About the Project
These questions will be answered as part of this PhD by experimentally modelling the flow of droplets in our pipe flow facility. The Centre for Fluid and Complex systems developed a fully transparent pipe flow device of hitherto unmatched accuracy fitted with a unique optical detection device capable of mapping the motion of fluid and particles simultaneously to make the first breakthrough in this problem of fundamental importance. The question now is to understand how the motions of fluid and particles interact in detail, ultimately manipulate this interaction with electric fields and control the transition to turbulence.
This PhD offers a unique opportunity to use and develop cutting-edge experimental techniques to tackle one of the great challenges of nonlinear physics, for both fundamental and practical purposes.
Training and DevelopmentThe successful candidate will receive comprehensive research training including technical, personal and professional skills.
All researchers at Coventry University (from PhD to Professor) are part of the Doctoral College and Centre for Research Capability and Development, which provides support with high-quality training and career development activities.
