"Openings for Ph.D. Studies in Turbulence, Mixing, and Control at the University of California, Irvine"

Openings for Ph.D. Studies in Turbulence, Mixing, and Control Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering University of California, Irvine.

The Turbulence, Mixing, and Control Group at the University of California, Irvine, (http://www.eng.uci.edu/~catrakis/turb.html) has openings for exceptional individuals interested in pursuing Ph.D. studies in the area of turbulent flows, mixing, and control.

The research emphasis is on fundamental and applications-oriented experimental, computational, and theoretical investigations of transport, mixing, and control in free-shear turbulent flows. The experiments employ advanced quantitative flow-visualization methods based on two-dimensional and three-dimensional digital imaging and laser diagnostic techniques. The computations utilize finite-volume and pseudo-spectral methods in a parallel-programming and multiprocessing environment. The theoretical investigations employ methods of advanced mathematics and physics to study turbulence, mixing, and control.

Strongly-recommended prerequisites are: good foundations in mathematics and physics; experience with experimental and/or computational and/or theoretical techniques in fluid dynamics. Experimental, computational, as well as theoretical projects are available. You are welcome to choose a research topic from the following list that matches your interests:

Experimental research:

  • Imaging of turbulence and mixing in a jet"
  • Imaging of turbulence and mixing in a shear layer"
  • Imaging of turbulence and mixing in a temporal shear layer"
  • Control of turbulence and mixing"

Computational research:

  • Simulation of turbulence and mixing in a spatially-developing jet"
  • Simulation of turbulence and mixing in a spatial shear layer"
  • Simulation of turbulence and mixing in a 2D and 3D temporal shear layer"
  • Simulation of turbulence and mixing control"

Theoretical research:

  • Geometry and dynamics of turbulence"
  • Mixing in vortical, random, and turbulent flows"
  • Pattern formation, flow instability, and turbulence"
  • Theory of turbulence and mixing control"

Interested applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a one-page statement of career interests/objectives, two sample publications or reports, and names of three references. The positions are open as of September 1, 1998, and are scheduled to start in the fall/winter 1998 or spring/summer 1999. Applications will be reviewed in the order received and should be addressed to:

Prof. Haris J. Catrakis
Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering
Engineering Gateway 4218
University of California, Irvine
Irvine, CA 92697-3975
