PhD with 5 Years of R&D and Industrial Experience, Actively Seeking a Job/Research Position in Acoustics and Vibration/Vibro-acoustics/Structural Dynamics/Noise and Vibration

I am an experienced professional in structure borne sound, structural and machinery dynamics, vibro-acoustics, and now actively looking for a career opportunity in R&Ds or in Industries. Ph.D. in acoustics & vibration, around 5 years of work experience in R&Ds and Industries, published articles in reputed international Journals and Conferences with modelling, simulation, testing and analysis experience backed by relevant course-works. In achieving this, I have shown myself to be self-motivated, committed and determined in arriving at my goals.

PhD studentship in Mechanics of Materials - Draping of non-crimp fabrics

The aim of the PhD is to develop a micromechanical model for forming of non-crimp fabrics (NCFs), and use this to optimise the pre-forming process for manufacture of complex shapes. The work will include both experimental work and finite element modelling. The work will benefit from close links with industrial partners Formax (manufacturer of NCFs), Simulia (developers of Abaqus forming simulation tools) and Jaguar Land Rover.

Mechanical Self-Assembly of a Strain-Engineered Flexible Layer: Wrinkling, Rolling, and Twisting

Self-shaping of curved structures, especially those involving flexible thin layers, is attracting increasing attention because of their broad potential applications in, e.g., nanoelectromechanical andmicroelectromechanical systems, sensors, artificial skins, stretchable electronics, robotics, and drug delivery.

Mechanics of Cosserat Media

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

We are trying to find out the work conjugate strain (and wryness) measures to T and M (stess and couple stress) and we know that in classical theory the conjugate strain measure is identified using the stress power, which appears in the power balance equation derived taking the inner product of the equation of motion with velocity. Please refer to the attached pdf for details.

1.  Given the equations of motion of Cosserat media (Eq 1 and 2 in attached pdf) how do we extend the procedure of calculating the stress power for Cosserat media?

JAM in 2015

Thanks to the efforts of the associate editors and reviewers, JAM continues to publish very fast.  Among ~800 submissions in 2015, there are only 19 papers that are still under review as of February 1, 2016.  In addition, the acceptance rate continues to decline, to ~16% in 2015.

Thermo-mechanical response: Role of Porosity and Microcracking (in particular)

Below are references to some of our ongoing work that is published and is related to study the role of microcracking (in particular) and porosity to the thermo-mechanical response of functional ceramics. This study is  relevant to understand the structural reliability of the systems such as the SOFC's (solid oxide fuel cells) and DPF's (diesel particulate filters).

Gibbs: Thermodynamics

I bought this reprint by the Ox Bow Press in 1990s.  The quality of print is excellent. The book collects all papers of Gibbs on thermodynamics. I’ll focus on the three main papers:  Paper I (pp. 1-32), Paper II (pp. 33-54), and Paper III (pp. 55-371).  Papers I and II are short and fundamental.  Paper III is very long; it applied the basic approach developed in the short papers to a large number of important phenomena.  Over the years I have returned to the book many times, and will continue to do so in coming years.

Call for abstracts: Industrial Applications of IGA and Meshfree Methods -- USACM Conference on Isogeometric Analysis and Meshfree Methods -- October 10-12, 2016, La Jolla, CA

Dear Colleagues,

You are invited to submit an abstract to the thematic session "Industrial Applications of IGA and Meshfree Methods” at the USACM Conference on Isogeometric Analysis and Meshfree Methods taking place on October 10-12, 2016, in La Jolla, California, at the Estancia La Jolla Hotel and Spa.

The aim of our thematic session is to bring together researchers working in the industrial scale application of isogeometric and meshfree methods, to share recent advances, lessons learned, and to transfer knowledge between the two communities.
