    The Laboratory of Fluid Mechanics and Acoustics (CNRS, Ecole Centrale de Lyon) is seeking a highly qualified candidate for a post-doctoral research fellowship regarding the development of synthetic turbulent inflow conditions for high-fidelity Lattice Boltzmann simulations. Such methods have been developed in the context of NavierStokes approaches at the laboratory. The objective is here to adapt and extend those methods in the context of LBM, with a particular attention paid to the generation of noise.The successful candidate will be in charge of the development and implementation of turbulent inflow conditions in an in-house LB code (written in C++). Validations and evaluations will be carried-out on cases of increasing complexity: isolated boundary layer, compressor cascade and a fan configuration.

    Le projet de R&D SLITHER (financement région AURA) s’inscrit dans une problématique persistante en maintenance aéronautique : le décapage automatisé complet des aéronefs. Aujourd’hui, le décapage des surfaces des aéronefs n’est toujours pas pleinement automatisable du fait de l’impossibilité de gérer la variabilité des couches de peinture, des formes des appareils et de la difficulté d’accès à certaines zones en environnement complexe, en particulier dans les ailes des avions.

    The postdoc position is offered within Team CaliSto at Inria Sophia Antipolis Méditerranée. The team is working on the stochastic modeling applied to single-phase and multiphase flows through complex stochastic differential equations. This is done in collaborations with researchers that share interest in environmental applications (including meteorologists, hydro-physicists, physicists specialized in turbulence and two-phase flows modeling).

    The aim of the present project is to develop an efficient solid wall treatment for LBM, including turbulent wall models. Several issues will be addressed, among which:• interpolation methods used within the Immersed-Boundary Method (IBM) or Cartesian meshes framework for solid boundary treatment [1-2]• use of a turbulent wall model in conjunction with immersed solid boundaries [3]• reconstruction of the density distribution functions of LBM at boundaries nodeswithin this framework (accuracy, mass conservation, ...)• reconstruction of macroscopic quantities on the solid surface for post-processing purposes (eg. calculation of aerodynamic forces applied on an airfoil)• extension to moving/deforming solid boundaries

    This thesis will focus on internal tidal waves (at diurnal and semi-diurnal frequencies), and may further extend to other type of ocean internal wave (e.g. near-inertial waves).

    We invite doctoral students to apply for a post-doctoral fellowship from the Institute of Mechanics and Engineering of Aix Marseille University (1 year, from October 2021 to October 2022).

    When a heavy fluid is superimposed on a light fluid, the effect of gravity results in a so-called Rayleigh- Taylor instability which tends to bring the former below the latter. This instability has been extensively studied in inertia-dominated regimes and in the absence of a lateral confinement. Here we are interested in the case where viscous effects are dominant and fluids are confined inside a vertical or inclined cylindrical tube.

    The prediction of preferential orientation of anisotropic particles in turbulent flows is of importance because of the many implications it can bear for industrial and environmental applications. In this project, we aim at performing both experimental and numerical investigations on the orientation and rotation rate of the non-axisymmetric fibers in free surface turbulent flow. The outcome of this study will direct impact on several applications such as micro-fiber pollution and papermaking. The aim is to investigate the dynamics of non-axisymmetric fibers in free surface channel flow. Fibres orientation, rotation rate, tumbling, and spinning will be analyzed, in different geometrical zones of the open channel flow. The shape of the fibers and flow boundary conditions is chosen to match environmental flow conditions, such as transport of microfibers.

    The main objective of this project is to establish on a robust scientific basis the existence of tipping points due to nonlinear feedbacks in the atmospheric circulation. This is a key question, because of the role of the atmosphere in the global climate through the transport of momentum, energy and water vapor across latitudes, but also because it acts as a forcing for other components of the climate system, such as the ocean and vegetation. The project focuses on the circulation of the tropical atmosphere, which has the potential for large-scale reorganization and could affect climate worldwide through its coupling with the tropical ocean.

    The objective of the present project is to develop a numerical tool for compressible flows, by use of unstructured meshes and the finite-element package FEniCS. This code will then be used to identify near-field fluctuations that optimally radiate sound, both in subsonic jets and in the flow around an airfoil. The study program is based on theoretical concepts from linear instability analysis and from aeroacoustics.

    In atmospheric clouds, in industrial power plants, and in the pandemic we have been living, a crucial element is the interaction of small particles with the turbulent flow that carries them. Will two ice crystals collide and aggregate to form a snowflake? Will an ocean wave break and splash droplets in the atmosphere? How far will a drop of saliva travel in air? Particle-laden turbulent flows are ubiquitous and extremely challenging to predict: the chaotic motion of the fluid is intertwined with the particles’ ability to exchange momentum and energy at the microscopic scale, while also altering the flow globally.

    Melting, dissolving, and erosion are processes that are frequently found in nature and technology. Contrary to common believe these three processes do not always smooth the surface, but rather form structures and sometimes even sharpen the surface. This leeds to the formation of e.g. ice scallops and pinnacles, for some examples of patterning and roughening. The continuously changing shape of e.g. a melting iceberg and its interaction with the external turbulence is very complicated as it involves three boundary layers: kinetic, thermal, and solutal (due to the salt concentration). The interaction between those boundary layers is highly complex and not understood. In particular, what is the effect of the surface roughness on the melting rate? The aim is to study the interaction of these boundary layers in a controlled lab environment such as to increase our understanding of these phenomena and their relevance on e.g. the melting rate of ice of icebergs and (tidal) glaciers, all important in view of global war

    Dans le contexte de changement climatique, il est parfois difficile de distinguer les influences anthropiques, de la variabilité naturelle, tant celle-ci est complexe et pourtant si importante qu’elle peut masquer les effets des activités humaines sur le climat. C’est notamment le cas pour la variabilité de la circulation atmosphérique, que les modèles numériques actuels ne reproduisent pas correctement. L’une des raisons est l’impossibilité pour ces modèles de simuler les processus physiques sur l’ensemble des échelles spatio-temporelles où elles se produisent et notamment comment différents processus à différentes échelles interagissent. Le but de la thèse est de comprendre le lien entre les grandes échelles spatio-temporelles des mouvements cohérents de l’atmosphère et les statistiques à l'échelle régionale des différents champs turbulents (vitesse, température, humidité, précipitations), et notamment les événements rares ou extrêmes.

    The candidate will perform experiments on density-driven convection which is of central importance for CO2 storage. When CO2 is dissolved in water, it forms carbonic acid, resulting in a slight increase in density and a change in acidity (pH). The purpose of the project entitled Gravitational instabilities during water-CO2 flows in fractures, is to investigate the convective mechanics of CO2 dissolved in water in model porous media and fractures and estimate the pH field using a pH analysis methods developed by PoreLab. Along with flow experiments on 3D printed fractures and porous models, the candidate may develop numerical models that can simulate density-driven convection.
