About the Project
With an increase of temperature, the twinning mechanisms become more active giving in this way more formability to the HCP materials. The study of the twinning mechanisms are thus pivotal for the understanding of the formability of these materials.
HCP material have a very good ratio strength/weight and for this reason they are having an increasing use for mechanical and aerospace engineering. The major aim of this PhD project is to use crystal plasticity for the modelling of slip and twinning of HCP materials at room and elevated temperatures and define the best forming conditions for these materials.
Candidates must have some good knowledge on finite element analysis and motivation to develop new models and do programming for an in-house software and also for user material subroutines for Abaqus.
