OFFER DESCRIPTION

IFP Energies nouvelles is recruiting a student for a PhD in the field of wind energy. The thesis work will mainly take place at the IFPEN site in Rueil-Malmaison within the Department of Mechanics of Solids, interacting with the Department of Mechanics of Fluids; and collaborating with the MEMPHIS team from INRIA Bordeaux.

The development of wind power generation is strongly growing in France and around the world. IFPEN, as a public player in the energy transition, invests in this field and in the R&D on the characterization of wind resource, control and command of turbines, coupled mechanical modelling of wind power systems and technological development of offshore floating wind systems.

Increasing the size of wind turbines improves their profitability. This increase in size induces ever greater constraints on the lightness of the blades and makes aero-(servo)-elastic phenomena more significant because of more severe levels of blade deformation. The ambition of this thesis is to set up an innovating fluid-structure coupling methodology that makes it possible to perform simulations describing (very) large wind turbines in a relevant way and in industrial contexts. This PhD thesis is an opportunity for the student to build skills in various domain such as in solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, numerical methods and in the field of wind energy.
