The Division of Solid Mechanics at Lund University is expanding and is looking for 4 new students for PhD projects, one in the area of granular mechanics and dynamics.
The PhD project focuses on developing and exploiting advanced x-ray characterisation methods to study the mechanics of granular material including ultrafast dynamic processes. The project will explore inter- and intra-granular kinematics, strains and stresses using x-ray tomography and 3D x-ray diffraction, as well as dynamic processes at very high strain/propagation rates using advanced high-speed 2D and 3D x-ray imaging. Experiments will be developed and performed at our in-house x-ray tomography facility as well as at the nearby MAXIV synchrotron and at international synchrotron facilities such as the ESRF in Grenoble, France.
