Application deadline is February 28th, 2018

Please check out the following link (click here) on the NTNU website for more details about this PhD position.

For further information about the position, please contact: Professor Afrooz Barnoush, (afrooz.barnoush@ntnu.no), a prominent expert in the field of degradation of materials mechanical properties under simultaneous effect of mechanical loading and environments like hydrogen embrittlement or stress corrosion cracking.

PhD project description:

A PhD project focuses on researching hydrogen environment influence on the metallic parts built by additive manufacturing, concentrating on high stress-independent cracking. PhD project goal is to analyze environmentally assisted cracking (EAC) influence on the mechanical properties of the corrosion resistant metallic parts built by SLS. Investigate and optimize the research methods and characterization techniques of hydrogen interaction with the manufactured metallic part. Analyze crystal defects in nano- and micro- scales, observe slip mechanisms during mechanical loading in the initiation and propagation of cracking. Find the correlation between metallic parts manufacturing properties, surface preparation quality and hydrogen environment influence, characterize the stress corrosion cracking initiation in additive manufactured parts. PhD project will be experimentally based research, which will include laboratory work with the NTNU employees and other research partners.

Qualifications:

Applicants must hold a M.Sc. degree (or equivalent) within Material Science, Manufacturing Engineering or similar fields and have a good background knowledge of metallic materials, material properties, EAC, hydrogen embrittlement and additive manufacturing processes.

Advantages:

  • Experience in working with advanced material characterisation methods, especially FIB, SEM, EDS
  • Publications and conference attendance
  • Participating in the experimental based research projects or international studying experience
  • Enthusiam of working in experimental field and excellent work ethics with co-workers and administrative staff

Conditions of appointment:

The position is for 3 years and financed by the Department. The PhD candidate is obliged to take mandatory amount of courses through the PhD studying years.

The Network of Excellence (NoE) in Hydrogen Embrittlement

https://milosdjukichydrogen.files.wordpress.com/2014/05/network21.jpg

The Network of Excellence (NoE) in Hydrogen Embrittlement aims to strengthen scientific and technological excellence by developing an integrated and interdisciplinary scientific understanding of hydrogen degradation of engineering materials and their co-evolution with science, materials science, industry and society, and also by addressing the fragmentation of European and Worldwide research in this area.

The Network of Excellence in Hydrogen Embrittlement is structured so that it consists of the following branches:

  1. Hydrogen Embrittlement Group on LinkedIn
  2. Hydrogen Embrittlement  – Understanding and research framework Project
    on ResearchGate
  3. Hydrogen Embrittlement Group on Mendeley
  4. Hydrogen Embrittlement and Materials Science Blog on WordPress
  5. Research Topic titled “Hydrogen Embrittlement Mechanisms” (closed now) in collaboration with Frontiers in Materials Journal within Corrosion Research section
  6. Damage and Fracture Mechanism Group on LinkedIn
