PhD Position in Material Mechanics, Sweden

Advertisement

The research within the Division of Material Mechanics ranges from simulation and modelling of chains of manufacturing processes, individual processes to material modelling. This can support the integrated design of manufacturing process and product. Of particular interest is material modelling as it is crucial when simulating manufacturing processes as they often cause changes in the material structure and corresponding changes in the material response. This includes the coupling of physical based flow stress models, criteria for fracture initiation, solidification details and other microstructure models.

Subject description
Material Mechanics focuses on the development of models for both the evolution of microstructures in, and the related thermomechanical properties of metals, which are applicable in simulations, particularly of technical processes.

Project description
The aim for this project is to simulate additive manufacturing, particularly powder bed fusion processes. The finite element method but also other tools for more detailed thermal analysis of the solidification behaviour will be used. The PhD student will focus on modelling AM of amorphous alloys.

Duties
The PhD studies include both course and research parts. The latter is carried out within a project where the aim is to simulate additive manufacturing, particularly powder bed fusion processes. The finite element method but also other tools for more detailed thermal analysis of the solidification behaviour will be used. The PhD student will focus on modelling additive manufacturing of amorphous alloys.

The PhD student may also be engaged in teaching or other department duties up to 20%. The time for the research is estimated to four years full time and is extended to five years due to the latter assignments.

Qualification
The PhD candidates should have 240 credits of which 60 credits on an advanced level within Mechanical engineering, Applied physics, or equivalent. The candidate should be very good in written and spoken Swedish and preferably also English. Knowledge and experience in Finite Element Methods and/or advanced computational methods is a strong merit. Industrial experience is also a merit as the project is in close co-operation with industry.
