  • Novel and efficient algorithms for immersed moving structures in realistic industrial conditions in aeronautics using lattice Boltzmann method

    Domain : computational fluid dynamics, aeronautics, fluid structure interactions

    Project : Advanced Lattice-Boltzmann Understandings for Multiphysics Simulations (ALBUMS) funded by Airbus, Safran, Renault and the French National Research Agency (ANR)

    Although the motion of immersed solids in rotation is relatively well captured by available numerical codes based on Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM), the reliable simulation of immersed structures approaching each other, or immersed structures in motion in the vicinity of a fixed wall, still remain an open issue for industrial applications. The objective of the work is to develop novel and efficient algorithms to tackle these configurations involving complex fluid/solid interfaces with contact, and mesh adaption in the LBM framework, including rigid and deformable objects.

    Expected profile of the candidate
    The candidate will have a PhD in computational fluid dynamics. The numerical developments required in the PhD will involve team-working skills to interact frequently with other students working on the same numerical code, software engineers, associated industrials and supervisors.

    How to apply
    Send an application to: and including:
    - A detailed CV
    - A cover letter

    Starting date: From April 2021, or earlier
    Deadline to apply: 10/05/2021
  • 2 Postdocs on LBM : 1 postdoc on "multicomponent compressible flows" & 1 postdoc on "combustion"

    Topic : Lattice Boltzmann Lattice-Boltzmann methods

    Background, Context :
    The industry relies increasingly on numerical simulation for designing, improving, and even validating new combustion devices (engine, burner, furnace, etc.). Today, numerical combustion modelling relies almost exclusively on numerical codes solving the Navier-Stokes equations. 
    The Lattice Boltzmann solvers are very different from these codes, intending to solve a discrete variant of the Boltzmann equation. This type of flow solver is progressing rapidly, however, in turbulent flows configurations. The results obtained with Lattice Boltzmann methods (LBM) have shown to be excellent for aerodynamic applications, motivating intensive development of new methods.
    Lattice Boltzmann methods applied to industrial applications are recent, however, and few models are able to deal with multiphase flows, and almost none with reactive (combusting) flows. 
    The development of combustion modelling within the LBM framework is the topic of this study, following our recent works. 

    Research subject, work plan :
    Extending the LBM capabilities to combustion requires a profound rethinking of existing methods developed within the Navier-Stokes framework. 
    The team has recently made important steps in proving the LBM ability to tackle such flows, at a cost significantly reduced compared to classical results, on relatively simple configurations.

    Two positions are available (all on LBM): 

    - 1 postdoc on multicomponent compressible flows

    - 1 postdoc on combustion

    Contracts : 1 year for postdoc, renewable for a 2nd year / Salaries depending on experience, according to Aix-Marseille University standards. 

    Essential skills : Strong background in scientific computing (c++ preferred), compressible flows, reactive and/or multiphase flows. English.
    Desired skills : LBM, HPC, French.

    Application : Email CV, cover letter to

    Intended Start date: In 2021, negotiable depending on profile.
