Applications from qualified applicants are being sought under the Fully Funded Research Scholarships at Swansea University in Wales, UK, for the academic year 2022–2023. Applications for this program are accepted by international students. The scholarship enables study at Swansea University’s Research level engineering program(s).
Swansea University provided the funding.
Joining Swansea University’s Zienkiewicz Centre for Computational Engineering (ZCCE), known for its groundbreaking work in computational modeling and engineering applications, is an exciting opportunity. In the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2021, the research environment at the Faculty of Science & Engineering was judged to be over 93% world-leading or internationally good. The project’s objective is to give PhD students a top-notch, demanding research education through mutually beneficial research collaboration.

The aerospace industry has picked hydrogen as the fuel for propulsion as the way to achieve its goal of zero emissions. The most practical choice is thought to be the use of cryogenic hydrogen. The steady combustion of cryogenic hydrogens is complicated technically by issues including flashback and flame instability. In order to assist the difficult and expensive experimental research, which is underpinned by complicated physics involving cryogenic jets, high heat and mass transfer, phase change, multiphase flow, ignition, and flame, it is urgently necessary to build strong and trustworthy forecasting tools.
The project’s goals are to create state-of-the-art modeling methods based on the current internal high-fidelity simulation code for the multiphase reactive flow of cryogenic hydrogen and to gather data from numerical simulations that can be used to analyze physicochemical processes in order to learn more about this relatively new scientific field. Under proper operating conditions, methods for hydrogen injection, efficient mixing, and stable functioning will be devised. The goal of the study is to develop a theoretical framework for the hydrogen combustion system’s operating principles.
The person filling the position will develop skills in the following areas: computational fluid mechanics using cutting-edge numerical model and simulation techniques; theory of cryogenic flow, multiphase flow, turbulent combustion, and analytical techniques; development and use of high-fidelity numerical modeling; and a path to net-zero aviation.
• participating in interdisciplinary teams.
The chosen candidate will also be required to present their research at significant international conferences and to submit articles to prestigious journals.
The total cost of tuition costs and a £16,062 stipend are covered by this scholarship.
Added research costs will also be covered.
Candidates must typically possess an undergraduate degree in engineering or a closely related science discipline at the 2.1 level (or Swansea University’s definition of the non-UK equivalent). Country-specific Information for International Applicants in 2019 and Country-specific Information for European Applicants in 2019 are also available.
It would be ideal to have prior knowledge of combustion, computational fluid dynamics, and aerospace propulsion. Candidates with experience in mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering, or similar fields are invited to apply.
