(10) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral student in Computational Fluid Mechanics

Turbulent flow has a major impact in many areas of engineering, not least in terms of frictional resistance to vehicles or the efficiency of turbomachines. In the project, we look at how the flow on surfaces such as wings or turbine blades is affected by incoming turbulence, so-called free-stream turbulence. We use large simulations on the best supercomputers as a numerical wind tunnel to investigate how the turbulence affects the flow on the surface, and analyze the large amounts of data produced via modern analysis methods. Among other methods we use dynamical systems to understand the complexities in the simulated flows. The results provide a detailed understanding of the process how the flow on the surface changes from laminar to turbulent flow and how it can be modeled, something that has a direct application to the design of environmentally friendly aircraft with less fuel consumption and more efficient turbo engines. The doctoral student will work in a research group within the successful research environment FLOW at the Department of Engineering Mechanics with Professor Dan Henningson as supervisor. The work will take place in collaboration with some of the best research groups worldwide in the field and also provide opportunities for longer stays abroad in connection with such collaborations. Within the research group there are collaborations with industrial partners that are related to the project.

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral student in simulations of wetting of complex fluids droplets

Viscoelastic fluids flow through porous media is crucial for natural and industrial processes: medical filtration such as face masks (mucus), cleaning of contaminated surfaces, recovery of groundwater, oil and materials in geologically challenging locatilocations, CO2 sequestration for climate change, pharmaceutical technologies and human body tissues. These complex fluids flow in a very different way to Newtonian fluids such as water. Transport in porous media is dramatically affected by flow instabilities in microscale, improving mixing and propagation; yet, instabilities of complex fluids remain a challenge. This proposal will result in completely new understanding of viscoelastic fluids flow through porous media by fluid flow simulations using high-fidelity computation methods recently developed by the group. We aim to: i) reveal unique new insight of the transport and instabilities of complex fluids through porous media, and ii) develop novel analysis tools, and couplings between micro- and macrostructure, to enable controlled design of the process.

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral student in modelling and characterization of bearing steel

The current project is within a newly started collaboration between SKF and Materials Science and Engineering and Solid Mechanics at KTH. You will be working in an international research environment, in collaboration with female and male experts in theoretical, computational and experimental studies of materials. Your project will be on rolling bearing steels that require excellent resistance to wear and rolling contact fatigue. This is usually achieved with a martensitic microstructure with residual austenite and carbides where performance can be improved by controlling the amount of austenite and its stability. This project aims to predict this stability and how it is affected by composition, heat treatment and applied load. This will be done through a multi-scale modeling approach involving: thermodynamic models, crystal plasticity models and finite element analyses but also experimental characterization. These models will finally be used to design rolling bearing steels with improved properties, which in turn have a positive environmental impact during use and production.

About KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden – Official Website

KTH Royal Institute of Technology, abbreviated KTH, is a public research university in Stockholm, Sweden. KTH conducts research and education within engineering and technology, and is Sweden’s largest technical university. Currently, KTH consists of five schools with four campuses in and around Stockholm.

KTH was established in 1827 as Teknologiska Institutet (Institute of Technology), and had its roots in Mekaniska skolan (School of Mechanics) that was established in 1798 in Stockholm. But the origin of KTH dates back to the predecessor to Mekaniska skolan, the Laboratorium Mechanicum, which was established in 1697 by Swedish scientist and innovator Christopher Polhem. Laboratorium Mechanicum combined education technology, a laboratory and an exhibition space for innovations. In 1877 KTH received its current name, Kungliga Tekniska högskolan (KTH Royal Institute of Technology). The King of Sweden Carl XVI Gustaf is the High Protector of KTH.

KTH is the highest ranked technical university in Sweden. It is ranked top 100 in the world among all universities in the 2020 QS World University Rankings.
