Position: Postdoc in Adjoint Methods in CFD
Institution: Technical University of Denmark
Location: Kongens Lyngby, Lyngby‐Taarbæk Municipality, Denmark
Duties: Your work will focus on the development, validation, implementation and application of novel free form optimization methods. You will be working as an integral part of the development group around the EllipSys3D solver. Your final aim is to solidify the existing MDO framework as a state-of-the-art high fidelity design tool for blades where airfoil shape, aerodynamic planform and structural properties are optimised simultaneously; You will work in national and international research projects, and apply the newest research together with leading manufactures within the wind turbine industry. The research will be published in highly ranked international journals; Candidates should have a PhD degree or equivalent preferably within or related to the subject. This entails: a strong background in CFD; experience within rotor design - preferably based on high-fidelity models; being well-versed within multidisciplinary design optimization; The tasks rely heavily on high performance computing which necessitates experience with large scale computation on clusters. Finally, it would be highly advantageous to have experience within the development of fluid and adjoint solvers

Apply online DTU Wind Energy, Section for Aerodynamic Design (AER), invites applicants for a postdoc position in Adjoint Methods in CFD. The AER section focuses on aerodynamic and aeroacoustic research based on modelling and experimental techniques. The research in the AER deals with fidelities ranging from engineering models to vortex-based and CFD models, facilitating Fluid Structure Interaction methods and multidisciplinary design. The tools and knowledge are applied in interaction with the industry in the design process for solving problems or implementing new concepts. Further, the new Poul la Cour Wind Tunnel, the Research Turbine, and the Rotating Test Rig are integrated into our research. The research field of the position is wind turbine rotor shape optimization based on Computational Fluid Dynamics exploring adjoint optimization methods. Focus is on further development and refinement of an already existing adjoint method in the in-house CFD solver EllipSys3D, coupling to high fidelity structural models and multidisciplinary design optimization (MDO). The adjoint and CFD solvers are integral components in an MDO framework also comprising a Free-form deformation (FFD) tool, and an easy-to-use Python API targeting a broader user base in the industry.
