The Division of Civil Engineering on the College of Birmingham is in search of to nominate a analysis fellow to work on the just lately funded UKRI analysis grant VPP-WARD ( ).

The profitable candidate might be accountable to steer the analysis works that appears into creating numerical fashions to simulate the influence of local weather anomalies and excessive eventualities on buried energy grids and their supporting floor. This might be finished by creating multi-phase modelling of floor and buried utilities utilizing finite ingredient evaluation in addition to creating physics-informed machine studying predictive fashions. By means of this we intend to seize influence of local weather change occasions comparable to floods and draught, and their consequence comparable to giant deformation floor actions, on buried utilities and distributed vitality sources. The predictive fashions might be used to estimate mannequin grid resilience and simulate future excessive environmental eventualities. The mission additionally goals to make use of knowledge from potential experimental set ups within the Nationwide Buried Infrastructure Facility (NBIF), the place out there.

Abstract of the function:

  • Work throughout the VPP-WARD analysis grants and supporting the mission workforce
  • Lead analysis works on creating numerical fashions
  • Analyse and interpret analysis findings and outcomes
  • Writing experiences, scientific journal papers and presenting at worldwide conferences primarily based on the mission findings
  • Contribute to licensing or spin out offers with demonstrated industrial success (comparable to revenues, asset or firm gross sales, IP generated) and/or public understanding of the self-discipline or related
  • contribute to writing future bids

Particular person Specification

  • First diploma in space civil engineering, the next diploma (or one close to to completion) related to floor engineering or equal {qualifications}
  • Expertise of finite ingredient modelling is important
  • Data of huge deformation FE evaluation is fascinating
  • Data of machine studying numerical strategies is fascinating
  • Skill of knowledge evaluation and knowledge presentation are important
  • Excessive stage analytical functionality
  • Skill to speak advanced data clearly
  • Fluency in related fashions, methods or strategies and skill to contribute to creating new ones
  • Skill to evaluate useful resource necessities and use sources successfully
  • Understanding of and skill to contribute to broader administration/administration processes
