PhD position in the filed of computational mechanics on metal alloys based Additive Manufacturing

GRAMME project aims at developing an efficient and relevant coupling strategy in laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) process modelling between microstructure development and anisotropic mechanical behaviour at part scale during and after construction. An efficient computational platform based on model-order reduction and experimental validations will be established by the end of the project to meet this objective.
