Soft Computing and HPC methods for non-destructive testing of aerospace composite materials

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The increasing introduction of composite materials in the aeronautical manufacturing implies that the non-destructive inspection techniques have become one of the factors that most significantly affect the production costs. The research activity concerns an innovative methodological approach, in which the inspection phase is decomposed into three sub-phases (3phase Inspection) and integrated with soft computing methodologies implemented on high performance computing (HPC) systems.

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!
