|Title||CFD of Fan Aerodynamics|
|Location||United Kingdom, Cambridge|
|International||Yes, international applications are welcome|
|Closure Date||* None *|
Cambridge University Engineering Department seeks applicants for a PhD research project on the CFD
simulation of fan aerodynamics. Full funding is available. The position is anticipated to commence in
October 2013. The project is partly funded by Rolls-Royce plc. The candidate will explore the use of
state of the art numerical methods and turbulence models to improve predictive performance.
- Explore the use and develop advanced turbulence models and numerical schemes (RANS, DES, LES
- Develop numerical models that predict fan aerodynamics
- Validate these models by comparison with laboratory experiments larger scale data.
Desired skills and characteristics
Applicants should have (or expect to obtain by the start date) at least a good 2.1 degree in a subject
such as Engineering, Maths or Physics. The project will involve numerical modeling and high
performance computing . Experience with Computational Fluid Dynamics would be an advantage, but is
not essential. The candidate will be expected to conduct work with Rolls-Royce plc and thus should
have good interpersonal skills and be prepared for some travel within the UK.
Potential applicants are encouraged to contact Professor Paul Tucker (firstname.lastname@example.org) to further
