About the Project
In recent years, a number of candidate methods for dealing with very large deformations have emerged. The present project will focus on one of these, namely the Particle Finite Element Method (PFEM) which has shown a lot of promise in terms of solving real life problems in a robust and expedient manner (see references below). More specifically, the project aims to develop a scheme suitable for large-scale three-dimensional analysis. Although the applications of primary interest are in the geomechanics area, other applications including sheet metal forming and dynamic impact of quasi-brittle materials are also within the scope of the project.
The ideal candidate will have a background in civil or mechanical engineering with a strong interest in computational mechanics. Candidates with a background in applied mathematics, scientific computing and related fields are also encouraged to apply.
