Mesoscopic Modelling and Simulations of Complex Particulate Systems

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in mesoscopic modelling of complex particulate systems at the CFD group (BCAM). The focus of the project will be on accurate modelling and simulation of the dynamics and mechanical properties of micro/nano-particles interacting with complex liquids and under complex microflow conditions.

In the area of material design, complex particulate systems represent one of the main building-blocks for smart composites. In particular, an emerging technology based on so-called “shear thickening fluids” (STFs) -a concentrated suspension of nanoparticles which adopts a solid-like state upon application of high stresses - is receiving increasing attention and has opened up a series of applications as selective dampers, such as a shock absorbers in the aerospace and textile industry.

The postdoctoral candidate will work under the supervision of Prof. Marco Ellero (CFD group, BCAM) on the developments and use of mesoscopic particle- simulation methods to better understand the dynamics and rheology of complex suspensions. This task will be performed in collaboration with experimental rheologists, i.e. Prof. N.J. Wagner (Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering) and Prof. Pep Español (theoreticians at the Department of Theoretical Physics).
