Journal Club April 2010: Negative Poisson's ratio materials

Metamaterials are artificial materials engineered to provide properties which may not be readily available in nature and are attracting increasing attention. These materials usually gain their properties from structure rather than composition. Although the first metamaterials were photonic (i.e.  artificially fabricated, sub-wavelength, periodic structures, designed to interact with optical frequencies) and acoustic (i.e.

PhD/PostDoc position at University of Twente (NL): Hierarchical multi-scale modeling

The scientific goal of the project is to develop a multi-scale computational method that uses a single hierarchical data-structure as basis – involving also multiple fields. Starting from mesoscopic structures (particles or domains) a grid is constructed on a hierarchical, tree-based data structure. The hierarchical approach allows for micro-macro transition, coupling of different fields, and coarsening or refinement – where possible or needed, respectively.

Open PhD position: Microstructures in Solids


Info:  The goal of this project is to investigate the mechanical and acoustical behavior of materials characterized by a well-defined miscrostructure. The research will involve experimental, theoretical and computational mechanics.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, science-driven, outstanding young
candidate with experience in solid and structural mechanics. Experience
with basic mechanical testing techniques is also appreciated.
