Bio-Engine Project – INSA de Rouen – CORIA UMR 6614
The proposed research is mainly focused on the development of modeling strategies to perform high-fidelity LES computations of transitional turbulent flows over complex geometries. At the core of these activities is the ongoing development of an MPI parallelized fortran 90 numerical solver for compressible flows based on the DFE method, namely, the high-order Spectral Difference (SD) scheme.
A 12 months postdoctoral appointment will be available starting early 2017 and the relevant envisaged activities will be : • perform reference LES computations of transitional BLs ; • develop advanced hybrid RANS-LES modeling strategies to handle transitional turbulence ; • extensively validate the developed modeling strategies.
The candidate should hold a PhD degree in Engineering (Aeronautical, Mechanical), Physics, Applied Mathematics or related fields and have a significant experience in the development and implementation of numerical algorithms for Computational Fluid Dynamics with particular emphasis on applications to LES over massively parallel environments. A good proficiency with the Fortran language is desired. Prior experience with DFE methods such as Nodal Discontinuous Galerkin, SD or Flux Reconstruction will be highly appreciated.
Location : CORIA Laboratory, Rouen, France
Duration : 12 months (starting early 2017)
