Aim of the project is the acquisition of skills in the use of open-source code for the numerical modeling in support of coastal management and ocean and coastal structures design.

The candidate will participate in the implementation of the transport module in Telemac-Mascaret, code, both for the transport of sediments and of pollution discharge.

The applicant will apply the code to some cases:

- Implementation of sediment transport module in the presence of coastal protection.

- Implementation of the 3D transport module in order to investigate the effect of a thermal and of pollution discharge into the sea .

The candidate will also use the CFD OPEN FOAM code for the simulation of wave - structure interaction.

The candidate will participate in the drafting of research projects expected during the period of the contract.

We expect that the candidate will submit 1 paper to peer review journal.
