Project description

English EN

Training young scientists on modelling of highly flexible structures

Highly flexible slender structures like yarns, cables, hoses or ropes are essential parts of high‐performance engineering systems. The complex response of such structures in real operational conditions is far beyond the capabilities of current modelling tools that are at the core of modern product development cycles. Addressing this requires a new generation of brilliant scientists. Marie Skłodowska‐Curie funding of the THREAD project will bring together young mechanical engineers and mathematicians, who will develop mechanical models and numerical methods for designing highly flexible slender structures, and support the development of future virtual prototyping tools for products where such structures have a key role in functional system performance. The project will invest in transferable skills through secondments, and will also offer early‐stage researchers experience with industrial partners. Addressing fundamental modelling problems will ultimately enable the field to better meet the needs of different industries.
