PhD Scholarships on Predictive Models for the Combustion of Multicomponent Biofuels at University of Sydney in Australia 2013
Study Subject(s): Study subject is predictive models for the combustion of multicomponent biofuels
Course Level: This scholarship is available for pursuing PhD degree program.
Scholarship Provider: University of Sydney.
Scholarship can be taken at: Australia
Eligibility: Applicants should have completed a master’s degree or a bachelor’s degree with first or upper second class honours in mechanical engineering or a related field and have a strong aptitude for computational fluid dynamics and computer programming. International students may apply but must be in receipt of a tuition fee scholarship from an external funding source.
Scholarship Open for Students of Following Countries: Scholarship is open for International and Australian Students.
Scholarship Description: Up to two PhD scholarships are available to conduct research into advanced, computationally efficient models for predicting pollutant emissions from the turbulent combustion of biofuels. Although biofuels may be carbon-neutral there is a need to ensure that emissions of toxic gases such as NOx and CO are low and that the future widespread use of biofuels does not lead to harmful levels of urban air pollution. The models will make use of large eddy simulations and Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes solvers implemented in open-source software.
Number of awards offered: Up to two PhD scholarships are available.
Duration of Award: Scholarship is awarded for 3 years.
What does it Covers: The scholarship is valued at $34,653 in 2013 (tax exempt) and may be renewed for up to another two years, subject to satisfactory progress. A top up scholarship at the value of $10,000 pa for 3 years will be available to successful APA applicants.
