At the Department of Civil Engineering, Aalborg University, Denmark, a postdoctoral scholarship is available under the research programme ‘Efficient Conversion of Renewable Energy using Solid Oxide Cells’. The research programme is sponsored by the Danish Research Council and is a joint effort between five Danish Universities and Risø National Laboratory. The goals of the project are to develop theoretical models and to carry out experimental investigations of fracture phenomena in thin multilayers. Solid oxide cells are built in stacks from a number of metal or ceramic layers including corrosion and reaction layers developing during service. Mechanical stability of these layers in service and during thermal cycling is required in order to manufacture cells of high reliability. The project shall lead to an enhanced understanding of the fracture mechanics involved for cracks propagating in layered materials including interface cracking. The project will include experimental studies of the development of corrosive layers and fracture under stack-relevant conditions and suitable theoretical modelling of the phenomena. The models may be based on linear elastic fracture mechanics or cohesive zone modelling dependent on interface morphology including roughness, plastic zone sizes, etc. It may also be relevant to include effects of stress relaxation caused by creep. The position will be available from March 1, 2006 or as soon as possible after this date. The scholarship is for one year, but with the possibility of extension for up to one more year. Applicants must hold a PhD degree or equivalent in Mechanical or Structural Engineering and must provide documentation for a relevant background in continuum mechanics and fracture mechanics. Applications should be sent to Professor, dr.techn. Henrik Myhre Jensen, Department of Civil Engineering, Aalborg University, Sohngaardsholmsvej 57, 9000 Aalborg, Denmark by February 17, 2006 (email@example.com). All material to be assessed must be enclosed and the preferred date of employment should be given. More information on Risø’s fuel cell programme can be found at www.sofc.dk
