OFFER DESCRIPTION

Title of the PhD project: Computational Assessment and Optimization of Metallic Additive Manufacturing Processes

This project aims to the development of computational techniques for the numerical simulation and optimization of Additive Manufacturing processes.

The possibilities of Additive Manufacturing (AM) compared to conventional manufacturing are the cause of its great usefulness for designing new components and parts due to its flexibility and versatility. The performance of AM components is very much related to the manufacturing process optimization. Therefore, the numerical simulation and optimization of the AM process is the main goal of this proposal.

One of the main task of the PhD research is the development of a Reduced Order Model (ROM) of the melt-pool (both thermal and mechanical models) allowing for a great improvement of the computational time required for the thermo-mechanical analysis.

The prospective outcome of the thesis is to contribute in the development of the ROM-AM module within the in-house HPC software framework for the numerical simulation of AM processes.

The functions assigned to the candidate will be:

  • Complete a PhD on Structural Analysis at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya – Barcelona Tech. The candidate is expected to complete the PhD thesis in a maximum of three years.
  • Collaborate with various research groups within CIMNE and worldwide.
  • To publish a minimum of three papers in JCR journals during the PhD period, author and co-author articles in high-impact international journals.
  • Carry out quality research, training and management.
  • Participate on the dissemination and outreach activities associated with the project.
