CFD models for the environmental fluid dynamics: implementation and validation

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The research will deal with the development of (open source) CFD models to be nested into meteorological models at regional scales (of RANS type). The main objective consists in the determination of high resolution flow fields (tens of meters) through which solve the (highly non-hydrostatic) dynamic effects induced by orography spatial variations of subgrid type for the RANS strategy and thermal effects occuring at local scales. This tool will force (high resolution) marine models as well as models for the transport of pollutants. The implementation of the down-scaling strategy will be followed by a validation step against wind measurements in field (available from the observational network OMIRL of the Liguria Region) for selected case studies. In relations to the application outcomes, they will be in the fields of management and environmental monitoring.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
