This research will develop constitutive models to handle the mechanics of self-healing materials.
This project will develop constitutive models and finite element methods that can be used to simulate and predict the behaviour of self-healing cementitious materials. Strong background in computational methods and interest in material science is expected. There are several pathways possible for this research depending on the research interests and background of the applicant.
Applications are invited for researchers interested in joining a world-leading research group within the School of Civil engineering and pursuing further studies in the field of concrete structures. Background in civil/mechanical/aerospace engineering, and skills on numerical methods and/or programming, will be very useful. It is expected a strong commitment to academic research in the proposed field and the capacity to create and develop original approaches to tackle open questions. Interested researchers are encouraged to get in touch with Dias-da-Costa as soon as possible.
