Fixed Term contract up to September 2024
Job purpose and duties:
The main purpose of the post is to carry out research in the context of the new MetOffice Strategic Priorities Fund (SPF) grant to develop an “Indoor Air Quality Emissions & Modelling System (IAQ-EMS)”. The University of Birmingham will – with collaborators at University of Reading, Cranfield and UC Irvine – develop ambitious software and data tools to advance the UK’s capacity for indoor air quality modelling, for estimation of emissions and exposure. This post focusses on Work Package 3, the development of a computational fluid dynamics tool for indoor spaces.
The successful candidate will be using an in-house LES code to model air flow in indoor spaces, including interactions with other rooms and outdoors, working in collaboration with the developing team of such code, Multiflow3D. The researcher will be able to understand the architecture of a parallel CFD code, run it in in HPC environments such as ARCHER2. They will be also capable of further developing some capabilities of the code, including the implementation of some basic chemical reactions between different species within the simulations.
