Dr James Tyacke
Lecturer in Aerospace Engineering (Aerodynamics)

Summary

As 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 advertising an EPSRC funded Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) PhD studentship for “Noise reduction of Urban Air Mobility Vehicles using CFD”, starting 1st October 2021.  Please contact me for further details. Application instructions here: Noise reduction of Urban Air Mobility Vehicles using CFD

Deadline 12:00 Noon, Friday 11th June 2021.

I am currently looking for students to complete a PhD under EPSRC DTP funding at Brunel University London or those who are self-funded.  A range of projects are available, focusing on multi-fidelity Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).  Potential application areas are electronics cooling, aerospace, turbomachinery, aeroacoustics and urban flows, among others.  Further interests include increasing CFD automation, including mesh generation and optimisation, solution analysis and feedback into knowledge-based systems using Machine Learning and AI.
