PhD International Scholarships at University of Belgrade, Serbia

The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering is inviting students to join the PhD Scholarships in Modeling and optimal design of refractories for high-temperature industrial applications for a low carbon society at the University of Belgrade.

The project’s objective is to derive new computational models for refractory materials, which will make it possible for the first time to simulate in-silico their behaviour over the whole working temperature range. The PhD student will focus on the study, the development and the implementation of Topology Optimization (TO) techniques to apply them to the optimization of refractory products.
