Open PhD Positions

Computational Simulations of Turbulent Reacting Flows (TV-L 13 Vollzeit)

  • Development of in-house codes (CIAO, FlameMaster) for high-fidelity predictive simulations;
  • DNS of turbulent fields and consequent theoretical investigation for the development of closure models of turbulence;
  • DNS of combustion instabilities and theoretical characterization;
  • DNS and LES of multiphase flows for the investigation, characterization and modeling of the mechanisms driving the breakup and evaporation phenomena;
  • Soot modeling;
  • Machine learning: development of physics guided neural networks;
  • Machine learning: use of artificial neural network as model into predictive simulations;
  • Simulation of combustion systems (e.g. internal combustion engines, nano-particle synthesis burner, heating devices)
