  • As is well known, the entire two- and four-wheeler mobility sector is affected by a strong need to contain the environmental impact. In particular, alongside a growing demand to contain pollutant emissions (in the motorbike sector we are moving towards the EURO 5 + standard expected for 2024), the need to contain noise emissions (also in racing applications) and, above all, emissions of CO2, a climate-altering gas, is becoming increasingly pressing. The motorbike sector is therefore faced with the need to take a significant step forward, which is only possible by integrating innovative calculation tools and experimental methodologies that allow detailed control of fluid- dynamic and combustion phenomena. In this context, the Ph.D. course will have to be oriented towards the systematization of the thermo-fluid-dynamic simulation tools already available, their integration with those of mechanical stress analysis, and any innovative modules to be developed ad hoc. In addition, it will be necessary to develop innovative experimental methodologies that allow not only to validate the numerical results but also to verify the actual validity of the solutions developed (in particular in terms of limiting harmful and CO2 emissions).

    The PhD position is co-funded by the Italian minister and the company Betamotor S.p.a. which is a primary player in the off-road motorcycle application. At least 6 months are due inside the company and at least 6 months are due out of Italy,
