Three MSc + PhD positions available on Multi-Scale and Biomechanics Parallel Simulations on HECToR.

Dear all,

 Three positions are available for a unique MSC + PhD on massively parallel processing for computational mechanics in the field of multi-scale, XFEM and biomechanics. 

 Details here:

 Experience in Finite Elements or numerical methods and mechanics is *essential*. Please do not apply if you do not have this experience.

A Ph.D.+MSc Position on Brain Surgery Simulation by XFEM and FleXFEM

High Performance Computing MSc+Ph.D. position available at the University of Glasgow on Massively Parallel Brain Surgery Simulation with the extended finite element method (XFEM and FleXFEM)  (University of Glasgow) -- funding body is EPSRC.

One year MSc in HPC in Edinburgh (all costs covered by funding) + 3 year Ph.D.  and access to HecToR, one of the world's largest super-computer, including training with experts in massively parallel simulation (10,000+ processors).

Numerical integration of non-polynomial functions

Hello colleagues,

 Would anybody know good references on numerical integration of non-polynomial functions? It would be enough for me to obtain one-dimensional rules. Of course, it could have impact for XFEM applications, but for another, improved XFEM method that we are developing.

Note  that I am not talking about integrating singularities, but non-polynomial functions. Examples:




product of these.

Thanks for any help,



Ph.D. positions

Dear fellows,

crack growth by XFEM (Cyrille Dunant, Ph.D. student, EPFL, IMX) working with us on XFEM development (xfem++) a very generic finite element library
A short note to let you know that I have now three Ph.D. positions available to fill between now and March 2008 (sonner=better) (Students from the EU only -- fully funded). 

Second XFEM short course, July 2007, Lausanne, Switzerland

After the success of the course in 2005 (45 participants from 15 countries), the EPFL school of continuing education presents the second XFEM course.
