PhD Studentship in Multiphase Flow Modelling

Applications are invited for research studentships in the field of Multiphase Computational Fluid Dynamics, leading to the award of a PhD degree. The post is supported by a bursary and fees (at the UK/EU student rate) from an industrial sponsor. Candidates should therefore fulfil the eligibility criteria for this Award. Please check your suitability at the following web site:

The following areas will be covered:

  • Large-scale predictions of turbulent gas-solid flows
  • Computational model development for liquid sprays and films
  • Investigation of expansion cooling in a throttled flow.

The project will focus on model and software development together with our existing team of students and post-docs and within our available in-house codes ( The project will be performed in collaboration with experimental investigators and have strong industrial support.

You will be an enthusiastic and self-motivated person who meets the academic requirements for enrolment for the PhD degree at Imperial College London. You should have a background in Engineering, Mathematics or Physics, be highly motivated to pursue research and have a strong interest in computational and numerical methods. Appropriate training will be provided in the modelling approaches involved and in programming techniques. You will become a skilled communicator who is comfortable in an international situation.  Good team-working, observational and communication skills are essential.
