The goal of this project is to use Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) methods for the analysis of turbulent flows around wings with different wing-tip geometries. To this end, high-order spectral methods will be employed to perform both well-resolved large-eddy simulations and direct numerical simulations, in order to assess the influence of pressure-gradient, wall curvature and three-dimensionality in the dynamics of wall-bounded turbulence. We are in particular interested in assessing the impact of wing-tip vortices on the wing drag, and on developing methods to analyze their formation mechanisms. The researcher will become part of the Linné FLOW Centre ( www.flow.kth.se ), where he/she will have the possibility to interact with several related projects dealing with large-scale wing simulations and corresponding experiments, and will also have access to the multi-peta scale supercomputing facilities available at KTH, in conjunction with the Swedish e-Science Research Centre (SeRC, www.e-science.se ). Furthermore, the researcher will have close interaction with our on-going work within the EU Centre of Excellence Excellerat ( www.excellerat.eu/ ) aiming at exascale simulation of industrially relevant flows, including wings and wing tips.
What we offer
A suitable background for this position would be a PhD (completed in the last three years) in Mechanicalor Aerospace Engineering or computer science with a specialization in fluid mechanics, computational methods and/or applied mathematics. In addition to the traditional academic merits, a relevant degree project, international experience, and language skills are regarded as advantageous qualifications. Applicants must possess the ability to work independently and perform critical analysis as well as possessing good levels of cooperative and communicative abilities.
Great emphasis will be placed on personal competence and suitability.
