PhD 08 - Discrete Element Method to support microstructure design of refractories

To conduct developments of numerical tools based on the discrete element method (DEM) for investigation of the relationships between microstructure and thermomechanical properties of model materials. These developments include debounding, thermomechanical coupling, crack-closure and anisotropic behaviours. These developments will lead to a “virtual numerical lab” able to provide tensile, dilatometry, fracture mechanics or thermal shock virtual tests for virtual characterizations. The related developments will be integrated to the free DEM software GranOO.

A 36 Months PhD starting in October 2022 and supervised between IRCER-Limoges (France) and IMERYS-Vaulx-Milieu (France)

PhD 13 - Performance prediction and reusability/recyclability assessment of refractory materials using online sensoring, machine learning and digital decision-making tools

Targeting to reuse refractory components from continuous casting process in safe condition, thermo-chemico-mechanical properties need to be estimated with non-destructive testing. Pertinent monitoring approach must be developed, first at laboratory scale, before field implementation. Machine learning methods will be evaluated to select the most viable for predicting thermo-chemical/mechanical properties of refractories based on non-destructive testing values.
