PhD Studentship: Experimental Aerodynamics and Environmental Flows

University of Southampton

Qualification Type: PhD
Location: Southampton
Funding for: UK Students, EU Students
Funding amount: Full tuition plus, for UK students, an enhanced stipend of £15,009 tax-free per annum for up to 3.5 years.
Hours: Full Time
Placed On: 3rd July 2020
Closes: 31st August 2020
 

Supervisor: Dr Christina Vanderwel 

Project description

There are two openings for PhD students to work on “Simulating urban air pollution in the lab”. The aim of this research is to apply novel laboratory techniques to simulate wind patterns and air pollution in urban areas. One project will focus on indoor air quality while the other will focus on outdoor air quality. These experiments will provide cutting-edge measurements that will improve our capability to model and predict urban air quality. 

You will become a part of a group of highly motivated researchers in the experimental fluid mechanics research laboratory whose efforts are directed towards using state-of-the-art diagnostics to understand the physics of turbulent flows. We are part of the National Wind Tunnel Facility of the UK (www.nwtf.ac.uk) and have several wind tunnels and water channels on site for studying experimental fluid mechanics (see www.southampton.ac.uk/windtunnels/

Applicants should have a keen interest in Fluid Mechanics and possess good analytical skills. An aptitude for experimental research work is desirable. Candidates require (or are expected to gain) a good upper-second or first-class honours degree in a relevant discipline (Engineering, Physics, Mathematics etc). 

If you wish to discuss any details of the project informally, please contact Dr Christina Vanderwel, Aerodynamics and Flight Mechanics Research Group.
