Smelting Furnace (ESF). Based at the University of Wollongong (UOW) in the 
School of Mechanical, Materials, Mechatronic and Biomedical Engineering.

The specific research aim is to develop and validate computational fluid dynamic 
models to simulate and better understand operating conditions in the ESF. The 
research is part of the ESF program which includes complex physical experiments 
and numerical studies. The PhD candidate will work within a team of UOW 
investigators and their industrial partner investigators, and be trained to 
undertake high-quality, cutting-edge numerical modelling of multi-phase and 
multi-physics phenomena in the ESF.  

There will be ample opportunity for the PhD candidate to work in both industrial
