The compaction of particulate materials is one of the most important industrial processes. It is used to manufacture net or near-net shape components with complex geometries and high tolerance, and with souhaitable strength. The compaction process transforms a loose particulate material into a compacted product with a higher density.
The PhD thesis will take place at the Laboratoire de Mécanique et Génie Civil (LMGC)-CNRSUniversité de Montpellier-France in collaboration with the INRAE Montpellier and the University of Leeds. Highly motivated candidates with a master’s degree in physics or mechanics, or graduated from an engineering school, and interested in numerical modelling are encouraged to apply.
