Funding information (fully funded for UK, EU and international students)
Annual tax-free bursary of approximately £18,622 pa, plus tuition fees (£5590 for UK or £14,905 for International and EU applicants).
The advancement and increasing growing prevalence of computer-based applications such as artificial intelligence, data analysis, and virtual reality relies on ever-growing computational ability. Providing this capability relies on continued development of high-performance electronic devices, which brings with it tremendous challenges in terms of thermal management. Over the past decades, heat flux requirements close to the order of 1000 W/cm2 have been reported. Conventional heat transfer methods may no longer be capable of addressing the issues.
The interface between phases has brought benefits to heat transfer with acceptable pressure drops. This project aims to control the interface together with its corresponding impact on the heat transfer performance. The combined experimental (flow visualization) and numerical (VOF model) methods will be carried out to address its impact to the heat transfer process.
The applicant should have a relevant degree, ideally with a background (or strong interest in developing knowledge) in the following areas:
Applications are invited from individuals with a first or upper second-class degree (or equivalent) in a relevant discipline such as, Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, and Chemical Engineering. A master’s degree is essential. We are seeking applicants with very good experimental, analytical and programming/simulation skills.
The studentship is open to UK/EU and international applicants.
