Job Record #19048
TitlePostDoc : Fragmentation of small aggregates in turbulent flows
CategoryPostDoc Position
EmployerCNR NANOTEC Institute of Nanotechnology
LocationItaly, Lecce
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateMonday, April 15, 2024
This postdoctoral project focuses on the role of hydrodynamical stresses 
in the fragmentation process of modeled micro-plastics in realistic flow conditions. 

In particular, the research consists in performing Direct Numerical Simulations (DNS) of a turbulent suspension of fiber-like small fragments, by means of an Eulerian–Lagrangian approach. 

The goal is to compute the dynamics and statistical properties of fragments dispersed in the turbulent flow, and study how turbulent velocity gradient statistics impact their fragmentation rate.

This post-doctorate is founded by Italian Ministry of University and Research within the PRIN PNRR project “BREAKUP - Numerical and Experimental Investigation of Small Plastics Breakup in Complex Flows”.
The project is a collaboration between theoretician/numericists (CNR NANOTEC, Lecce, Italy) and experimentalists (Dept of Chemical Engineering, Univ. Federico II in Naples, Italy).
