PhD Studentship: Fluid Mechanics (AE0041)

Imperial College London - Aeronautics

Qualification Type: PhD
Location: London
Funding for: UK Students
Funding amount: £19,668
Hours: Full Time
Placed On: 10th November 2023
Closes: 31st January 2024
Reference: AE0041
 

Applications are invited for a Ph.D. studentship in the Departments of Aeronautics. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to conduct cutting-edge research in the field of fluid mechanics.

There are two potential topics in this post, and the PhD dissertation topic will be finalised after a discussion with the potential supervisor, Dr Yongyun Hwang:

1) Thermal convection with cross flow: This project will be exploring transition from spiral defect chaos observed in thermal convection to shear flow turbulence. Direct numerical simulation will first be involved, after which bifurcation and stability analysis of invariant solutions will be the main tools. If time is permitted, reduced-order modelling will be involved in the late stage of the project.
2) Stokesian dynamics simulation and continuum modelling of viscoelastic fluid: The first part of this project will involve Stokesian dynamics simulations of dumbbell model for polymer and will compare it with the existing models. In the late stage of the project, there will be physics-informed data-driven efforts of continuum modelling of the simulated model flow, with potential applications to the development of a new model for viscoelastic fluids.

Applicants should have a strong background in fluid mechanics, mathematics and scientific computing. Knowledge of transition, dynamical systems and optimisation (including machine learning) will be a plus. The applicants should also have a proven aptitude or willingness to conduct theoretical/computational work and a genuine passion for research. Applications are invited from candidates who possess (or expect to gain) a first-class honours MEng or higher degree or equivalent in Engineering, Applied Mathematics and Physics. The successful candidate will also be expected to submit publications to academic journals and to present their findings at major international conferences.

The deadline for the application is 31st of January, 2024.
