Fluid mechanics phD position at HydEE team

[TheChamp-Sharing]
Numerical modelling of fluid/structure interaction in the porous layer.

The performance of many industrial applications is largely based on the quality and reliability of the guidance and support systems (high rotational speeds, low friction torque, damping capability, etc.). The subject of the Phd thesis presented here is part of a ANR (Agency National Research) french project, entitled SOFITT (Saturated Open-pore Foams for Innovative Tribology in Turbomachinery) and aiming at finding innovative technical solutions that break with current practices and provide high-performance support systems in terms of load capacity and damping. The project proposes a new concept of lubrication and correspondingly a new material (understood as a complex/composite material formed by the solid porous structure – compressible porous layers – and the imbibing fluid) in order to improve the quality and reliability of the guidance and supporting systems. The CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) simulations offer an economical solution to study the performance of this new concept of lubrication. During the Phd thesis, two predictive models will be developed to study the response to external stresses of liquid-soaked compressible materials, in particular by estimating their load and damping capacities.

Instability development at the interface of viscous heterocharged fluids

The proposed studies will relate to a low Reynolds laminar flow of a two-dimensional mixture layer of a highly viscous dielectric fluid. The fluid / fluid interface will be studied experimentally under different conditions. This subject is part of action 5.1 of the INTERACTIVES labex, action which concerns the manipulation of internal flow by electrical discharge and charge injection.
