Fully-funded International PhD Scholarship at Coventry University in the UK 2023

Coventry University (CU) is looking for qualified graduates to apply for a fully-funded PhD studentship. The winner will be based in the Fluids and Complex Systems Research Center.

The goal of this project is to use the most recent advances in free-form adjoint optimization and additive manufacturing to improve the performance of solar collectors used for home heating. You will use adjoint methods in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to come up with new designs for solar collectors. You will then test and evaluate prototypes that have been made. During this project, we hope to come up with multi-objective-optimized designs that will be better than commercial solar heaters.
