The European Green Deal aims at zero net greenhouse gasses emissions by 2050. The steel and chemical industries are responsible for a significant fraction of these emissions. Mechanical and chemical recycling of end-of-life waste streams is an important feature in reducing these emissions. While end-of-life steel can easily be recycled, this is not generally true for end-of-life plastics and other wastes. The project aims to reduce emissions by increasing the recycling of unrecyclable waste streams, thereby tackling multiple problems at once.

Within ESME, the mechatronics research team is looking for a qualified and motivated candidate to perform academic research on fiber optics and predictable physical models towards better thermal characterization of electric motors, targeting a PhD. In this research, the accuracy of (mainly) thermal models of electric motors will be improved using measured data on prototypes. For these measurements, fibre bragg gratings will be integrated in the different parts of the electric motors. Since these sensors are relatively new, many effort will be spent to gain insights in the mounting and calibration in order to obtain reliable and repeatable measurements. Using inverse thermal modelling techniques, the uncertainty on the parameters and states of (finite element) thermal model will be reduced. To limit the computational burden in the inverse process, suitable (parametric) model order reduction techniques, taking into account the multi-rate aspect of the multiphysics models, will be developed.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Student

We are looking for a starting scientist that is interested in preparing and submitting a Baekeland mandate application on a topic related to dietary additives in animals to reduce inflammatory responses in the gut. Baekeland mandates support basic research that – if successful – have clear economic objectives and offers added value to the company involved in the project. The joint University-industry research project is directed towards obtaining a doctorate (PhD) diploma. In the project we aim to evaluate novel dietary additives on intestinal alkaline phosphatase (IAP) activity in the intestinal tract. IAP has been shown to detoxify LPS on the mucosal surface, and thus consequently reduce epithelial barrier defects associated with LPS-induced inflammation. In addition, the project will focus on anti-oxidant activities of these dietary additives, as oxidative stress has been associated with inflammation, unfavourable microbiota shifts towards mucosal expansion of Gram-negative Enterobacteriaceae that thus contain LPS and consequently can cause health problems. The animal species of focus is meat-type poultry, as the performance of these fast-growing animals is highly depending on a beneficial diet-host-microbiota interaction, and the poultry industry is seeking for alternatives to antimicrobials that were commonly used in the past to promote gut health and reduce inflammation. This research project offers a combination of in vivo work, wet lab and dry lab work, ranging from animal experimentation, in vitro work with cell cultures, QPCR, NGS sequencing, immunohistochemistry and histology, and a variety of other techniques, depending on the project progress.

The Electrical Energy Laboratory (EELAB) at UGent is involved in a 4-year project “Digital twin for validation DT4V)”. When a company develops a new drivetrain, it must be validated: building prototypes and test them to be sure about well-functioning and lifetime. This costs a lot of time and money to the company. The main goal of the project is to avoid this long and costly procedure, by doing “virtual validation”. This means that we ‘ll predict performance and lifetime of a drivetrain that is not built yet (= not existing in reality). We will start from existing validated drivetrains and lots of measurements “from the field”. Then, virtual validation will be done in 3 scenarios: 1) change in load profile or ambient conditions: e.g. the drivetrain is used in tropic regions; 2) component replacement: e.g. another type of motor is used than in the validation tests, and 3) new family member: e.g. a scaled variant is developed that is 30% more powerful.

Ghent University is a top 100 university worldwide and one of the major universities in Belgium, with more than 44000 students and 15000 staff members. At the department of Electromechanical, Systems and Metal Engineering, we have an open vacancy for a PhD researcher in the mechatronics research group at the campus Kortrijk. The research in our group focuses on modelling, control and optimization of the electromechanical and control aspects of industrial machines, with an emphasis on using Industry 4.0 technologies such as machine vision, AI or digital twins. A digital twin is one of the key Industry 4.0 technologies. It can be defined as a digital replica of a physical system updated with actual sensing information and simulated in synchronism with its physical counterpart. Digital twins can provide deep insight in the behavior and condition of industrial machines, bringing considerable added value to the manufacturing industry. The creation of a digital twin involves properly determining its requirements, creating high fidelity simulation models, coupling with rich sensor data streams from the physical machine and time-critical execution on an edge or cloud platform. As digital twins are a new and promising concept in mechatronics, we have opened a vacancy for a strategic and challenging PhD position with the topic ‘Digital Twins of Mechatronic Systems in the Manufacturing Industry’ under the supervision of Prof. Jeroen De Kooning and Prof. Kurt Stockman. In this PhD, it is our intention to start from a CAD model of an industrial application, and upgrade it to a digital twin by combining a motion simulation with vision data. In the past years, the research group in Kortrijk has built up critical expertise and laboratory infrastructure to support this PhD.

About Ghent University, Belgium  –Official Website

Ghent University is a public research university located in Ghent, Belgium. It was established in 1817 by King William I of the Netherlands. After the Belgian revolution of 1830, the newly formed Belgian state began to administer the university. In 1930, the university became the first Dutch-speaking university in Belgium, whereas French had previously been the standard academic language in what was Université de Gand. In 1991, it was granted major autonomy and changed its name accordingly from State University of Ghent (Dutch: Rijksuniversiteit Gent, abbreviated as RUG) to its current designation.

In contrast to the Catholic University of Leuven or the Free University of Brussels, UGent considers itself a pluralist university in a special sense, i.e. not connected to any particular religion or political ideology. Its motto Inter Utrumque (‘In Between Both Extremes’), on the coat of arms, suggests the acquisition of wisdom and science comes only in an atmosphere of peace, when the institution is fully supported by the monarchy and fatherland.

Ghent University is one of the biggest Flemish universities, consisting of 44,000 students and 9,000 staff members. The University also supports the University Library and the University Hospital, which is one of the largest hospitals in Belgium. It is one of the greatest beneficiaries of funding from the Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO). Ghent University consistently rates among the top 100 universities in the world.
