► Multi-disciplinary Design Optimisation of Air Vehicles, University of Southampton
   21 Nov, 2014 
Job Record #12227
TitleMulti-disciplinary Design Optimisation of Air Vehicles
CategoryPhD Studentship
EmployerUniversity of Southampton
LocationUnited Kingdom, Southampton
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateTuesday, March 31, 2015
Description:
Multi-level Multi-fidelity Design Optimisation of Air Vehicles

We are looking to fully fund several PhD positions for excellent (first class) UK/EU students in the areas of geometry, aerodynamics, structures, and optimisation. The students will be expected to participate in other interesting research projects.

If you want to be considered, please send your CV and any other relevant document supporting your suitability as candidate. It is very important that you demonstrate your experience in programming and theoretical background. Messages without attached documents will be discarded. Due to a large number of inquiries, we won't be able to replay to all messages.

Project Overview

There is a definite lack of knowledge and capabilities to design and build next-generation air vehicles to be flown in a ten to twenty years’ time frame. Current design trends in the aerospace industry give raise to very flexible structures with low frequency modes. The complex interactions between different fields, e.g. structural dynamics, unsteady fluids, aerodynamic effectors, are not well understood. Traditional design approaches are inadequate to address these problems in a realistic manner. The development of new methodologies that are based on a physical formulation and not on empiricisms and the ability to go beyond traditional design paradigms are instrumental to successfully create a unique suite of computational tools that will be adopted by national agencies involved with futuristic concepts.

The project will develop a framework for high-fidelity multidisciplinary simulations. The framework will consists of a set of tools to perform conceptual design using novel methodologies, optimisation, and fast and accurate assessment for military air vehicles. The successful development of a multidisciplinary framework depends not only on the ability to provide an interface to existing codes, but also on the algorithms used for each component of the vehicle design and analysis. These will include, among others, specialist codes for handling the geometry, aerodynamics, control, propulsion, structures, and mass and inertia. To overcome the difficulty of choosing the right compromise of costs and accuracy at various stages of the vehicle design and analysis, a hierarchy of modelling techniques are used. The flight conditions will range from subsonic to supersonic, and eventually hypersonic.

Project Partners

The project will benefit from a close interconnection with the national defence agency, commercial partners, and other English universities.

Ideal Candidates

The ideal candidate should hold a first class or equivalent degree in engineering or related disciplines with good insights in aerospace/aeronautical systems. It is expected that the projects will start no later than March 2015.

Essential requirements are:

  • analytical and numerical skills;
  • demonstrated programming experience (Matlab & Python as prerequisite; C/Fortran/MPI as desirable);
  • independence and capacity to take the lead of the project.

Desirable skills are:

  • deliver timely and quality reports;
  • good communication skills.
Why study at University of Southampton?

As the research project will take place at the University of Southampton (UOS), UK, it is important you realise what the University has to offer and why it makes the ideal place to conduct your research.

  • The UOS is one of the UK’s top ten research-intensive universities, receiving over £102.3M in research grants and contracts in 2012/13, including over £14.9M from the European Commission.
  • The UOS, one of the leading universities in Britain, was founded in 1952 and is a member of the prestigious Russell Group, an excellent venue for conducting cutting-edge research and for providing high quality education. It has been ranked as one of the top 15 research universities in the UK (Guardian 2011) and in the top 75 of the world (2012 QS World University Rankings).
  • The Faculty of Engineering and the Environment (FEE) at the UOS is one of the leading engineering faculties in Europe, with a strong focus on addressing real world problems that affect and involve people and the environment.
  • Facilities: the FEE has an enviable variety of wind tunnels that are used in its extensive teaching and research programmes but are also available for commercial hire. In addition, the UOS supercomputing facility (Iridis4) is one of the top supercomputing sites in the UK. The current Iridis4 is our fourth generation cluster and here is a list of its tops
    • the most powerful academic supercomputer in England;
    • the second largest academic computational facility in the UK behind National Facility;
    • in Top 15 academic computational facilities in Europe;
    • in Top 30 academic computational facilities in the World.

Description:
15 PhD positions in EC-funded project 

Industrial Optimal Design using Adjoint CFD (IODA)

Significant advances have been made with numerical optimisation of shapes and
topologies using CFD, for example to minimise drag or maximise efficiency.
Adjoint CFD methods have become essential tools that are now regularly employed
in aerodynamic design. The EC FlowHead projects http://flowhead.sems.qmul.ac.uk
and About Flow http://aboutflow.sems.qmul.ac.uk have built on these advances and
have developed adjoint CFD optimisation methods for general-purpose industrial
application.

IODA will further advance with the integration of the adjoint optimisation
methods into complete design loops. The particular focus is on 
- linking CAD and optimisation,
- linking topology and shape optimisation, 
- the development of effective methods to impose constraints and
- improved efficiency and robustness of adjoint solvers and design loops.

The project is a MCA Initial Training Network funded by the EC.

The project will start January 2015 and run for 4 years. Candidates need to have
an MSc or equivalent in Engineering (Aerospace, Mechanical or related), Applied
Mathematics (Discretisation of PDEs) or Computer Science (Geometric Modelling
and Compilers), depending on the particular project. Detailed information about
each of the PhD projects is provided at 
http://ioda.sems.qmul.ac.uk/people/fellows/

The EC's eligibility on Early Stage Researchers requires that they have
graduated with an MSC or equivalent at most 4 years before their recruitment. To
fulfil the EC's mobility rule, they must not have resided in the country where
their PhD project is hosted for more than 12 months since January 2012.

The PhD students in the network will receive training in a wide area of adjoint
methods, high-performance computing, industrial application and other
professional skills through regular workshops and secondments to network
partners. The project offers a unique opportunity to be at the forefront of this
revolutionary area of research and be part of developing the next generation CFD
methods. The project is committed to equal opportunity for all applicants and
will adhere to the The European Charter for Researchers.

Further information on the project be found at 
http://ioda.sems.qmul.ac.uk/
