► Transport in partially saturated porous medium, IFPEN, University Paris Saclay (FAST)
   24 Jan, 2020 
Job Record #16408
Title Transport in partially saturated porous medium
CategoryPhD Studentship
EmployerIFPEN, University Paris Saclay (FAST)
LocationFrance, Rueil Malmaison
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateMonday, June 01, 2020
Description:
The partially saturated zone (vadose) plays an important role in many areas of 
hydrology. Recently, interest in this area has grown due to increasing 
concerns about the impact of industrial, agricultural and urban activities on 
the quality of the subsoil environment and particularly the water resources. 
The groundwater table can be contaminated by pesticides applied to 
agricultural land as they inevitably move through the partially saturated zone 
towards the aquifer. Chemicals released from municipal and industrial disposal 
sites also pose risks to the environment. Depending on rainy and dry periods, 
the saturation in the vadose zone is variable. In addition, in the future, 
longer periods of drought are expected to alternate with intense rainfall 
events. Extrapolation from current scenarios will therefore be difficult and a 
better understanding of transport at very low saturations becomes crucial.
Despite a number of studies, transport in partially saturated porous media is 
still poorly understood and divergent results are found in the literature. The 
major difficulty lies in the fact that the volume of pores accessible by 
solutes depends on the physics of the underlying immiscible two-phase flow.  
The objective of this thesis is to better understand the transport of solutes 
in partially saturated porous media and the resulting macroscopic equations. 
The thesis consists of an experimental part and a numerical part. First, we 
will carry out immiscible air-water displacements in glass micromodels and 
mini-plugs of different geometries to study the influence of pore structure 
and fluid properties on the spatial distribution of air. In a second step, we 
will perform Lattice Boltzmann transport simulations in the images taken from 
the micromodel at partial saturation to derive the macroscopic equations. 

University Master degree in relevant disciplines (physics, geoscience, math, 
informatics) is required

Description:

Opportunity for fully funded Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) PhD studentship 

Deadline for application is 31st January 2020

The University of Manchester has established funding through GCRF for studentships to build connections with countries that are overseas development assistance (OOA) recipients.

The Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) is a £1.5 billion fund announced by the government to support cutting-edge research that addresses the challenges faced by developing countries. GCRF forms part of the UK's Official Development Assistance (ODA) commitment. ODA-funded activity focuses on outcomes that promote the long-term sustainable growth of countries on the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) list. 

 

Examining the link between cardiovascular fluid dynamics and cardiovascular genetics

In recent years Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), or in silico modelling has had a profound impact on cardiovascular medicine.

In recent years Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), or in silico modelling has had a profound impact on cardiovascular medicine. In particular CFD allows for heamodynamic metrics based on as blood flow velocity, wall shear stress (WSS) and pressure to be extracted, which can be invaluable in planning treatment for congenital heart disease (CHD), particularly to elucidate complex blood flow features which are not easily detectable via standard techniques, eg echocardiography data. This PhD project builds on preliminary work undertaken as part of a recent Global Challenge Research Fund (GCRF) project on genetics, where CFD had a minor role. In order to help develop an a-priori platform to assess downstream impact of CHD interventions we will incorporate and test anatomical growth models into our software tool-chain to develop capability for computational patient-specific surgical decision making.

The project uses a multidisciplinary approach to better understand the burden and nature of congenital heart disease on the African continent and to develop appropriate solutions in response to the findings. Cardiologists, public health specialists, geneticists and engineers have worked in tandem to examine various aspects of CHD. In this PhD project we seek to extend the collaboration to include scientists from Université de Thies (UdT), Senegal and the work has two main objectives:

  1. To further develop and integrate growth modelling approximations into open source computational fluid dynamics (CFD) pipeline for congenital heart disease to a growing database of Coarctation of the Aorta (CoA) and Tetralogy of Fallot (ToF) cases. Measurements will feed into a statistical learning tool that could be used in clinical settings based on image-derived flow data. We will develop sensitivity analysis to imagine modalities of varying accuracy to reflect the range of available imaging available on the continent.
  1. To identify haemodynamics patterns and CFD-derived metrics for CHD and to test their prevalence against the growing database of genetic characteristics. This will be achieved by using statistical methods on data which has already been collected in the PROTEA database.

We seek an exceptional candidate with a strong first degree in physics, maths, engineering or bioengineering. The candidate should be keen to travel, spending up to two years in Africa, mainly based at University of Cape Town, South Africa, with visits to University of Thiès, Senegal. The candidate must have some prior programming experience and should be able to evidence the ability to work across different disciplines.

Description:

Opportunity for fully funded PhD studentship with Joint award from University of Manchester and University of Melbourne

Deadline for application is 31st January 2020

 

The objective in this exciting cross-disciplinary project is to investigate the potential of a bio- inspired coating of flexible devices to passively modify energetic modes of an unsteady crossflow and to assess, for the first time, the role of colour in determining mechanical properties. We seek an exceptional candidate with a strong first degree in physics, maths, engineering or bioengineering. The candidate (HOME/EU) should be keen to travel, spending at least 12 months in Melbourne, must have some prior programming experience and should be able to evidence the ability to work across disciplines. 

This project will build on recent interest in the bioengineering field focused on understanding the underlying potential of bio-inspired surfaces for future engineering applications. The role of filamentous structures such as feathers or fur is of particular interest since they exist as both branched and unbranched forms, they are actively controlled by muscles, and their effects on flow are complex and understudied. Colour is known to have a direct impact on the mechanical properties of hairs and feathers, due to the structural role of melanin in the keratin strands that form them. In this way, colour is thought to directly affect structural endurance of the material, via UV resistance, but it has not been proven. Furthermore, ‘structural colour’ results from microscopic features which interfere with visible light, enabling them to reflect a far greater, sometimes iridescent, range of colours than would be possible from pigmentation alone. From a biological perspective this is interesting – which came first and why?

The coordinated response of arrays of fur/feathers to a flow instability is little understood, generally restricted either to the most simplified of scenarios or bulk analysis of more complex cases. The premise of this work is that a large group of flexible fibres to can be configured as a filter, with pre-determinable bulk properties. The hypothesis is the passive response of an array of fur/feathers can be made to either damp or amplify energy at selected frequencies. Furthermore, a smart inhomogeneous arrangement of such structures may be able to redistribute energy across multiple frequencies. The resulting surface would have important consequences for engineering applications where drag and noise reduction is paramount, or for energy harvesting devices designed to extract ambient energy. The parameter space of such a system is vast, and we navigate these dimensions by considering cases arising in nature, where conditions are clearly
defined for given species. We will make use of existing data to categorise the structure of a range of filamentous structures for bird and mammal skin that are candidates for flow modification: (e.g. penguin/cormorant feathers; seal/beaver fur). We link engineering fluid dynamics with world-leading natural science research at both institutions, to explore animal locomotion and the link between the colour, form and structure of natural coatings, to find out whether there is a link between performance and colour.

► ANALYSIS OF THE FLAT PLATE PULSATING HEAT PIPE, Institut Polytechnique des Sciences Avancées
   21 Jan, 2020 
Job Record #16403
TitleANALYSIS OF THE FLAT PLATE PULSATING HEAT PIPE
CategoryInternship
EmployerInstitut Polytechnique des Sciences Avancées
LocationFrance, Paris
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateSaturday, February 15, 2020
Description:
Pulsating Heat Pipe (PHP) is a passive two-phase heat transfer device based on 
phase change induced motions of working fluid from evaporator to condenser and, 
as wicked heat pipes and thermosyphons, exploit both sensible and latent heat 
transfer modes. Due to high heat transfer capability, simple structure and 
ability of operating under different gravity levels and different positions, 
PHPs could become a novel thermal management system.
Flat Plate Pulsating Heat Pipe have been developed in Institute P’ (ISAE-ENSMA) 
using different fluids as well water, alcohols and their solutions as working 
fluids for conducting performance tests under microgravity conditions. Main 
objectives of this internship are to characterize performance ability of PHP 
for electronic cooling for the space applications and to determine the 
thermohydraulic working principles of the present FPPHP.
Internship student will participate in the experimental campaign (hosted by 
PPRIME Institute – ISAEENSMA) with all technical support and analyze obtained 
results. Temperature and pressure measurement will be done as well high-speed 
visualization. Also, intern will work on the analysis of the results (focus on 
the video analysis) obtained during last parabolic flight campaign (ESA’s 71th 
parabolic flight campaign).
