Mechanical characterization of eco-friendly fiber cement composites made ​​of basalt and aggregates recycling

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The aim of this research project is the mechanical characterization of highly perfroming composite components. They will be tested inside the Laboratory of Mechanics of the Department of Mechanical, Energetic and Management Engineering - DIMEG - at University of Calabria. Experimental activities will be supported by both analytical and numerical study for indetification of micromechanics laws, aimed at relating the mechanical properties of the composite componets to the mechanical properties of their characteristic elements (matrix and fibers).

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
