The Laboratory of Fluid Mechanics and Acoustics (CNRS, Ecole Centrale de Lyon) is seeking a highly qualified candidate for a post-doctoral research fellowship regarding the development of synthetic turbulent inflow conditions for high-fidelity Lattice Boltzmann simulations. Such methods have been developed in the context of NavierStokes approaches at the laboratory. The objective is here to adapt and extend those methods in the context of LBM, with a particular attention paid to the generation of noise.
The successful candidate will be in charge of the development and implementation of turbulent inflow conditions in an in-house LB code (written in C++). Validations and evaluations will be carried-out on cases of increasing complexity: isolated boundary layer, compressor cascade and a fan configuration.
