Title of studentship: INDIGO – Integration and DIGital Demonstration of Low-emission Aircraft Technologies and Airport Operations
Starting date: June 2023
INDIGO is a H2020 European Research project, in collaboration with a number of universities and research institute across Europe. The main objective of INDIGO is to (i) to use multi-fidelity experimental and numerical tools to develop and assess technologies targeted for low-emission (noise and exhaust) aircraft; (ii) to establish a framework for evaluating the technologies with robust uncertainty quantification process. The project will specifically address read-world applications of technologies which can be readily assimilated by the aircraft and airport operations. The students will have access to our state-of-the-art aeroacoustic wind tunnel and high-performance computing facilities. The students will have the opportunity to work closely with research and industrial partners, attend workshops, consortium meetings, and present the results at relevant international conferences.
The PhDs will focus on experimental and numerical (digital-twin) studies of the low-emission, low-noise aircraft configurations with distributed propulsion systems:
Applicants must hold/achieve a minimum of a Master’s degree (or international equivalent) in a mathematics, or engineering discipline. Applicants without a Master’s qualification may be considered on an exceptional basis, provided they hold a first-class undergraduate degree. Please note, acceptance will also depend on evidence of readiness to pursue a research degree.
The successful candidate will have knowledge of aerodynamics, fluid mechanics and programming.
Applicants must meet the University’s English language entry requirements.
Funded by Horizon Europe H2020 for 3.5 years with an enhanced stipend rate. Funding is subject to confirmation of eligibility and award.
