Project Description

Research field:
We are working in Computational Materials Science which is an interdisciplinary area. It’s a challenging mix of physics, materials science, engineering, mathematics, and computational science. While prior experience with computational work is not required (but encouraged), a strong background in materials science, materials engineering, mechanics of materials, or/ and physics is necessary for the type of work in our group.

The strength and reliability of engineering materials is related to the internal microstructure, which includes materials imperfections (e.g., interfaces, impurities, dislocations) with their respective size and distances to each other. Nanostructured materials have extraordinary and unexpected properties compared to traditional engineering alloys due to a nanoscale microstructure.

This project aims to relate the interface structure to the interface properties of advanced engineering materials by using atomistic simulations methods on high-performance computers. Based on your results emerging processing and properties, predictive models can be formulated to engineer new materials.
