Project Description

The PhD candidate will work on the development of a methodology that allows a model based virtual sensing of relevant parameters to feed concept models of joints to allow a cheap, yet accurate modelling of assembled structures. The approach will be validated experimentally on three levels, being coupon-, component- and system level, grafted in current-day industrial developments in the field of lightweight structures for automotive and industrial machinery.

All candidates must be fluent in spoken and written English. The R&D is highly multidisciplinary.
