FROM: Nick Daish, 23/2/2022
SUBJECT: UKFN Thesis Competition 2022
We are pleased to announce UKFN is once again holding a competition for
the best fluids thesis examined in the UK during 2021, with a prize of
£500 for the winner. Nominations are now being accepted at
competition at fluids.ac.uk, with a closing date of 30 APRIL 2022. Full
details are given here [2]. 

FROM: Leeds Institute for Fluid Dynamics, 16/2/2022
SUBJECT: ECR survey for UK Fluids National Initiative  


The purpose of this survey is to ensure that the thoughts of the Early
Career Researcher (ECR) UK Fluids community feed into the development of
the national initiative for Fluids concept, following the launch of the
UK Fluids report (https://eprints.whiterose.ac.uk/178990/).  

For context, the national initiative is still being shaped but could
look something like Royce (https://www.royce.ac.uk/) or Turing
(https://www.turing.ac.uk/), but for Fluid Dynamics in the UK. The hope
is that this initiative will support multiple aspects including driving
innovative science (fundamental and applied); enabling collaborations
across UK academia, research organisations and industry; career
development and the pipeline of talent; international engagement;
advocacy, outreach and diversity.   

students, early postdoctoral researchers, experienced postdoctoral
researchers or academic staff in their first permanent role as a
lecturer/assistant professor.

FROM: Marat Margulis, Bangor University, 9/3/22
SUBJECT: The presence of a strong magnetic field in tokamaks leads to
Magneto Hydro Dynamic (MHD) Lorentz force effects, which fundamentally
impact the heat transfer characteristics of a liquid metal flow. There
is very limited experimental data for multiple parallel or crossflow
channels, which are more relevant to the actual breeder blanket design.
The project will provide feedback to existing blanket designs as well as
experimental data for mathematical model validation. The proposed study
is expected to provide a new and deeper understanding of the prediction
of MHD effects on fusion-relevant flows and heat-exchangers and guidance
for increasing thermal performance of blankets, which can improve the
design and viability of fusion reactors.

TOPIC: Modelling Flow processes in Carbon Sequestration 
DETAILS: This project will involve the development of models of the flow
of carbon dioxide through a saline aquifer as part of the process of
carbon capture and storage to decarbonise large industrial emissions of
