PhD and postdoctoral positions on lithium batteries and composites fires at Polytechnique Montréal

Collaborative research project supported by five industrial partners with active research and development programs in the aerospace, fire safety and transport electrification sectors. The problems of fire resistance for batteries and PMCs used as firewalls share many similarities. In both cases, fire-driven failure is often controlled by feedback loops between the heat-driven outgassing of the solid material (be it the PMCs or a battery) and the gas-phase reaction of the combustible species exiting the surface exposed to fire.

PhD positions in Mechanical Engineering at Polytechnique Montréal

Three graduate student positions are available at Polytechnique Montréal in the field of fire resistance of composite materials. The use of materials based on lightweight composite and aluminum, although common in other parts of the aircraft, remains a challenge around the engines because of the fire resistance prescribed by certification requirements. The present project focuses on the use of such materials for the manufacturing of fan cases and bypass ducts for turbofan aircraft engines.
