To improve further computational tools for fracture, we need a
talented phd. We are developping transition models from damage
to fracture for several type of materials (quasi-brittle and ductile).
The position will be open until filled. Please send me your CV
if you are interested.
The theoretical framework is the Thick Level Set model for damage (TLS)
and the numerical implementation uses level sets and the extended
finite element method (X-FEM).
The research team currently gathers 9 persons.
