The Faculteit Ingenieurswetenschappen, Department Mechanica van materialen en constructies, is looking for a PhD-student with a doctoral grant.
More concretely your work package, for the preparation of a doctorate, contains:
UPCYCLING OF POLYETHYLENE TEREPHTHALATE (PET) THROUGH MICRO-REINFORCEMENT FOR USE IN HIGH VALUE APPLICATIONS.
Micro-reinforced recycled polymers from a PET plastic waste stream are developed and their material and mechanical properties as well as processing performance are fully characterized. The hybrid composite material is used for high-performance and high added value applications i.e. in sports industry.
The project has two research partners UGent and Centexbel and a set of industrial partners covering the whole value chain.
Our VUB-MeMC research group focuses on aspects of experimental and numerical characterization of mechanical properties. The targeted knowledge leap is to get insight in the (micro-) mechanical properties based on most fit for purpose test configurations that will be designed and to achieve a validated CAE methodology for static stiffness and strength applied on these challenging complex material combinations. Experimental data analysis, supported by finite element models, will give insight in the performance of these novel materials and contribute to the general understanding of the long-term, creep and relaxation behaviour.
For this function, our Brussels Humanities, Sciences & Engineering Campus (Elsene) will serve as your home base.
