Master Thesis Proposal - Computational Fluid Dynamics at Kamstrup

Are you considering writing your master thesis on computational fluid dynamics? Do you want to learn more about the industrial applications of the physics of fluids in collaboration with a company? Are you ready to conduct your own research project focusing on the development of automated analysis methods by Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)?

Industrial application of Computational Fluid Dynamics
The opportunity
We are offering the opportunity to drive your own research project, which will cover aspects such as identification of the targets, development of an investigation plan, performing of tests (experimental or numerical, in principle using the tools available at Kamstrup), post-processing of the results obtained and presentation of the findings in a scientific paper/report. The report might be considered for publication in a peer-reviewed journal.

Field of Interests: Physics/Engineering
We are looking for a master student who is motivated to push the boundaries of knowledge and technology in a rapidly evolving company. You are studying a master’s degree in engineering, physics or similar, and have a good theoretical background in fluid mechanics. Prior knowledge of OpenFOAM and coding/scripting in bash and python are an asset. The final specifications for the project will be agreed on based on your interest, Kamstrup’s needs and requirements from the supervising professor.

Possible research fields are:

  • Analysis and implementation of topology optimization techniques in flow-based problems using CFD
  • Implementation of ultrasound propagation models into existing CFD simulation tools
  • Numerical-experimental comparison and improvement of current CFD simulations with Laser Doppler Velocimetry (LDV) or Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV)
  • Development and improvement of uncertainty quantification models into existing CFD simulations

We offer more than just a project

  • Office space
  • Mentorship from a passionate Kamstrup industry expert
  • Tap into ”real world” industrial application
  • Access to international industry network, customer/ supplier/partner relevant to your project
