About the Project
In this PhD project you will learn to model time-dependent impacting flows, by using inviscid fluid mechanics and setting up mixed boundary-value problems. You will learn techniques for solving the equations, with exact analysis, asymptotic methods and efficient computation.
The physical interpretation of results has important consequences for abrupt changes in the velocity field within the wave water, and the distribution of maximum pressure. This is especially important when a structure moves while the wave-force is being exerted. See Cooker (2013) and Chatjigeorgiou et al. (2016). You can also explore new areas of violent wave flows near structures.
