Project Description

High speed flow aerodynamics rely on the fundamental understanding of compressible gas dynamics. This project involves constructing new compressible turbulence flow theory using continuum flow equations beyond the classical Navier-Stokes conventional model.

High speed flow aerodynamics in aerospace engineering relies on the fundamental understanding of compressible gas dynamics. While various turbulence models exist in incompressible flows, compressible turbulence flow problems remain one of the unresolved fluid mechanic problems. Effects of density variation play an important role in compressible turbulence. However, these effect interpretations and modelling are still not well understood.

This project involves constructing new compressible turbulence flow theory using continuum flow equations beyond the classical Navier-Stokes conventional model. It consists of a theoretical development, numerical implementations and testing.

Requirements

All applicants must have or expect to have a 1st class MChem, MPhys, MSci, MEng or equivalent degree by Autumn 2020. Selection will be based on academic excellence and research potential, and all short-listed applicants will be interviewed (in person or by Skype). Our scholarships are usually only open to UK/EU applicants who meet residency requirements set out by EPSRC.

Closing Date

All applications must be received by 28th February 2020. All successful candidates should usually expect to start in September/October 2020.
