PhD Studentship: Cavity collapses in complex geometries
Aerodynamics & Flight Mechanics Group
Location: Highfield Campus
Closing Date: Friday 01 December 2017
Project Reference: AACE-AFM-153
Project Theme: Fluid Dynamics
One of the most violent free surface flows is the collapse of a cavitation bubble. The focusing of energy in such a collapse is strong enough to damage ship propellers, but can also be used to clean surfaces or enhance chemical reactions. The way that a bubble collapses depends on the type and the shape of the materials in the vicinity of the bubble. The aim of this project is to address a basic fundamental aspect of this energy focusing mechanism, by investigating the influence of complex surrounding geometries on the collapse of a single bubble.
In this project you will use a variety of experimental techniques, which include high-speed imaging, general image processing and particle image velocimetry. The candidate should have a degree in physical sciences or engineering and have an interest in fluid dynamics.
The studentship is fully funded at EU/UK rate. If you wish to discuss any details of the project informally, please contact Dr Ivo Peters, Aerodynamics and Flight Mechanics research group, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org, Tel: +44 (0) 2380 59 4643.
