Industrial PhD studentship available (EU/UK students only), University of Southampton, UK

A PhD studentship is available at the University of Southampton as part of a collaboration with MatchID NV. It consists at exploring new heterogeneous test configurations for composites and elastomers, based on Digital Image Correlation (DIC) and the Virtual Fields Method (VFM). The overarching goal is to propose new standard tests relying on heterogeneous states of strain and stress for cheaper and more robust material testing.

Mesoscale Constitutive Modeling of Non-Crystallizing Filled Elastomer

We have just published a new paper, 1st in the series, that presents a computational model to understand the microstructural changes in the filled elastomers as a consequence of mechanical forces. A heterogeneous (or multiphase) constitutive model at the mesoscale explicitly considering filler particle aggregates, elastomeric matrix and their mechanical interaction through an approximate interface layer is presented. An innovative lego-set method is discussed for generation of random microstructures that can be used for simple stochastic analysis.
