    Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

Project Description

Sponsored by Pietro Fiorentini, one of the main players in the market of Multi Phase Flow Meters, this studentship will provide a bursary up to £16,000 p.a. (tax free) plus fees* for one year.

The successful candidate will be active part of a challenging, cutting edge R&D project aiming at improving the measurement performance of the current wet gas flow meter. The candidate will numerically investigate multiphase phenomena in wet gas flow meter, identifying firstly the location where wet gas flow meter sensors will perform best, and secondly optimising the design of the current wet gas flow meter.

This Multiphase CFD-based project will require an understanding of multiphase & wet gas phenomena, flow regimes, and strong numerical and programming skills, along with expertise in design and meshing techniques to be applied for multiphase flows. Results will be compared to experimental data generated by Pietro Fiorentini, the sponsoring company.

The successful candidate will benefit from significant academic and industrial exposure with technical meetings and Pietro-Fiorentini’s regular engagement. He/She will have the opportunity to present his/her progress in front of experts in the field.
