Note: 1) The projects listed below are for the applicants to select research topics and supervisors for August 2018 intake of MEng/PhD students.Note: 2) Due to the large numbers of applicants, we suggest you to select several supervisors and topics in your personal statement, in case the professor you select has already identified student for his/her project.Note: 3) Most Important, do not forgot to sign the hard copy of your application form before you mail to us. Unsigned application will slow down the application processes

1Dr. ZHANG Huangwei (mpezhu@nus.edu.sg)Modelling Ignition of Turbulent Premixed Flames with Conditional Moment Closure (CMC)Ignition of turbulent premixed flames will be numerically studied with the Conditional Moment Closure (CMC) model under large eddy simulation framework. The PhD candidate needs to derive the CMC model for turbulent premixed flames. The effects of local turbulence on the minimum ignition energy, behaviors of flame evolution after successful ignition and randomness of premixed flame ignition will be investigated. The research output will be significant for designing the next-generation combustors with low emissions. (1) A bachelor in mater degree in Engineering, Chemistry, Physics and Applied Mathematics, with a focus on either chemical kinetics, or fluid mechanics and combustion modelling. (2) A qualification equivalent to first-class honors degree is preferred. (3) Experience in numerical methods, excellent computational skills, experience with Fortran/C++ programming, and interest in CFD programming and turbulent combustion modelling.1
