Journal Club for March 2018: Colloidal Self-Assembly of Architected Nanomaterials

Structural hierarchy through self-assembly

Architected materials with nano and microscale features can have extraordinarily high strength, stiffness, and toughness per weight. Two well-known biological materials with these characteristics are nacre (mother of pearl)1 and the claw of the mantis shrimp.2 These materials are made of up periodic arrangements of hard domains interspersed with soft matter (Fig. 1). Structural hierarchy exists at different length scales, and varies spatially across the material.

Postdoc Position on computational poromechanics

Dear colleagues, 

There is one postdoc opening in my research group. The research topic is on computational hydro-mechanics of porous media across temporal scales. 

Candidates must have established records on constitutive modeling and publication record. Programming experience is required. Experience in contact mechanics, level set and/or meshless method is a plus but not required. 

The starting date is flexible. More information can be found at

Pedestrian bridge collapse in Florida

Does anyone know more about the causes of that collapse?

Now that we supposedly know so much about mechanics, why does a small-span bridge like that collapse?  

It it because we are optimizing prematurely based on false confidence in numerical models?
