Job Record #12819
TitleComputational Aeroelasticity for Next-generation Aircraft

LocationUnited Kingdom, Southampton
InternationalNo, only national applications will be considered
Closure DateSunday, November 01, 2015
The impact of aviation on the environment and the communities around airports is under scrutiny as never before. A substantial change in current design procedures is needed to manufacture cleaner, quieter, and safer aircraft to meet the ever increasing demand, and progress in more efficient engines is no longer sufficient.
The current industrial design process is based on linear assumptions, and this has been accepted as a means of compliance for generating gust and manoeuvre loads for aircraft design by certification authorities. Neglecting nonlinear characteristics, that may dominate the structural response and the flow development, results in conservative designs. This project targets this gap, and aims at developing a procedure to compute accurately manoeuvre and gust loads with well validated examples.
The project will provide an innovative nonlinear aeroelastic solution to lead to optimised models resulting in reduced uncertainties in the predictions which, in turn, lead to weight and cost savings. The project will include: an efficient loosely coupled aeroelastic solution process where all the CFD loads are transferred to the structural model through an advanced interpolation technique; a robust, conservative, and mesh-free procedure to deform the volume CFD mesh; and an efficient time-marching scheme to allow unsteady solutions to be performed at manageable costs.
The project capitalises from collaboration with two-leading industrial partners. The successful student is expected to visit and spend time at the partners’ sites.
If you wish to discuss any details of the project informally, please contact Dr Andrea Da Ronch, Aerodynamics and Flight Mechanics research group, Email:, Tel: +44 (0) 2380 59 4787.

InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateFriday, November 06, 2015
This PhD studentship is part of a larger EPSRC-funded project assessing the 
risks to masonry bridges from flooding. Failure of bridges, which are vital 
links in the national transport network, can lead to loss of life and 
significant damage, have severe knock-on effects on local and national 
economies, and hamper post-flood rescue and recovery efforts. The project will 
use a combination of experimental investigations and numerical modelling to 
characterize the hydrodynamic effects of debris blockage, which is one of the 
major causes of bridge failure during floods, and implement findings within 
guidance for practitioners.

You will lead the work-package on numerical modelling within the project. You 
will be responsible for creating the CFD models required to simulate flow under 
masonry bridges and around bridge piers with floating debris blockage, 
particularly investigating the hydrodynamic effects of scour and pressure forces 
on bridges. You will develop novel approaches to modelling scour using advanced 
techniques such as dynamic meshing and modern turbulence models and LES, and 
compare results with in-house experimental data to validate the results. You 
will be part of a multidisciplinary research team that is composed of leading 
researchers from Exeter, Heriot-Watt and Belgrade, and will be assisted by an 
industry-led steering committee including consultants, asset owners and 
stakeholder groups involved in bridge management in the UK.

Applicant criteria: applicants should have or expect to achieve at least a 2:1 
Honours degree, or equivalent, in Mechanical or Civil Engineering, Physics or 
Mathematics. Applicants will need a good understanding of fluid dynamics and 
mathematical modelling; experience of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and the 
OpenFOAM code would be beneficial; understanding of bridge scour or sediment 
transport techniques would also be beneficial.
