TitlePhD Studentship in Large Eddy Simulation (updated)
CategoryPhD Studentship
EmployerDept. Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Monash University
LocationAustralia, Victoria, Melbourne
InternationalNo, only national applications will be considered
Closure DateTuesday, November 20, 2018
We seek a highly motivated and quantitatively talented candidate to pursue a PhD
project on computational modeling of turbulent boundary layers using Large Eddy
Simulation (LES).  Turbulent boundary layers arise in the flow around all bodies
in a myriad of practical applications including aircraft, ships and motor
vehicles.  Not only does the boundary layer define the aerodynamic or
hydrodynamic drag, the interaction of the boundary layer with other parts of the
vehicle is a source of flow-generated noise.  Although Large Eddy Simulation can
be reliably used to predict drag, prediction of flow-generated noise is still a
challenging undertaking because of the failure of LES to adequately resolve the
fine scale turbulence fluctuations that leads to difficulty in predicting the
high frequency acoustic signal.  In this project we will develop techniques to
extend the traditional LES framework to predict this part of the acoustic spectrum. 

This project will be undertaken in collaboration with DST Group and offers a
$32K p.a. tax-free scholarship.

Interested candidates should first contact Prof. Murray Rudman on for detail of the application procedure.  Please do NOT
send applications before doing this. 

Please note: Only Australian citizens OR permanent residents are eligible to
apply for this position.
