Research Post Mechanics of Multilattices (Experimental) Cambridge

There is an opportunity to invent interpenetrating lattice materials in order to design materials of any given stiffness, strength and toughness. Currently, lattice materials, such as the 2D honeycomb and the 3D octet truss, exist in a single material on a single length scale. The challenge is to fill the intervening gaps in the lattice with a second lattice in order to improve the macroscopic properties. The new lattices will be invented, manufactured and tested by the post holder.

Testing and modelling of micro cement paste cube under indentation splitting

Dear all,

Our paper on an innovative method for testing and modelling of cement paste at micro-scale (100 micrometre) has been presented at the EURO-C conference in Austria. Full paper can be accessed at: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/323656746_Testing_and_modelling...

A volume-averaged nodal projection method for the Reissner-Mindlin plate model

We introduce a novel meshfree Galerkin method for the solution of Reissner-Mindlin plate problems that is written in terms of the primitive variables only (i.e., rotations and transverse displacement) and is devoid of shear-locking.

Mechanics of Mushroom as a material

We recently characterized a unique material developed from root structure (Mycelium) of mushroom. Mycelium has a filamentous network structure with mechanics largely controlled by filament elasticity and branching, and network density. We report the morphological and mechanical characterization of mycelium. The monotonic mechanical behavior of the mycelium is non-linear both in tension and compression.

Simpleware at ORS 2018, Mar 10-Mar 13, New Orleans

Learn about Synopsys Simpleware software's 3D image data (MRI, CT, micro-CT...) processing and model generation capabilities for orthopaedics, including medical device design, at this year's ORS.

We'll be available at booth #1215 to discuss how to use Simpleware software to improve workflows using complex scan data.

Research in Fluid Structure Interaction: Looking for PhD position

Hello,

I have completed my M.Tech (2015-17) from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati with specialization in Computational Mechanics.

 

I worked on Fluid Structure Interaction during my masters and developed a new Finite Element Algorithm to couple fluid and solid domains.

 

I aim to focus on FSI and Parallel Computation for my further research in PhD.

 

I'll welcome PhD offers with similar research interests.

Dear Colleagues, The 9th International Conference on Multiscale Materials Modeling (MMM) is held in Osaka, Japan on October 28 - November 2, 2018 (http://mmm2018.jp/). We are pleased to inform you that the abstract submission for a symposium on Multiscale Mechanics of Polymers, Soft Matter and Network Materials (Symposium H) is already open on the conference website.

ABD matrix and Effective Properties of Composite Laminates

Mechanics of structure genome (MSG) is a powerful tool that helps to obtain both effective properties and ABD matrix of composite laminates. The example shown here is how to predict the effective properties and ABD matrix of composite laminates starting from microstructural details of the composite.

The stress fields in a microstructure with particle inclusion

MSG provides a versatile microstructural representations based on the heterogeneity of the microstructure. MSG also makes easy for both predictions of effective properties and local fields in any type of microstructures. Please check the link here under to see how easy to use MSG to obtain both the effective properties and the local field recovery of a microstructure with particle inclusions.

Equipment for Bend Testing per ASTM Standards and User-Specific Applications

While it is easy to imagine why bend testing needs to be performed on rigid materials like plastics (ASTM D790) and concrete (ASTM C1609), in reality bend test applications are common in a variety of industries. Universal testing machines equipped with bend fixtures are used to calculate flexural modulus, flexural strength, yield point, and more.
