PhD positions on mechanics of morphing solids and shells at the University of Missouri, Columbia

The positions: I am looking to support two PhD students to work with me towards a mechanical understanding of morphing structures such as origami tessellations and lattice materials and metamaterials. By "understanding" I mean anything relevant to the theoretical and numerical modeling of these structures, in static and dynamic regimes, within the context of elasticity whether linearized or not as well as the fabrication and testing of toy models necessary to assess that "understanding".

Seeking Ph.D. student

Title Seeking a motivated Ph.D. student
Employer/Location: The Center of Natural Resources at New Jersey Institute of Technology, NJ, USA

The Center for Natural Resources led by Professor Michel Boufadel is seeking highly motivated Ph.D. students in the general area of fluid dynamics to conduct research related to the behavior of oil and water at various scales (microns to meters).  The work would be mostly numerical, but some experimental work would be needed. The research applies to the oil spills, such as the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

fatigue: overstressing and understressing


While teaching some students from old textbooks, I found reference to "understressing and overstressing" as producing effects into fatigue limits.    Looking at classical papers like  W SCHUTZ, A HISTORY OF FATIGUE Engineering Fracture Mechanics Vol. 54, No. 2, pp. 263-300, 1996, he says that the theory of understressing was largely a mistake due to statistically poor testing.  However, I see some chinese papers still talk of understressing, see below.

Strain Hardening Cementitious Composite (SHCC) layer for crack width control in reinforced concrete

Dear all,

Our group has recently performed a study on using ductile concrete, so called SHCC, as a surface layer in reinforced concrete structures in order to control the crack width. This will enable engineers to reduce the amount of reinforcement needed for crack control by using an advanced concrete type only where it is needed, thereby limiting the costs.
