With this PhD studentship in the topic of Experimental Aerodynamics and Environmental Flows, you will have the opportunity to work with our world-renowned experimental fluid mechanics research group. If you work in the experimental fluid mechanics research laboratory, you will join a group of highly driven researchers whose efforts are geared toward applying cutting-edge diagnostics to better understand the physics of turbulent flows. We are a member of the National Wind Tunnel Facility of the United Kingdom, and we have multiple wind tunnels and water channels on our campus for the study of experimental fluid mechanics (see www.southampton.ac.uk/windtunnels/ for more information on this).

The goal of this research project is to use unique laboratory approaches to replicate environmental wind patterns and air pollution in the vicinity of structures. As part of this project, you will be involved in the design and fabrication of a bespoke building model for windtunnel and watertunnel testing. If you want to undertake measurements of the flow confronting and entering the building, you will be trained in laser-diagnostic technologies such as Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) and Planar Laser-Induced Fluorescence (PLIF). As a result of these experiments, cutting-edge measurements will be available for the analysis of the aerodynamic processes that link outside and indoor air quality.

Southampton is a thriving and bustling city located 80 minutes from central London. It’s a welcoming, safe, and walkable city that’s abundant in parks and green spaces. In addition to being located on the English south coast, Southampton also has one of the hottest climates in the United Kingdom. In a survey conducted by Big 7 Travel in 2019, Southampton was ranked as the 10th friendliest city in the United Kingdom (*The 50 Friendliest Cities in the United Kingdom, Big 7 Travel, 2019). Try new things, meet new people, and discover your new city by joining one of the more than 300 clubs and societies available. Student arrivals at the University of Southampton in January and September are welcomed with a meet and greet service that includes a free pick-up from Heathrow and Gatwick airports, as well as speeches by faculty members and events held before and throughout the first few weeks of classes. As addition as many social and welfare networks, there is an international student support service and an English language training section that are specifically for international students. Following the publication of the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, Southampton University was ranked eighth in the United Kingdom for research intensity and eleventh in the United Kingdom for both the volume and quality of research conducted. Over 97 percent of the research conducted at the University of Southampton was deemed to be “world-leading” or “internationally good.” Accommodation at University Halls of Residence is guaranteed for all international students throughout the duration of their studies at the university. There are 20 Halls of Residence in Southampton and Winchester, with a total population of approximately 3,000 students.
