Mr Oleg Birkholz from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany is visiting us at The University of Sydney. Oleg is working on the numerical aspects of modelling lithium-ion battery systems, via the discrete element method and resistor-capacity (RC) network. He will stay with us for two months and working on modelling electro-mechanical properties of granular […]
Mr Simon Shi started his PhD programme in Semester 2, 2016, and he will work on the micromechanics of partially saturated soils. Simon graduated with BEng (Honour) from School of Civil Engineering, The University of Sydney, 2015.
Dr Yi Yang, from Hong Kong Chu Hai College, is visiting us for three months (May to August, 2016). He is currently an assistant professor at Department of Civil Engineering at the College. He obtained his PhD on micro-macro mechanisms of non-cohesive granular media from Hong Kong Polytechnic University in June 2015. He is currently […]
Mr Noor Mohammad will start his PhD programme in Semester 1, 2016, and he will work on mass transport in unsaturated soils. Noor graduated with MEngSc degree from Monash University, 2015.
Mr Simone Pupeschi and Mrs Marigrazia Mascardiniare are visiting us from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany, for two months. They are working on thermo-mechanical behaviour of granular materials under extreme loading conditions (stresses, high temperature, and neutron irradiation), with the applications towards self-sustained fuel cycles for nuclear fusion reactors.
