Project Description

Applications are invited for a research studentship in the field of numerical modelling of electromagnetic interactions in nanofuel combustion, leading to the award of a PhD degree.

The main objective of the project is to understand the effect of electromagnetic fields in nanofuel evaporation and combustion to enable novel technologies for the control of flame stability and pollutants in low-emission engines. This will require the development and validation of advanced models to include electromagnetic effects in high fidelity simulations. The developed models will be used to study multi-physics interactions involving electromagnetic fields and nanofuels in a turbulent reacting environment and analyse to which extent electromagnetic fields could allow the control of fuel placement and combustion depending on the nature of nano additives.

You will be an enthusiastic and self-motivated person who meets the academic requirements for enrolment for the PhD degree at Imperial College London. You will have a 1st class honours degree in Mechanical Engineering, Physics, Computing or related subjects, and an enquiring and rigorous approach to research together with a strong intellect and disciplined work habits. A keen interest in theory and numerical modelling of fluids, combustion and multi-physics phenomena as well as application of computational methods to engineering problems is essential. Curiosity, good ability to conduct independent study, good team-working, flexibility, observational and communication skills are essential for this project.
