About the Project
The detailed hydrodynamics will be measured using high-resolution laser Doppler anemometry (LDA) and particle image velocimetry (PIV), and measurements will be compared with predictions from a Computational Fluid Dynamics model that captures the detailed flow, including turbulence.
Candidates should have (or expect to achieve) a UK honours degree at 2.1 or above (or equivalent) in Civil/Mechanical Engineering; 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.
• Apply for Degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Engineering
• State name of the lead supervisor as the Name of Proposed Supervisor
• State ‘Self-funded’ as Intended Source of Funding
• State the exact project title on the application form
When applying please ensure all required documents are attached:
• All degree certificates and transcripts (Undergraduate AND Postgraduate MSc-officially translated into English where necessary)
• Detailed CV
Informal inquiries can be made to Dr D van der A ([email protected]), with a copy of your curriculum vitae and cover letter. All general enquiries should be directed to the Postgraduate Research School ([email protected])
