The employer is the CNRS. The project objective is to study the effects of fluid aeration during the impact of large liquid sheets on energy recovery systems. The various scales characterizing such flows are an issue for their modelling and loads' characterization on impacted structures. The coordination of two PhD within the project will enable to develop new physical and numerical models, validated by means of physical tests, before their use in more realistic configurations. Scientific approach: Aerated impact will be mainly studied using an experimental and theoretical approach in our team at LOMC, whereas the team in CORIA will use a numerical modelling approach. Experimental and numerical data will be shared during the project in order to set-up a data base on aerated impacts for multi-scale numerical modelling of realistic configurations.

PhD Curriculum | Academics | Mechanical Engineering | Northwestern Engineering
The PhD in Theoretical and Applied Mechanics TAM , in the Department of Mechanical Science and Engineering, is one of the only of its kind in the world, offering a rigorous curriculum with structured core and breadth required courses. These course requirements ensure all TAM graduate students develop a strong and broad foundation in mechanics as well as applied mathematics. The TAM PhD requires a research-based qualifying exam presentation; most students enter the program after completing a BS degree, and then earn a non-thesis MS degree after completing their required graduate courses. A student who has earned a Master of Science degree from another institution may be admitted directly to Stage 2 of the doctoral program. If any coursework is transferred, the transferred coursework cannot be used to reduce the Graduate College residency requirement of 64 hours for the doctorate. All core and breadth requirements must be satisfied before the Qualifying Examination is scheduled.

We are seeking talented, enthusiastic and motivated applicants wishing to undertake research work for a PhD in Fluid Mechanics. Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates with strong interests in fundamental or applied fluid mechanics. Opportunities are available in both experimental and theoretical aspects of fluid mechanics. Applicants should have or expect to obtain a good honours degree either first or upper class second in Engineering, Mathematics or Physics. The research interests of the group are varied.
Job summary. You will measure, analyse, model, and control the temperature in the computing laboratory using a network of sensors and controllers linked to a building management You will measure, analyse, model, and control the temperature in the computing laboratory using a network of sensors and controllers linked to a building management system. The modelling will involve carefully accounting for available energy in the context of buoyancy-driven mixing and stratified turbulence. The project is a unique opportunity to combine fundamental understanding of turbulent mixing and flow energetics with recent advances in sensor technology and automated systems for solving and optimising partial differential equations.
