PhD: Unraveling the effect of microstructure statistics on failure of multi-phase steels (UNFAIL) – Eindhoven University of Technology (the Netherlands)

September 30th, 2018|Categories: m2i, Modeling & Simulation, PhD|Tags: , , , , |

Introduction This PhD vacancy concerns the numerical part of the project to unravel how the statistics of phase distribution and phase properties govern the strength and ductility of advanced multiphase alloys. This includes (i) detailed crystal plasticity simulations to unravel the mechanics of the fundamental damage processes at the smallest scale, (ii) meso-scale crystal plasticity simulations including mechanism-based microstructural damage models of real microstructures as well as statistical variations thereof, and (iii) numerical modeling and simulation of polycrystals in three dimensions to predict failure criteria such as forming and fracture limit diagrams.
