Materials-by-design: computation, synthesis, and characterization from atoms to structures

https://doi.org/10.1088/1402-4896/aab4e2 In the 50 years that succeeded Richard Feynman’s exposition of the idea that there is "plenty of room at the bottom" for manipulating individual atoms for the synthesis and manufacturing processing of materials, the materials-by-design paradigm is being developed gradually through synergistic integration of experimental material synthesis and characterization with predictive computational modeling and optimization.

PhD position at Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in Damage Tolerant Composite Materials

A new PhD position is vacant at the Section of Composites and Materials Mechanics of the Department of Wind Energy at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). The PhD project will concern damage tolerance of composite materials subjected to static and cyclic loading. The objective is to creacte enhanced fracture resistance by facilitating the formation of multiple cracks with large-scale fiber bridging along the interfaces in a layered composite by controlled mechanical properties by surface treatments.
