The Effects of Intra-membrane Viscosity on Lipid Membrane Morphology: Complete Analytical Solution

We present a linear theory of lipid membranes which accommodates the effects of intra-membrane viscosity into the model of deformations. Within the Monge parameterization, a linearized version of the shape equation describing membrane morphology is derived. Admissible boundary conditions are taken from the existing non-linear model but reformulated and adopted to the present framework. We obtain a complete analytical expression illustrating the deformations of lipid membrane subjected to the influences of intra-membrane viscosity.

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.
For international applicants, you need to have your TOEFL and GRE scores ready to report by Oct. 15th. If interested, please send your resume and a cover letter, briefly explaining your relevant experience and publications to Dr Vaziri (mzv0045@auburn.edu).

Famous Morandi Genoa bridge collapses

There has been much discussion after the very sad collapse of a well known bridge in Genoa, designed by a famous bridge engineer Riccardo Morandi, more than 50 years ago.

Sharing data by theory/computation mechanicians

I noted with interest the recent iMechanica blog entry regarding the fact that only a small minority of experimentalists are willing to share raw data. I was somewhat surprised. I instinctively felt that theoreticians and comptutational scientists would have a different attitude.

Opening for two new Ph.D. students in the Computational Mechanics group, The University of Iowa.

The Computational Mechanics group at The University of Iowa, led by Professor S. Rahman, is looking for two new Ph.D. students, who are capable of and interested in performing high-quality research on uncertainty quantification and stochastic design optimization. The research, supported by U.S. National Science Foundation, requires building a solid mathematical foundation, devising efficient numerical algorithms, and developing practical computational tools, all associated with stochastic analysis and design of complex materials and structures.

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.
