This project is across the distinct disciplines of mathematical and computational fluid mechanics and aims to provide insight into open problems in fundamental fluid physics. The successful candidate will join a newly-established international team based in the UK and Australia and will involve an extended research visit to Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia. The project will, by its grand scope, produce solutions with far reaching applications to a wide range of unsteady fluid flow problems, such as those that occur, for example, in controlling the onset of drag over aircraft, the dynamic stall of aircraft, or within internal arterial flows. With regards aerospace, it will contribute to the introduction of the next generation of innovative and disruptive technologies via its interaction with research in how to control flow to reduce aerodynamic drag towards achieving environmental pollution targets. Furthermore, this has a subsequent impact on how we manage our natural resources efficiently and sustainably.
EPSRC PhD Studentship -Benefits
This research project is one of a number of projects in the College. It is in competition for funding with one or more
of these projects. Usually the project which receives the best applicant will be awarded the funding.
