Postdoc vacancy (3 years) on computational mechanics of thick adhesive joints in 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).

Several PhD positions available at Vanderbilt University

 

We are seeking several doctoral students to join the Multiscale Computational Mechanics Laboratory (MCML) at Vanderbilt University beginning either Spring 2023 or Fall 2023. The two broad research areas are briefly described below. Candidates must also have a strong general interest (prior experience is a plus) in computational mathematics, mechanics, modeling and simulation and computer programming.

 

The specific research areas as follows:

PhD position in multi-scale modeling of sea ice deformation

We are looking for a doctoral student to work multi-scale modeling of sea ice deformation on numerical modeling of ridging of sea ice by using discrete element method. Large-scale continuum models are typically used to study ice behavior with a resolution of some tens of kilometers. These models do not accurately describe small-scale processes related to deformation and failure of ice. In such models, the ice properties, such as compressive strength are tuned so that the models to present observed ice behavior. Predictive power of the models suffers from this.
