Flexible robotic system geared towards the inspection of surface integration

START: 10/2018

OPEN
Inspections for monitoring the manufacture of parts are unavoidable in industry. This is an area where, even today, inspection is being done manually, either through using penetrant liquids or magnetic-particle methods depending on the manufactured part. In any case, it concerns inspections which are not only completely manual but are also subjective, that"s to say, dependent on the operator performing the inspection.

Dynamic simulation of complex multi-body systems

START: 09/2018

OPEN
General framework and objectives A Multibody System is a mechanical model of a set of bodies, also called elements or links, which can in turn be rigid or flexible, interconnected in such a way that there is relative movement between them. It is therefore a very general term that encompasses a large number of systems, among which can be mentioned mechanisms, machines, vehicles of all kinds, and robots. The Dynamics of Multibody Systems is the theory that allows the kinematic...

Desarrollo y estudio de biomateriales para su uso en la industria del rotomoldeo

START: 10/2018

OPEN
El reto y el enfoque de la tesis doctoral se dirigen hacia el desarrollo de plásticos basados en biopolímeros para su uso en rotomoldeo. En dicho desarrollo será necesario crear modelos para predecir el efecto de diferentes aditivos en las propiedades finales del bioplástico, así como valorar experimentalmente los resultados. Resultará igualmente necesario relacionar dichas propiedades con el comportamiento real en proceso, de forma que se...

Use of intelligent materials for lifting and hoisting systems

START: 09/2018

OPEN

The project consists of developing components for the structural elements in lifting and hoisting systems in order to actively control vibrations, primarily for aspects related to the use of intelligent materials. Possibility of completing a doctoral thesis on this topic.

The candidate will be part of the Mechanical Design Group and work within a multidisciplinary environment.

Methodology dfx for goods and products of long life cycle and large size

START: 09/2018

OPEN
General framework and objectives The design methodologies are a series of indications and strategies to face the design in an orderly manner, evaluating the options generated to choose the optimal one. In recent years, the development and evolution of design methodologies has gone from simple guidelines for manufacturing to complete methodologies through the compilation of synthesis methods, which have then been extended as DfX methods to form the concept of a Design for Excellence.
