Fellowship & Grant details

Fellowship posted by Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (08/02/2014 02.46)

Creation of numerical models using a numerical/experimental approach for the investigation of the whole production process of castings made by metallic materials used for Oil & Gas applications

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The research fellow shall be involved in the process design (using numerical tools) of the whole casting process (numerical simulation of the pouring, solidification, cooling, shake out and consequent thermal treatment). In particular he shall focus the attention on the correct modelling of all the steps which compose the casting process (software to be used: MAGMA), validating numerical results by means of the comparison with experimental results coming from castings properly designed and manufactured. The availability of experimental results will give the research fellow the possibility of obtaining the main parameters used for tuning the numerical models (heat transfer coeff., thermo-physical properties of both the metal and the sand, etc.)

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!
