About the Project
The group have pioneered methodologies for modelling material degradation, cracking and failure of both metallic and composite materials using different computational tools such as Finite element, boundary element and meshless methods.
The PhD studentship will contribute to the ongoing research on the development of computational tools for the design of composite parts. Artificial and machine learning techniques are encouraged to be utilized. The students will be sponsored by an EU project with the focus of computational methods for complex composite parts. The range of topics on offer include:
• Structural health monitoring - https://www.imperial.ac.uk/structural-integrity-health-monitoring/research/structural-health-monitoring-/
• Structural Integrity and failure analysis - https://www.imperial.ac.uk/structural-integrity-health-monitoring/research/structural-integrity-and-failure-analysis/
• Computational mechanics - https://www.imperial.ac.uk/structural-integrity-health-monitoring/research/computational-mechanics/
• Structural reliability and Optimization - https://www.imperial.ac.uk/structural-integrity-health-monitoring/research/structural-reliability-optimization-and-cost-analysis/
Only the very best students will be considered for this position. Candidates should have (or expect to obtain) a good upper class or first class honours degree (or equivalent) in aeronautics or similar engineering disciplines. Strong background in numerical analysis (non-linear, dynamic) and excellent analytical and experimental skills are required. Programming experience is an advantage (e.g. Fortran, C++, Matlab, Python).
Start date: 1st October 2019
