The Metal Forming and Modelling group wishes to appoint a Research Associate to conduct fundamental research on metal forming at Imperial College London. Our research group covers a wide range of activities in theoretical, experimental and computational solid mechanics and materials research. We have significant contribution in the development of new forming technologies and novel modelling methods, pioneered by Professor Jianguo Lin FREng.
Leading this group is Dr Liliang Wang. The Metal Forming research area addresses the development of advanced metal forming processes to manufacture light weight structural components with complex shapes and high strength. The Modelling research area addresses fundamental problems involving the evolution of defects, damage and microstructure, and their effects on material deformation behaviour for a wide range of applications, many of relevance to metal forming industries.
