Applications are invited for a PhD studentship to develop novel computational fluid dynamics (CFD) algorithms within the Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre (UTC) for Thermo-Fluid Systems at the University of Surrey. Studentship covers tuition fees and a stipend. International PhD studentship is available in the field of mathematics and statistics.
About Scholarship: Students interested in this project should have a good first degree in a relevant field, should be highly motivated, and have an aptitude for both programming and numerical work. This project would particularly suit applicants with an applied mathematics degree and an interest in engineering.
Study: Development of CFD Algorithms for Turbo-Machinery
Course Level: PhD degree level
Scholarship by: University of Surrey, Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre in Thermo-Fluid Systems.
-Applications are invited for a PhD studentship to develop novel computational fluid dynamics (CFD) algorithms within the Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre (UTC) for Thermo-Fluid Systems at the University of Surrey.
-The Thermo-Fluid Systems UTC has been actively involved in CFD development for many years.
-Implicit CFD algorithms have been demonstrated to be much more efficient than explicit algorithms for certain classes of problems.
-This project will aim to develop improved implicit algorithms within a Rolls-Royce in-house CFD code.
Scholarship Open for: Oerseas applicants are eligible for this PhD studentship.
Value: A full studentship (payment of tuition fees and a stipend of approximately £19,000 pa) is available for this project. The studentship is open to overseas applicants with full payment of tuition fees but with a reduced stipend.
Deadline: 3 September 2013
