Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee (IIT Roorkee) invites application for the position Junior Research Fellow
Title of project: Modelling, Simulations and Dynamic Fracture Behaviour of Composites under High Strain Rate Loading
Sponsor of the project: Armament Research Board (ARMREB),DRDO
Project position(s) and number: Junior Research Fellow (JRF),02 (Two)
I. B.Tech in Civil Engineering and M.Tech degree in Civil Engineering, preferably in Structural Engineering/Applied Mechanics. Candidates awaiting results for 4th semester of Master's program are also eligible to apply. Candidates must have qualified GATE exam.
II. The candidates with exposure and interest in Structural engineering, Fracture mechanics, modeling and simulation, Numerical simulations, FEM, Ansys Autodyne, ABAQUS, and programing software like MATLAB will be given preference.
Emoluments: Rs. 31,000 per month
Duration: 3 years
Job description: The project aims to design and optimize multi-layered composite structures and high- performance steel fibre reinforced concrete structures for resisting loads under high strain rates. Investigations will be carried out to characterize the fracture parameters and to quantify the damage under the above loading conditions. The candidate has to carry out the research work, planning and execution of project-related activities, prepare presentations, reports and related manuscripts, publication. For more details of work or any other queries, the principal investigator may be contacted.
