Campus: South Kensington, London
Applications are invited for a Research Assistant (PhD Studentship) in the Department of Aeronautics in the general area of data-driven modelling and nonlinear control of fluid structure interactions. The successful candidate will join a leading team of researchers at the heart of London, benefit from a European training network, and conduct research in collaboration with civil aviation manufacturer Airbus. The envisaged impact of this fundamental research project is to enable zero-emissions flight of future aircraft, opening opportunities for collaboration with the Department of Aeronautics’ new £25m Brahmal Vasudevan Institute for Sustainable Aviation.
The post (36 months) is funded by the UKRI as part of Imperial College’s role as Associate Partner in the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Doctoral-Training-Network (DTN) “ModConFlex”. The DTN will host 14 postgraduates across seven European academic institutions, coordinated by the University of Wuppertal, Germany. This project is supervised by Dr Andrew Wynn and Prof. Rafael Palacios and the successful applicant will join Imperial’s Aeroelastics Lab (http://www.imperial.ac.uk/aeroelastics), which specialises in computational methods for aeroelastic simulation and control of wind turbines and next-generation aircraft.
The research aims to enable nonlinear real-time control of physical systems characterized by strong fluid structure interactions. To achieve this, the project will develop a state-of-the art data-driven framework that can identify nonlinear models of minimal order directly from high fidelity aeroelastic simulations. Additionally, we will create nonlinear control algorithms that exploit the structure of the identified minimal-order models to enable real-time control in nonlinear aeroelasticity. There is potential for field testing of control algorithms with Associated Partner Airbus.
