Description:
Industry co-funded EPSRC PhD Studentship in Biomedical Engineering(Biofluid Mechanics)

Title: A computational fluid dynamics (CFD) investigation of endovascular aortic arch stent graft designs in 
relation to post-operative thrombus formation 

Project summary
An exciting opportunity for a fully-funded 42-month PhD studentship co-funded by a world-leading medical 
devices company and EPSRC is available at the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of 
Strathclyde. The successful candidate will work closely with a multidisciplinary team of senior academics and 
industry collaborators to investigate endovascular aortic arch stent graft designs in relation to post-operative 
in-graft thrombus formation in the repaired aorta.

This project will study the haemodynamics of aortae prior to and following endovascular repair and the 
conditions that may lead to post-operative thrombus formation. The work will include optimisation of vascular 
prosthesis designs to enable the best-possible flow characteristics within the grafts, including post-surgical 
vascular perfusion results. This investigation could further be used to understand patient-specific anatomical 
geometry and graft design effects and aid in patient selection/risk-benefit analysis for more effective

► PhD Position Computational Fluid Dynamics of Microplastics , Delft University of Technology
   14 Jun, 2024 
Job Record #19230
TitlePhD Position Computational Fluid Dynamics of Microplastics
CategoryPhD Studentship

Description:
Fluid dynamics of microplastics: fiber-flow interaction simulations to reduce 
plastic microfiber pollutant release 

Job description

Increasing scientific evidence and public awareness of risks from micro-plastics 
mean that new technologies are urgently needed to limit micro-plastics release 
in the aquatic environment. A large contribution to micro-plastics pollution 
comes from microfibers released from clothes in our washing machines, which 
cannot be completely filtered with current methods. We are working with an 
industrial partner to find a solution to the problem.

In this project, the PhD researcher will develop high-resolution simulations to 
investigate numerically the interaction of model fibers with the complex 
geometry of mesh-based filters.  The simulations will initially focus on single 
fibers interacting with curved solid walls. The simulations will be carried out 
with an immersed boundary method, using an appropriate "slender body" 
approximation for the fibers. Later the PhD student will investigate many 
fibers, assessing the effects of spontaneous fiber curvature, flexibility and 
multi-fiber interactions. Part of the project is also the development of 
analytical one-dimensional filtration models that take into account poly-
dispersity in fiber length and stiffness. The research group in which the PhD 
will work has developed codes for flexible particles (Salussolia, G., et al. 
"Simulation of interacting elastic sheets in shear flow: Insights into buckling, 
sliding, and reassembly of graphene nanosheets in sheared liquids." Physics of 
Fluids 34.5 (2022) and has almost 20 years of experience in the simulation of 
multiphase systems.

Developing the simulations will require a good understanding of fluid dynamics 
and numerical discretisation methods, so any prior research experience in these 
areas will be valuable. Furthermore, the PhD student will interact with other 
PhD students (also team members in the project) who will be carrying out 
experiments for validation, as well as with the industrial partner of the 
project. Therefore, the ability to communicate effectively and interact in a 
workgroup is highly valued. Most important is the student's motivation to use 
fluid dynamics knowledge to contribute solving an important societal challenge.

The preferred start date is September 2024.

The work will be carried out in the Process & Energy Department of TU Delft, 
within the research group of Dr. Lorenzo Botto. For information about Botto's 
research group and his scientific output, see 
https://bottogroup.wordpress.com/publications/. For information about the 
Process & Energy Department, see 
https://www.tudelft.nl/me/over/afdelingen/process-energy. The project is done in 
collaboration with Burak Eral, Process & Energy Department 
(https://erallab.com/index.php/burak-eral/) and Valeria Garbin, Chemical 
Engineering Department (https://www.tudelft.nl/tnw/over-

Description:
Description and Objectives of the Project: The flow separation may be confined 
by a small separation bubble in the case of air intakes. Because of this bubble, 
the separation zone will expand and block the flow path, resulting in an 
unplanned intake. It is therefore needed to study the separation zone in SWBLI 
with unsteadiness and predict the size of the separation bubble. In this 
project, the determination of the separation length of the SWBLI over a wide 
range of Mach numbers, such as supersonic and hypersonic regions, while 
considering the unsteadiness of the SWBLI, is attempted numerically. From the 
study of the effect of flow parameters on separation, a complete correlation to 
determine the separation length with flow parameters such as Reynolds number, 
Mach number, incident shock strength, etc. will be given at different Mach 
number regimes. It can predict the size of the separation bubble, which will be 
useful to the supersonic and hypersonic aircraft engineer when designing the air 
intakes.

subdomains called cells, which make up the mesh covering the domain. The process 
of creating this mesh, referred to as meshing, is one of the most critical steps 
in the CFD workflow, as the quality of the numerical solution (and sometimes 
even the ability of the CFD code to find a solution) can be very strongly 
dependent on the quality of the mesh. At the same time, the meshing process 
itself is complex and often involves considerable human time and expertise to 
accomplish. Automated meshing programmes (such as snappyHexMesh, sHM, from the 
OpenFOAM suite of CFD codes) have been developed, but these simply automate the 
construction of the mesh from a large number of input parameters; finding the 
correct inputs is still complex and (human-)time consuming. 

New developments in AI technologies present the potential to revolutionise the 
meshing process however. AI technologies such as Artificial Neural Networks 
(ANNs) are good at discovering and reproducing human expertise, and could be 
used to “learn” what makes a good mesh. Machine Learning (ML, a branch of AI) 
can be used to iteratively improve mesh quality, based on commonly used (and 
easy to evaluate) mesh quality metrics – essentially automating and improving on 
the typical ad hoc meshing and re-meshing cycle used by human CFD engineers. 
Finally, automated mesh generators such as sHM use text-based input files that 
can be reproduced by Large Language Models (LLMs) such as ChatGPT. This presents 
a completely new and disruptive methodology to create the input files for CFD 
simulation, using carefully honed query terms and re-trained LLMs. The aim of 
the proposed PhD project is to investigate all these aspects of AI applied to 
meshing, which represents a truly disruptive technology for this important 
engineering tool.

Closure DateMonday, July 15, 2024
Description:
Modelling Phase Transfer in Reacting Flows

Description
Research at the Institute for Combustion Technology at the University of Stuttgart focuses on theory and computation of turbulent multiphase flows. The key expertise of our work is the modelling of multiscale processes and the corresponding interactions between turbulence, chemistry and particle dynamics. Examples include specific combustion related issues like turbulent combustion, solid fuel combustion and pollutant formation but also nanoparticle flame synthesis, flash boiling and mixing in particle laden flows.
We have a current opening at ITV for a research assistant (Ph.D.) position in the area of stochastic modelling of spray flames. The project is motivated by the continued need for accurate predictions in energy conversion processes using liquid fuels. The challenges include novel burner design due to different combustion strategies and different properties of alternative fuels such as biofuels, e-fuels or ammonia. The latter will be needed for future carbon neutral or carbon free energy provision. Knowledge of the details of evaporation, liquid-gas phase interactions and subsequent combustion is, however, limited, especially in regions of high liquid fuel density. The current project shall use stochastic methods to predict the droplet combustion process in such multiphase environments with emphasis on the predictions of the mass and energy transfers between the phases and their effects on fuel conversion and pollutant formation.

Your tasks:
• Your tasks will focus on the simulation of spray combustion within different environments, ranging from rather dilute to dense sprays in canonical configurations and of laboratory flames. The phase transfer terms between the (real) liquid droplets and the stochastic particles representing the gas phase need to be assessed and strategies need to be devised that hold across all flow and flame regimes.
• You need to develop and implement the corresponding algorithms that can also be used on high performance computing platforms.
• You will analyze the simulation data with the aid of analytical models and machine learning methods. Especially the latter shall help you to identify the key quantities that serve as suitable coupling parameters.
• You will develop new models and closures for the statistical description of the relevant processes such that the models are transferable to applications of industrial interest.
• You will collaborate with partner groups predominantly in Germany and Australia, and all results shall be presented at national and international conferences.
• Dissemination of your results in international journals is expected.

Your profile
We expect an excellent Master degree in engineering or related disciplines. You have a solid background in fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, combustion and/or particle technology. You enjoy theory and model development and their numerical implementation. You will have experience in programming (C, C++ and possibly Python). Knowledge of OpenFOAM would be very beneficial.
You will be an enthusiastic and self-motivated person with a willingness to work closely with other team members. The Institute’s scientific language is English, but willingness to study German is expected.

We offer:
• The pay scale is according to TVL-E13 (> EUR 3000,-). The grade and therefore the final salary will depend on your relevant experience. The original appointment will be for one year. Upon successful completion of the first year, the employment can be extended for a minimum of two further years.
• We offer excellent potential for scientific development in the Institute for Combustion Technology (ITV) at the University of Stuttgart with state-of-the-art computer facilities and access to the University’s supercomputing centre.
The University of Stuttgart is one of the leading technically oriented universities in Germany with about 26.000 students and more than 5.000 staff. The Institute for Combustion Technology is part of the Faculty of Energy-, Process- and Bioengineering.

Description and Objectives of the Project: This research project deals with the development, analysis and
numerical simulation of mathematical models of magnetic targeting nano-drug delivery in pulmonary and 
arterial systems. Blood flow is treated as Newtonian in large arteries and non-Newtonian in small arteries, 
also a laminar fluid flow. Formulate the various shapes of geometries of diseased stenosis and discuss the 
influence of arterial permeability in the atherosclerosis regime. A fully developed physiological velocity 
profile is defined as the vascular inlet boundary condition. To overcome the incompleteness of vascular 
system, a proper pressure condition for the outlets is to be developed where a lumped mathematical 
model is derived to calculate the overall resistance at each outlet. Develop an advanced numerical method 
and algorithm to guide magnetic nano-drug delivery towards a specific targeted region in the arterial 
system. Apply computational fluid dynamics modelling to pulmonary vascular trees, Validate the numerical 
simulation results.
