PhD Scholarships: Up to 8 positions  in Advanced Composites Structures and their Manufacture

Project(s)

VARICOMP – SFI funded project 

The purpose of these studentships is to conduct structural mechanics research into composite material structures and their components with the aim of manufacturing technology demonstrators. The successful candidates will also work as part of a larger team within the SFI funded VARICOMP programme collaborating on experimental and design work.

Based in the enviable new composite laboratories at University of Limerick, VARICOMP aims to take advantage of both spatially and temporally variable composite material properties for structural applications.

Cyclic Plasticity of Additively Manufactured (AM) Metals: Experimental Investigation & Constitutive Modelling

Project(s)

Cyclic Plasticity of Additively Manufactured (AM) Metals: Experimental Investigation & Constitutive Modelling

This 4 year research project will investigate experimentally the elastoplastic behaviour of metallic materials produced via commonly used AM methods (e.g. selective laser sintering, selective laser melting), under cyclic loading, in the ultra-low, low and high cycle fatigue regime.

The study will cover an array of different materials, loading cases and histories, both in the uniaxial and multiaxial stress space. Moreover, the experimental results obtained will be utilised to develop and validate constitutive plasticity models capable to predict the cyclic elastoplastic behaviour and performance of the various AM metals, under ultra-low, low and high cycle fatigue loading.

The manufacturing industry in Ireland and the EU is experiencing significant expansion in the additive manufacturing (AM) domain, especially in the aerospace and biomedical engineering areas. This PhD shall equip the graduate will skills highly sought by the EU manufacturing industry.
