PhD position at Polytechnique Montréal on the modelling of the peen forming process with a major aerospace company

Polytechnique Montréal is looking for a candidate with a strong solid mechanics and computational mechanics background to work on the simulation of the shot peen forming process for full scale wing panels. The project will consist of using and improving current methodologies for predicting the response of thin Al sheets submitted to shot peening. The predictions will be validated against real data generated on full scale wing panels by a major aerospace company.

9th International Conference on the Mechanics of Time Dependent Materials – Call for papers

Dear Colleagues
The 9th International Conference on the Mechanics of Time Dependent Materials will be held in Montréal, Canada, from May 27th to 30th 2014. The purpose of this conference is to foster exchanges between researchers dealing with mechanical (solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, rheology, etc.) time-dependent aspects of different materials so as to generate new ideas and solutions for nowadays problems. The conference features 4 keynotes presentation given by world-class experts dealing with polymers, composites, metals and living tissues.
The deadline for submitting abstracts is November 1st 2013.
