Natural Ventilation : Experiments and modelling of turbulent mixing in buoyancy driven flows
Over the past few years there has been tremendous progress in understanding the dynamics of turbulent buoyancy driven flows through a combination of experimental and theoretical modelling. This work is now poised to enable major advances in our understanding of air mixing and circulation in buildings and to model the transport of contaminants/infection within a building. Such work is also of key importance for understanding low energy design of buildings.
Applicants will ideally have a good undergraduate degree in engineering, mathematics or physics.
