Category: PhD Student
Salary (gross): According to MSCA-ITN Work Programme 2018-2020
Weekly working hours: 40 hours/week
Contract type: Temporal
Duration: One year, extension will be considered in accordance to the performance of the researcher.
Functions to be developed:
The candidate will be hired in the framework of the Mathegram project, funded by the H2020 programme of the European Commission, MSCA-ITN 2018.
The basic research activities will involve the modelling and simulation of engineering processes involving the flow of a viscous fluid incorporating solid particles of different sizes accounting for fluid-solid-structure interactions and thermal coupling effects. The starting point will be the finite element and particle-based numerical techniques developed at CIMNE in recent years. Applications of the research will include thermomechanical processes in granular materials processes, flow of fresh concrete and particulate flows in civil and environmental engineering and the oil and gas industry, among others.
Also, as part of the MatheGram project, the candidate will be requiring to:
