PhD Position at University of Greenwich, UK

PhD Studentship: 2014-2016

(PGRO Ref. VCS-ACH-12-14_2)

University of Greenwich, UK


Title: ‘Contactless acoustic wave generation in a melt by electromagnetic induction’



A new electromagnetic induction technique is being developed to produce ultrasonic vibration in liquid metal for grain refinement and nano-particle dispersion in metal matrix composites. The PhD student will assist in the development, testing and validation of the software to simulate the electromagnetic, induced sound and velocity fields. The student will have the opportunity to examine the feasibility of these concepts, supported by experiments performed by partners on the large scale EU project EXOMET (FP7-NMP3-LA-2012-280421). Knowledge in fluid dynamics, electrodynamics and programming skills (FORTRAN, Matlab) are required.


For further information please contact the supervisors: Prof Koulis Pericleous,, or Dr Valdis Bojarevics,
