Implementation of dynamic contact angle model into an in-house developed CFD code

Many problems in two phase flow and wetting, involve understanding the motion of the contact line where the solid, liquid and gas phases meet. This project involves implementing into an inhouse CFD code, a dynamic contact line model. The student should have a knack for programming with interest in two phase flows, CFD, transport phenomena and fluid mechanics. The work will give the student exposure to state-of-the-art two phase CFD algorithms and their implementation. There will also be opportunity to work on experiments at later stages of the PhD. Contact me for further details.
