Students in their final year of the Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering are welcome to join us to carry out research activities relater to our areas of expertise. Thesis topics opportunities in collaboration with international research institutes, universities and industrial context are continuously available. A non-exhaustive list of project proposals is:
- Thermo-mechanical analysis of continuous casting processes of steel (FEM – Numerical – Industrial)
- The effect of a dental implant in the stress response of mandibular bone (FEM)
- Modelling of cyclic plasticity response of a tempered steel (FEM – numerical)
- Crack propagation in brittle materials in presence of residual stress (FEM)
- Dynamic behaviour of a sailing boat (FEM – Numerical)
- Development of a calculation code for the evaluation of residual stress depth profile by the ring-core method (Numerical)
- Mechanical behaviour of cellular materials obtained by Additive manufacturing (FEM)
- Structural integrity assessment of welded structures subjected to fatigue loadings (FEM – Industrial)
- Finite element simulation of fatigue delamination processes (FEM)
- Thermo-mechanical structural analysis of an induction furnace (FEM – Industrial)
Further details will be given upon request.
Opportunities to carry out internships and thesis projects in industry are also available.
SIMED accepts successful candidates to the Industrial and Information Engineering (IIE) PhD programme. Every year, a number of fully-funded or self-funded PhD fellowships are available Detailed information on the doctorate programme, selection process and other related matters are available on the doctorate website (IIE-PhD)
