Aerodynamics and Aeroacoustics of Novel Propellers

Project Description

There is an opening for a PhD student to work on aerodynamic and aeroacoustic performance of novel propellers. As part of this project, you will carry out aerodynamic and aeroacoustic measurements using novel technique to better understand the performance of modern propellers in the context of “Future Flight” configurations. As part of this project, you will join a team of experts, across the EU, to design, build and test various configurations. Joining the aeroacoustics team at the University of Bristol you will be able to use our state-of-the-art large aeroacoustic wind tunnel facility and work with world-leading academics and industries in the field. The results of this research are expected to be published in field’s top journals. You will also have the opportunity to attend several international conferences during your PhD.

You will become a part of a large group of highly motivated researchers, with a research focus of aerodynamics and aeroacoustics and development of new measurement tools. University of Bristol is home to the UK’s National Aeroacoustic Facility and by joining the team you will have access to our experimental facilities, workshops and technical specialists. The aeroacoustics team at the University of Bristol is involved in over ten large projects and as a new PhD student, you will have the opportunity to interact with other team members and learn more about other projects.

Candidate Requirements

We are looking for an enthusiastic student who must hold/achieve a minimum of a master’s degree (or international equivalent) in a science, mathematics or engineering discipline.
The candidate will have a strong understanding of aerodynamics, analytical and practical skills combined with excellent communication skills.
