Subject: FLAP: A Matlab Package for Adjustable Floating-Point Arithmetic

Flap is a package to implement floating-point arithmetic with
adjustable precision, in which arithmetic operations are performed on
Matlab doubles but are rounded to a specified number of decimal digits
after each operation. It is intended to make it easy to generate
examples of the effects of rounding error for classroom use. The
rounding level is controlled by a global variable that can be changed
in the course of a computation. Modes for single and double precision
binary arithmetic are also provided. The operations are performed on
objects of class flap, which consists of an integer indicating the
current rounding level for the object and a double containing its
data. Most of Matlab's commonly used operations and functions have
been overloaded to work with flap objects. In addition, Flap provides
functions to compute the LU, QR, and Cholesky decompositions of a
flap, as well as routines for manipulating Householder transformations
and plane rotations.

FLAP may be obtained from or via

Subject: Postdoc and PhD position in Scientific Computing at Univ Leeds, UK

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research fellowship (PDRF) and
a PhD studentship, both starting on 1st July 2009 or soon afterwards, to
develop and enhance new computational algorithms for the simulation of fluid
flows. The research will be undertaken within the Scientific Computation
group ( in the School of Computing at
the University of Leeds.

The aim of this EPSRC-funded project is to develop and implement new
computational algorithms which are specifically designed to reproduce the
most important underlying features of the mathematical model of the fluid
flow physics, leading to far more accurate approximations than are currently
possible. The research is inherently multidisciplinary and lies at the
interface between applied mathematics, computer science and engineering.
Candidates for the PDRF position should therefore hold a PhD in applied
mathematics or a related mathematical, scientific or engineering discipline.
Programming experience and familiarity with numerical techniques for partial
differential equations are also essential. Applicants for the PhD position
should have, or be expecting to obtain in the near future, a first class or
good 2.1 honours degree in mathematics, engineering or a mathematical science.

Subject: Two PhD's for Multiscale modification of swirling combustion

Two PhD positions are vacant within the project Multiscale
modification of swirling combustion for optimized gas turbines This
project is part of the research-program Clean Combustion Concepts,
funded by the Dutch Foundation for Technical Sciences (STW). The
research is performed in a close collaboration between Eindhoven
University of Technology and the University of Twente.

• The collaboration in this project involves researchers fromthe
Combustion Technology group (Mechanical Engineering - Eindhoven)
• The Chair for Anisotropic Turbulence (Applied Physics - Eindhoven)
• The Thermal Engineering group (Mechanical Engineering - Twente)
• The Chair for Multiscale Modeling and Simulation (Applied
Mathematics - Twente)

The research in these two PhD projects combines physical experiments
and computational modeling and simulation, building on the expertise
of the participating research groups. The interaction between the
experimental and computational work is important to enhance our
understanding of the role of low swirl multiscale modifications of gas
flow and its relevance to combustion. Motivation and background The
project focuses on physical experiments and computational models for
combustion in gas turbines. Traditionally, flame stabilization of
combustion under lean conditions is based on high swirl combustors. A
new technology that has recently been proposed is based on low swirl
combustion. This is beneficial for reducing the release of undesired
pollutants contributing to greenhouse effects. To control combustion
under such conditions, mechanisms for enhanced mixing are
essential. In recent years it was found that the mixing efficiency of
turbulent flows can be strongly increased by external agitation with
the ‘correct’ perturbations. This phenomenon is referred to as
“resonant mixing” - temporal and spatial perturbations at suitable
scales can increase mixing by 50 % or more at the same power input.
The idea of the present research is to optimize low swirl burners by
adding resonant mixing perturbations. The PhD students will develop
and conduct physical experiments and numerical simulation to achieve
optimal low-swirl combustion. The numerical work involves DNS and LES,
with appropriately reduced chemistry. The physical experiments will be
performed on laboratory flames with the help of laser diagnostics such
as Raman spectroscopy. In addition, work on engineering computational
modeling will be included, adopting RANS and commercial software. The
two 1. Direct and large-eddy simulation of swirling combustion (TUE)
2. Swirling combustion: physical experiments and computational
engineering modeling (UT) Candidates We are looking for candidates
with an MSc-degree in one of the technical sciences, e.g, Mechanical
Engineering, Applied Physics or Applied Mathematics. Interest in
experimental techniques, computational fluid dynamics, numerical
methods, turbulence and combustion is important. Appointment and
Salary We offer a challenging job in a dynamic and ambitious academic
environment. The appointment is for four years. The gross monthly
salaries increase from €2042 per month initially, to € 2612 in the
fourth year. In addition, an attractive package of fringe benefits
(including excellent work facilities, end of the year allowance and
sport facilities) is offered.
