PhD scholarship application in Geomechanics at University of Lyon - Micromechanical and multi-scale behaviour of damaged heterogeneous rocks around underground excavations

 

Description:

The goal of this project is to investigate the multi-scale behaviour of clay rocks, going from microscopic to macroscopic scale, with application to underground drilling. The research will be based on multi-scale approach and numerical method allowing to model microstructure media in a double-scale framework (FEMxFEM). Please, see the full description in the attached file here below.

Applications are welcome from students graduated in the areas of civil, mechanical, physical, and materials engineering, or geosciences. Basic knowledge in mechanics of porous media, constitutive modelling of geomaterials and interest for numerical methods is required. Applications should be submitted by May 2020 by emailing a CV, a PhD summary, publications references, scientific/academic references, and recommendation letter.
