► Ph.D. Studentship in Coupled DNS/DEM modelling, Monash University, Dept Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
   28 Sep, 2016 
Job Record #13799
TitlePh.D. Studentship in Coupled DNS/DEM modelling
CategoryPhD Studentship
EmployerMonash University, Dept Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
LocationAustralia, Victoria, Melbourne
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateFriday, October 14, 2016

We seek a highly motivated and quantitatively talented candidate to pursue a PhD
project on numerical simulation of three dimensional (3D) turbulent flow that
occurs in particle-laden liquids.  The project centers on the coupling and use
of two sophisticated computational techniques – Direct Numerical Simulation
(DNS) used to model the details of unsteady turbulent flow, and the Discrete
Element Method (DEM) that captures the details of individual particle-particle
The project will be split approximately 50:50 between
1.	Developing a coupling methodology between DNS and DEM and implementing it
within the framework of existing computational software (with meaningful
assistance from others), and
2.	Use of the code in validation against experimental data for flow of coarse
solid suspensions in a pipe flow, up to concentrations that lead to pipe
blockage and system failure.

The progress to be made in this project will be at the forefront of research in
this area.  Thus we seek a student with the following (demonstrable) skills and
•	A sound mathematical background with exposure to ODE’s, PDE’s and (especially)
numerical mathematics.
•	Some understanding of, and experience in developing, numerical methods for
solving equations (and a desire to learn more)
•	An understanding of fluid flow and continuum mechanics.
•	Experience in programming, preferably in a high level language (C, C++ or
Fortran) is highly desirable.  As a fall back position, high level ability in
MATLAB (or equivalent) is essential. 
•	For candidates applying from countries where English is not the single
official language, proof of English proficiency is essential.

This project is aligned with the ARC Industry Transformational Research Hub for
Computational Particle Technology at Monash University, and involves 5
Australian and 5 International Universities and a number of multinational
companies.  It will be part of a much broader research engagement and the
student will undertake research in a supportive environment.

Interested candidates who clearly satisfy the above selection criteria at a high
level should first contact Prof. Murray Rudman on for
detail of the application procedure.  Candidates that satisfy the selection
criteria above at only a moderate level, or satisfy only some of the conditions
are encouraged not to apply, as the scholarship selection process is very rigorous.

Call open for applications to a research Grant (Bolsa de Investigação,  BI-Mestre) for candidates holding a 
Master’s degree within the framework of project PTDC/EMS-ENE/2390/2014, POCI-01-0145-FEDER-
016669 – financed by the European Regional Development Fund (FEDER), through COMPETE2020 – 
Operational Programme for Competitiveness and Internationalization (POCI) and national funds of the 
Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT), I. P., under the following conditions:

Scientific area: Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Aeronautical/Aerospace Engineering,  

Academic Requirements for admission: Prospective applicants should possess a Master’s degree in 
Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Aerospace/Aeronautical Engineering, Physics or related 
areas, with strong training/formation in fluid mechanics and in particular turbulence and numerical 

Activity Outline: The work is carried out within project “ELLES- Development of subgrid-scale closures for 
large-eddy simulations with viscoelastic fluids”. Specifically, several canonic turbulent flows of viscoelastic 
fluids will be investigated by Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS) and their data will be analyzed to develop 
subgrid scale closures. The viscoelastic fluids will be described by the rheological constitutive equation 
FENE-P and the subgrid scale models will allow closure of the various relevant governing equations for 
large eddy simulation (LES). Flows to be investigated are transitional and turbulent planar jet flows and 
flows between parallel plates. DNS data from homogeneous isotropic turbulence will also be available to
