The University of Salzburg invites offers for the following customer funded research, to be performed within the ongoing FP7 project NanoValid (www.nanovalid.eu)
The work will consist of numerical modeling of the dispersion of engineered nanoparticles (ENPs) for an accidental release scenario involving a sizable amount of nanoparticles (tens to hundreds of kilograms).
The input parameters of the model(s) will be number size distribution information of the released ENPs, together with physical characteristics that constrain the coagulation or agglomeration and deposition behavior of the ENPs as a function of their size.
The work will produce 1) a process modeling of the time-dependent evolution of the released aerosol size distribution and 2) estimates of the extent of dispersion of aerosol from the original aerosol source.
