Inclusive predictive model for martensite formation in steel at the microstructural level
A predictive model for martensite formation in steel at the microstructural level in 2D or 3D should consider the thermodynamics, the martensite morphology and hierarchical microstructure, the surrounding phases, and the micro-mechanical features involved in the formation of the product martensite phase from the austenitic matrix. To date, there are no models describing the combination of these aspects. This project consists of the development of such a model in the context of dual-phase steels:
1. To reproduce the 3D hierarchical microstructural formation of martensite and surrounding ferrite in dual-phase steels.
2. To apply micromechanical models for the development of strains on the micro-scale level considering the same microstructures.
3. To couple the hierarchical and thermodynamic description of the microstructure development with the micro-mechanical description.
We are searching for enthusiastic candidates holding an MSc degree in physics, chemistry, materials science, or a similar field. The candidate must have knowledge of physics of materials, solid state physics, solid-solid phase transformations, and mechanical behaviour. Moreover, the candidate should have:
• familiarity with the basics of continuum mechanics and more precisely, crystal plasticity modelling.
• an “academic attitude” with excellent analytical skills, initiative, inventiveness, curiosity, and critical thinking about the research approach and results.
• strong communication skills (high degree of English proficiency), ability to integrate, and good social behaviour.

Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering
The Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) of Delft University of Technology, undertakes coherent and innovative research dedicated to developing, producing, characterising, and manipulating materials, with a focus on metals. The aim is to develop fundamental understanding forming the basis for better performance and a longer life cycle with preservation of functionality, while at the same time optimising sustainable use of resources and minimising the environmental footprint.
The Microstructure section of the MSE Department, with five senior scientists and some 15 PhD students and post-docs, has a leading position worldwide in the field of microstructure control, based on both experimental characterisation and physical modelling.
