Abteilung: Institut für Werkzeugmaschinen und Fertigung (IWF)
Aufgaben: Der Zerspanungsprozess ist und bleibt einer der wichtigsten Prozesse in der Fertigung. Deshalb ist es von höchster Wichtigkeit die physikalischen Vorgänge des Prozesses zu verstehen und Resultate vorhersagen zu können, um langwierige Experimente durch zielgerichtete Analysen zu ersetzen. Damit werden Ressourcen und Energie einspart und insgesamt Entwicklungszeiten verkürzt und Kosten reduziert. Computer Simulationen sind dabei ein wichtiges Werkzeug, zumal durch Simulationen teure und zeitaufwändige Experimente vermieden werden können. Zusätzlich sind in Simulationen Resultate verfügbar die nur sehr schwer oder gar nicht messbar sind. Der Zerspanungsprozess ist jedoch wegen der sehr grossen Deformationen, hohen Temperaturgradienten und Scherraten in der Simulation höchst anspruchsvoll. Konventionelle Methoden wie die weit verbreitete Finite-Elemente-Methode (FEM) können solche Gegebenheiten nur mit grossem Aufwand repräsentieren, zumal die Diskretisierung ständig neu konstr...

Duties: Principal objective of this project is to develop rigorous mathematical and computational frameworks for determining compactly - represented, high-fidelity reduced models that accurately approximate the response of complex dynamical systems such as those describing the behaviour of pulsed combustion power systems. Such frameworks should include both a priori and aposteriori estimates of response error produced by such reduced models. An important objective of the project will be to provide accessible and scalable computational tools for model reduction that can be used by scientists and engineers in the analysis and approximation of dynamical systems
Minimum Requirements: The successful candidate will hold a PhD in either Mathematics or a related field and will be expected to have a strong background in numerical analysis and computational fluid dynamics. Expertise in model reduction will be an asset. The capacity for independent work and critical judgment are essential. The candidate will be expected on occasion to act as a bridge between members of the collaborating centers and play a role in mentoring students in the group
Preferred Requirements: Experience in the modeling of turbulent reactive flows is desirable
