Call for abstract-ASME IMECE 2011 Symposium on Integrated Structures and Materials in Advanced Technologies

Dear colleagues,

We would like to invite you to submit an abstract to a Symposium on Mechanics of Integrated Structures and Materials in Advanced Technologies at the ASME 2011 IMECE, to be held Nov 11-17, 2011, at Denver, Colorado. This symposium will be the sixth in such a symposium series organized by ASME Technical Committee of Integrated Structures since IMECE 2006. We hope you can join us and continue the success of this symposium series.

Deadline of abstract submission is Monday, 7 March 2011.

President Obama on the Necessity of Science (video)

Obama spoke at the National Academy of Sciences on Apr. 27, 2009, in which he states his commitment to doubling of science funding and stem education. From his speech,

 "At such a difficult moment, there are those who say we cannot afford to invest in science, that support for research is somehow a luxury at moments defined by necessities.  I fundamentally disagree.  Science is more essential for our prosperity, our security, our health, our environment and our quality of life than it has ever been before."

An article on tenure-track

Stop Trying To Get Tenure and Start Trying To Enjoy Yourself

One of my junior colleagues forwarded the above article to me, and I read with interest. I think it could also resonate the interest of many people here in iMechanica. I welcome your comments, especially from our been-there done-that tenured colleagues.

Effects of grain boundary adhesion and grain size on ductility of thin metal films on polymer substrates

We study the effects of grain boundary adhesion and grain size on the ductility of thin metal films well bonded to polymer substrates, using finite element method. It is shown that the ductility of polymer-supported metal films increases approximately linearly as the grain boundary adhesion increases, and as the grain size decreases. A rule-of-thumb estimate of the ductility of polymer-supported metal films agrees well with the simulation results.
