Graduate Admissions

 

An Industrial CASE PhD studentship supported by GE Power is available, due to start in January 2018. The studentship is for a duration of four years and funding will cover all University fees plus the standard EPSRC maintenance allowance of £14,582 per year. In addition, the successful applicant will receive a top-up bursary from the industrial sponsor of approximately £3000 per annum.

The proposed project will involve the development and application of numerical models to predict condensing-flow effects in steam turbines and determine efficiency losses associated with various two-phase flow processes. The flow in the latter stages of such turbines is transonic and the effects of condensation heat release lead to a wealth of scientifically interesting and practically important phenomena. This is an excellent opportunity for students with an interest in fundamental fluid dynamics, compressible flow and/or the thermodynamics of phase change. Contact Dr Alex White at ajw36@cam.ac.uk for further details of the Project

Applicants must have UK home fee status and should have (or expect to obtain by the start date) at least a good 2.1 degree (and preferably a Masters degree) in an Engineering or a related subject.

Students from overseas are not eligible for this studentship and should not apply.

Applications should be submitted via the University of Cambridge Graduate Admissions web pages: http://www.admin.cam.ac.uk/students/gradadmissions/prospec/apply/, with Dr Alex White identified as the potential supervisor

The University values diversity and is committed to equality of opportunity.
