PhD Position on Dike Breach Modelling at EDF R&D (Paris, France) and University of Liege (Belgium)
Topic: Physical and numerical modelling of dike breach induced flow as a result of overtopping
Duration: 3 years (2014-2017)

The aim of this PhD project is to improve the physical understanding of the process of gradual breaching of river dikes as a result of overtopping. Based on physical modeling, the thesis will lead to the development of models for predicting the breach geometry and breach outflow with a higher accuracy and reliability compared to tools available today. The project will combine experimental tests with innovative developments in existing numerical models Telemac (www.opentelemac.org) and Wolf2D (www.hach.ulg.ac.be/cms/wolf).
Full details are available through this link [in French].
Applicants must send a cover letter, a detailed CV and the names and addresses of two referees to:
- Benjamin Dewals: +32 (0) 4 3669283, B.Dewals@ulg.ac.be
- Kamal El Kadi ABDERREZZAK: Tel. +33 (0) 1 30877911, kamal.el-kadi-abderrezzak@edf.fr
Deadline for application is 14th April 2014
