Postdoc in 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 in experimental mechanics of 3D printed materials @ Ghent University (Belgium)

The approved research project is a collaboration between the companies V!go, Materialise, Devan and Ghent University. It is a feasibility study for 3D printed orthoses, that can be 3D printed and thus tailor-made for every patient. An orthosis (plural: orthoses) is "an externally applied device used to modify the structural and functional characteristics of the neuromuscular and skeletal system".

Postdoc (2 years) for impact behaviour of 3D woven composites in structural automotive parts

The postdoc vacancy is for experimental testing and numerical modelling of impact on 3D woven thermoplastic composites for automotive applications. Our research group is partner in the European FP7 project 3DLightTrans "Large scale manufacturing technology for high-performance lightweight 3D multifunctional composites" ( Key industrial partners are Fiat, Bentley, Federal Mogul, Van de Wiele,...
