Domain: turbulent combustion, LBM
Project: Advanced Lattice-Boltzmann Modelling of Combustion Méthodes Avancées Lattice-Boltzmann En Combustion (MALBEC) funded by the French National Research Agency (ANR)
Lattice Boltzmann (LB) solvers are becoming an ever more attractive alternative to traditional Navier-Stokes solvers. Reactive flow modeling in the LB framework, however, remain relatively marginal within the scientific community: most Lattice-Boltzmann schemes are limited to athermal flows.
Based on recent developments at M2P2, simulating reacting flows now seem within our grasp. A significant research effort is however required to achieve this target on realistic flows, e.g. including multi-level grid capabilities, the derivation of novel boundary conditions, turbulence models.
Development of such methods within the field of combustion is the topic of this post-doctoral position.
Expected profile of the candidate
The candidate will have a PhD in computational fluid dynamics, with experience in either LBM or numerical combustion. The numerical developments required will involve team-working skills to interact frequently with other postdocs/PhD students working on the same code, software engineers, associated industrials and supervisors.
