The postdoctoral fellows will perform cutting-edge research in methods and applications related to data science.
Weld microstructure evolution
Currently, weld testing is done when larger quantities of a trial material are available. To capture potential problems and solutions for acceptable weld behaviour in the earlier stages of material development, we aim to develop a model that can predict weld microstructure evolution during the most common automotive joining processes. We will assess whether the through-process models, developed for the metal production route, can be adapted to describing the influence of welding on local structure and mechanical properties. To significantly increase computational speed, we will examine the application of a cellular automata (CA) model to the non-equilibrium conditions during welding. To assess the strain and stress distributions, we will also focus on the application of plasticity models.
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:
• affinity for computational calculation as well as a solid background on mathematics and numerical methods.
• 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.
Delft University of Technology (the TU Delft) is a multifaceted institution offering education and carrying out research in the technical sciences at an internationally recognised level. Education, research and design are strongly oriented towards applicability. The TU Delft develops technologies for future generations, focusing on sustainability, safety and economic vitality. At the TU Delft you will work in an environment where technical sciences and society converge. The TU Delft comprises eight faculties, unique laboratories, research institutes and schools.
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 Joining and Additive Manufacturing section of the MSE department has a strong track record in welding technology and metallurgy and is currently developing the research field in additive manufacturing. The research of the group follows both experimental and numerical approaches to obtain a better physically-based understanding of the phenomena encountered.
