PhD Studentship - Experimental Aerodynamics and Environmental Flows

Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering

Location:  Boldrewood Campus
Closing Date:  Wednesday 31 March 2021
Reference:  1323220DA

Supervisory Team:    Dr Christina Vanderwel

 Project description

Currently recruiting a PhD student in the field of Experimental Aerodynamics and Environmental Flows to join our UKRI FLF project team “Simulating urban air pollution in the lab”. The aim of this research is to apply novel laboratory techniques to simulate wind patterns and air pollution in urban areas. These experiments will provide cutting-edge measurements that will improve our capability to model and predict urban air quality.

 You will become a part of a group of highly motivated researchers in the experimental fluid mechanics research laboratory whose efforts are directed towards using state-of-the-art diagnostics to understand the physics of turbulent flows. We are part of the National Wind Tunnel Facility of the UK (www.nwtf.ac.uk) and have several wind tunnels and water channels on site for studying experimental fluid mechanics (see www.southampton.ac.uk/windtunnels/)

Applicants should have a keen interest in Fluid Mechanics and possess good analytical skills. An aptitude for experimental research work is desirable. Candidates require (or are expected to gain) a good upper-second or first-class honours degree in a relevant discipline (Engineering, Physics, Mathematics etc). 

 If you wish to discuss any details of the project informally, please contact Dr Christina Vanderwel, Aerodynamics and Flight Mechanics Research Group.
