About the Project
The PhD project will study the detailed hydrodynamic processes of wave induced flows over vegetation-covered beds in the 20-m long random wave flume at the University of Aberdeen. The experiments will involve a range of wave conditions and different varieties of artificial vegetation to systematically study the hydrodynamic processes within and above the vegetation canopy. The measurements will include detailed water particle velocity measurements using the laboratory’s PIV (Particle Image Velocimetry) and LDA (Laser Doppler Anemometry) systems. Data from the experiments will be used to test and validate numerical models for the propagation of waves over vegetated seabeds in the coastal zone.
Candidates should have (or expect to achieve) a UK honours degree at 2.1 or above (or equivalent) in engineering or related discipline that includes fluid mechanics will provide the essential knowledge.
Essential background: civil or mechanical engineering or other relevant physical science.
Prior knowledge of the following would be beneficial but is not essential: sea wave mechanics; environmental fluids mechanics, laboratory measurements in fluid mechanics.
