Introduction to Simpleware Software Workshop, London, Feb 8th

This workshop is aimed at those interested in obtaining high fidelity models from 3D image data. You will experience first-hand how quick and easy it is to visualize and process 3D image data (CT, MRI, FIB-SEM...), and generate models for CAD design, FE/CFD simulation and 3D printing. If you are working in areas such as Materials Science, Industrial Reverse Engineering and Life Sciences, then this workshop is for you.

Call for Mini-Symposia Proposals for the 2018 EMI International Conference at Tongji University in Shanghai, China

Prof. Jie LI, Conference Chair, and Prof. Xiaodan REN, Conference Secretariat, invite you, your colleagues and your collaborators to organize a mini-symposium as part of the 2018 EMI International Conference (EMI2018-IC ), which will be held at Tongji University, Shanghai, China, during November 2 - 4, 2018.

Fundamentals of Simpleware Training, Reading, UK, Feb 6th

This one-day intensive training course intends to give new and existing users sufficient knowledge of the basic functionality of Simpleware software for converting 3D image data (MRI, CT...) into mdoels for CAD, CAE, and 3D Prrinting applications. It will allow you to develop workflows based your areas of research and future projects.

NSF Travel Grants for Junior Faculty and Post-Doctoral Fellows to attend the EMI 2018 Conference at M.I.T.


In an effort to increase the participation of women and underrepresented groups in the EMI 2018 conference, the National Science Foundation will provide a number of travel assistantships to postdoctoral researchers and junior faculty members from those groups.


Material Testing in High and Low Temperatures

High or low temperature testing is made feasible by adding an environmental chamber to a universal testing machine (UTM). Environmental chambers come with their own temperature controller and, depending on the system’s compatibility, the temperature settings and recordings may be controlled with the UTM’s controller or software.

Tossing your Smartphone

If you are teaching a course on vehicle dynamics, navigation, robotics, or rotations you might be interested in exploiting the fact that your students' smartphones are equipped with inertial navigation units (IMUs). Daniel Kawano and Prithvi Akella have harnessed the data from the IMU using the Matlab mobile app and used this data to determine the motion of a smart phone:

Industrial PhD studentship available (EU/UK students only), University of Southampton, UK

A PhD studentship is available at the University of Southampton as part of a collaboration with MatchID NV. It consists at exploring new heterogeneous test configurations for composites and elastomers, based on Digital Image Correlation (DIC) and the Virtual Fields Method (VFM). The overarching goal is to propose new standard tests relying on heterogeneous states of strain and stress for cheaper and more robust material testing.

MSE 2018 / Invitation to submit your abstract

I’m very happy to inform you, that among others, Markus Stricker and me are Symposium-Organizers of the Materials Science and Engineering Congress 2018 (MSE) and would like to invite you to submit your abstract to the symposiums:

Robustness and Resilience of Infrastructures under Extreme Loads

The catastrophic consequences observed after extreme events (flooding, earthquakes, vehicle impact, explosions, and fire) in transport and energy networks, as well as commercial and residential buildings, have significantly changed the public perception of risk regarding structures and infrastructure. Materials and structures are pushed to the limit in these conditions and given the fact that it is not always possible to provide an elastic response damage development must be considered and robustness becomes a precious characteristic.

Low cost condition assessment method for existing RC bridges

Aging infrastructures represent a current engineering challenge. Huge budgets are necessary to keep their functionality and the lack of a proper and timely maintenance entails an increasing deterioration and therefore higher repair costs. Therefore, assessing the reliability of infrastructures becomes mandatory, with particular attention to the ones still in service even when their life limit has exceeded.
