Turbulent drag reduction by wavy wall

  
Applications are invited for a Ph.D. studentship in the Department of 
Aeronautics, co-supervised by Prof S. Chernyshenko and Prof M. Leschziner and 
funded by the Technology Strategy Board (TSB), UK.

The project will aim to investigate a novel concept for reducing surface-
friction drag by passive (zero-energy-input) means. This will be done by specific 
surface shaping emulating a particular, active (energy-consuming), flow-control 
method by transverse oscillatory in-plane wall motion, known to be very 
effective in terms of gross drag reduction. The idea is described in 
[Chernyshenko S (2013), arXiv:1304.4638]. A overview talk of the recent advances 
in drag reduction is linked from 
https://www.imperial.ac.uk/aeronautics/fluiddynamics/turbulence/misc.php.


The work will consist in direct numerical simulation of the flow in a plane 
channel with a body force emulating the effect of a wavy wall with parameters 
determined in the preliminary study, followed by a calculation of the flow in a 
channel with wavy walls. An in-house DNS code will be used. The calculations 
will provide proof of concept (or otherwise) of the idea. Particular attention 
will be paid to the balance between the gain due to suppression of turbulence 
and the drag generated by the wavy wall, thus contributing to fundamental 
understanding of flows with drag reduction.  
 
Applicants should hold, or expect to achieve, a 1st class or equivalent degree 
in either engineering or mathematics. A high level of programming ability will 
be required. Knowledge of Fortran, parallel programming including MPI, and 
knowledge of fluid dynamics, especially with focus on turbulence, are 
advantageous. However, greater importance will be placed upon the mathematical 
ability, willingness, and ability to learn new techniques. 
 
The studentship is for three and a half years starting as soon as possible. 

The studentship provide  full  coverage  of  tuition  fees at home rate (also 
suitable for EU students)  and  an  annual  tax-free  stipend  of  circa  
£16,000.  Students outside EU are eligible but will have to cover from 
alternative sources the difference between overseas fees and home fees.

Applications will be assessed as received and all applicants should follow the 
standard College application process 
(http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/pgprospectus/howtoapply). Informal enquiries and 
request for additional information can be made to s.chernyshenko@imperial.ac.uk. 
Should you have any queries regarding the application process please contact Ms 
Tayo Nong by email to: t.nong@imperial.ac.uk or phone on +44 (0)20 7594 5056.

Closure Date* None *
Description:
Description of the project
ADEME (French national agency for energy and environment), ArcelorMittal, together with other partners, 
recently launched the VALORCO (valorisation of CO2) research project, of which the present study is part.
The shaft furnace process for the so-called direct reduction of iron ore consists in reducing iron oxides 
pellets by gases (CO and H2) in the solid form at about 900 °C in a countercurrent reactor. One advantage 
of the direct reduction over the conventional blast furnace route is the lower CO2 emissions of the process. 
In the PhD work proposed, it is intended to develop a mathematical and numerical model of the shaft 
reactor. This model will be validated against industrial plant data and used to optimize the process. In 
particular the influence of the reducing gas composition on the performance of the process is a key point, 
as a wider development of the direct reduction depends on its ability to be fed with various gas sources 
(natural gas, coke oven gas, coal gas). 
The model will be built on the basis of an existing Fortran code, REDUCTOR, which simulates a shaft 
furnace operated with pure hydrogen as a reductant gas.
Limited specific experiments will be carried out, especially thermogravimetry and scanning electron 
microscopy, to get kinetic data for the model.
Finally, a life cycle assessment of the global direct reduction process, the shaft furnace plus the gas 
treatment facilities, will be engaged to be able to compare various configurations from an environmental 
standpoint.
The applicant will be in charge of developing such a mathematical model, conducting the supporting 
experiments, analysing the bibliography, improving the kinetic models, discussing the results, writing 
reports and scientific publications on his/her work.

Profile
Applicant with an Engineer degree or a Master degree in chemical or metallurgical engineering, with a 
good background in transport phenomena (heat and mass). Knowledge in numerical simulation would be 
appreciated. Fluency in English is required. 

Funding
A 3-year contract with the University, around 1650 € net per month.
