Lattice structures are type of materials which their structures is usually combined from a repeating patterns or unit cells in small size scales to exhibit extraordinary mechanical properties in larger size scale. These structures have significant impact in reduction of weight, manufacturing time, and energy consumption in engineering systems while they represent appropriate mechanical performance. The aim of this project is to develop a robust data-driven framework to develop a constitutive model for lattice structures. The output of this project is a valuable tool to be used in the innovative industrial product design process in aerospace, automotive and biomedical industries.
The Mechanical Engineering Group at the School of Engineering and Digital Arts, Division of Computing, Engineering and Mathematical Sciences has a strong reputation in engineering design, digital manufacturing, sensing and instrumentation, robotics and mechatronics, and is engaged in a wide range of national, European and international research programmes.
This project is seeking a highly motivated PhD student to join the Mechanical Engineering Group to conduct research within a multidisciplinary environment. We need an inquisitive problem solver who is able to work autonomously and also function well in a research team. The candidate will be based in the School of Engineering and Digital Arts and will work under the supervision of Dr Amir Hosein Sakhaei
