Postdoc in Computational Modelling of Life Extension and Maintenance of Composite Blades of Wind Turbines
Your overall focus will be to develop and validate computational models of repair of composite wind turbine blades, for the evaluation of post-repair lifetime, optimizing the repair and curing conditions. You will work with nearby colleagues, and with both academic and industrial partners in Denmark as well as abroad. Your primary tasks will be to:
- development of computational models of repair of wind turbine blades, using thermal and light radiation curing,
- evaluation of overall and post-repair life time of wind turbine blades, using finite element software Abaqus and Python programming language.
- analysis of the influence and materials defects on the lifetime and exploitation of wind turbine blades.
You are expected to have a PhD degree in Materials Science, Applied Mechanics, Mechanics, Mechanical Engineering or related disciplines, and have an experience or good knowledge of Mechanics of Materials, Computational Micromechanics, Finite Element Simulations (ABAQUS) as well as programming in a higher-level language (Python, including Numpy package). Demonstrated experience in preparing scientific publications in high level international journals is expected.
Knowledge and experience in the modelling of structural evolution of materials will be advantageous.
