At the CNRS, at the ICARE UPR3021 laboratory, located on the CNRS campus in Orléans, the candidate will be responsible for conducting numerical and experimental work on hydrogen combustion under cryogenic conditions. The aim is to carry out an experimental and numerical study of the properties of cryogenic hydrogen flames. Experiments will be carried out on a laboratory scale and on a large scale in the facilities of the project partners.
The project has two components:
- laboratory-scale studies on the dynamics of hydrogen flames at cryogenic temperatures including closed-tube tests and 1D simulation on laboratory codes; -
- participation in tests carried out on the large-scale facilities of the project partners with the implementation of advanced diagnostics (time-resolved radiative flux measurements, dynamic pressure, fast PIV, fast imaging (BOS).
the candidate must have:
- A doctorate in Combustion or Energy or Chemistry-Physics of reactive systems.
- Solid background on combustion, and/or energy and/or chemical combustion kinetics, and /or reactive fluid dynamics
- Solid background in detailed chemical kinetics modeling
- Skills in scientific digital tools: Matlab, Python, Labview
- Skills in Combustion specific codes: Chemkin, Cantera, Cosilab
- Language proficiency: fluent English, "Shock Waves" team is international
- Ability to work in a team on multi-disciplinary projects
- Writing skills: Synthesis reports, publications in international journals and international conferences
The research work is carried out within the framework of a PEPR-H2 Decarbonated - ESKHYMO project in collaboration with CEA, INERIS, Air Liquide and IMFT. The research work will be carried out at the ICARE laboratory, a CNRS unit in Orléans, in the "Shock Wave" team, and on the facilities of the other project partners.
Experimental facilities dedicated to the study of flame propagation. They are coupled to numerous diagnostics: fast pressure sensors, gas phase micro-chromatograph, fast imaging system, fast particle image velocimetry system. The candidate will be in charge of the low temperature implementation on the existing facilities.
Constraints and risks
- Short-term travel to France and abroad (Japan, Germany) for progress meetings
- Travel abroad to present the work at international conferences
