TitlePhD-Researcher Position on Flow Physics of Load Reduction(B2.A)
CategoryPhD Studentship

LocationGermany, Braunschweig
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure Date* None *
Description:
PhD-Researcher Position B2.A on "Numerical Investigation of Active Load Reduction on Sub- and Transonic Wings", temporary position (4 years), salary level TV-L E13, 100%

Background
The Cluster of Excellence SE2A – Sustainable and Energy Efficient Aviation (www.tu-braunschweig.de/se2a) is a DFG-funded interdisciplinary research center investigating technologies for a sustainable and eco-friendly air transport system. Scientists from engineering, economics, chemistry, and biology are working on the reduction of drag, emissions, and noise, life-cycle concepts for airframes, improvements in air traffic management, and new technologies for energy storage and conversion. Technische Universität (TU) Braunschweig, the German Aerospace Center (DLR), Leibniz University Hannover (LUH), Braunschweig University of Art (HBK), and National Metrology Institute of Germany (PTB) have joined forces in this extraordinary scientific undertaking. The overall project is structured into the three core research areas “Assessment of the Air Transport System”, “Flight Physics and Vehicle Systems”, and “Energy Storage & Conversion”.
As part of the Cluster of Excellence, a Junior Research Group (JRG) has been established with a focus on “Flow Physics of Load Reduction”. Aircraft wings are subject to dynamic loads caused by unsteady gusts and flight maneuvers, which reduce passenger comfort and induce structural wing deformations that are typically countered by sturdier and, consequently, heavier wing designs. To reduce the wing weight, gust and maneuver load alleviation systems are already in use in today’s aircraft, where they dynamically actuate existing control surfaces like ailerons or elevators to alter the wing lift distribution during an unsteady load encounter. These systems, however, suffer from the relatively slow response of conventional control surfaces and therefore cannot exploit the full potential of gust and maneuver load alleviation. The JRG on “Flow Physics of Load Reduction” will contribute to the development of a new generation of Active Load Reduction systems by investigating the flow physics and control authority of dedicated flow actuators that have the potential to provide fast, efficient, and load-dependent lift redistribution over the entire wingspan. A detailed description of the project, preliminary work plan, and JRG is available here: https://www.tu-braunschweig.de/ism/se2a/b2

There are currently 2 open PhD-Researcher positions within this Junior Research Group. The present PhD-Researcher position B2.A focuses on unsteady flow simulations of 2D airfoils and 3D wings with dedicated flow field actuators for both sub- and transonic flow conditions. The position will closely collaborate with a second PhD-Researcher within the JRG and other groups of the SE2A Research Cluster.

Specific Tasks for Position B2.A:
  • Survey and preliminary investigation of potential actuator concepts
  • Numerical analysis of selected actuator concepts on 2D wing sections and fully-3D wings
  • Contribution to wind tunnel model development and data validation with experimental results
  • Development, optimization, and validation of Reduced Order Models based on numerical and experimental data
  • PhD degree can be acquired

Who we are looking for:
  • Outstanding candidates who have completed or are in the process of completing a Master Degree in Aerospace Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or a comparable field
  • Team-oriented, reliable, and self-motivated work attitude
  • Experience with running numerical simulations with commercial or in-house codes
  • Solid knowledge of fluid mechanics, ideally flow control, transonic flow, and CFD
  • Excellent oral and writing skills in English
  • Good programming skills (e.g. C, C++, Fortran, Python), Linux
  • Experience with Matlab, CAD software, FE analysis, wind tunnel testing, and reduced order models is an advantage

Benefits
We offer excellent working conditions in an international and interdisciplinary research environment. Salary and working hours are in accordance with the funding guidelines of the TU Braunschweig for PhD researchers. Working hours are full-time and the salary is according to TV-L E13. Furthermore, the positions come with 30 days of paid vacation per year and the opportunity to participate in the Graduate Academy “GradTUBS” that offers support and training courses for all PhD candidates.

PhD-Researcher Position B2.B on "Experimental and Numerical Investigation of Active Load Reduction on Subsonic Wings", temporary position (4 years), salary level TV-L E13, 100%

Background
The Cluster of Excellence SE2A – Sustainable and Energy Efficient Aviation (www.tu-braunschweig.de/se2a) is a DFG-funded interdisciplinary research center investigating technologies for a sustainable and eco-friendly air transport system. Scientists from engineering, economics, chemistry, and biology are working on the reduction of drag, emissions, and noise, life-cycle concepts for airframes, improvements in air traffic management, and new technologies for energy storage and conversion. Technische Universität (TU) Braunschweig, the German Aerospace Center (DLR), Leibniz University Hannover (LUH), Braunschweig University of Art (HBK), and National Metrology Institute of Germany (PTB) have joined forces in this extraordinary scientific undertaking. The overall project is structured into the three core research areas “Assessment of the Air Transport System”, “Flight Physics and Vehicle Systems”, and “Energy Storage & Conversion”.
As part of the Cluster of Excellence, a Junior Research Group (JRG) has been established with a focus on “Flow Physics of Load Reduction”. Aircraft wings are subject to dynamic loads caused by unsteady gusts and flight maneuvers, which reduce passenger comfort and induce structural wing deformations that are typically countered by sturdier and, consequently, heavier wing designs. To reduce the wing weight, gust and maneuver load alleviation systems are already in use in today’s aircraft, where they dynamically actuate existing control surfaces like ailerons or elevators to alter the wing lift distribution during an unsteady load encounter. These systems, however, suffer from the relatively slow response of conventional control surfaces and therefore cannot exploit the full potential of gust and maneuver load alleviation. The JRG on “Flow Physics of Load Reduction” will contribute to the development of a new generation of Active Load Reduction systems by investigating the flow physics and control authority of dedicated flow actuators that have the potential to provide fast, efficient, and load-dependent lift redistribution over the entire wingspan. A detailed description of the project, preliminary work plan, and JRG is available here: https://www.tu-braunschweig.de/ism/se2a/b2

There are currently 2 open PhD-Researcher positions within this Junior Research Group. The present PhD-Researcher position B2.B focuses on wind tunnel tests and unsteady flow simulations of 2D airfoils and 3D wings with dedicated flow field actuators for subsonic flow conditions. The position will closely collaborate with a second PhD-Researcher within the JRG and other groups of the SE2A Research Cluster.

Specific Tasks for Position B2.B:
  • Survey and preliminary investigation of potential actuator concepts
  • Numerical analysis of selected actuator concepts on 2D wing sections and fully-3D wings
  • Design, manufacturing, and testing of 2D and 3D wind tunnel models for validation experiments
  • Development, optimization, and validation of Reduced Order Models based on numerical and experimental data
  • PhD degree can be acquired

Who we are looking for:
  • Outstanding candidates who have completed or are in the process of completing a Master Degree in Aerospace Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or a comparable field
  • Team-oriented, reliable, and self-motivated work attitude
  • Solid knowledge of fluid mechanics, ideally flow control, experimental methods, and CFD
  • Experience with one or more of the following techniques: force balances, surface pressure measurements, Particle Image Velocimetry, wind tunnel testing
  • Excellent oral and writing skills in English
  • Good programming skills (e.g. C, C++, Fortran, Python), Linux
  • Experience with Matlab, CAD software, FE analysis, and reduced order models is an advantage

Benefits
We offer excellent working conditions in an international and interdisciplinary research environment. Salary and working hours are in accordance with the funding guidelines of the TU Braunschweig for PhD researchers. Working hours are full-time and the salary is according to TV-L E13. Furthermore, the positions come with 30 days of paid vacation per year and the opportunity to participate in the Graduate Academy “GradTUBS” that offers support and training courses for all PhD candidates.
