Job Description

In this project, we are interested in the development of material models to capture the fracture and failure of engineering materials, both in quasi-static and dynamic loading conditions. It is envisioned that the model will be able to regularise the strain-softening response in the numerical simulations, and to capture complex crack profiles under sophisticated loading conditions. The initial work will focus on quasi-brittle materials.


The applicant should have a good Bachelor’s degree in a discipline relevant to the project. The applicant should be proficient in 

  • Continuum mechanics
  • Non-linear finite element method
  • Nonlocal theory

with relevant experience in the following:

  • Commercial FE packages, particularly ABAQUS
  • Writing of subroutines for numerical implementation
  • Nonlocal gradient enhancement
