Job Record #15619
TitleLarge Eddy Simulations of atmospheric flows
CategoryPostDoc Position
EmployerBarcelona Supercomputing Center - CASE department
LocationSpain, Barcelona, Barcelona
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateMonday, February 04, 2019
Description:
The fellow will join the BSC CASE Department, with research lines on mesoscale and microscale 
meteorological modelling, wind energy, and atmospheric transport modelling. He/she will perform research 
on explicit Large Eddy Simulations (LES) atmospheric model implementations using the in-house 
multiphysics Alya solver  (https://www.bsc.es/research-development/research-areas/engineering-
simulations/alya-high-performance-computational) on both general purpose and emerging hardware 
architectures towards Exascale computing. Research applications will focus on the fields of wind energy 
(modelling of on-shore and off-shore wind farms considering all aspects affecting surface layer 
atmospheric flows in complex terrains) and high-resolution wind field modelling and dispersion of 
pollutants at urban-scale. The wind energy application will be done in collaboration with a world leading 
industry (Iberdrola Renovables) through the SEDAR (“Simulación eólica de alta resolución”) project. In 
addition, the fellow will also collaborate giving a transversal service to the following on-going projects: 
•	LegaTo in improving the Alya LES-CFD explicit solver efficiency in a demonstrator for future 
operational air quality modelling system based on CFD and covering large urban domains at high 
resolution (tens of meters).
•	Energy oriented Center of Excellence for computer applications (EoCoE, www.eocoe.eu ) in modelling 
wind in complex terrains accounting for wind turbine rotor and wake effects.

Keywords

- LES Wall modeling - equilibrium & non-equilibrium (RANS/LES) models.
- Inflow boundary conditions.
- ABL specific LES models and innovative models such as ILSA.
- Actuator disc & actuator line models.
- Thermal coupling (stable and unstable conditions)
- Coriolis force.




Eligibility:

o   PhD obtained between 2011 and 2016 (there are some exceptions)

o   2 years of postdoctoral experience out of Spain

o   To have not worked more than 12 months in Spain during last 3 years
