We are pleased to invite applications for a PhD position in the new four-year EU-funded Marie Sklodowska-Curie ITN programme “INSPIRE - INNOVATIVE GROUND INTERFACE CONCEPTS FOR STRUCTURE PROTECTION”. This network is led by National Technical University of Athens and consists of 7 European universities (Univ. of Trento, ETH, Univ. of Lille, Technical University of Kaiserslautern, Univ. of Mons, Univ of Bologna) 1 Research Institute (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) as well as 5 industrial partners (RINAC,FIP, ADT, IGF, GRSc).

 

 

A. THE PROJECT

The goal of INSPIRE is to foster a new generation of highly qualified researchers and engineers able to implement novel soil-foundation-structure concepts for the efficient protection of structures from all ground induced hazards, including earthquakes and all other sources of low-frequency noise and vibration excitations.

INSPIRE relies on recent innovative scientific and technological concepts, mainly developed within the broad concept of meta-materials – natural or artificial materials or structures which exhibit extraordinary properties for inhibiting or conditioning wave propagation in all spatial directions over broad frequency bands. General developments of meta-materials will be combined or enriched with novel absorption and isolation concepts (i.e negative effective mass and stiffness moduli media, novel friction vibro-impact rocking motion based non-linear mechanisms) with the goal to overcome the limitations of the existing seismic and low-frequency isolation technologies and deliver highly-damped, low maintenance and easily implemented designs.

 

 

B. THE POSITION AND APPLICATION PROCEDURE

 Research Topic: Optimization and application of novel protection concepts for pipes: Meta-Pipes.

 

For further information and to submit the application see the page at the portal section: https://www.unitn.it/en/ateneo/1954/announcement-of-selection

Curriculum C: Modelling and Simulation -> C7: "Optimization and application of novel protection concepts for pipes: Meta-Pipes"

Deadline for applications: 29 August 2019, hrs. 4.00 PM (Italian time)
