ACM2015 : International Conference on Advances in Applied and Computational Mechanics ,5-7 August 2015, Izmir/Turkey

We are proud to announce International Conference on Advances in Applied and Computational Mechanics, which is organized in the honor of  70th birthday of Prof.J.N.Reddy. This is a tribute for his many and lasting contribution to education and research in applied mechanics.

 

Conference will be held at  Izmir Tepekule Kongre Merkezi,Izmir/Turkey during August 5-7, 2015. 

Postdoc/PhD Position available 05/15/2015

We are currently accepting candidates for 1 Ph.D. and 1 Postdoc position in the Mechanical Engineering Department at the State University of New York, Stony Brook, working on the smart materials with application to sensing, energy harvesting and control.

 

Individuals with very good knowledge in the following area(s) are invited to respond.

o                     Structural Dynamics

A cable bending stick-slip analytical model

Single strand cable bending, stick-slip, analytical models require that a choice be made between two contact modes between adjacent wires: either radial (between layers) or lateral (between same layer wires). In most recent models (e.g. Papailiou’s) radial contact is selected. A “lateral contact” model has been presented by Panetti in 1944 and can be found in the proceedings of the Turin Royal Academy of Science. A translated version from Italian is proposed in the attached file.

Postdoc Position at University of Southern California

 

 

We are accepting candidates for a postdoctoral research associate in our multidisciplinary research group.  Individuals with evidence of experience in scholarly research and a strong commitment to excellence in education are encouraged to apply. A Ph.D. is required. Appointments are for one year with the possibility of renewal pending satisfactory performance and continued funding.

Requirements:

PhD Position in Computational Ice Mechanics at Aalto University, Finland

We are looking for a doctoral student to join our Arctic Marine and Ice Technology research group at the Aalto University, Department of Applied Mechanics, to study ice-structure interaction process in shallow water.  In this complex interaction process an intact ice sheet fails into discrete ice blocks, which affect further stages of the process. Realistic calculations of ice loads due to this process require modeling of the ice blocks and their pile-up process.

Experimental Study of NiTi Thin-Walled Tubes Under Uniaxial Tension, Torsion, Proportional and Non-Proportional Loadings

The superelastic response of NiTi shape memory alloys under various loading conditions is experimentally investigated using thin-walled tube specimens. The isotropic relation between the elastic and shear moduli of austenite and martensite as well as the von Mises stress and strain equivalency are also studied in uniaxial tension and pure torsion. In addition to proportional loading, several non-proportional loading experiments based on both force and displacement control modes are conducted.

Post Doc and PhD candidate positions on Composite Materials available

Prof Sung Ha, Head of a composite center in Korea, seeks several post-doctoral fellows and PhD candidates in the following areas of composite materials:

1. CAE simulation of mechanical behavior of composite materials and structures (impact, buckling, fatigue, etc..)

2. manufacturing of composite materials (thermoset or thermoplastic composites)

3. multiscale damage analysis of composite materials and structures.

PhD Position in Computational Mechanics of Glasses, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology

Friction and wear are important processes that determine the function of many mechanical devices, but their underlying microscopic physical principles are complex and often not well understood. Amorphous – or glassy – materials often form on surfaces that have experienced frictional loading. The research will involve large-scale molecular dynamics simulation of the near-surface deformation upon indentation and scratching of network and bulk metallic glasses.

PhD position in hierarchical composite materials

The University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland (FHNW) includes nine schools with more than 10'000 students. In a joint program with the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at Uni Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute, we are looking for you to join the FHNW School of Engineering, Institute of Polymer Engineering, in Windisch, Switzerland, at the earliest possible date:

Is it possible to apply time history functions from file as load, to certain points in model (abaqus)?

I need to do vibration analysis of masonry building at certain points on the model. I do have numbers of time history data files (first column = time, second column = acceleration), which need to be applied at certain parts on the model (ranging from 1st floor to 3nd floor) . 

From my understanding, the time history data can be inputted in Amplitude>tabular and set the BC as acceleration.

However, is it possible to apply time history functions as load to a certain points on model (ABAQUS program)?

A new journal in Nature Publishing Group: npj Computational Materials

npj Computational Materials is an online only, fully open access journal dedicated to publishing original results, review articles, and editorials on materials by design and integrated computational and experimental materials research.

Topics of interest to the journal include, but not limited to the following:

Funded PhD in Computational Mechanics of Porous Metallic Materials

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship fully funded by the EU research project. The position is for a three-year research program leading to the PhD degree.

This project focuses on fracture and failure mechanism of metallic foams. The project will focus on extreme loads such as impact and blast. Metallic foam is lighter and does better in a crash than regular old metal or fiberglass. Check out the recent wired article on foam http://www.wired.com/2014/12/aluminum-foam-trains/.
