aerodynamics PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 34 aerodynamics PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Experimental Aerodynamics and Environmental Flows

Supervisory Team.   Dr Christina Vanderwel. Project description. Join our world-leading experimental fluid mechanics research group with this PhD studentship studying Experimental Aerodynamics and Environmental Flows. Read more

An experimental 3D volumetric study of train aerodynamics

The aerodynamic slipstream created as a high-speed passenger train moves through the air is highly turbulent in nature. In particular the wake region is known to contain a series of helical vortices, which spread laterally into the far wake region, potentially affecting the stability of trackside workers. Read more

Computational aerodynamics of high speed flow over rough surfaces

Supervisory Team.   Neil Sandham. Project description. You will join a group of PhD students and post-doctoral researchers using high performance computing to advance understanding of high speed aerodynamics. Read more

Transition to turbulence in hypersonic flow applications

Supervisory Team.   Neil Sandham. Project description. You will join a group of PhD students and post-doctoral researchers using high performance computing to advance understanding of high speed aerodynamics. Read more

CFD Study of Wind Turbine Aerodynamics

Wind turbine is the main technology that converts wind energy to electricity. The interaction between air flow and the turbine blade are critical to the structure integrity and noise generation of the turbine. Read more

Novel Methods for the Characterisation of Helicopter Aero-acoustics PhD

Cranfield University has been at the forefront of rotorcraft research for the last 13 years, having an established track record on rotorcraft modelling, performance, aero-mechanics, and aero-acoustics. Read more

Flow distortion measurements using event-based vision cameras PhD

This is a full funded* PhD in propulsion system aerodynamics in collaboration with Rolls-Royce and EPSRC. The overall aim is to exploit the capabilities of event based cameras for stereo PIV measurements and to characterise the dynamic flow distortion within confined internal domains such as convoluted intakes. Read more

Resilient Biomimetic Flight in Cluttered Environments

Unlike rotary-wing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), fixed-wing UAVs offer several advantages, including longer endurance, greater range, higher speed, larger payload capacity, improved stability in wind, energy efficiency, and reduced noise. Read more

Go On, Disturb the Flow

Supervisory Team. Dr. Swathi Krishna, Prof. Bharath Ganapathisubramani. Project description. If you are a student of aerodynamics, chances are that you have drawn a conventional airfoil with nice, laminar incoming flow at some point. Read more

Artificial Evolution with Miniature Robots

​​Evolutionary robotics is a vibrant new sub-discipline of robotics which looks to adapt the processes which shape life on earth to the development of novel engineering systems. Read more

Structural health monitoring of wind turbines exposed to atmospheric turbulence

​​Climate change and net-zero policies across the globe are urgently promoting the need for renewable energies [1]. In the UK alone, for every extra GWh of energy produced by wind, we can prevent the emission of 450 tonnes of carbon yearly [2]. Read more

High-fidelity CFD and data-driven modelling of aerodynamic noise sources

Applications are invited for one funded 3.5-year PhD studentship for the project titled “High-fidelity CFD and data-driven modeling of aerodynamic noise sources” in the group of Dr Zhong-Nan Wang at the University of Birmingham. Read more
