3D Phase field crack simulation in concrete with experimental validation

We present below some of the works obtained in a joint project in the recent year on the modelling of fracture in concrete from direct experimental imaging and combined 3D X-ray micro-tomography, in-situ testing, and 3D phase field simulations. Among the different results, we highlight:

·         The first use of the phase field method to simulate fracture in concrete from direct imaging of their microstructure obtained by micro-CT.

4th International Conference on BioTribology (ICoBT2018)

The programme for the 4th International Conference on BioTribology (ICoBT 2018) to be held 26-29 September 2018 in Montreal, Canada is now available to view and download.

The aim of the ICoBT meetings is to bring together researchers from across the scientific, clinical and engineering spectrum, to promote communication across the different disciplines and to provide a platform for the presentation of new work in one meeting focused solely on Biotribology.

The programme includes:

Image-based Finite Element Method for Industry 2018: Swansea, 3-6 Sep 2018

Image-based meshing is the process by which 3D images (e.g. X-ray CT or laser scanning) are converted into ultra-high resolution simulations. 3D imaging is increasingly being used in the industrial sector for inspection, non-destructive testing / evaluation (NDT/NDE) and metrology but image-based modelling is still an underutilised technique. Our aim is that the activities of IBFEM-4i will facilitate a wider adoption of image-based modelling and provide a platform to discuss the cutting-edge developments in the field.

PhD positions in mechanics EMSI @ EPFL

Fully-funded PhD position in EMSI lab at EFPL - flow and failure of soft materials

The focus of the thesis project is on the flow and failure mechanisms in soft materials. Whereas a comprehensive framework for understanding yield in crystalline materials has helped us to understand plastic deformation of metals for nearly a century, no comprehensive framework has been developed for soft materials. Indeed, yielding and failure mechanisms in soft materials are strongly tied to the failure of everyday materials, from soil and rocks to cosmetics and food, and are thus ubiquitous in our daily experience. A variety of experimental approaches will be used to study flow and failure in soft materials using elastomers and hydrogels as material models, including optical microscopy and x-ray tomography. Prior experience in these methods is not required. Some laboratory experience is preferred, as students will be in charge of the experiments from design of the apparatus to data processing and interpretation. Strong communication ability is necessary, as numerical modelling will be carried out in collaboration.

Interested candidates holding an MS degree in Mechanics, Mechanical Engineering or Physics are encouraged to apply to the EDME doctoral school in Lausanne. The application should indicate interest in joining the EMSI lab (emsi.epfl.ch), and candidates should submit a CV directly to Prof. John Kolinski (john.kolinski [at] epfl.ch).

Mechanical behavior of mycelium-based particulate composites

We study the mechanical behavior of mycelium composites reinforced with biodegradable agro-waste particles. In the composite, the mycelium acts as a supportive matrix which binds reinforcing particles within its filamentous network structure. The compressive behavior of mycelium composites is investigated using an integrated experimental and computational approach.

Two Fully-funded PhD Positions in Additive Manufacturing

The National Center for Additive Manufacturing Excellence (NCAME) at Auburn University is announcing for two fully-funded PhD positions in the area of structural integrity of additive manufactured (AM) materials/parts. These students will work under direction of Dr. Shamsaei from Mechanical Engineering Department. These opportunities include;
1- One PhD student is expected to work on experimental and analytical mechanics, additive manufacturing, fatigue testing and modeling, failure analysis, microstructural characterization, and fracture mechanics.
2- The second PhD student will implement computational mechanics to investigate structural integrity of AM parts. The candidate for this position should have background on crystal plasticity and finite element analysis. This candidate is also expected to be familiar with a finite element software including writing subroutines.
If interested, please send your resume and a cover letter, briefly explaining your relevant experience and publications to Dr Vaziri (mzv0045@auburn.edu).
