Dr James Tyacke
Lecturer in Aerospace Engineering (Aerodynamics)


I am currently a Lecturer in Aerospace Engineering. I am primarily interested in Large Eddy Simulation (LES) of complex flows including Jet Aeroacoustics, Turbomachinery and Electronics Cooling. Multi-fidelity modelling underpins these areas, both in terms of turbulence modelling and geometry representation. Modern High Performance Computing (HPC) architectures are also being leveraged for both simulation and analysis of large data sets (Big Data), revealing unsteady flow physics.

I am currently looking for a student to complete a PhD under EPSRC DTP funding at Brunel University London. A range of projects are available, focusing on multi-fidelity Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). Potential application areas are electronics cooling, aerospace, aeroacoustics or urban flows among others. Further details can be found here: .
