Direct Numerical Simulation of Boiling Multiphase Flows
MINES ParisTech, Valbonne - Sophia Antipolis
Mathematics (applied) Materials Science Mechanical Engineering 
Full Description:

Presentation of the establishment and the laboratory of reception:

The CEMEF is a European leader in the field of research
on material processing (metals and polymers).
Approximately 160 people - including 70 PhD students are performing research
designed to get in depth understanding of forming processes. The main expertise
is on thermal, mechanical and physical modeling, numerical simulation,
processing, physics and chemical physics. In the field of polymers, the main
research areas are:

· Polymers
physics: Crystallisation (quiescent, under flow), flow of suspension, polymer
rheology, dispersion of porous aggregates.

Simulation: Modelling of the main polymer forming processes, software
Injection molding (Rem3D®), extrusion (Ludovic®), blow molding (TForm®), sheet
forming, etc.

· Surface
science: Surface reactivity, adhesive bonding, friction, lubrication, wear.

Thesis work description:

  Fluid flows involving interfaces between different materials (i.e. gaz
and liquid) are of paramount importance in many fields of science and
engineering. The literature on multiphase flow simulation is quite
complete and different methods have been widely implemented and have
found success in computing a variety of two-phase flows involving drops,
bubbles, and particles. However, for various reasons, they have not been applied to the more general problem of flows with phase change.
Today, the coupling of multiphase flows with heat transfer and phase
change poses additional numerical challenges for interface methods. It
required a coupled resolution of unsteady mass, momentum, and energy
transport with the interfacial physics of surface tension, latent heat,
discontinuous material properties, and complex liquid–vapor interface
