AbstractOne of the European Union’s objectives in climate change consists
of reaching net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Such perspective puts the metallic materials industry, as a large contributor to carbon emissions, under tremendous pressure for change and
requires the existence of robust computational materials strategies to enhance and design, with a very high confidence degree,
new metallic materials technologies with a limited environmental
impact. From a more general perspective, the in-use properties
and durability of metallic materials are strongly related to their
microstructures, which are themselves inherited from the thermomechanical treatments.
ProfileDegree: MSc or MTech in Metallurgy or Applied
Skills: Numerical Modeling, Metallurgy, programming, proficiency in English, ability
to work within a multi-disciplinary team.
