CFD Modelling of Condensation from a Steam-Air Mixture Including Aerosol 
Transport and Deposition
The project will involve CFD modelling of condensation along with aerosol
transport in a steam-air mixture. A crucial part of the modelling will be 
aerosol deposition by thermophoresis and diffusiophoresis in the presence of 
strong condensation on a vertical surface. This modelling will be developed 
using commercial CFD code STAR CCM+.  Extensive use of parallel computing is 
planned, with access to a high-performance computing environment. Careful 
verification of the model components will be required, as well as validation 
the full model through comparisons with extensive experimental data to be made 
available exclusively to this project. The project will provide interaction 
experienced research scientists in the Canadian nuclear engineering industry. 
The work is to be carried out in the CFD Laboratory in the Department of 
Mechanical Engineering, University of Manitoba. The applicant may work 
virtually, depending on travel restrictions.

The successful candidate will produce required literature reviews and 
will take the lead role in developing and testing the new models, will work 
the industrial partner regarding the analysis and use of the experimental 
will document the results in summary technical reports journal article 
manuscripts, and will supervise research assistants.

The candidate must have a Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering and a strong 
background in CFD, aerosol transport, and advanced fluid mechanics and heat 
transfer. The candidate must also have demonstrated significant experience 
a commercial CFD code and in writing and publishing articles in peer-reviewed 
respected academic journals. The candidate is expected to be curious, highly 
motivated, passionate, and have the ability to work independently and adhere 
self-imposed deadlines. Excellent oral and written communication skills in 
English are essential. The following will be considered assets and give 
applicants higher priority: significant experience using STAR CCM+, experience 
modelling condensation, experience modelling aerosol transport.

All applicants are thanked in advance; only those selected for further 
consideration will receive a response. Review of applications will begin 
immediately and will continue until this position is filled.
