Postdoc position on multi-scale modelling of composites vibration response @ Ghent University (Belgium)

Nowadays, there is an increasing interest to use composite materials in automotive applications, in particular the use of fibre-reinforced plastics (carbon or glass fibres in a polymer matrix) is widely considered. The use of lighter materials, and hence a reduced fuel consumption, can be one of the possible solutions for reduced CO2 emissions.

PhD position on multi-scale modelling of fatigue damage in composites @ Ghent University (Belgium)

The core idea of this project is to develop a consistent multi-scale modelling framework for fatigue damage in unidirectionally reinforced composites. Three scales are distinguished:

Postdoc on FE simulation of 3D printed cellular structures @ Ghent University (Belgium)

"3D printing" is a popular term for the layerwise manufacturing of metals or polymers with a printing head, that builds up the component with droplets of molten polymer or metal into a 3D shape. The geometries that can be realized with this technique, can be very complex, and this with a minimum of material usage, because no material has to be milled away. Further, very lightweight materials can be achieved. Flanders region plays a leading role in Europe in this 3D printing sector, with important industrial players such as Materialise, Layerwise and Melotte.

PhD position in Mechanical Engineering available (EU/UK applicants only)

In many areas of engineering, materials and structrures are subjected to deformation at high rates (e.g., impact, crash, blast). Therefore, it is essential for design engineers to have reliable mechanical models to predict the behaviour of the materials in such applications. It is proposed in this project to extend the Virtual Field method to high velocity loading conditions where inertial forces affects significantly the deformation mechanisms of the material under dynamic loads.

Post-doctoral position in Computational Mechanics

One post-doctoral Research Associate in Computational Mechanics is sought to work on the Croatian Science Foundation project No. 1631 'Configuration-dependent Approximation in Non-linear Finite-element Analysis of Structures' on a full-time fixed-term contract for the duration of three years and six months or until the project financing has expired.

The project explores the configuration-dependent interpolation as a novel, unorthodox and remarkably promising expansion of the framework within which the non-linear finite-element method has been traditionally contained. The basic idea underlying the project stems from an apparent disparity between the rather advanced extensions of the traditional linear finite-element principles to non-linear problems and the fact that the key finite-element concept – that of interpolation of the unknown functions – is surprisingly kept mostly constant, i.e. configuration-independent. Enabling the finite-element approximation to become configuration-dependent is motivated by the existing need to improve the current non-linear finite-element procedures, in particular for mechanical problems defined on non-linear manifolds. This principle is presented as the general concept providing viable novel development paradigm with obvious benefits for a wider class of mechanical problems. The configuration-dependent approximation to be designed shall obey the essential convergence requirements, with its extra flexibility (arising from the potential of the new approximation to vary with the configuration) employed to improve the solution in some clearly defined manner.

More detail in the attachment.

Closing date for application: 16. January 2015

Gross salary: €20.000 per annum
