PhD position

Computat
ional Aeroacoustics


"FlowAirs" is an international research and training network
(ITN)
funded by the EU's Marie
Curie People p
rogramme. The acronym "FlowAirs" stands for "Silent Air Flows in transport,
buildings and power generation".
Participants from 6 countries
include

academic inst
itutions
and partners from
industry
.

Several positions for doctoral student ("early stage researcher")
are open immediately with the network partners.

The project is coordinated by Yves Auregan
from
Laboratoire d'Acou
stique de l'Université du Maine (
http://laum.univ
-

).

Specific
tasks

In the
recently

formed

”Flow con
trol and aeroa
coustics group
” at the institute for
aerody
na
-
mics

and fluid mechanics a

position for a
doctoral
student

in
the

field of comp
utation
a
l aero
-
acoustics is
vacant
.

T
he

r
esearch s
hall focus on the

numerical investigation of the

perfor
-
mance

of large scale splitter atte
nuators (dissipative silencers), including
the identification of

(self)
-
noi
se sources
for different
geometries

of the splitters an
d inlet and outlet manifolds

and
the
assessme
nt of the

role of flow conditions (inflow
magnitude,
profile

shape

and turbulence
level) on the
sound propagation and attenuation.
Methods
include
unsteady, three
-
dime
n
-
sional

CFD
approaches

(
LES)

for the
prediction

of flow and
identification of the
aerody
na
-
mical
noise source
s
as well as
appropriate
tools for
modeling of
the
sound propagation,

scattering

and attenuation.

Required background

A master's degree or diploma in engineering or applied mathematics / physics is required.
Experience in fluid dyn
amics

or
acoustics or
numerical simulation
techniques
is
desirable.
