Functieomschrijving

Are you fascinated by physics and interested in developing state-of-the-art fluid dynamics computer simulations to understand real-world problems better? Are you ambitious and dynamic? Do you strive for excellence? We are looking for a PhD student to carry out state-of-the-art research on the simulations of chiral particles in turbulence! Chiral particles couple rotational and translational degrees of freedom. The project aims to develop analytical and computationally accurate and efficient models to simulate the dynamics of chiral particles in turbulence. This will be achieved by performing high-resolution simulations using a finite difference code with an immersed boundary method. These simulations will fully resolve the particle dynamics, which will allow us to develop analytical models and computationally efficient “point-wise” numerical models. Numerical simulations of a high volume fraction of particles will be pursued. In this project, we will consider unexplored terrain and design non-universal turbulence using “smart” particles capable of adjusting the properties of turbulent flows at its core!

Functie-eisen

You have a background in applied physics or mechanical engineering or a closely related discipline. You have strong communication skills, including fluency in written and spoken English. You are enthusiastic and highly motivated to do a PhD. Programming experience in C or Fortran is a plus.
