Master thesis opportunities on data-driven modeling of multiphase flows (for M.Sc. students at Universität Stuttgart).

At the Chair of Data-Driven Fluid Dynamics (DDSim) within the Institute für Thermodynamik der Luft- und Raumfahrt (ITLR), we develop innovative data science methods to tackle technically challenging, socially impactful problems of computational fluid dynamics.

In this context, we offer two opportunities for multiple master's thesis projects in the field of

data-driven modeling of multiphase and turbulent flows.

Project Description

In this project, you will work on developing novel algorithms and techniques for modeling the complex behavior of multi-phase turbulent flows using data-driven approaches. You will have the opportunity to work with large-scale DNS datasets, state-of-the-art simulation tools, and cutting-edge machine-learning techniques.

You Profile

We look for students with a strong background in fluid dynamics and simulation science, specifically:

  • basic knowledge of computational fluid dynamics,

  • experience with programming languages such as Python or Matlab, and

  • strong interests in data analysis and machine learning.

This project is ideal for students who are interested in advancing the state-of-the-art in simulation science and developing skills in machine learning and data-driven modeling. You will work closely Dr. Xu Chu, Prof. Heng Xiao, as well as other members of DDSim.

If you are interested, we look forward to receiving your CV and a brief statement of interest at:

A small error in Reynolds stress can lead to large errors in the mean velocity when solving the RANS equations because of poor model conditioning. We derive a local condition number as an indicator of conditioning and demonstrate that this number explains the error propagation from Reynolds stress to mean velocity with examples.
