PhD position: Microstructural characterisation of concrete degradation in the event of a nuclear accident

PhD position: Microstructural characterisation of concrete degradation in the event of a nuclear accident

The IMMOC project, supported by the French National Research Agency, aims at bringing new knowledge in the understanding of the interaction between molten metals/oxides and concretes for applications to nuclear power plants safety. Under these conditions, where the concrete is subjected to increasing temperatures, the microstructure and behaviour of the material are progressively degraded. This PhD offer concerns the experimental part of the project and aims to characterise the damage kinetics of the microstructure of the material subjected to high temperatures, using X-ray microtomography and nanoindentation.
