TitleImproving multiphase flow meter performance by CFD modelling MS
CategoryMisc
EmployerCranfield University
LocationUnited Kingdom, Bedfordshire, Bedford
InternationalNo, only national applications will be considered
Closure DateSunday, September 27, 2020
Description:
The successful candidate will be active part of a challenging, cutting edge 
R&D project aiming at improving the measurement performance of the current 
wet gas flow meter. The candidate will numerically investigate multiphase 
phenomena in wet gas flow meter, identifying firstly the location where wet 
gas flow meter sensors will perform best, and secondly optimising the design 
of the current wet gas flow meter.


This Multiphase CFD-based project will require an understanding of 
multiphase & wet gas phenomena, flow regimes, and strong numerical and 
programming skills, along with expertise in design and meshing techniques to 
be applied for multiphase flows. Results will be compared to experimental 
data generated by Pietro Fiorentini, the sponsoring company.

The successful candidate will benefit from significant academic and 
industrial exposure with technical meetings and Pietro Fiorentini's regular 
engagement. He/she will have the opportunity to present his/her progress in 
front of experts in the field.
