About the Project
This project aims to improve knowledge and understanding of flow through porous obstacles by producing a detailed experimental data set which will include uni-directional and oscillatory flows above and within porous media with simple regular geometry. These data will be used to identify mechanisms responsible for mass and momentum transfer between the ‘free flow’ and the ‘porous media flow’, and to establish new turbulence closure relationships suitable for simulating these phenomena. The data set will also serve as a benchmark for testing numerical simulation models of fluid-porous interactions.
Candidates should have (or expect to achieve) a UK honours degree at 2.1 or above (or equivalent) in Civil, Mechanical or Chemical Engineering; Physics.
Essential background: Fluid mechanics, Turbulence and porous media flows.
Previous laboratory experience and familiarity with MATLAB are essential. Experience in programming, data processing, and image analysis will be an advantage. Good written and spoken communication skills are essential.
