PhD Studentship Opportunity: Inelastic performance of steel-timber hybrid building systems

Steel-timber hybrid systems can benefit from the synergetic behaviour of two materials combined, providing significant reductions in embodied carbon compared to conventional systems, and have the potential of being reused at the end of life by adopting a design for disassembly strategy. Read more

Micromorphic modeling of mechanical metamaterials: theoretical modeling and numerical simulations

One PhD position is open at TU Dortmund, Faculty of Architecture and Civil Engineering, Germany (starting from September 2021). The PhD work focuses on the enriched continuum modeling of metamaterials and the conception of meta-structures that control elastic waves and recover energy. Read more
