Applications are invited for a research studentship in the field of Thermofluids with focus on fundamental understanding of in-cylinder mixture formation and combustion for high-efficiency gasoline engines using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) leading to the award of a PhD degree.
Fluid motion is vital to the function of healthy plants. For example, transpiration causes water to be drawn upwards from root to leaf through the conducting elements of the xylem, and pressure-driven flow carries the products of photosynthesis through the phloem.
This PhD project addresses the kinematic and thermal behaviour of sprays of liquids into gases, with a particular focus on the dynamics of the type of pressurisers used to control the operating pressure in pressurised water nuclear power stations.
