The Institute of Applied Geometry at Johannes Kepler University (Linz, Austria) has an opening for one 1-year postdoc position (experienced researcher 4-10 years experience) under an EU 7 FP People Programme Industry-Academia Partnerships and Pathways (Call: FP7-PEOPLE-2012-IAPP) on "Exact and Adaptive Modeling and Simulation of the Air Passage of Aircraft Engines" (EXAMPLE).
The interaction between the processes of design and analysis of mechanical components is at the core of industrial engineering. In particular, in the very specialized and competitive field of designing highlyefficient aircraft engines, a myriad of optimization loops are required to fully exploit the entire potential of efficiency with respect to various mechanical, aerodynamic and thermal objectives.
On the one hand, the design process is performed with the help of suitable software tools, which represent the field of Computer Aided Design (CAD). In aircraft engine design, a combination of commercial products with highly specialized in-house software tools is used. On the other hand, the analysis process relies on software from the field of Computer Aided Engineering (CAE).
The interaction of these tools, which is needed for optimizing the engineering design with respect to various criteria, is not very well supported by the currently used mathematical technology for geometric design and numerical simulation. The main objective of the EXAMPLE project is as follows:
Improve the design and analysis processes for the air passage of aircraft engines by enhancing the existing mathematical technology using the new approach of Isogeometric Analysis (IGA).
IGA which was proposed by T.J.R Hughes et al. in 2005.
This objective will be achieved by combing expertise of the academic partner JKU on IGA, which was acquired during a previous European project on IGA, with the experience on design and analysis of aircraft engines which is available at the industrial partner MTU.
