Dynamics of bubbles rising in viscoelastic fluids

In this project, you will learn about different methods for discretising partial differential equations and iterative methods for solving the resulting systems of algebraic equations.

You will also develop an understanding about the mathematical modelling of viscoelastic fluids. There will also be an element of scientific computing and you will develop programming skills using MATLAB, C++ etc.

This project will develop new numerical discretisations for solving PDEs that can subsequently be applied to problems in fluid mechanics.

We are interested in pursuing this project and welcome applications if you are self-funded or have funding from other sources, including government sponsorships or your employer.

Please contact the supervisor when you want to pursue this project, citing the project title in your email, or find out more about our PhD programme in Mathematics.
