Position: Research Fellow in Pipe Flow Fluid Structure Interaction Simulations
Institution: University College London
Department: Civil, Environmental & Geomatic Engineering
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The Research Fellow in Pipe Flow Fluid Structure Interaction Simulations will work on the EPSRC-funded project “Distributed Fibre-optic Cable Sensing For Buried Pipe Infrastructure”. The postholder will develop strategies to simulate deformation of compliant walls inside a pipe using the method of large-eddy simulation (LES), perform LES at the high-performance cluster at UCL, and will revise and improve fluid-structure interaction algorithms based on the findings. This will involve collaborating closely with the academic partners at University of Sheffield. The postholder will also contribute to the writing of journal and conference papers, to workshop and conference presentations, and to Departmental research, teaching and knowledge transfer activities as required
Requirements: The successful candidate will have a first degree in civil or mechanical engineering (or a related field) and a PhD in field related to computational fluid mechanics. Excellent knowledge of computational fluid mechanics, specifically LES or DNS, and experience of designing, conducting and analysing numerical simulations of turbulent flows, are essential. Excellent knowledge of and experience with Tecplot or Paraview, and an ability to work collaboratively and as part of a team in a research community are also essential. Experience with Finite Element Methods for structural calculations, and experience with analysing large-data set using statistical methods would be an advantage
