  PhD Studentship: 4-year PhD studentship: Multi-physics Simulation in the Automotive Industry
  Dr G Mavros, Dr J Knowles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014) and an outstanding 66% of the work of Loughborough’s academic staff who were eligible to be submitted to the REF was judged as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’, compared to a national average figure of 43%.
  PhD Case studentship in Advanced Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis of Chemical Biological Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) Canisters in new generation respirators
  Prof N Chakraborty, Dr A Aspden
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. January 2020 for .3.5 years. Overview. The project will utilise advancements of high-performance computing to carry out unsteady Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes (uRANS) and Large Eddy Simulations (LES) of airflow through CBRN filters in breath responsive respirators.
  Computational Studies on Tip Clearance Influence Regarding Flow and Heat Transfer Characteristics of Modern Aero Turbines (DTA)
  Research Group: Polymers and Composites
  Dr C Abeykoon, Prof A Turan
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This study addresses the study of the flow and heat transfer at the tip clearance region in aero turbines. Fluid dynamics at this region tends to be extremely complex.
  Multi-disciplinary Modelling of the Aerothemodynamically-induced Fragmentation of Re-entering bodies
  Dr M Fossati
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The prediction of atmospheric re-entry is impacted by the fragmentation of the re-entering objects as a result of severe aerothermal loads.
  Refining our Understanding of Small-scale Turbulence Dynamics
  Prof c keylock
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Improved modelling methods for fluid flows require a better understanding of how turbulent, Newtonian fluids such as water or air dissipate energy.
  Cellular Automaton to Model Rapid Crystal Growth and Recrystallisation
  Dr A Roy, Dr K Baxevanakis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Texture in materials plays a crucial role in metallic products. A thorough study of the underlying morphology and its evolution is relevant for producing cast parts of innovative technological products.
  CFD of Flow and Temperature Control Using Porous Materials
  Dr Y Mahmoudi Larimi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of porous materials (i.e. solid medium permeated by a network of pores), in particular, for passive control of flow and thermal purposes has received considerable academic and industrial attention over the past five decades.
  (BBSRC DTP) Flying underwater: multidisciplinary approaches to understanding the swimming dynamics of penguins
  Dr B Parslew, Dr K Smith, Prof W Sellers
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Penguins are highly adapted for both efficient cruising and rapid manoeuvring during underwater locomotion. From a biomechanical perspective some progress has been made into understanding the fluid dynamics surrounding their morphology, including the potential role of bubbles in reducing drag.
  Joint PhD with RWTH Aachen: Use of machine learning to optimise turbulence modelling
  Prof R Sandberg
Application Deadline: 20 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Industry relies heavily on turbulence models to make numerical predictions sufficiently affordable. However, in many situations the lack of predictive accuracy of the underlying models limits the impact that computational methods can have on technology development.
  Research Studentship in Thermofluids of Composite Material Seals for jet engines.
  Prof P Ireland
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Studentship in Thermofluids of Composite Material Seals for jet engines. 4-year D.Phil. studentship. EPSRC Industrial CASE Studentship with Rolls-Royce.
