Modelling for Metal Additive Manufacturing


   School of Engineering and Information Technology

   Applications accepted all year round  Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

About the Project

The PhD project is within the broad scope of ‚Modelling for Metal Additive Manufacturing‘. There is potential to explore a range of different topics suited to the student’s interest and skillset. This may include but not limited to

  • processing-microstructure-property relationships in metal additive manufacturing
  • thermodynamics of metal additive manufacturing
  • microstructure evolution during metal additive manufacturing
  • mechanical behaviour of additively manufactured materials under different types of mechanical loading

The topics include model development and optimisation (in-house code, commercial finite-element software, open-source software, and programming from scratch).

The project will be performed under joint supervision.

Whom are we looking for?

We are looking forward to the applications of candidates who are enthusiastic about science and engineering and to offering them an opportunity to use their theoretical knowledge in application-related tasks. Personal initiative and creative ideas are welcome and encouraged.

The candidate should hold an undergraduate qualification in a field relevant to the proposed area of research, including Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science & Engineering. Software Engineering degree might also be considered if the candidate is motivated to get knowledge in the above-mentioned fields. The PhD fellow must have experience with simulations and programming (ideally C++).
