PhD student position in Multiscale Segmentation & Modeling of NCF Material

The main competencies at the department of Industrial and Materials Science are found in the areas of: Human-Technology Interaction | Form and Function | Modeling and Simulation | Product Development | Material | Production and in the interaction between these areas. The research develops the industrial process, from need to finished product while creating added value. To combine skills throughout the whole chain distinguishes the department both nationally and internationally. Here we gather internationally prominent researchers, in dynamic and outstanding research environments, as well as in national and international research networks.

http://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/ims/


Information about the research
Due to high specific stiffness and strength, and good fatigue properties, fibre composites are increasingly replacing metals in structural applications. Particularly within the aerospace, automotive, and wind turbine industry, fibre reinforced plastics are commonly used. In the design of wind turbine blades, almost purely uni-directional (UD) fibre composites (all the fibres are aligned in one direction) are used for the main spars which carry the gravitational and aerodynamics loads on the blade. These fibre composites are made from non-crimp fabrics (NCFs) that have a fibre bundle structure and are stitched to a thin supporting off-axis bundles layer in order keep them aligned during manufacturing and handling.  During the 20-30 years of life, a wind turbine blade experiences fatigue loads in the range of 50-500 million cycles because of the continuous rotation in addition to variation in the aerodynamic loading. The three key material parameters designing wind turbine blades are the axial stiffness, the compression strength and the fatigue resistance of the load carrying laminates. In order to improve those properties, detailed knowledge of the architecture of the reinforcement, i.e. the fibre, bundle and non-crimp fabric, as well as damage initiation and subsequent damage evolution is essential. Here, the stiffness and the compression strength are mainly governed by the fibre misalignment of the uni-directional fibres while the fatigue performance of the uniform laminates are controlled by the secondary oriented backing bundles as well as local fibre arrangement in the load carrying bundles. Even though the backing bundles are only introduced for handling and manufacturing reasons, it has been shown [1], that cross-over backing bundles with the load carrying uni-directional bundles are a key initiation point for progressive tensile fatigue failure.

In order to analyze, understand and improve NCF based composites, non-destructive testing methods can be used that rely on X-ray computational tomography. Development of case-specific automatically segmentation tools are required to fully utilize these methods. In [2] a segmentation algorithm for segment the fibre architecture inside the fibre bundles has been developed. In addition, tools for segmenting the three-dimensional bundle structures and the fatigue damage are required to achieve the full potential of the 3-D x-ray tomography data. Tools which are in the progress of been developed by DTU Compute. Based on those tools, a multi-scale finite element model will be developed with the purpose of predicting the mechanical performance of existing as well new suggested non-crimp fabrics. Thereby, it is expected to be able to improve the stiffness, the compression strength as well as the fatigue performance with the end goal of being able to produce lighter or longer wind turbine blades and thereby decrease the cost of energy of wind power.

A multi-scale segmentation of the bundle and fibre structure  will be developed where the fibre segmentation inside the bundle structure will focus on the transverse and axial fibre arrangement as well as the resulting fatigue damage evolution.  Based on the segmentation of the 3-D bundle structures from a large field of view x-ray CT scan and a segmentation of the microstructural fibre/matrix architecture of a zoomed field of view scans inside the bundles, a multi-scale finite element will be built as sketched in reference [3]. The finite element model will be based on x-ray scans performed at several regions in order to confirm their representability of the structure. By analysing volumes at the fibre scale, relevant parameters will be extracted and input into the homogenized bundle structure. During the applied PhD-project, a 3-D finite element model of an x-ray based bundle structure will be developed where the mechanical properties of the bundle material will be based on micromechanical models of the physical fibre/matrix structure. The micromechanical model will be used in order to understand the failure mechanism in addition to making it possible to predict the effect of change of the fibre and bundle architecture on the stiffness, compression strength and fatigue given lifetime.

Major responsibilities
The person filling this position will participate in research as outlined above and will be conducting mainly computational modeling. During the study, the PhD student will be expected to develop skills in the following:

– Micromechanical modeling of the composite microstructure to be used as a sub model in the multi-scale method
– Multi-scale modeling of the global composite test samples with an iterative link to the microstructure via micromechanical modeling
– Techniques of transfer segmented structures in to a multiscale finite element model of a composite on both the non-crimp fabric (3-D bundle structure) level as well as on the sub-bundle (fibre/matrix) level

Segmentation of damage: In order to quantify the 3-D initiation and evolution of fatigue damage, algorithms and software for segments will be explored.

– Segmentation tool of the micro- and meso-structure on the fibre and bundle level: The fibre architecture inside the bundles as well as the 3D bundle structure of the non-crimp fabric need to be segmented for analysis and quantification and later modeling. Used together with mechanical testing, relevant quantification element will be identified.

– X-ray tomography of polymer-based fibre reinforced polymers, including using in-situ stress rigs in order to improving the visibility of fatigue damage.

Position summary
Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of five years.

PhD student position in Mission-Critical Wireless Communication

8_Chalmersplatsen-1.jpg

At the Department of Electrical Engineering, we conduct internationally renowned research in communication systems, biomedical engineering, antenna systems, signal processing, image analysis, automatic control, automation, and mechatronics. We offer a dynamic and international research environment with about 150 employees from more than 20 countries, and with extensive national and international research collaborations with academia, industry and society. The department provides more than 70 courses, of which most are included in the Master’s Programs ”Communication Engineering”, ”Biomedical Engineering”, and ”Systems, Control and Mechatronics”.

Read more at www.chalmers.se/en/departments/e2

Information about the research
The overall goal of the project is to acquire knowledge about fundamental limits and design principles for wireless communication systems with guarantees on timely delivery of data. We will focus on the important and challenging case of sporadic transmissions of short packets, as this is urgently needed for emerging applications in automated driving, factory automation, health care, and other critical applications. There exist crucial knowledge gaps in this field: we still do not know what the fundamental limits are for trading timelineness against radio resources (i.e., bandwidth and power of transmitted signal), certainly not for multiterminal networks, but not even for all single-link systems. Hence, it is likely that today’s designs are severely inefficient or incapable of meeting the application needs, which could cause harm to people, waste resources, and delay the transformation into a sustainable, automated society. We intend to drastically reduce these knowledge gaps by executing the research program. Specifically, we will:

  1. Develop auxiliary procedures (packet detection, time-frequency synchronization, channel estimation) with unprecedented efficiency and specifically tailored for short-packet transmission over time-varying channels
  2. Develop a solid theory for design and benchmarking communication systems with timeliness from first principles by advancing short-blocklength information theory into uncharted territories
  3. Provide urgently needed, realistic and easy-to-use models for characterizing latency of short-packet transmission over wireless systems to be used by cloud and core network researchers and engineers.

This will be done by relying on tools of communication theory, signal processing, and information theory, the area of expertise of the project supervisors, Profs. Erik Ström and Giuseppe Durisi, and our main collaborator Prof. Urbashi Mitra, Univ. of Southern California.

Major responsibilities
Your major responsibility as PhD student is to pursue your own doctoral studies. You are expected to develop your own scientific concepts and communicate the results of your research (verbally and in writing) in major journals and conferences. In addition, the position also includes teaching on undergraduate and MSc level, or other departmental duties, of up to 20 percent of full time.

Position summary
The position of PhD student at Chalmers University of Technology is a full-time temporary employment, with a competitive monthly salary and full social benefits, limited to a maximum of four years plus teaching and other departmental duties. There are no tuition fees for PhD studies at Chalmers. The starting date is tentatively May 2019.

After completing PhD studies at Chalmers University of Technology, you will be in great demand from Swedish as well as international industry, and you will have an excellent basis for further academic research as well. Candidates with any nationality are welcome to apply.

Postdoctoral position in Reduction of Propeller Noise for Future Electrical Aircrafts

8_Chalmersplatsen-1.jpg

Postdoctoral position in Reduction of Propeller Noise for Future Electrical Aircrafts

The department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences (M2) conducts fundamental and applied research in all modes of transport to achieve sustainable technological solutions. M2 holds one of Sweden’s most extensive simulator centre for navigation and propulsion of ships, as well as world class laboratories within combustion engineering and wind tunnels. The department also offers and contributes to bachelor and master programs in areas such as Shipping, Automotive and Mechanical Engineering to mention a few. In addition, professional education is performed on both a national and international level, with specific designed mission training for different social actors, within our ambition for a lifelong learning. The department continuously strives to establish a cooperation between academia, industry, and society, with a great focus on utilization. M2 is characterized by an international environment with employees and students from around the world, as well as outstanding research and world class education. M2 consists of seven different divisions within the areas of engineering and maritime sciences, and one division of administration and support.


The Division

The Division of fluid dynamics carries out research in a wide range of applications such as aerospace (which is largest), automotive, wind power, hydropower, medicine, process industry, vehicle aerodynamics, shipping, and bio-mechanics. Almost every single research project is carried out in cooperation with a company. We do both numerical simulations and experiments. We develop our own in-house CFD codes for both incompressible and compressible flow, aero and vibro-acoustics as well as system analysis of gas turbines and we are very active in the OpenFOAM community. We have a fully equipped laboratory with three large wind tunnels, full set of PIV and IR imaging equipment. We do research on turbulent incompressible and compressible single and multiphase flows through numerical and experimental research and develop new and improved turbulence and multiphase models and experimental techniques for both fundamental and real-world flows. We frequently build dedicated experimental facilities in collaboration with industry in order to better understand fluid flow details. The division also works on flow induced noise applied to aerospace and automotive. In the turbomachine group, the research is focused on turbomachinery and propulsion engineering, developing new fluid machinery and gas turbine system analysis. The research also includes air traffic management

Information about the project
The Department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences at Chalmers University of Technology invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral position starting in Spring 2019 (not later than July 1). The successful candidate will be offered a two-year employment at Chalmers in the Division of Fluid Dynamics.

Background to the project
As a new way for transportation, electric aircrafts have been attracting extensive attention due to low CO2 emission. However, low noise emission is crucial for electrical aircrafts to be accepted to transport in urban areas. Electric propulsion systems therefore need to be improved to reach this goal. Since the propellers of the systems are known to dominant the noise generation, we are doing research on reduction of propeller noise at Chalmers, particularly for electric aircrafts.

Boxprop, developed by Prof. Grönstedt’s group at Chalmers ( US patent, “Air propeller arrangement and aircraft”) can be one concepts for the next generation of aircraft propellers. Several recent studies by Prof. Grönstedt’s group have shown that this concept has high potentials to improve the propulsion efficiency and noise emission. For more info, see

http://www.tfd.chalmers.se/~lada/slides_boxprop.pdf

Aims
This project aims to explore the potential usage of Boxprop for future short-range electrical aircrafts as a future public urban transportation service. The feasibility of Boxprop will be addressed and demonstrated based on numerical simulations and experiments. The aeroacoustic and aerodynamic performances of a set of propellers, which are designed with different geometrical parameters and rotational speeds, will be investigated. The findings will be used to improve the existing propeller configurations.

Methods
A high-fidelity computational fluid dynamics (CFD) method, detached eddy simulation (DES), will be employed in the flow simulation. This method can well resolve turbulent structures at high Reynolds numbers but consumes much less computational resources than direct numerical simulation (DNS) and large eddy simulation (LES).

The Ffowcs Williams and Hawkings method (FW-H) will be used in the noise prediction. The FW-H method belongs to the family of the acoustic analogy originally proposed by Lighthill (1956). An apparent advantage of the FW-H method is that it separates the aeroacoustic and aerodynamic simulations. Therefore, numerical errors in the aerodynamic simulation will not contaminate the aeroacoustic prediction.

The near- and far-field noise levels of the configurations at various rotational speeds will be measured in an anechoic chamber. The ambient air in the chamber is quiescent to make the free-stream velocity zero. Operations with multiple propellers will be tested to explore the interaction between propellers.

Measurements
The noise measurement will be carried out at the anechoic chamber at the division of Applied Acoustics at Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering in Chalmers. See

https://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/ace/research/research-laboratories/Pages/Acoustic-Laboratory.aspx

Prof. Wolfgang Kropp is the head of the lab. The dimensions of the chamber are 10 m x 10 m x 8 m. The background noise level is controlled below 17dBA. The operational frequencies range from 75 Hz to 10 kHz.

Participants
The following senior researchers will be involved in the project:

Prof. Lars Davidson, Department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences (project leader), http://www.tfd.chalmers.se/~lada/

Prof. Tomas Grönstedt, Department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences, http://www.chalmers.se/sv/personal/Sidor/tomas-gronstedt.aspx
