PhD position summary/title: PhD Position – Numerical Modeling of the Spark Plasma Sintering (SPS) of Multi-Material 3D Structures.

Spark Plasma Sintering (SPS), also referred to as Field Assisted Sintering Technique (FAST), is sintering process that uses Joule heating and pressure. In our lab, we focus on sintering of multi-material parts. Modeling and simulation of this process is a complex task for which a coupled electric-thermal-mechanical field problem needs to be solved. Within the numerical simulation framework of SPS, one of the main complexities stems from the electrical, thermal, and mechanical behavior of the materials and interfaces at different time-length scales that significantly influences the choice of constitutive modeling approaches. The ultimate goal of this project is to address these issues and provide a new mechanism for the design and optimization of SPS/FAST processes. To accomplish this challenging task, we seek a highly motivated PhD candidate who will support us in developing new and extending available models to simulate the multi-material SPS process.

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral position: FishPath – Turbulent eddies to create paths for safe downstream migration for salmonids and eel past hydropower intakes.

The FishPath project aims at developing cost-effective measures for safe downstream passage for important fish species at hydropower structures. The novel idea is that knowledge on fish behavioural responses to turbulent eddies can be used to develop guidance systems that create alternative migration pathways for fish around hydropower plants and other water intakes. To this end, the project investigates interactions between fish and turbulent eddies created by innovative elements at small-to-large scales, develops turbulent Eddies-based behavioural fish Guidance Systems (EGS) based on a combination of such elements and finally provides a manual for cost-effective design, implementation and maintenance of EGS for safe downstream fish passage at intakes. The target fish species are Atlantic salmon, trout and European eel.

PhD position summary/title: PhD researcher “Digital matching of stakeholders for reused construction materials”

This PhD student will develop a digital matchmaking service for AEC stakeholders, building projects, and materials in order to increase the uptake of circular economy principles in design decisions for the built environment on a large scale, globally. To do so, digital innovations from other sectors will be applied to the AEC sector in order to augment the skills of AEC players, including Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms and blockchain technologies. The core idea is to connect the end-of-life of buildings with the start-of-life of other buildings by making the reuse of building materials more effective, user-friendly and wide-spread. Disrupting the current state of the construction sector’s value chain, this project will develop a data-driven process towards a digital “de”fabrication design approach.

This newly developed method will be used to carefully disassemble the building materials, store them, and reuse them in new construction and foster urban mining. Image-driven data intelligence will be used to inventory materials available for reuse. To do so, sensing and scanning tools (camera-equiped drones, virtural reality equipment, etc.) and Building Information Modeling (BIM) will be used. Disrupting the current state of the construction sector’s material supply, this project will develop a data-driven, intelligent process towards a digital “de”fabrication design approach.

PhD position summary/title: PhD position: Risk and reliability assessment of future infrastructures for carbon capture, storage and utilization (CCUS).

Evidence that the anthropogenic alteration of the earth carbon balance is leading to climate change clearly indicates the necessity to find new routes for energy provision to achieve no-carbon emission by 2050 and keep global warming below 1.5 °C. Within this framework, CCUS supply chains are fundamental to achieve net-zero emissions in “hard-to-decarbonize” industrial sectors. However, the potential of CCUS supply chains can be unlocked by designing a cost-competitive and reliable CO2 network that connects the emission sites with the storage and the utilization sites. The design of such infrastructure is a complex problem due to several factors, such as the scale of the system, the technologies involved, and the uncertainty associated with the system’s future evolution

In light of the Paris Agreement of 2015, several countries recently committed to reaching carbon neutrality within a few decades, e.g. by 2050 in the case of Switzerland. In addition to ambitious action for emission reduction, reaching this goal will likely require negative emission technologies, such as Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) and Carbon Capture and Utilization (CCU). However, major hurdles for their deployment remain, and the feasibility of industrial-sized CCS/CCU applications remains contested. From a policy point of view, especially the economic and political feasibility need to be considered, given the immense financing needs and acceptance challenges of CCS/CCU.
