Dynamics of bubbles rising in viscoelastic fluids
The student will learn about different methods for discretising partial differential equations and iterative methods for solving the resulting systems of algebraic equations.
This project is advertised as part of the EPSRC Doctoral Training Partnership. It is currently not available to self-funded applicants.
The student will also develop an understanding about the mathematical modelling of viscoelastic fluids. There will also be an element of scientific computing and the student will develop programming skills using MATLAB, C++ etc.
This project will develop new numerical discretizations for solving PDEs that can subsequently be applied to problems in fluid mechanics
