Lafarge, France – Summer Intern, Logarithmic creep of cementing materials

Position: Summer Intern – Logarithmic creep of cementing materials

Position: Summer Intern – Logarithmic creep of cementing materials

Location: Saint-Quentin-Fallavier (30 km east of Lyon, France)

About the company
Lafarge Research Center is the World’s leading research facility in building materials: it brings together 250 researchers from a dozen different nationalities organised around competency groups. These researchers work on understanding the physical and chemical mechanisms governing the behavior of the Group’s materials and the development of new technologies to meet major construction challenges.

Internship description
Topic: Logarithmic creep of cementing materials: conclusion on how to link the indentation test to the conventional compression one.

Missions: Creep of cementing materials, after a transient phase, can be described by a logarithmic function of time characterized by two parameters: the creep modulus and the characteristic time. The experimental determination of these parameters with compression test on concrete requires very long time tests up to years. Some recent research works suggest the use of indentation test, a very fast technique which allows determining the creep parameters of the material within a time of some minutes only. For concrete, the indentation test is initially realized on the cement paste to determine its creep parameters. The creep modulus of the concrete is then calculated from that of the cement paste by homogenization. However, the major problem of this technique lies in the fact that the characteristic time measured is not comparable to that obtained with conventional compression test.

Two solutions are possible:
– “Hybrid” solution: Realization of short time compression test on concrete in order to determine the characteristic time of non-logarithmic transient phase while the creep modulus is already fixed thanks to the indentation.
– Analysis solution: Search for a possible correlation between the characteristic times of the cement paste measured by indentation and conventional compression tests, in incorporating the influence of other mechanical parameters of the material (modulus, strength, … ).

In this context, the training was designed to:
– Determine, from the experimental data base, the minimum time duration of compression test which would be realized in addition to indentation test in order to reproduce properly the creep within a given time. This will allow concluding the gain of time compared to conventional compression test.
– Analyze the data base in order to conclude on the existence or not of a correlation between the two characteristic times measured by indentation and compression tests.

Requirements
Years: Sophomores, Juniors, Graduate Students
Majors: Operations Research, Computer Science, and Materials Science, Civil and Environmental Engineering, other relevant majors
Skills: Numerical analysis, programming (knowledge of Python is appreciated)

A well-qualified candidate would be: interested by physical chemistry or organic chemistry.

Position: Electronics Engineering Intern

Location: Princeton, NJ

About the Electronics Engineering Group
The Electronics Engineering Group at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) is a small, highly motivated, innovative, hands-on team. Individually and collectively we have a very broad range of mixed signal, embedded systems, software and signal processing design experience. Our electronics devices and systems monitor, control and protect the country’s leading fusion energy research experiment. The National Spherical Torus Experiment (NSTX) is being enhanced to significantly expand the operational space for plasma conditions that are essential for next step Spherical Torus (ST) engineering and scientific development. We’re keeping up by developing new and upgrading existing hardware and software. We’d like your help!

About the Experience
Next summer there will be a multitude of revamped, modernized and completely new projects necessary to get the $94,000,000 upgrade to NSTX back up and running.

One project we need help on is developing an innovative “smart sensor” that combines high speed digitization, raw data storage and real-time data analysis of plasma temperature and pressure. Data from the “smart sensor” needs to be communicated to a Controller over a high bandwidth, addressable bus. This Controller needs to be capable of further data processing and real-time transfer of information to NSTX’s Plasma Control computer. Non real-time Controller features include raw data archiving from each “smart sensor” and off line data analysis. Sound interesting? An award winning plasma physicist thinks so and is counting on us.

About You
Analog, digital, RF, embedded processors, robotics, firmware, hardware, software, DSP, FPGA, LabVIEW, – still reading? EXCELLENT! However, your most important characteristic is to not be afraid to bring fresh ideas and techniques to advance the functionality, features and deliverability of electronics key to the leading plasma fusion experiment.

Years: ALL!
Majors: Computer Science, Electrical Engineering
Other: Appropriate work authorization and VISA

A well-qualified candidate would be: a hands-on problem solver.

Paid internship?

About the program
The Ruhr Fellowship Program connects highly motivated students in the United States with a unique experience to expand their portfolio and networks to one of the most dynamic and technologically advanced areas in Germany. As Germany’s “Cradle of Industry”, the Ruhr Area has come to represent creativity and innovation with its internationally renowned companies, universities and research institutes.

From June 1st through July 31st, you will get to know the German higher educational system through a one-month culture and leadership program as well as the German work environment in a challenging one-month internship with one of the leading German companies and round-table discussions with executives representing a variety of German global players.

The Ruhr Fellowship Program is being organized by the Initiativkreis Ruhr and the universities of the Ruhr Academic Triangle.

The Initiativkreis Ruhr (http://www.i-r.de/) represents more than 70 of the most important and influential companies in the area, such as E.ON, RWE, Siemens, Evonik Industries, ThyssenKrupp and Deutsche Telekom. Together these companies employ around 2.25 million people worldwide and generate sales of about 630 billion euros, and their executives make up the Initiativkreis Ruhr as personal members. With future-oriented strategies and real-world concepts, the Initiativkreis relies on the creative strength of its cluster of economic know-how. This cooperative effort yields highly renowned projects for the development of the Ruhr metropolitan area and the industry as a whole.

Germany’s Academic Triangle (http://www.con-ruhr.org/) is a consortium of 3 Universities – TU Dortmund University, Ruhr University Bochum and the University of Duisburg-Essen – all located within 20 minutes of one another, along the Ruhr River. This is Germany’s largest Academic hub and home to 4 Fraunhofer Institutes, 3 Max-Planck Institutes and 18 Collaborative Research Centers selected for funding through the highly competitive DFG (German Research Society) process. The alliance of the three universities brings together over 100,000 students and over 6,000 researchers and professors to create a unique interdisciplinary approach and cutting edge research opportunities.

Your profile
You are currently enrolled in your sophomore or junior year in an engineering, science or business degree program at Princeton University. You enjoy challenges and problem-solving, and you can easily adapt in an intercultural environment. You are interested in getting to know the Ruhr Area culture as well as expanding your personal global network and considering working later in a global environment. German language skills are not necessary; however previous experience in Germany or with the German language can be advantageous.

Your Ruhr Fellowship scholarship would include (June 1 to July 31):

-Flight stipend (worth 600 EUR, i.e. ~ 785 USD)
-German Language and Culture Seminar Program at the host universities (including excursions) in June
-Pairing with a German company for a one-month internship and project in July

The Ruhr Area
The Ruhr Area is a dynamic and exciting place to be. With around 6 million people, it is one of Europe’s most important metropolitan areas which also featured the European Capital of Culture in 2010. At the same time, half of the space is green – a landscape of forests, parks, fields and beer gardens. Whereas the traditional coal and steel mills have been transformed into creative spaces and cultural hotspots, the area has retained its soccer culture as well as tradition. When you come to the Ruhr Area, you will recognize immediately that you are not in a typical study abroad location. It is an untrodden territory you can discover for yourself, making new contacts in a remarkably welcoming and unique environment.

With your German student ID you will receive discounts at the campus cafeterias and for many cultural events. This is also literally your ticket to the entire state: Your ID gives you free access to the subways, buses and regional trains in the entire state of North Rhine-Westphalia, the most densely populated area in Germany, stretching from Muenster in the North through the Ruhr Area to Dusseldorf, Cologne and Aachen in the south. So you will have plenty of opportunities to get to know this diverse area on a budget.

How to apply
Please apply on the Keller Center website and include the following:

1. Personal statement (cover letter)
2. Resume
3. Transcript
4. Letter of recommendation from a professor or lecturer/researcher
