    Dear Thermal Spray Community!

    Fully funded PhD and Master's MSc positions at the University of Sherbrooke (Canada).

    Project title: High-speed blow forming of aluminium sheets

    Summary: This process, which exploits the superplasticity of an alloy specific to Verbom (industrial partner for the project), consists of spraying a solid lubricant on the sheet, preheating the sheet and shaping it against a mold using the pressure of a hot gas at a high rate, compatible with the needs of the automotive industry.

    In particular, the team will tackle the undesirable interfaces phenomena occurring between the mold and the aluminum sheet by proposing various coatings.

    Motivated candidates with a background in chemical, materials or mechanical engineering can submit a motivation letter and a CV to Prof. Jocelyn Veilleux (jocelyn.veilleux@usherbrooke.ca).
