based in the School of Engineering, which has a strong international reputation and consistently ranks highly among the top engineering schools. At the AANTC academic staff, research fellows and PhD students work together to develop advanced computational codes for aerodynamics, aeroacoustics and performance simulation, drag and noise reduction concepts to provide engineering solutions for industry. The centre possesses a suite of high-order computational aeroacoustic codes, and various noise and flow facilities. The group has an extensive global network of academic links and industry collaborations. For current projects and research at the AANTC, please see http://aantc.ust.hk.
