A new opportunity for a Research Associate is available in the Department of Mechanical Engineering to work on numerical modelling of emissions for innovative combustion systems for aviation. The Research Associate will have the opportunity to work in a dynamic research environment and collaborate with European Universities.
In order to reduce the environmental impact of aviation, new low emission technologies have to be developed. The focus of this research is on the numerical investigation of a new technology for aero-engine combustors based on lean azimuthal flames. Numerical models for the prediction of soot and NOx in spray flames will be developed and used to evaluate and possibly improve the proposed technology. The research will be part of an international collaboration within the framework of the LEAFINNOX project, which involves Imperial College, University of Cambridge, ETH Zurich and University of Naples.
Duties and Responsibilities
The focus of this research will be both on fundamental research and simulations of innovative combustion systems.
This position will require implementation of models, simulations and development of post-processing tools.
