Program Code: 1661


A multiscale numerical modelling technique and model and micromechanic analytical method will be developed in this research to model the effective macroscopic properties of Nanophotonic composites in this research. Based on the model, parametric studies will be conducted to study the effect of a series of geometry of the cells such as the shape and topology of the unit cell to achieve the most optical structural design for the metal material with the most desired properties. The candidate needs to have good academic backgrounds on Engineering Mechanics and numerical methods.
