About the Project
The concept of the BladeMesher software is described in the journal paper "Peeters, M., Santo, G., Degroote, J. and Van Paepegem, W. (2018). High-fidelity finite element models of composite wind turbine blades with shell and solid elements. Composite Structures, 200, 521-531."
The BladeMesher software is programmed in the Python language and counts more than 30,000 lines of code.
In this project, the BladeMesher software is further developed to include additional features, such as detailed modelling of adhesive joints (with cohesive elements), implementing support for more advanced finite element types (quadratic and multi-layer solid and solid shell elements), user-friendly Graphical User Interface (GUI) and export of data to other software packages (Hawc2, BECAS,…).
Only candidates with a Master or PhD degree should apply. The candidate should have a strong interest in software development and finite element modelling. The candidate should have strong programming skills and computational mechanics background.
