In the theoretical aspects, it is mainly about developing your knowledge in turbulence modeling and multiphase flow. In the technical context, it is mainly about heat transfer, vehicle aerodynamics, turbo engines and internal combustion engines.
The goal of the graduate school is to give you as a doctoral student an in-depth knowledge of fluid mechanics, turbulence and heat transfer with associated applications both through the use of numerical and experimental methods.
The graduate school is organised within the Department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences.

This syllabus applies to doctoral students admitted as of 2021-08-01
Regarding older syllabus, please contact the first vice/vice head of department.
A doctoral student admitted to an older syllabus may earn a degree in accordance with this, provided that the current Appointment regulation for doctoral programmes and current Local Qualifications Framework – third cycle qualifications are followed.
Doctoral students admitted to an older syllabus of graduate school Thermo- and Fluid Dynamics can, however, change to the current syllabus by an application to the Deputy/Vice Head of Department. The change must be documented in the individual study plan.
The graduate school is regulated by the Appointment regulation for doctoral programmes and the Local Qualifications Framework for Chalmers University of Technology - third cycle qualifications and is described in the syllabus for the graduate school. In the event of any conflict between the documents, the Appointment regulation for doctoral programmes and the Local Qualifications Framework for Chalmers University of Technology - third cycle qualifications are governing.
