Project Description

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship within the Rolls-Royce funded ThermoFluid Systems University Technology Centre at the University of Surrey.

The internal air system within a gas turbine engine is critical to the efficiency of modern engines. This project will concentrate on the development of tools to quantify the effect of uncertainty (for example in manufacturing tolerances) on the performance of the system. The successful candidate will have an interest in computer programming and strong mathematical skills. The project will be in collaboration with Rolls-Royce and will involve regular meetings with Rolls-Royce stakeholders.
