Four-year EngD scholarship with the National Composites Centre: High level performance simulation of 3D fibre architecture composite


Project Description

3D fibre architectures offer several advantages over conventional 2D laminated composites. Most notable is the potential to address composites susceptibility to delamination, therefore providing components with increased damage tolerance and impact resistance compared to the two-dimensional counterpart.

The purpose of this project is to develop a methodology to predict the high level performance of 3D fibre architecture composites. The final goal is to have a process which determines the performance of a composites built from a 3D fibre architecture and associated infusion or percolation process. This requires an understanding of the processing and whether this has a significant effect on the final properties.

PLEASE NOTE: Applications are considered as soon as they are received, and the position will be allocated as soon as a suitable candidate is found.
