Full Project Detail

This PhD project aims to drive forward the development of future two-phase evaporative cooling technologies for energy systems with potential impact in the automotive sector and power generation sector. This is an opportunity for world-class research training at Loughborough University, including opportunities to explore state-of-art optical diagnostic facilities and attend international conferences. The successful applicant will be expected to be an integral part of an industry collaborative research team.

The research will include:

1. Experimental investigation of the fundamental heat and mass transfer process during both pool-boiling and flow-boiling by developing and implementation of a high-speed optical diagnostic system.

2. Develop robust and accurate models to predict the heat flux and surface temperature distributions during both pool boiling and flow boiling

3. Quantify the accuracy of the models in engine systems.

Entry requirements

The candidates must be expecting or have already obtained a first degree (1st class or high 2:1 honour or equivalent) in mechanical engineering, physics or other relevant subjects. Good communication skills are essential. A relevant Master’s degree or research experience in the experimental/analytical multiphase thermofluids system will be an advantage.
