UCL's Department of Mechanical Engineering is offering a three year studentship 
focusing on experimental fluid dynamics, and the successful applicant will have 
the opportunity to explore applications in both oceanography and medical 
bioreactor design.   The overall project brief is to study bubble dynamics in a 
turbulent flow, especially bubble deformation and fragmentation. Bubble 
fragmentation occurs in a broad variety of natural and industrial processes.   
For example, it is important at the ocean surface, where the bubbles formed by 
breaking waves influence gas transfer rates between the atmosphere and the 
ocean.   Bubble fragmentation is also relevant to biochemical processes, where 
bubble bursting causes cell damage and reduces process efficiency.
