PhD vacancy (4 years) on topology optimization of large 3D printed structures with functionally graded materials

Arc welding based additive manufacturing or WAAM techniques are attracting interest from the manufacturing industry because of their potential to fabricate large metal components with low cost and short production lead time. This process exists alongside other high deposition rate metal AM technologies such as powder and wire based DED. While these use either laser or an electron beam as energy source to melt a metal powder or wire, WAAM technologies melt metal wire using an electric arc.

PhD/postdoc vacancy (4 years) on computational mechanics of large wind turbine blades

Over the last years, UGent-MMS has developed the stand-alone BladeMesher software for generating finite element models of large wind turbine blades. The software reads in the material data and airfoil data of the wind turbine blade, and automatically constructs the geometry and finite element mesh for the blade. In a next step, the nodal and element information of the finite element mesh is written out to an input file for a commercial finite element solver (Abaqus in this case).

Postdoctoral fellowship in computational fracture mechanics at Duke University

I have an opening for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship at Duke University.  The project is a collaboration with experimentalists. and concerns problems in which fractures are driven by fluid flow through porous media.

The ideal candidate will have some background in finite element methods and mechanics, nonlinear coupled field problems, C++, and high-performance computing.  Experience with fracture mechanics is useful but not required.  

The fellowship can begin as soon as this September, 2019, with some flexibility on the start date.
