PhD studentship at University of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy.

The aim of the project is to develop of new class of SPH solver base on high order Riemann solver able to simulate turbulent fluid flows in nozzle injectors and turbines. The algorithm will be developed in the framework of the estabilished opensource project DualSPHysics (dual.sphysics.org).
The research will be jointly supervised by the research group coordinated by Prof. Maurizio Righetti (University of Bozen-Bolzano) and Dr. Renato Vacondio (University of Parma).

The numerical scheme will be validated by means of laboratory measurements performed by the TFD laboratory group of the University of Bozen in the Laboratory for industrial Thermo-Fluid Dynamics applications.
In order to gain admission to the PhD programme, you'll need to have obtained 300 ECTS credits (Equivalent to Master degree) and have some relevant academic or cultural background or work experience in the field of the PhD programme. In particular, knowledge on computational fluid dynamics as well as a good level in scientific programming will be considered as an advantage, but not mandatory. The candidate has also to demonstrate competence in the English language. (see https://www.unibz.it/en/faculties/sciencetechnology/phd-sustainable-ener...).

The PhD includes training in the field of sustainable use of resources in the production systems of energy, of buildings, in energy final utilisation, in the development of products and in manufacturing.

Informal inquiries can be made to: Dr. Diego Avesani (diego.avesani@unibz.it) until 8 July.
You can apply by 9 July 2018 in our application portal.
The studentship is funded with a salary of about €17,000 per year for three years, plus mobility.
