Qualification Details

Applicants must have the following qualifications:

- strong computational skills and simulation experience (proficiency in Finite Element Analysis is a plus)

- a background in mechanical/aerospace/civil engineering, materials science, physics or a related area

- coding background and willingness to learn about deep learning, graph neural networks and their applications in physical sciences (past experience is a plus)

- an interest in modeling of mechanics and/or manufacturing of composites (past experience is a plus)

- the ability to work well in a collaborative setting

Responsibilities/Job Description

This postdoctoral research aims at exploring data-driven methodologies to establish the structure-process-property link in the context of fiber reinforced polymer composites used in aircraft structures and topology optimization of such structures to ensure minimal defect and thus maximum performance during service. Currently, the defect formation and their impact on the lifetime can only be predicted via computationally expensive simulations in deterministic settings. In this project we aim to create accurate and efficient constitutive materials models to quantify uncertainties. This will ultimately enable the acceleration of the simulations required for obtaining new structural designs through generative design algorithms based on process-property relations integrating product and manufacturing process optimization.

CAELESTIS main objective is to enable the EU aircraft industry to design and manufacture disruptive aircraft structures and engines with enhanced prediction capacities (product performance and manufacturability), to widen the design space and reduce the uncertainties potentially encountered along the product and engineering lifecycle, which are currently limiting their introduction into service.
