PhD Studentship: Simulation and Control of Isolated and Tandem Rotor Configurations

University of Bristol

Qualification Type: PhD
Location: Bristol
Funding for: UK Students, EU Students, International Students
Funding amount: £20,000
Hours: Full Time
Placed On: 14th November 2023
Closes: 12th February 2024

Location: School of Civil, Aerospace, and Design Engineering

The project:

This PhD project is a part of a larger EU-funded multi-institutional project entitled ‘eVTOL Multi-Fidelity Hybrid Design and Optimization for Low Noise and High Aerodynamic Performance’ (eVTOLUTION). The candidate will perform mid-fidelity UVLM-VPM based simulations to characterise the aerodynamic and aeroacoustic performance of both isolated and tandem rotor configurations. The candidate will also develop multi-fidelity machine learning models based on mid-fidelity numerical data enriched by high-fidelity experimental data to construct surrogate models, in order to enable design optimization for these configurations. The candidate will work closely with his/her experimental counterpart on this project who will perform the complementary experiments in the state of the art aeroacoustic wind tunnel at the University of Bristol.

How to apply:

Prior to submitting an online application, you will need to contact Dr. Beckett Zhou via the above ‘Apply’ button with your CV, academic transcripts and publications.
