TitlePostdoc in numerical modelling of cavitation in hydroturbines
CategoryPostDoc Position
EmployerChalmers University of Technology, Dept. Mechanics and Maritime
LocationSweden, Gothenburg
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateSunday, August 30, 2020
The post-doc will develop and evaluate numerical methods for cavitation modelling 
in hydropower for a renewable electric energy system, combining experience in 
cavitation at the division of Marine Technology and in hydropower at the division 
of Fluid dynamics, within the department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences at 
Chalmers. The research involves determining the conditions under which cavitation 
will occur and affect the turbine, and then develop suitable high-fidelity CFD 
models and analyse the impact of cavitation on the performance and dynamics. The 
methods developed and studies performed thus need to consider multiphase 
turbulent flows, possibly involving compressible effects, in a running 

The project further connects the research performed in the two research centres, 
SVC (Svenskt Vattenkraft Centrum), supporting the Swedish hydropower industry, 
and the Kongsberg UTC (University Technology Centre) in computational 
hydrodynamics, supporting the marine propulsion sector within Kongsberg.
