Topics for Bachelor & Master Theses or Study Projects

  • There is always the possibility to write a Bachelor or Master thesis in the direction of numerical simulation of turbulent flows using stochastic approaches as ODT/ODTLES. The scientific topics reach from mixing, boundary layer processes, combustion, process engineering to meteorology and geophysics.
  • The Chair specializes in fundamental research using Stochastic Turbulence Models.
  • Students can also propose their own idea for a Thesis.
  • Possible tools to carry out the research are, e.g., OpenFOAM, Ansys Fluent, Nek5000, and
    in-house CFD software.
  • Required skills: solid background in fluid mechanics; experience with CFD methods (e.g. modules CFD 1 and CFD Project) and turbulence modeling, (e.g. module Turbulence Modeling)
  • Desired skills: programming experience in Fortran,C/C++, R, Python or Matlab; basic experience with Linux and computing clusters (e.g. modules Fundamentals of CFD or Parallel Computing).
  • Specific topics where the chair staff can already propose a detailed project outline are listed below.
