TitleMSCA-IF Expr. Interest - LES of Bridge Decks in Turbulent Flow
CategoryPostDoc Position
EmployerUniversity of La Coruna
LocationSpain, La Coruña
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateMonday, June 15, 2020
The Structural Mechanics research group at the University of La Coruna is 
actively engaged in the following research topics: Wind Engineering, Structural 
Optimum Design and Aeronautical Structures.  The accurate CFD simulation of the 
aerodynamic and aeroelastic responses of bridge decks under turbulent flow is one 
of these areas where additional research efforts must be done.

The goal of this project proposal is to conduct 3D LES simulations of long-span 
bridge decks aiming at characterizing their expected buffeting performance. 
Parameters of interest are span-wise correlation of aerodynamic forces, pressure 
coefficient distributions and aerodynamic admittance functions.

The Structural Mechanics research group at the University of La Coruna is thus 
willing to support one candidate to apply for the Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions 
(MSCA-IF 2020).

The successful candidate will be based at University of La Coruna under the 
supervision of Dr. Felix Nieto and will spend 6 months in University of Bologna 
under the supervision of Dr. Luca Patruno. International applications are
