Postdoc in Computational Fluid Dynamics with relevance to Turbochargers
KTH Royal Institute of Technology, School of Engineering Sciences
KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as in architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.
The School of Engineering Sciences carries out a wide range of research at the international front line, from fundamental disciplines such as physics and mathematics, to engineering mechanics with applications such as aeronautics and vehicle engineering. We also offer University degree programs in Engineering Physics, Vehicle Engineering, and 'Open Entrance', as well as a number of International Masters Programmes.
This project will be run within the Competence Center for Gas Exchange (CCGEx). CCGEx focuses on research regarding gas management in modern internal combustion engines. The overall aim is to make engines more efficient and environment-friendly thus to increase fuel efficiency without losing performance, lower emissions of hazardous substances and to manage sound generation and attenuation in the engine gas handling system. The research is based on extensive knowledge of fluid dynamics, turbocharging and combustion engine technology and includes both fundamental and applied experiments and simulations as well as development of methodology for such studies. The center is a combined effort between KTH, the Swedish Energy Agency, and leading organizations in automotive industry.
