Project: BALBUZARD (Building Advanced Lattice- Boltzmann multiphysics solver towards Zero-emissions Aircraft Research and Development) funded by DGAC
Although the motion of immersed solids in rotation is relatively well captured by available numerical codes based on Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM), the reliable simulation of fully coupled fluid-structure interaction in realistic conditions still remain an open issue for industrial applications in aeronautics. The objective of the work is to develop novel and efficient algorithms to tackle these configurations involving complex fluid/solid interfaces with contact, and mesh adaption in the LBM framework, including rigid objects in arbitrary motion and deformable objects. The overset and immersed boundary methods, already developed at M2P2 lab, will be compared on test cases of increasing complexity, from incompressible to compressible regimes, and novel hybrid methods will be proposed to increase accuracy and robustness of actual methods.
Expected profile of the candidate
The candidate will have a PhD in computational fluid dynamics. The numerical developments required in the PhD will involve team-working skills to interact frequently with other students working on the same numerical code, software engineers, associated industrials and supervisors.
