3 PhD positions in Computational Mechanics in Belgium and Luxembourg

ludovicnoels's picture

Context

Profs. Thierry J. Massart (Universite Libre de Bruxelles), Ludovic Noels (Universite de Liege) and Stephane P.A.
Bordas (University of Luxembourg) have recently been awarded a joint research project by the FNRS and FNR.
The project focuses on the mechanical behavior of discrete metallic materials, such as metal foams and printed metallic structures

PhD opportunities

We are looking for 3 PhD students to develop the computational models for discrete metallic materials. Their work will comprise the developments of

(i) a mesostructural model in which each strut is represented by a series of beams,
(ii) a mesostructural model in which each strut is modeled continuously by 3D finite elements, and
(iii) multiscale methodologies to upscale the mesostructural models including their variations to enable efficient engineering-­‐scale, stochastic computations.

Your profile

We are looking for holders of an MSc title (or who will receive their MSc title before the start of the project) or students who have received at least 300 ECTS.

Candidates should have a sincere interest in mechanics of materials and computational mechanics. All computational models will be implemented from scratch, so you should be interested in numerical methods and programming and preferably have experience with both.

Start: October 1, 2016
