Tailoring composite laminates with tow-level fibre hybridization using multiscale modelling

Project Description

If you are looking for an exciting research position in the area of advanced composite materials and computational mechanics, this is an excellent opportunity for you. We are inviting applications for a PhD studentship to conduct research on multiscale modelling of hybrid composite laminates. The successful candidate will join the University of Manchester and be part of the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering and the Aerospace Research Institute (ARI).

This project will explore tow-level fibre hybridization together with multiscale modelling to tailor the mechanical properties of composite laminates for structural applications. The aim is to develop a new modelling strategy to understand and optimize the behavior of fibre-hybrid reinforced composites and validate with micro- and macro-scale experimental characterization. The research will have significant impact on composite-rich structural designs such as in aerospace, automotive and wind energy sectors.

Areas of expertise: MACEMaPoS

Funding Notes

Funding is offered to support a PhD starting in April, July or September 2019. The duration of the studentship is for 3 years and covers both tuition fees and a stipend at RCUK-standard rate.

An applicant should have:
• A first-class or upper second-class honours degree (or equivalent) in a relevant discipline, such as mechanical/aerospace/civil engineering, material science or physics.
• Background or knowledge of Solid Mechanics, Finite Element Method and Composite Materials or relevant.
• Experience in computer programming (e.g. Matlab, Python, C++)
• Experience in finite element modelling (e.g. Abaqus)
• Good communication skills and time management.
