ProTechTion - Sensor data assimilation supporting decision making in the assessment of embankment dams (ESR#2) #Engineering

Más información

A monitoring program provides measurements of different parameters including pore water pressure in different locations of a tailing dam. These data are obtained in near-real time from a wireless sensor network and have to be used to assess the integrity of the dam. The information obtained from the raw data is often insufficient for decision making and has to be complemented by the knowledge provided by a model. The objective of the project is to design computational tools that assimilate in real time the data obtained into a computational model. This will allow enhancing the quality of the information at hand and make educated decisions on the control and maintenance of the dam. The computational strategy to be devised in based on the use of reduced order models and different tools for model updating.


    Doctorate degree from both UPC·BarcelonaTech and Ecole Centrale Nantes
    Integration within the research group of sensor industry leader
    36 month full-time employment contract
    Additional mobility and family allowances
    Research supervision and training by recognised experts in computational mechanics from academia and industry
    Access to state-of-the-art research and computing facilities
    Training in transversal skills (e.g. communication skills, entrepreneurship)

Eligibility criteria

Applicants shall, at the time of recruitment by the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya · BarcelonaTech, be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers and have not been awarded a doctoral degree. Full-Time Equivalent Research Experience is measured from the date when a researcher obtained the degree, which would formally entitle him/her to embark on a doctorate, irrespective of whether or not a doctorate is or was ever envisaged.

At the time of recruitment by the host organisation, researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in SPAIN for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the reference date.
