The Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics is one of 57 institutes of the Fraunhofer-Society. As one of the leading organizations for applied research in Europe it offers ambitious scientists challenging tasks coupled with responsibility and room for creativity.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics ITWM in Kaiserslautern, Germany is offering
Scholarships for postgraduate students on model reduction for coupled electro-acousto-mechanical FE-models as basis of controller design
Fraunhofer ITWM is one of the biggest research institutes for applied mathematics in Europe.
You will participate in the Marie Curie Research Training Network Smart Structures set up by 14 European universities, research institutes, and companies and offering multiple interdisciplinary training activities, visits, and contacts to industry.
Your task is to apply and extend the Fraunhofer Model Reduction Toolbox (MRT) for reducing finite element models of coupled electro-acousto-mechanical systems appearing in automotive and aerospace industry. The underlying application is virtual prototyping in the field of active noise control by actuators made from smart materials such as piezo ceramics. Reducing the complexity of FE models is essential for both, controller design and performance estimation within optimizations. On the one hand, certain reduction algorithms for large systems with high damping, non-linear behaviour, or frequency dependent boundary conditions have to be investigated, extended, and implemented. On the other hand, active designs have to be optimized in an ANSYS-Matlab environment.
