PhD position in computational biomechanics at University of Glasgow

I am looking for motivated students to join my research group and work towards their PhD in the area of computational biomechanics.

Description

Almost 30% of all deaths globally are related to cardiovascular diseases, and most of these are related to changes in the stiffness of tissues making up the system. There is an urgent need for new computational tools that can help detect, understand, and treat these diseases. There are three specific projects available under his broad topic:

Cohesive element modelling problem in ABAQUS

Dear All,

I am modelling a 3 point bend specimen with Cohesive elements tied to the upper and lower halves of the specimen in 2d.

The problem is that the CZ elements perform properly only for a combination of element sizes, i.e. a combination of element size of structure and CZ elements, for instance in my case the structure/specimen element size is 0.2mm and CZ is 0.001 or 0.002. For any other combination the adjacent elements bend as shown in the attached image.

I will be glad if someone could explain this behaviour and the solution.

Steady-state fracture toughness of elastic-plastic solids: Isotropic versus kinematic hardening

I hope some of you may find this work interesting. We show that kinematic hardening effects play a significant role in monotonic/static fracture.

Nonlinear elasticity of incompatible surface growth

In this manuscript with Lev Truskinovsky, we developed a new nonlinear theory of large-strain incompatible surface growth. Surface growth is a crucial component of many natural and artificial processes from cell proliferation to additive manufacturing. In elastic systems, surface growth is usually accompanied by the development of geometrical incompatibility leading to residual stresses and triggering various instabilities. Here we developed a nonlinear theory of incompatible surface growth which quantitatively linkes deposition protocols with post-growth states of stress.

Need Help regarding UMAT subrouitne

It's been  2 weeks, I strated to use abaqus and user subrouitnes. To understand the how user subroutine work I thought to run some UMAT which I got it from  http://imechanica.org/files/Writing%20User%20Subroutines%20with%20ABAQUS.pdf  (page no- L6.73) to analysis a 3d steel plate with the material property which is given below.

A biohybrid valveless pump-bot powered by engineered skeletal muscle

Pumps are critical life-sustaining components for all animals. At the earliest stages of life, the tubular embryonic heart works as a valveless pump capable of generating unidirectional blood flow. Inspired by this elementary pump, we developed the first example of a biohybrid valveless pump-bot powered by engineered skeletal muscle. Our pump-bot consists of a soft hydrogel tube connected at both ends to a stiffer polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) scaffold, creating an impedance mismatch.

On unified crack propagation laws

The anomalous propagation of short cracks shows generally exponential fatigue crack growth but the dependence on stress range at high stress levels is not compatible with Paris’ law with exponent m=2. Indeed, some authors have shown that the standard uncracked SN curve is obtained mostly from short crack propagation, assuming that the crack size a increases with the number of cycles N as da/dN=H\Delta\sigma^h where h is close to the exponent of the Basquin’s power law SN curve.
