Fluid dynamics sits at the centre of our lives. The weather we experience, the products we use, the food we eat, cars we drive, medical care we receive all depend on fluid dynamics.
The ability to measure, model and predict fluid flows is therefore critically important to the innovation of processes and products across almost all industries, and to the monitoring and prediction of environmental processes.
The Centre for Doctoral Training in Fluid Dynamics programme from the University of Leeds also benefits from membership of the Leeds Institute for Fluid Dynamics (LIFD), a cross-disciplinary research institute bringing together the expertise of over 200 researchers from 12 Schools in 4 Faculties at the University of Leeds. The institute provides a hub to facilitate world-leading research and education in fluid dynamics and to bring interdisciplinary perspectives to complex flow challenges.
The CDT is also recruiting directly to the following three industry projects:
- Modelling of complex multiphase solid-liquid flows within the nuclear industry
- Towards Net-Zero Emissions by 2050: From What (Fuels) to How (Burns)
- Ignitability, Quenching and Deflagration-to-Detonation-Transition of hydrogen-air mixtures
- 48 months
