Numerical simulation of fluid-structure interaction problems

  Research Group: School of Computing
This project aims to develop and implement parallel fluid-structure interaction algorithms including interfaced-fitted methods [1] and two-mesh methods [2], based upon FreeFem++ and PETSc, with application to modelling and simulation of aortic valve interacting with surrounding fluids and tissues; and large-scale simulation of biological swimmers (such as C.

Funded PhD Studentship on Robust and Efficient Machine Learning Algorithms

Overview. I am looking for a PhD student with an interest in the design of efficient and robust machine learning and data processing algorithms using tools from applied probability, signal processing and statistical mechanics. Read more

Computational Mechanics

Warwick Monash Alliance. Supervisors: Dr Emmanouil Kakouris (School of Engineering, University of Warwick, United Kingdom). and Dr Vinh Phu Nguyen (Department of Civil Engineering, Monash University, Australia). Read more

Brain tissue mechanics: constitutive modeling of degeneration and dynamics

The aim of this project is to evaluate the mechanics of grey and white matter found in the brain during health & disease and effective methods by which to model disease mechanics and progression. Read more

PhD opportunities in Mathematics at Brunel University London

Are you ready to address problems of real biological or engineering importance? Or perhaps investigate the underlying mathematical and phenomenological processes of societal issues?. Read more

White Rose BBSRC DTP: Unraveling the mechanics of lateral gene transfer between grasses

The three main fundamental biological questions are. [1] How is this foreign DNA inserted into the genome of the recipient? Are the genes randomly inserted into the genome, or are there specific target sites that might hint at the mechanisms behind the transfers. Read more

Enhancing the performance, condition, safety and reliability of offshore wind energy infrastructure systems using optimal inspections and structural health monitoring

Wind turbines are exposed to frequent structural damage increasing the cost of wind energy generation. To drive these costs down, this project will develop new automated methods for detection of structural damage to wind turbines by examining vibration responses measured by sensors attached to the structure.

Mathematical modelling of cavitation development for October 2023 entry

Background to the Project. Cavitation generation has been much of a mystery for more than a century. A core unresolved challenge is how bubble growth subject to acoustic forcing occurs over millions of cycles of oscillation, which cannot be simulated by any CFD packages. Read more

Droplet Impacts with Functional Surfaces

Droplet interactions with functional surfaces play a crucial role in many important physical processes, from preventing virus laden droplets passing through face masks to reducing the build-up of ice on the surfaces of flying aircraft. Read more

Computational Mechanics of Fracture on Advanced Composite Aerospace Structures

Over the last decade there has been a significant increase in the use of composite laminates in the aerospace industry in a drive to reduce weight and as a result to reduce emissions. Read more

Fundamental Electromagnetics: Foundational Theories of Electricity and Magnetism relating to Charged Particle Interactions

Applications are invited for a self-funded PhD. Charged particle dynamics (also known as charged particle optics) is concerned with the interactions of charged particles (e.g., electrons, protons, ions) within an electric and/or magnetic field. Read more
