The Postdoc will be at the heart of the experimental efforts of the ANR FLOwCON project. He will have to implement the control methods developed in the other tasks of the ANR. These methods will be based on Genetic Programming or reinforced learning.
His role will be to conduct experimental demonstrations of control by Machine Learning, in 3 experimental situations:
- Fluidic PinBall wake stabilization (at LIMSI, http://berndnoack.com/FlowControl.php)
- open cavity flow stabilization (at LIMSI)
- Reattachment of the turbulent boundary layer on wing profile (PRISM).
The successful candidate should demonstrate a strong background in experimental flow control ideally with experience in feedback laws. Experience in flow velocimetry and visualization is appreciated. Good notions of signal analysis, control theory and machine learning are certainly a plus. The candidate should also have strong skills in communication and excellent writing capabilities.
FLOwCON is an ANR project funded by DGA (French Direction Générale de l'Armement) and devoted to the development and the demonstration of machine learning methods for the closed loop control of turbulent fluid flows such as the one shown in the figure below. This project is lead by a consortium of turbulence control researchers of France at LIMSI, PRISME and PPRIME in collaboration with a world-wide network of leading scholars in machine learning, nonlinear dynamics, control theory, simulations and experiments
