|Title||Flow of molten salt around a gas bubble under a magnetic field|
|International||Yes, international applications are welcome|
|Closure Date||Saturday, February 01, 2014|
A postdoctoral position in the field of Numerical modeling of MHD flows is
available at the EPM department of the SIMAP laboratory (see for instance
This position is funded by Grenoble Institue of Technology (Grenoble-INP). As an
application of the proposed research, special emphasis is put on the Molten Salt
Fast Reactor and its related developments (MSFR prototype International GEN IV
forum, cf. http://www.gen-4.org/Technology/systems/msr.htm). The aim of the
MSFR concept is the development of a future nuclear reactor able to comply with
requirements of GEN IV forum on nuclear safety, especially on the stability of
nuclear fission reactions, as well as on nuclear wastes management. This is why
the nuclear fuel under consideration is based on thorium solubilized in an
electrically conductive molten salt.
In this context, the aim of the research proposed is to investigate numerically
the effect of an imposed magnetic field on a gas inclusion (isolated bubble)
flowing in a molten salt (liquid nuclear fuel). The aim is to investigate how a
magnetic field can facilitate the online extraction of wastes from primary loop
of the nuclear liquid fuel.
The applicant should have a PhD and strong knowledges either in
magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) or in numerical developments for flow modeling. User
capabilities in CFD codes such as FLUENT and/or COMSOL are welcome. Knowledges
on two-phase flows are an advantage but remain optional.
To apply, please send a letter describing your PhD work and a CV to Pr. L.
DAVOUST (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Dr. O. DOCHE
