About the Project
A major challenge in the field of fluid mechanics exists in understanding the complex nonlinear behaviour of turbulence. This problem has an enormous number of engineering and geophysical applications.
This project aims to tackle the problem of extreme, rare events in fluid turbulence by applying novel numerical and mathematical methods.
Possible approaches to the problem include; using so-called exact coherent structures, e.g. unstable periodic orbits, as proxies for this complex behaviour; using novel choices of variables to examine energy transfers across scales; and using novel numerical representations of the flow to examine extreme physical processes.
A successful candidate would have the ability to steer their project in a number of directions depending on their interests and skills.
Subject areas: Applied Mathematics, Fluid Mechanics, Turbulence
Informal enquiries about the project should be made to the Project Lead, Dr Dan Lucas (email@example.com).

Keele University is renowned for its exciting approach to higher education and research, beautiful campus, strong community spirit and excellent student life. The University has the UK’s largest campus with 617 acres of landscaped parkland, fields, woodlands and lakes. Keele University runs its own day nursery for infants from 3 months to 5 years and is committed to equality and diversity. Information for prospective postgraduate researchers can be found here: http://www.keele.ac.uk/pgresearch/
Eligibility Criteria: Applications are welcomed from mathematics, engineering or physical sciences graduates with (or anticipating) at least a 2.1 honours degree or equivalent.
Applicants are required to have good computing skills and an interest in continuum mechanics. They should be self-motivated and have the ability to work both independently and as part of a team.
The opportunities are open to UK/EU students and overseas students. The collaborative and presentation aspects of the research require very good English language and communication skills. Overseas applicants would therefore require an English IELTS (or equivalent) of 6.0 overall with no less than 5.5 in any subtest.
Keele University values diversity, and is committed to ensuring equality of opportunity. In support of these commitments, Keele University particularly welcomes applications from women and from individuals of black and ethnic minority backgrounds for this post. The School of Computing and Mathemtics and Keele University have both been awarded Athena Swan awards and Keele University is a member of the Disability Confident scheme.
