PhD scholarship in Computational Fluid Dynamics at the University of Louvain in Belgium

A PhD scholarship in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is available at the University of Louvain (UCL) in Belgium. The research topic concerns the study of multiphase flows of solid particles-fluid mixtures and, more specifically, the modelling and simulation of granular suspensions. These mixtures are encountered in numerous natural phenomena and technological applications such as sediment transport, storage and transport of powders granular metrials in process industries, and drug delivery. Granular suspensions belong to the class of complex fluids and present an extremely rich and unexpected phenomenology. Currently, many questions regarding the dynamics of granular suspensions remain open.

The proposed doctoral research project consists of:

i) derivation of models for particle migration and for the rheology of granular suspensions, including suspended sediments.

ii) development of numerical algorithms for the numerical simulation of flows of practical interest

that involve granular suspensions.

iii) simulations in parallel computers and validation of the numerical results with experimental data.

Desired qualifications and experience:

- a Masters degree in a relevant engineering discipline, physics or mathematics, preferably with a background in fluid mechanics and numerical methods for scientific computing,

- good programming skills in C/C++ and/or FORTRAN,

- ability to efficiently communicate, read and write in English.

- good knowledge of French.

The expected starting date is January 2019. The PhD student will work as a member of the multi-phase and reacting flows group at the University of Louvain. Information about our group's activities is available on our website https://sites.google.com/site/mvpapalexandris/ .

The scholarship includes the researcher's salary, full insurance and health benefits, and coverage of expenses for participation in conferences & workshops.

Interested applicants are invited to submit a detailed CV, transcripts of academic records, a statement of research interests and names of 2 references to Prof. M. Papalexandris, miltiadis.papalexandris@uclouvain.be . Incomplete applications will not be taken into account.
