Research Assistant in Computational Mechanics

We are looking for a research assistant who is interested in developing and implementing computational algorithms for simulation and optimization in structural mechanics applications.
Our current research lies broadly in the field of computational mechanics and includes the development and implementation of novel computational methods for the discretization of ordinary and partial differential equations arising in structural and continuum mechanics (such as finite element methods and isogeometric analysis), multi-disciplinary design, shape and topology optimization methods, as well as application of those methods in digital design and additive manufacturing, e.g. 3D/4D printing, lattice structures, metamaterials, composites or textiles, and integration into computer-aided design-to-manufacturing approaches.

Abstract

How to model 1/4 part of 3D cubic void cell (RVE) in abaqus which is subjected to combined tension and shear ?

I want to model 1/4 part of cubic void cell which is subjected to combined tension and shear, Since its a part of RVE hence I need to apply periodic boundary conditions. I am trying to model the same model which is taken by Prof  Cihan Tekoglu in his paper "Representative volume element calculations under constant stress triaxiality, Lode parameter, and shear ratio" under same boundary conditions. I had applied all the boundary conditions mentioned in his paper in Appendix B, but still I get wierd deformed shape after simulation.

What kind of tensile testing grips is right for your samples and application?

Choosing the most appropriate tensile grips to effectively secure your samples is critical in getting accurate measurements of tensile properties such as tensile strength, peak load, elongation, tensile modulus, and yield.

Recent work "Self-Assembly of Islands on Spherical Substrates by Surface Instability"

Through strain-induced morphological instability, protruding patterns of roughly commensurate nanostructures are self-assembled on the surface of spherical core/shell systems. A three-dimensional (3D) phase field model is established for a closed substrate. We investigate both numerically and analytically the kinetics of the morphological evolution, from grooves to separated islands, which are sensitive to substrate curvature, misfit strain, and modulus ratio between the core and shell.

Marino Arroyo's picture

PhD opening in theoretical modeling and computer simulation of cell and tissue mechanobiology

Mechanics fundamentally governs the way cells and tissues adopt their functional shapes, the way they resist stresses, and the way they move, individually or collectively. In turn, mechanical forces critically influence cell behavior. Over the last decade, the field of mechanobiology has emerged, emphasizing the tight interplay between mechanics and biological function.
