About the Project

This study will investigate theoretical and numerical methods to predict dynamics and instability of boundary-layer flows over bodies with large scales. The boundary layer may be exposed to disturbances in the free stream and also to surface roughness. The approach will be an effective blend of numerical and mathematical techniques.


1st degree in Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering Applied Mathematics, Physics or other Relevant Discipline.
