Description du poste

The objectives of these two postdocs is to contribute to the state-of-the art wind turbine flow simulations based on Large-Eddy Simulations, to model the flow, and the Actuator Line Method to model the rotor [1]. The objectives are split into two parts:
– Wind modeling: development of new wind models and validation, impact of wind on small- and large-scale flow
– Multiphysics coupling: aero-servo-elastic simulations by combining the flow solver to a servo-elastic code, validation on real offshore wind farms data, uncertainty
The work will be performed into the YALES2 flow solver [2,3].
