About the Project
The aim is to develop a simulation code to describe and control the evolution of defects such as dislocations and microcracks that will affect the performance of the manufactured material. The project will involve multiscale simulation that includes atomistic behaviour in advanced manufacturing. The project will explore the possibility of incorporating artificial intelligence into micro-nano machining.
This project is in collaboration with the Institute of Technological Sciences, Wuhan University, China. You are welcome to join this international collaboration effort as a PhD student.
Candidates should have (or expect to achieve) the UK honours degree at 2.1 or above (or equivalent) in Applied Mathematics, Solid / Structural Mechanics, Mechanical Engineering, or Applied Physics.
The applicant should have strong simulation skill in C++ programming and knowledge of mechanics of materials, micromachining.
• Apply for Degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Engineering
