We are looking for an enthusiastic Visiting Researcher (intern) to work with us on the physical modelling of tsunami under a European funded project URBANWAVES. HR Wallingford has already created two world-leading Tsunami Simulators, being used to test wave run-up / inundation, and tsunami loadings on coastal defences and / or buildings.
The internship would be initially for 6 months, with an option to extend to one year. URBANWAVES is a joint project between University College London (UCL) and HR Wallingford to improve our understanding of tsunami, particularly run-up, the impact on coastal defences and on coastal developments. The visiting researcher would help finalise the design of a 3rd generation Tsunami Simulator, and to support its construction in HR Wallingford’s Fast Flow Facility. They would then be involved in commissioning the simulator, supporting UCL in their experiments and in comparing the performance achieved with existing numerical models used in the design phase.
The successful applicant will be studying engineering, have good knowledge of fluid mechanics and structures, laboratory work, and understand the requirements of Quality Assurance in experimental design and testing. Training and safety equipment will be supplied. The internship will allow the Visiting Researcher to acquire significant experience in a world-leading hydraulics laboratory.
CFD modelling of fluid structure interaction
We are looking for an enthusiastic Visiting Researcher (intern) to support the development of HR Wallingford CFD capability for modelling engineering applications. HR Wallingford aims to develop and test a selection of numerical models including open-source and in-house developed codes, for modelling realistic scenarios of fully coupled fluid / structure interaction and floating bodies.
The internship would be initially for 6 months, with an option to extend to one year. The visiting researcher will be involved in the development, testing and validation the CFD capabilities against validation cases available through literature and / or through past physical modelling in our facilities. They would then be involved in versioning and publishing the new developments in our software repositories and producing report and / or scientific publications in investigating the performance of the CFD codes against realistic scenarios.
The successful applicant will be studying engineering, and will have knowledge programming in FORTRAN and / or C++. Past experience in using CFD models for simulating fluid / structure interaction will be an advantage. The internship will allow the Visiting Researcher to acquire significant experience in developing and using CFD models for engineering applications, in a world-leading hydraulics laboratory.
PROTEUS CFD model development
We are looking for an enthusiastic Visiting Researcher (intern) to work with us on developing the open-source software PROTEUS, a CFD toolkit for rapidly developing computer models and numerical methods.
The internship would be initially for 6 months, with an option to extend to one year. The candidate will work under a collaboration project co-sponsored by Engineering Research and Development Centre (ERDC) and HR Wallingford that aims to improve available computational tools for complex flow processes encountered in the estuarine, coastal and maritime environment. The visiting researcher will support the development of the PROTEUS wave tank module for advanced wave generation such as random waves with nonlinear corrections. The candidate is also expected to publish the developments in an open-source repository and be an active member of an international team of developers.
The successful candidate will have experience in Python or similar object oriented programming language and knowledge of fluid mechanics and water wave theory. Past experience in CFD modelling will be also an advantage. The internship will allow the Visiting Researcher to acquire significant experience as a CFD model developer and a contributor to a large-scale open-source software project.Επιστροφή
