Research Associate or Senior Research Associate in multi-scale analysis of composites
This post will develop new multi-scale numerical tools for the prediction of failure of composite materials and structures, based on a sound physical understanding of the underlying damage mechanisms. The work will run in close collaboration with researchers conducting experimental testing, which will provide essential information for model generation and validation. High quality numerical analysis is a crucial part of the process of understanding the failure process in composite materials and structures.
Based in the recently launched Bristol Composites Institute – the Advanced Composites Collaboration for Innovation and Science (ACCIS), within the Department of Aerospace Engineering, you will work on development of custom written codes to build complex models, application of commercial finite element software and development of user subroutines, reporting on results internally and to the industrial partner. You will have a PhD in Engineering / Materials Science (or closely related discipline) and good experience of finite element analysis techniques, programming and composites failure mechanisms.
This role is being advertised on a full time, open-ended contract for up to 2 years.
