PhD project: Analytical & Programming Efficiency in Geotechnical Engineering Applications at KU Leuven

Within the Civil Engineering Department, the Hydraulics & Geotechnics Section (Campus Bruges, Faculty of Engineering Technology) and the Structural Mechanics Section (Campus Arenberg, Faculty of Engineering Technology) are currently seeking to recruit a highly enthusiastic and motivated person to pursue full-time doctoral studies in the field of dynamic Soil-Structure-Interaction. The sections are already collaborating in research projects including foundations for offshore wind turbines and floating energy converters, pile driving and installation techniques by means of theoretical developments and experimental approaches. Regarding the later, both sections are part of a collaborative national research project which aims to establish a testing site for pile foundations in Belgium.

Are you interested in deriving elegant, insightful, novel benchmark solutions for a wide range of typical complex SSI problems, and develop a step-change in the way software for SSI is implemented?
