Workplace : NANTES
Date of publication : Thursday, January 09, 2020
Type of Contract : FTC Scientist
Contract Period : 12 months
Expected date of employment : 1 April 2020
Proportion of work : Full time
Remuneration : 2643€ gross / month
Desired level of education : 5-year university degree
Experience required : 1 to 4 years


The person that will be hired will perform numerical simulations of flow around a realistic road vehicle using the flow solver ISIS-CFD. The candidate will be based on the results obtained for the Ahmed body which is the initial configuration pf the ANR COWAVE project. The influence of the flaps to reduce the aerodynamic drag will be investigated. The addition of the synthetic jets will also be considered. The ultimate goal will be an active control of the flow to reduce the aerodynamic drag. The numerical simulations will be carried out at model scale but also at full scale to check the efficiency of the demonstrator.


- Create three-dimensional meshes for complex geometries,
- Carry out numerical simulations of flow around a realistic road vehicle,
- Analyse the results obtained,
- Participate in the progress meetings of the ANR COWAVE project.


The person that will be hired must have a PhD in computational fluids dynamics. The candidate must have knowledge of scientific computing and must be able to mesh complex three-dimensional geometries. Knowledge of turbulence modeling is required. Interest in flow control would be appreciated.

Work Context

The person that will be hired will work with METHRIC team (Modelling of Incompressible Turbulent Flows at High Reynolds Numbers and Couplings) of LHEEA (research Laboratory in Hydrodynamics, Energetics and Atmospheric Environment) at Centrale Nantes. The work is part of the ANR COWAVE (Closed-loop control of the wake of a road vehicle) project which groups the laboratories PRISME of Polytech Orléans, the LHEEA of Centrale Nantes, the PPRIME institute of Poitiers and the car manufacturer PSA.
The work will be supervised by Emmanuel Guilmineau, researcher at the CNRS.
