Applications are invited for a PhD studentship in the Propulsion Engineering
Centre, Cranfield University, in the field of aero-engine installation
performance and aerodynamics. 
The overall aim of the project is to facilitate the multi-objective optimisation
of short and slim engine nacelle design for the next generation of ultra-high
bypass ratio (UHBR) aero engines. UHBR engine architectures offer increased
propulsive efficiency through operation at reduced specific thrust, enabled by
increased engine diameter. This poses special challenges, both in terms of the
aerodynamic drag of the isolated nacelle and the potential for interference
effects which may be imposed by a close-coupled installation on the aircraft
wing. Overall the project encompasses nacelle optimisation and design as well as
experimental validation based on the new designs. The main focus of the PhD
research will be on the computational studies, nacelle design, optimisation and
