  Turbulence dynamics under breaking waves
  Dr D Van der A, Prof T O'Donoghue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The hydrodynamics and turbulence dynamics of wave breaking are important in the context of breaking wave forces on offshore and coastal structures, as well in the context of coastal sand transport in shallow water because of the impact of breaking on the near-bed turbulence and bed shear stresses, and on sediment entrainment, suspension and advection.
  PhD Position (m/f/d) in the area of Coastal Ocean Turbulence
  Dr J Carpenter
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reference code. 50012325_2 – 2020/KO 1. Commencement date. as soon as possible. The Institute of Coastal Research is investigating the influence of offshore wind farm structures on the dynamics of coastal seas.
  Finite temperature superfluid turbulence flow-structure interactions via immersed boundary methods
  Dr D Kivotides
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a multidisciplinary research project that combines the quantum physics of superfluid turbulence flows with advanced computational fluid dynamics for flow-structure interactions.
  Secondary currents in rough-bed open-channel flows and their interrelations with the primary mean flow and turbulence
  Prof V Nikora, Dr S Cameron
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although the great significance of secondary flows for river processes has long been recognised, their origin, mechanics, effects, and interrelations with the primary mean flow and turbulence are still under debate and continue attracting close attention of hydrologists, geomorphologists, engineers, and, recently, stream ecologists.
  Direct numerical simulation of polymeric-fluid flows
  Dr D Kivotides, Dr P Grassia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polymers and turbulence are two of the most difficult problems in statistical physics. In the past, the study of polymeric liquids was divided in two categories.
  PhD studentship in Hibernating turbulence in boundary-layer flows
  Dr R Whalley
Application Deadline: 10 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. October 2020 for up to 3.5 years. Overview. Hibernating turbulence is a unique form of fluid-flow intermittency which causes the skin-friction drag force experienced by an aero- of hydrodynamic body to temporarily reduce by up to 70% [1, 2].
  Very large scale motions (VLSM) in rough-bed turbulent open-channel flows: topology, statistics, dynamics
  Prof V Nikora, Dr S Cameron
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Turbulence in open-channel flows such as rivers and canals plays a key role in transport of momentum, sediments, nutrients, and other substances.
  PhD: Atmospheric monitoring for next generation cable free optical communication technologies (British Telecom)
  Research Group: CDT in Applied Photonics
  Prof D Reid, Dr M P J Lavery
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cable-free optical communication systems are vital for building the communication networks of the future. Traditionally wireless connections have been based on radio or microwave systems.
  PhD studentship in Super-miniature engineering using MEMS technologies: next generation sensors for turbulence measurements
  Dr R Whalley
Application Deadline: 10 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. October 2020 for up to 3.5 years. Overview.
  Vortex dynamics, turbulence and quantum phenomena in superfluids (PROMENTDU20SF)
  Dr D Proment
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project aims to study the fluid mechanical properties of superfluids in the presence of topological defects (vortices) and/or immersed objects (external confining potentials, impurities).
  Computational Fluid Dynamics Modelling of Tornadoes along Quasi-Linear Convective Systems
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Prof D Schultz, Dr A Revell, Dr A Skillen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UK experiences as many tornadoes as the USA as a whole. 1.2 vs 1.3 tornadoes per 10,000 km2 per year on average (Mulder and Schultz 2015).
  Fluid flows above and within porous materials
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fluid mechanics problems often involve fluid flows over porous materials. Examples of practical applications include flow through atmospheric and aquatic vegetation, coastal structures, and movement of biological fluids through various tissues.
  Stratified shear flows in inclined pipes
  Dr Y Tanino, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stably stratified shear flows are ubiquitous in the environment and industrial systems. In the atmosphere such flows are associated with clear air turbulence.
  Developing the Dielectric Barrier Discharge Surface Plasma Actuators to Improve the Aerodynamics and Aeroacoustics Performances of Aerofoil
  Dr TP Chong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the aerospace industry, great emphasis is always placed on the lifting components to achieve high-lift, low-drag and low-noise performances.
  Characterisation of flow around a bivalve (Pecten Maximus) shell
  Dr M Stewart, Prof V Nikora
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A number of studies have highlighted the ability of freshwater mussels to behave as so-called ecosystem engineers; actively modifying their local environment through mechanisms such as filtering and passively by modifying bed roughness.
