A PhD studentship is available at Aerodynamics Acoustics and Noise control Technology Centre (AANTC) at HKUST. The PhD student will be part of a research group that focuses on both numerical and experimental methods to improve aerodynamic performance for performance sports. The research will be centred around a newly commissioned large low-noise wind tunnel at HKUST, and the computational modelling work will be conducted using on-site and off-site computational facilities. The position is a part of an exciting opportunity to work with professional racing teams and racing car professionals. The thesis research topics may include one or more of the areas below:
Key requirements include (but not necessarily mandatory):
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.
