Two PhD positions are available immediately in Computational Materials and Mechanics Laboratory at the Colorado School of Mines

Two PhD positions are available immediately in the Computational Materials and Mechanics Laboratory at the Colorado School of Mines.

Candidates should have a master's degree in mechanical engineering, materials science and engineering, solid-state physics, or applied mathematics. A background in phase field modeling, molecular dynamics, and/or density functional theory calculations is desired.

Cutting iron foam samples

Hi, I have a sheet of open cell pure iron foam (porosity> 90% , thickness around 2.5 mm), and I would like to prepare 1 cm x 1 cm samples for subsequent compression tests. My foam is ductile and also it can be easily squeezed or bended with hand. I was wondering if I use a big rotatory saw (Bosch 4310, picture attached) to cut long rectangular strips (cuboids) of the foam (20 cm x 1 cm), could it significantly change the mechanical properties of the whole foam sheet, or it would change the mechanical properties of the cutting surface only.

Bifurcation & Chaos in Nonlinear Structural Dynamics: Novel & Highly Efficient Optimal-Feedback Accelerated Picard Iteration Algorithms

A new class of algorithms for solving nonlinear structural dynamical problems are derived in the present paper, as being based on optimal-feedback-accelerated Picard iteration, wherein the solution vectors for the displacements and velocities at any time in a finitely large time interval are corrected by a weighted (with a matrix) integral of the error. We present 3 approximations to solve the Euler-Lagrange equations for the optimal weighting functions; thus we present 3 algorithms denoted as Optimal-Feedback-Accelerated Picard Iteration (OFAPI) algorithms-1, 2, 3.

Abaqus Cordinate System Rotation

I need one help regarding Abaqus. Is there any way in Abaqus where we can rotate a defined coordinate system with respect to another defined axis (not X, Y, Z axis of the coordinate system but another line)?
