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).

PhD vacancy (3 years) on experimental testing of thermoplastic automotive composites

Thermoplastic composites are gaining more and more interest in automotive, aerospace and sports applications, because of the short cycle times and recycling possibilities. Besides short fibre-reinforced thermoplastics, also continuous fibre-reinforced thermoplastic composites are being considered for load-carrying structures. However, their behaviour during manufacturing and during in-service use is very different from the traditional thermoset composites (typically epoxy-based).

Cambridge University - Research Assistant/Associate in Mechanics of Multilattices (Theory)

A position exists, for a Research Assistant/Associate in the Department of Engineering, to conduct research into Mechanics of lattice materials. The post holder will be located in Central Cambridge Cambridgeshire, UK. There is an opportunity to invent interpenetrating lattice materials in order to design SOFT and HARD meta-materials of any given stiffness, strength and toughness. The actuation response due to seepage of a liquid through the lattice needs to be modelled by making use of experimental results from within the group.
