Funded PhD position in UK - Computational Modelling of Multiaxial Overloads

A fully funded PhD position in computational materials is available at Cranfield University (UK) to study the effects of multiaxial overloads on cracks. The candidate will develop substructure-sensitive crystal plasticity models validated at multiple scales to understand the local response at cracks. The position offers a dynamic research environment and the opportunity to work closely with researchers developing computational models and performing experiments.

Application deadline 25th April 2022.

PhD vacancy (4 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).
