Master’s internship proposal on Tribology of Bulk Metallic Glasses

The  TFCS  group of FEMTO-ST institute is studying  the tribological  performance of Bulk Metallic Glasses (BMGs) through experimental tests  in  close  collaboration with an european company producing BMGs of various compositions in series.

The trainee will reinforce the project team associated with this study in the framework of the TriboRAMA project beginning on February 2020.

The trainee will conduct sliding and rolling friction tests using two instrumented tribometers. These tests will be carried out on  various BMG compositions  and  by  varying contact  conditions.

Following these tests, the trainee will characterize the frictional response and the friction-induced surface modifications to o quantify the tribological performance of BMGs according to various contact conditions

Health monitoring of bio-based composites using embedded micro-machined sensors

Health monitoring of bio-based composites using embedded micro-machined sensors

This internship is part of the CONTACT project (Composite Structural Embedding CMUTs for SHM). The project is funded by the EUR EIPHI (http://gradschool.eiphi.univ-bfc.fr/). Its objective is to implement a process for the health monitoring of structures in-service, based on transient high frequency signals emitted during the modification of their integrity (acoustic emission technique).

The aim of this internship is to characterize the influence of the inclusion of miniature sensors on the microstructure and fatigue behavior of composites.

Duration : 6 months ( from February 2020)
