About Nipun Arora
I am an assistant professor in the mechanical engineering department at IIT Jodhpur since October 2019. Prior to that, I worked as a senior member in the aerospace and automobile CFD simulation division at Sankhya Sutra Labs Private Limited. I did my postdoctoral research at Technion - Israel Institute of Technology. I completed my M. Tech and Ph. D. at IIT Delhi in 2013 and 2017, respectively. I received my B.E. from Delhi College of Engineering (now DTU) in 2011.

My doctoral work was directed towards the development of a fluid-structure interaction framework for moving boundary simulations to examine the unsteady aerodynamics and propulsion performance of biological flyers. This study is expected to facilitate the design and analysis of realistic and bio-inspired micro-air vehicles (MAVs).

About the job
Project title: Development of a partitioned fluid-structure interaction solver with moving boundaries and turbulent flows.

Brief description of the project:
A consistent prediction of the interaction between fluid and structure has garnered a lot of interest lately, with applications in bio-inspired flight, biological processes such as blood-heart interaction, and aero-elasticity that includes flutter and buffeting. However, these problems pose serious challenges due to their multidisciplinary nature (knowledge of both fluid and structural mechanics required) and non-linearity. Due to inherent impediments and complexity involved in carrying out experiments on FSI, the development of numerical tools has opened new avenues in this area. Currently, there are two approaches: (a) Monolithic i.e. fluid and structural parts solved simultaneously, and (b) Partitioned i.e. separate solvers and methods for fluid and structure. The latter approach will be pursued in this work, based on FEM for the structural part (geometric non-linearity) and LBM for fluid.

Key responsibilities:

1. Work on being in the development of an in-house fluid-structure interaction solver based on the partitioned approach
2. Develop an in-house code using C/C++ for a fluid-structure interaction solver

Essential qualification and experience:

1. B. Tech/ B.E. (mechanical/aerospace/civil/computational mathematics) or M.Sc. (Mathematics) or related fields with strong programming skills (C/C++)
2. M. Tech (thermofluids/design/aerodynamics/structures/computational mathematics) with knowledge of finite element method (FEM), lattice Boltzmann method (LBM), numerical methods, and Parallel programming using OpenMP/MPI
3. Thorough knowledge of numerical methods is desirable
