Enrico Calzavarini (enrico.calzavarini@polytech-lille.fr)
Silvia Hirata (silvia.hirata@univ-lille1.fr)

Starting date: October 2014

Context, Objectives and Methodology

The extent of sea ice during summer in the Arctic Ocean is among the most sensitive indicators of the 
ongoing climate change. 

During the last summers satellites have recorded an exceptional reduction of the Arctic sea-ice pack to an 
extent that none of the available large-scale numerical Global Climate models could predict. The observed 
ice loss has lead scietists to question their quantitative understanding of the dynamical and 
thermodynamical processes involved in the summer season melting and with it to reconsider several of the 
simplifying assumptions on which the current large-scale computer models are based.
Features related to water ponds forming over melted ice are too small to be directly accounted for in large-
scale models. How does the heat transfer occur in the ponds and how does that affect the large-scale sea 
ice mass balance? How does the melt progress on the bottom and on the lateral walls of the ponds? How 
does the topography of the ponds, their surface and depth, evolve in the course of the summer season? All 
the above questions have been overlooked in the present models. Melt ponds and their surface topography 
are an important contributor to the surface albedo of the Arctic Ocean, which is a key factor for the global 
climate. Presently, the main challenge in sea ice climate science is to physically improve the models in 
order to refine their predictive power.
This research project addresses the problem of the growth process of ice melt ponds in the Arctic during 
the summer season by focusing on the small-scale (~ few meters) mechanisms controlling the evolution of 
the basin topography of a single melt pond. In particular we study the phenomenology of the thermal 
convective flow in the pond, which is known to be highly turbulent, and its interaction with the phase-
change mechanisms at the pond boundaries. 
The goal of the present project is to reach a sound understanding on how fluid dynamics and phase-
change processes contribute in determing the pond growth in order to provide useful guidelines for 
parametrizations in large-scale models.

The proposed research is based on numerical simulations. A computational-fluid dynamics code is to be 
developed (using the Lattice-Boltzmann Method), in order to describe both the turbulent convective 
dynamics of melted water, with its inherent salt content, and the ice phase change under realistic 
conditions.

We shall then extend the small-scale simulation results to the medium and large scales. Our objective is to 
derive simplified parameterizations suitable for the implementation in large-scale ice-ocean models used 
for Earth System modelling.

Research group and funding

The project will be carried out in the Laboratoire de Mécanique de Lille (LML - Université Lille 1), with the 
supervision of Prof. Enrico Calzavarini (http://lmlm6-62.univ-lille1.fr/lml/ perso/calzavarini/) and Prof. 
Silvia Hirata (http://lmlm6-62.univ-lille1.fr/lml/perso/hirata). The research group have a long and 
significant experience in computational fluid dynamics, turbulent mixing, convective flows, and transport 
phenomena through fluid and porous media. 
The project will be carried out in close collaboration with Dr. Martin Vancoppenolle (CNRS), based at 
LOCEAN laboratory , Université Paris 6. Dr. Vancopenolle is a geophysicist specialized in the modelling and 
development of large-scale sea ice models (https://www.locean-ipsl.upmc.fr/~mvlod). !
The thesis falls within the framework of the SEAS project, funded by the ANR (Agence Nationale de la 
Recherche), the French National Research Agency. 

The selected applicant will be part of the Doctoral School of Lille University! (http://edspi.univ-lille1.fr)

► Clean Combustion of Hydrogen-Rich Alternative Fuels, University of Southampton, Faculty of Engineering
   20 Aug, 2014 
Job Record #12027
TitleClean Combustion of Hydrogen-Rich Alternative Fuels
CategoryPhD Studentship
EmployerUniversity of Southampton, Faculty of Engineering
LocationUnited Kingdom, Southampton
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateTuesday, September 30, 2014
Description:
To have a realistic chance of reducing the carbon footprint before 2020, 
intensive actions are required before the date by which a new international 
climate agreement is due to come into force. Combustion is at the heart of this 
challenge: fossil fuel combustion accounts for around two-thirds of greenhouse-
gas emissions, as more than 80% of global energy consumption is based on fossil 
fuels. Worldwide, fossil fuels add more than twenty five billion tons of carbon 
dioxide to the atmosphere every year, along with vast quantities of other 
pollutants. This places enormous pressure to improve the combustion efficiency 
with low emissions in transportation and power generation devices while 
simultaneously developing more diverse fuel streams, including low carbon fuels.
 
In moving towards cleaner combustion technologies, hydrogen-rich alternative 
fuel blends, especially those containing significant quantities of hydrogen are 
undoubtedly significant, because they are environmentally friendly and can be 
used as an alternative feedstock for energy resources in the clean energy 
generation.
 
The research project aims to develop new computational experiments to 
fundamentally understand the burning issues of hydrogen-rich alternative fuel 
blends at high pressure conditions. This project will demonstrate how the new 
predictive engineering models can be used to utilise hydrogen-rich fuels, 
highlighting the effects of high pressure on clean fuel burning, overall 
performance, emission distributions and finally provide an optimised industrial 
guidelines to design combustor performance for hydrogen-rich clean fuel burning 
at high pressure.
 
Applications are invited from candidates with a first class degree in 
Mechanical Engineering/Aerospace Engineering/Chemical Engineering. UK citizens 
are eligible, including EU citizens who have been resident in the UK 
for the 3 years preceding the date of application.  

The fully funded PhD studentship is for four years starting on 1st October and 
will cover tuition fees and a tax-free maintenance grant of £13,726 per year.

The University of Southampton is one of the top 15 research universities in the 
UK and has achieved consistently high scores for its teaching and learning 
activities. The University of Southampton is ranked joint 9th among Russell 
Group universities in terms of the 2008 RAE.

TitlePhD in aerodynamics: UK and French nationals
CategoryPhD Studentship
EmployerCranfield University
LocationUnited Kingdom, Bedfordshire, Cranfield
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure Date* None *
Description:
The integration of a propulsion system with an airframe is a vital step in the 
development of any air vehicle. One area of interest is for propulsion systems 
which are either embedded or partially embedded into the airframe. For such 
configurations the use of complex intakes and duct systems can give rise to a 
highly distorted and dynamic flow field at the entry to the engine. This can 
have a first order effect on the design and operability of the engine.   

The research will focus on the aerodynamics associated with such complex engine 
intake ducts and will  comprise both experimental and computational studies. The 
overall aim will be to develop a more advanced understanding of the distorted 
flow field, flow control and the flow distortion descriptors. The work will be 
conducted at both Cranfield (2 years) and ONERA Paris (1 year).


Entry requirements
Applicants for the post must have a first-class or upper second-class degree in 
engineering or a related area. An aerospace background would be a distinct 
advantage as would experience of experimental aerodynamics, Particle Image 
Velocimetry and computational aerodynamics. Studentships will be paid a tax-free 
stipend of at approximately £14,000 p.a. for 3 years, plus tuition fees at the 
UK/EU rate. The applicant must be either a UK or French National.
