About the Project
This project will develop a novel approach aimed at generating a physically-based predictive model of the fatigue failure of carbon fibre reinforced plastic composites by combining state-of-the-art experimental testing facilities and novel modelling approaches. The world renowned fatigure testing facilities available at the University of Sheffield combined with micro-mechanical testing and Digital Image Correlation will be used for the experimental work to inform the development of the models. Simulation techniques based on the Cellular Automata Finite Element (CAFE) model pioneered in the Department will be explored.
Previous experience / requirements: Finite element modelling, Composites, Fracture mechanics
