Open PhD position in multi-scale process modeling of titanium alloys at the University of Tennessee

We have an open PhD position starting in the Fall semester 2019 at the Computational Laboratory for the Mechanics of Interfaces at the University of Tennessee - Knoxville (http://clmi.utk.edu). The research topic centers upon the modeling of texture evolution during processing conditions of titanium alloys using dislocation density based crystal plasticity. Efficient computational algorithms will be pursued to couple the specimen/part scale and the mesoscale.

Postdoc position in mechanical metamaterials at Sandia

I would like to call your attention to a postdoc opening at Sandia National Labs (Albuquerque, NM; www.sandia.gov)  in the area of structural metamaterials design, fabrication, and testing. We have an exciting new project to explore novel unit cell archetypes and innovative lattice materials.

Postdoctoral vacancy (3 years) on high-frequency vibration techniques for non-destructive inspection of 3D printed metal parts

The use of 3D printed metal structures is taking a very fast ramp-up in industry. General Electric has demonstrated the possibility of printing titanium fuel injectors for their LEAP engine, EADS has printed a nacelle hinge bracket for the Airbus A320, Boeing is printing plastic inlet ducts for high-altitude aircrafts, hip implants and other prosthetics are exploiting the design freedom of additive manufacturing (AM),...

Postdoctoral vacancy (36 months) on automated software workflow for medical application of 3D printed technologies

3D printing or Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies carry the promise of revolutionizing the quality and efficiency of healthcare. However, the required technologies, even when available, are currently too fragmented to be integrated into routine, affordable and streamlined solutions that can benefit a large number of patients. The challenge thereby is to deliver 3D printing technologies that enable:

PhD and Postdoc Positions in computational poromechanics at Columbia University

I am seeking a Ph.D. student and/or postdoc associate for a number of projects related to high-strain-rate plasticity and phase-transition of porous media. 

Candidates with demonstrated experience in computational mechanics, poromechanics, and implementation of codes in C++ and python are strongly preferred. Basic understanding of tensor calculus and continuum mechanics is required for the Ph.D. position. Students with track-records of academic achievements are encouraged to apply.

What topics are still under development using phase-field modeling?

Dear colleagues,

I wonder to know what topics are still under development using phase field (PF) modeling?

The PF has already applied to 2D, 3D, and shell structures, incorporating homogeneous, inhomogeneous, and heterogeneous materials. It also applied to brittle, ductile, dynamic, cohesive, finite deformation, and multi-field fractures. What else we can model using PF method?

Regards,

Malekan

PhD position in multiscale simulation of clay-polymer composite at UW-Madison

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is seeking a PhD student to work on multiscale simulations of clay-polymer composite.

The student will conduct atomistic and mesoscale simulations to support multidisciplinary collaborations. Candidates with experiences in molecular simulations techniques such as molecular dynamics are strongly preferred, although self-motivated students with track-records of academic achievements are encouraged to apply regardless.

Effects of CNT size on the desalination performance of an outer-wall CNT slit membrane

https://doi.org/10.1039/C8CP01191E We investigate the effect of varying carbon nanotube (CNT) size on the desalination performance through slit confinements formed by horizontally aligned CNTs stacked on top of one another. By increasing the CNT size, the results obtained from this study indicate a corresponding increase in the water flow rate, accompanied by a slight reduction in salt rejection performance.
