Applications are invited for the above post for a research project sponsored by the European Space Agency. The project aims to investigate the effectiveness of a type of bio-inspired micro-scale surface patterns in delaying the onset of boundary layer laminar-turbulent transition process in hypersonic flow through a series of carefully designed wind tunnel experiments. The experiments will be undertaken in the High-Supersonic Tunnel at The University of Manchester (UoM), which is part of the National Wind Tunnel Facility (NWTF) in the UK.
The successful candidate will join a research team who has an extensive track record in experimental fluid dynamics and flow control to undertake fundamental research aiming to unlock the potential of this type of novel surface patterns for flow control using a multidisciplinary approach. Reaction Engines Ltd is interested in the development of this technology and will participate in the project progress meetings to provide an industrial end-user perspective.
