Journal Club Theme of November 2014: Catalyzed Growth of Semiconductor Nanowires - Multiscale Models

Introduction

Happy Halloween!

In this issue of the Journal Club, I would like to introduce the problem of catalyzed growth of semiconductor nanowires and ways to model it.  I would provide web links to only a few articles, hoping that you would download and actually read them so that we can have a more in-depth discussion.

Post-doctoral position at Purdue University in computational modeling of biomineralized materials

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the Computational Multi-Scale Materials Modeling Lab in the Lyles School of Civil Engineering at Purdue University to work with a multidisciplinary/multiuniversity team in the area of modeling of biomineralized and bio-inspired materials. The goal of the program is to uncover fundamental design rules and develop simple and basic scientific foundations for the predictable design of bio-inspired materials that are light-weight, tough and strong.

Reminder (Deadline, Dec 5th): Call for Nominations for the Eshelby Mechanics Award for Young Faculty

It is my pleasure to solicit nominations for the "Eshelby Mechanics Award for Young Faculty". This award, launched in 2012, is given annually to rapidly emerging junior faculty who exemplify the creative use and development of mechanics. The intent of the award is to promote the field of mechanics, especially among young researchers. While interdisciplinary work that bridges mechanics with physics, chemistry, biology and other disciplines is encouraged, the ideal awardee will demonstrate clear inspiration from mechanics in his/her research.

cdmHUB.org: Online Composites Community of the Future

I thought this might be of interest for some imechanicans, particularly those who work on composites (anisotropic and/or heterogeneous materials). Sorry if it sounds a bit infomercial. 

Imagine a youtube-like environment for you to deploy a cloud version of your code without any change to your original code. Your research code can be immediately shared with the global community.

Speech of Acceptance of the 2014 Timoshenko Medal by Robert M. McMeeking

Applied Mechanics Division Banquet, Palais des congrès de Montréal, Quebec, Canada, November 18th, 2014.

Now I can say whatever I like in my Timoshenko Lecture and it won’t matter – because you will only remember Ken Liechti playing the bagpipes and, perhaps, the kilts.  Thank you Ken.
