Friction drag has a significant contribution into total friction of some
vehicles (e.g. ships, aeroplanes and automobiles). For instance, it contributes
about 80% to total friction on ships; it is estimated that by only 10% reduction
of the total friction, approximately 4 billion GBP/year saving in ship industry
could be gained. Patterned surfaces have capability to reduce the friction drag.
On the other hand, it has recently been established that unsteady flows may have
potential to be considered for reducing the friction drag. Unsteady flows, in
which the bulk velocity of wall-bounded flows or the free-stream velocity of
boundary layer flows vary with time, are of general interest because they are
encountered in many engineering applications and natural systems. Significant
researches have been directed on these flows over many years, and in particular,
recently on the turbulent-turbulent transient flow by our group. 

The PhD project will focus on detailed flow structure over patterned surfaces in
steady and unsteady flows, aiming at minimising the mean friction drag. The
research will also investigate further our recent finding that the nature of
turbulence response of a rough-wall transient channel flow starting from a
steady turbulent flow resembles the boundary layer roughness-induced
laminar-turbulent transition.

The numerical approach will be carried out for the project, with accompanying
some experiments. The numerical part will be performed using our in-house DNS
(Direct Numerical Simulation) and LES (Large Eddy Simulation) computer codes.
DNS is state-of-the-art approach in CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) to study
detailed flow behaviour with no turbulence models, hence potentially provides
the highest accuracy. The DNS code is already parallelised using MPI (Message
Passing Interface) by our group and has been used successfully on several
projects. The code will however be adopted and optimised on the PhD project. The
experiments will be conducted using advanced non-intrusive measurement
techniques LDV (Laser Doppler Velocimetry) and PIV (Particle Image Velocimetry).

Candidate. The successful candidate should have, or expect to have an excellent
first degree with strong background in engineering, applied mathematics or physics.

Funding Notes. The studentship is for full-time study based in Liverpool John
Moores University and will start as soon as a suitable candidate is found. The
studentship provides full tuition fees and a tax-free maintenance allowance of
£14057 per annum for 3 years. Applications are welcome from UK and overseas

In vielen technischen Systemen ist ein chemischer Stoffumsatz an Partikeln in
turbulenten Strömungen von Bedeutung. Beispiele sind technische Brenner in
Kraftwerken und Reaktoren in der chemischen Verfahrenstechnikm, aber auch die
meisten Antriebssysteme wie Kolbenmotoren, Gasturbinen (Ruß). Zur Optimierung
solcher Systeme kommen in den letzten Jahren verstärkt Strömungs-
simulationsverfahren (CFD) zum Einsatz. Da die Strömungs- und chemischen
Vorgänge am Einzelpartikel numerisch in einer CFD-Simulation der
Gesamtkonfiguration nicht aufgelöst werden können, müssen sie modelliert werden.
Besonders anspruchsvoll ist die Modellierung der stark nichtlinearen Turbulenz-
Chemie Wechselwirkungen.

Am Institut für Thermodynamik der Universität der Bundeswehr München LRT-10
werden grundlagenorientierte Forschungsarbeiten im Bereich der numerischen
Modellierung und experimentellen Untersuchung turbulenter Verbrennung,
Wärmeübergang, Aerothermodynamik sowie anwendungsorientierte Arbeiten zur
Unterstützung der Entwicklung u.a. von Strahltriebwerken, Raketenmotoren,
Fahrzeugmotoren, Stationär-Kolbenmotoren und -gasturbinen sowie technischen
Brennern durchgeführt.

Sie finden am Institut anspruchsvolle und kreative Aufgaben und eine
hervorragende Betreuung in einem hoch motivierten Doktorandenteam.
Promotionsmöglichkeit ist für alle Stellen gegeben. Weibliche Bewerber und
ausländische Studenten / Stipendiaten mit guten Deutschkenntnissen sind herzlich
willkommen. Die Promotionsthemen können auf Ihre speziellen Interessen /
Fähigkeiten abgestimmt werden. Nehmen Sie Kontakt mit uns auf!

Sie modellieren und simulieren die Partikel-Verbrennungsvorgänge mittels
moderner Strömungssimulationsverfahren (CFD) und validieren diese Modelle mit
Hilfe von Messdaten aus der Literatur sowie aus Vorarbeiten am Institut. Hierbei
soll vor allem der quelloffene Code OpenFOAM zum Einsatz kommen, punktuell
können aber auch vorhandene kommerzielle CFD-Verfahren wie ANSYS FLUENT, CFX,
NUMECA, STAR CCM+ oder COMSOL genutzt werden. Der Schwerpunkt Ihrer Arbeit ist
die (Weiter-) Entwicklung von Modellen, welche den Partikeltransport und den
Partikelabbrand in turbulenten Flammen beschreiben. Aufgrund der komplexen
Wechselwirkung zwischen den chemischen Reaktionen in der turbulenten Gasströmung
sowie der Chemie der Feststoffpartikel ergeben sich interessante Phänomene, die
noch nicht ausreichend verstanden sind. Anwendung finden die Modelle z.B. bei
Raketenantrieben (Metallpartikelverbrennung), in der
Verfahrenstechnik (Partikel-Beschichtungen) sowie in der Simulation von Kohle-
staub- und Rußverbrennung. In Vorarbeiten am Institut wurden Prüfstände für die
experimentelle Untersuchung der Partikelverbrennung entwickelt. Bei Eignung und
Interesse ist es möglich, einen Teil der Arbeit experimentell an diesen
Prüfständen durchzuführen.

Das Projekt ist der Grundlagenforschung zuzurechnen und wird an der Universität
der Bundeswehr München in enger Zusammenarbeit mit ihrem An-Institut ITIS -
Institut für Technik Intelligenter Systeme e.V. durchgeführt. Das Vorhaben
stärkt die Aktivitäten des UniBwM-Forschungszentrums MIRA (Luft- und

Sie sollten einen mindestens guten Universitätsabschluss als Dipl.-Ing. oder

Kenntnisse in Thermofluiddynamik und Mathematik sind erforderlich, Erfahrungen
in den Bereichen Verbrennung, der Entwicklung und Anwendung von numerischen

Development of a microstructure based discrete element snow model for
engineering applications

The University of Luxemburg within its multi-disciplinary and –cultural
environment offers a PhD-position in mechanical engineering in close cooperation
with WSL Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research in Switzerland that conducts
experimental work. In this project a discrete particle snow model for high
strain rate deformations is developed. Such a model has several advantages to
the traditional continuum snow models. First, a discrete model can directly
include microstructural information. Second, it includes a priori contacts and
bonding between the particles. Third, it can explicitly account for the large
displacements and rearrangement of the ice grains during deformation that is the
transformation of the continuous network of bonded ice grains into a granular
medium. Hence, a discrete particle model explicitly includes all the relevant
physical micro-scale processes. Work is to be started and continued from an
already available XDEM software-platform.

The successful candidate is expected:
•	To carry out predictions using the Discrete Element Method
•	To derive model approaches for the formation and destruction of bonds between
ice grains
•	To post-process predicted results in conjunction with a physically-based analysis
•	To validate model approaches
•	To compare experimental measurements and predictions to extract relevant features
•	To document results and findings in English

Candidates should have a Master/Diploma degree in Mechanical Engineering,
Physics, Mathematics or equivalent to pursue a PhD-study. This should ideally be
complemented by the following skills:
•	Knowledge of the Discrete Element Method
•	Mathematics and numerical methods
•	Object-oriented programming in particular C++
•	One of the working languages: English, German or French
•	Willingness to work in an inter-cultural environment

•	The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, the heart of Europe, a multilingual country,
and headquarters of many European institutions and businesses, offers a
particularly interesting setting. 
•	The University of Luxembourg offers students the opportunity to pursue
doctoral studies under the supervision of academic staff or in cooperation with
other host institutions.
•	Fixed-term contract 3 years, full-time (40 hrs/week) with a possible extension
to a 4th year.
•	Employee status

The University of Luxembourg is an equal opportunity employer.

Additional information: 
Applications (in English) should contain the following documents:
•	A detailed curriculum vitae
•	Cover letter mentioning the reference number
•	Certificates
•	List of publications and research projects
