UKFN weekly round-up 29/1/21

If you would like to circulate a brief message to the UKFN mailing list,
please send an appropriately formatted item to info at fluids.ac.uk by
FRIDAY NOON of that week. Messages are repeated according to these
guidelines [1]. 


No new messages.  



*Summarising the value of Fluid Dynamics to the UK economy and society
(for both academics and industry staff) - deadline end of January 2021*
More responses from industry still needed, please do share with your

In order to give a more accurate response to government, funding
agencies and investors on the current and future impact of the fluids
sectors in the UK the Leeds Institute for Fluid Dynamics (LIFD) would be
grateful for your responses to this short survey. With Brexit, Covid-19
and a new industry strategy due shortly it is vital we can present
compelling evidence of the growth, exports and investment of industry
and research foci and industrial engagement of the research community. 
Responses are welcome from those working with fluids in industry and
academia at any level.   Academic or industrial orientated questions are
determined by which sector you identify with, within the survey.  No
organisational or individual identifiable info is requested. The outputs
will be published mid 2021 with the first full assessment of the size of
the fluids industry in the UK and made available to all. The survey
should take around 20 minutes to complete. 

Please forward to all relevant colleagues.

FROM: Debasish Das, University of Strathclyde, 27/1/21
SUBJECT: Fully-funded PhD in University of Strathclyde
TOPIC: We are accepting applications for a 3-year position for a PhD
studentship in Mathematics at University of Strathclyde. The project
topic is "Electrohydrodynamics of Droplet Pairs". Electrohydrodynamics
of drops is a classic fluid mechanical problem, pioneered by G. I.
Taylor and has continued to intrigue scientists to the present day. The
proposed research project will further the field of droplet EHD by
studying the dynamics of a pair of interacting droplets in an electric
field. The student will be jointly supervised by Dr Debasish Das and
Prof. Stephen Wilson.
