PhD position in computational solid / fracture mechanics


I have a PhD position available for a project titled "Asynchronous, Parallel-Adaptive Solution of Extreme Multiscale Problems in Seismology" funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF). The research involves:

a. Formulation of contact / fracture models (interfacial and/or bulk) for seismic applications, e.g. anisotropic, inhomogeneous rock under dynamic loads.

b. Adaptive spacetime time discontinuous Galerkin formulation for the solution of multiphysics PDEs relevant to this application.

c. High performance computing aspects of the method.

PhD Position in Computational Simulations of Materials

A position for PhD student (research assistant) is available in the Department of Mechanical Engineering within the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology at Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). The full-support position is available for Spring 2018 or Fall 2018. The projects are focused on conducting computational simulations of various materials, including atomistic and multiscale simulations.

Full PhD scholarship available - composite material modelling at University of Southern Queensland

We are looking for a PhD candidate to work on numerical modelling of composites manufacturing. Automation drives down the production cost in composites manufacturing. The project focus on self-learning process modelling coupled with real-time pressure field monitoring. The integrated virtual-physical approach aims for : (1) real-time prediction of defect formation, and (2) real-time optimisation of process correction parameters. Self-learning process modelling is the enabling technology towards smart factory.
