► Thin film flows of complex fluids in micro-fluidic applications, University of Patra
   30 Aug, 2014 
Job Record #11991
TitleThin film flows of complex fluids in micro-fluidic applications
CategoryPostDoc Position
EmployerUniversity of Patra
LocationGreece, Patra
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateFriday, September 12, 2014
Description:
Film flows occur over a wide range of length and time scales and are central to
numerous applications in engineering, physics & biomechanics. Flows over
variable topography often lead to undesirable variations of film thickness or
technologically important pattern formation. Often the flowing material is a
polymer solution, but such studies are limited. In microelectronic applications,
polymer solutions are used for coating substrates with micro-topography. Hence
the developing film may not wet the trench or retain a uniform concentration,
effects which dramatically decrease the product quality, but are not understood.
In microfluidics, it is of interest to reduce drag by fabricating walls with
periodic trenches of a few tenths of μm in dimension, inside which air is
entrapped, and liquid cannot penetrate - super-hydrophobic surfaces. Trench
geometry, flow direction, liquid-solid affinity, etc. play a crucial role in the
development and maintenance of gas inclusions. 

This project aims at understanding the following:
1.	Transient coating of patterned substrates allowing for air encapsulation in
two and three dimensions
2.	Stability of Newtonian or viscoelastic film flowing over patterned substrates
with or without air inclusions between them
3.	Stress-induced migration of polymer chains in solution in steady film flow
over topography

Skills and experience that will be considered positively include:
1.	Knowledge of Fluid Mechanics and Rheology.
2.	Programming in C#, C++, FORTRAN and code parallelization.
3.	Ability to work independently and as a team member.

The selected researcher will receive financial support commensurate with his/her
experience and skills, but will be no less than 2200 Euro.

The deadline to accept applications has been extended to Sep. 12, 2014!

All interested for the position should submit the following (In case they have
not done so already):
1. Detailed CV
2. Copies of previous degrees
3. Copies of scientific publications in Journals or presentations in Conferences
etc.
4. Names of 3 people that could provide reference letters 
5. Their skype address for direct communication and possible interview.

CategoryPostDoc Position

InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateFriday, September 05, 2014
Description:
The final goal of this project is to predict stabilization conditions of various
muds that are of interest in the Pharmaceutical industry.
 
The applicant interested in this position will advance our numerical algorithms
in order to study the settling of one or more solid particles of known shapes in
a well-characterized complex fluid in terms of its rheological properties
(viscosity, elasticity and plasticity). The algorithms for a single particle
will predict (a) the flow and stress fields around these objects (b) the shape
and location of the yield surfaces and (c) conditions for particle entrapment in
the fluid. The algorithms for more particles will begin with the two-particle
problem and understand effects such as spacing and orientation distribution (for
rods) on the settling behavior. The problem will then be extended to consider
multiple-body problems in which we expect particle clustering resulting from the
superposition of yielded envelopes. 

Moreover, extended parametric studies will be performed on all critical
quantities such as mud density, size of particles, applied shear rate, and
concentration of the stabilizer (all related to the model parameters, i.e. the
Bingham, Deborah, Reynolds numbers, the ratio of solvent to polymer viscosity,
the level of shear and extensional viscosity thinning etc.) and compare the
computational results with experimental data. The codes will be parallelized and
solved iteratively on our 72-node cluster. 
This project aims at understanding the following:

Skills and experience that will be considered positively include:
1.	Knowledge of Fluid Mechanics and Rheology.
2.	Programming in C#, C++, FORTRAN and code parallelization.
3.	Ability to work independently and as a team member.

Job Record #12153
TitleAdjoint Mesh Sensitivity and Gas Turbine Design Optimisation

Description:
Rolls Royce PhD Studentship

Adjoint Mesh Sensitivity and Gas Turbine Design Optimisation

Academic supervisor: Professor Ning Qin, University of Sheffield.
Industrial supervisor: Professor Shahrokh Shahpar, Rolls Royce Plc. 

Aerodynamic analysis and optimisation are playing an ever increasingly important 
role in gas turbine design. In aerodynamic optimisation, the adjoint based 
optimisation allows for very detailed shape optimisation with hundreds or 
thousands design variables in an efficient way. 

This project focuses on using adjoint analysis to help generating the best mesh 
for turbomachinery analysis and design optimisation. Appropriate meshing is a 
key step in the computational simulation process. The adjoint analysis allows 
for the sensitivity of the performance parameters, such as efficiency, against 
design and mesh parameters to be extracted so that the mesh can be well 
distributed for accurate flow simulations, leading to reliable and optimal 
product designs. At the later stage of the project, novel gas turbine designs 
will be investigated and optimised for efficiency gain.      
   
The candidate should have or expect to have a good (1st or 2i) 
aerospace/mechanical engineering, computer science or related physical science 
degree. S/he should be enthusiastic about aerodynamic development, design 
optimisation and practical aerospace applications. Some experience in 
turbomachinery aerodynamics and/or computational fluid dynamics is preferred but 
not essential. 

The studentship is available from September 2014. The duration for the 
studentship is 3 years and the student is expected to spend some time during the 
study at Rolls Royce plc. in Derby with its engineering development team in the 
company. The award covers the tuition fees for UK/European students and a 
stipend of £15,000 per year tax free.
