TitleCFD and Building Energy Simulation for Concrete Core Activation
CategoryPhD Studentship
EmployerLeuven University, Dept of Civil Engineering, Building Physics
LocationBelgium, Leuven
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateTuesday, July 15, 2014
The Building Physics Section at the Department of Civil Engineering at Leuven
University is searching for an outstanding candidate for a PhD study on CFD and
Building Energy Simulations of thermal concrete core activation. The supervisors
are Dirk Saelens and Bert Blocken.

The project consists of the development, verification and validation of CFD and
BES models for the convective, conductive and radiative heat transfer in a room
equipped with thermal concrete core activation. The CFD simulations are
performed with RANS and LES. The simulations are validated with full-scale
measurements in the VLIET test building at Leuven University. 

The applicant will develop a research proposal with the supervisors during
August 2014 to jointly apply for the research funding. The starting date of the
PhD study is October 2014.

Applicants must have achieved a Master's degree (possibly ManaMa,
Master-after-Master) which fits with the PhD project, with at least a
"Distinction" (Cum Laude) or with an equivalent grade. The preferred background
of the candidate is Building Engineering, Civil Engineering, Aerospace
Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or equivalent.

The applicant must have completed his/her master degree no longer than 5 years ago.

Nationality requirements: the applicant must be a national of a Member State of
the European Economic Area (i.e. EU + Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein) or

Specific eligibility requirements: applicants may not have had more than 18
months paid scientific (research) experience at the start of the 1st term of the
PhD grant, which is October 2014.
