Workshop "Novel Developments in Failure Analysis of Composite Materials and Structures" for PhD students

Dear Colleagues, In the context of the EU Marie Curie ITN Project FULLCOMP, a workshop "Novel Developments in Failure Analysis of Composite Materials and Structures" for PhD students and young researchers will take place on 30-31 July 2018 at the Leibniz Universität Hannover. This workshop presents recent developments in various aspects of failure analysis of composite structures, ranging from material modelling to structural modelling and from testing and identification aspects to numerical analysis.

[Call for abstract] [Nanoarchitectured and Morphology-controlled Nanoporous Materials] [2019 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition

We are organizing the symposium on " Nanoarchitectured and Morphology-controlled Nanoporous Materials" at the next TMS meeting to be held in San Antonio Texas from March 10- March 14, 2019. This is a gentle note to remind you that the deadline for abstract submission has been extended to July 16th. Please consider submitting to this symposium and encourage your students and colleagues to contribute.

Below is a description of the focus of this symposium.

Nanoarchitectured materials, such as nanoporous solids, nanolattices, and nanoporous membranes, have received large attention due to their unique structural and functional properties including high strength, stiffness, radiation and fatigue resistance as well as thermal stability. These materials often offer large surface area and low density that makes them attractive for applications including energy harvesting and storage, fuel cells, Li–ion batteries, hydrogen storage, catalysis, gas purification, and separation technologies. The properties and applications of nanoarchitectured solids depend on their ligament size, porosity, network structure, morphology, connectivity, and surface area. This symposium will cover advances in synthesis, characterization, and computational modeling of nanoarchitectured and morphology-controlled nanoporous materials.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

- Advances in synthesis of thermodynamics driven nanostructures to controlled architectured materials systems

- Hybrid systems through integrated processing methods

- Design and optimization of morphology controlled nanoarchitectured materials

- Surface-driven phenomena in nanoporous and nanoarchitectured materials: experiments, modeling and simulation

- Influence of the morphology and topology on network-driven mechanical, and thermal properties in nanoarchitectured and nanoporous materials:

- Structural and functional applications of nanoporous and nanoarchitectured materials

Gradient elasticity theory for fiber composites with fibers resistant to extension and flexure

A model for the mechanics of an elastic solid, reinforced with bidirectional fibers is presented in finite plane elastostatics. The fiber’s resistance to stretch and flexure are accounted for with variational computations of first and second gradient of deformations, respectively. Within the framework of strain-gradient elasticity, the Euler equation and necessary boundary conditions are formulated. A rigorous derivation of the corresponding linear theory is also developed from which, a complete analytical solution is obtained for small deformations superposed on large.

Workhop: From 3D Images to Models with Simpleware Software, Dulles, VA, July 18th

This workshop is aimed at those interested in processing 3D image data. You will experience first-hand how quick and easy it is to visualize 3D image data (CT, MRI, FIB-SEM...), obtain image statistics and carry out segmentation, right through to generate models for CAD design, FE/CFD simulation and 3D printing. If you are working in areas such as Materials Science, Industrial Reverse Engineering and Life Sciences, then this workshop is for you.

Rubber Durability Workshop - Bangalore

Course1: Characterizing Elastomer Fatigue Behavior for Analysis and Engineering (24th July to 26th July):-

Elastomers are outstanding in their ability to repeatedly endure large deformations, and they are often applied where fatigue performance is critical. Their macromolecular structure gives rise to unique behaviors, and so appropriately specialized experimental methods are needed to characterize, analyze, and design for durability. This 3-day course will give you powerful approaches to anticipate, diagnose and solve fatigue-related issues.
