EMI-2018@MIT – CALL FOR MINI-SYMPOSIA NOW OPEN (July to September 15, 2017)

Dear Colleagues,

EMI 2018, the 2018 Engineering Mechanics Institute (EMI) Conference will be held at M.I.T. from May 29 to June 1, 2018.

For this annual prime venue for Engineering Mechanics as a core discipline of science-enabled Civil Engineering, the CALL FOR MINI-SYMPOSIA Proposal Submission is NOW OPEN at: https://www.openconf.org/emi2018/

All you need is:

Design / FE analysis

Hi all,

The Peak acceleration of the linkage is 10^6 m/s(duration- 0.025s) and maximum displacement is 5 cm.Since Linkage has to carried by person,this much of acceleration is unaccepted.Could you suggest some ways/mechanism to reduce the acceleration (could be bared by Human).

Any help would be highly appreciated.

6th International Workshop on Design for Civil and Environmental Engineering

Design means to analyze, compare, manage and connect a large amount of data in order to develop, expand and materialize the starting idea, which was born to solve the initial problem. In this process, the engineer is the bridge of connection between the creative moment and its real implementation.

PhD position Superalloy hot forging modelling (Mondragon Unibertsitatea)

MODELIZACIÓN AVANZADA DE PROCESOS DE FORJA DE SUPERALEACIONES BASE NIQUEL

La simulación numérica es una herramienta clave para la optimización de los procesos de forja y la correcta predicción de las propiedades finales de los componentes forjados. Tanto en el sector Aeronáutico como en el de la energía, entre otros, las aleaciones de base Niquel se utilizan en componentes críticos de alto valor añadido. Las altas prestaciones de estos componentes junto con el elevado coste de la materia prima conllevan a la necesidad de una correcta optimización de los procesos de conformado.

What are Principal Stresses (explained without math equations) ?

 

In the following video, I have tried to explain the concept of principal stress in a more physical way and without involving any mathematical equations, hope you can easily imbibe the concept.

Here is the link to the video : Principal stresses

PhD position in computational solid mechanics

Aalto University (Finland), Department of Mechanical Engineering, is looking for a doctoral student for a study on the breakage and fragmentation of ice blocks under compressive loads. The fragmentation process is complicated and requires the use of novel modelling methods that can be used reliably on different scales. In addition to the computational work, we will perform experiments on this topic.

Post doc position in computational solid mechanics

We in Aalto Univeristy (Finland), Department of Mechanical Engineering, look for a post doc to join our group for a study on the breakage and fragmentation of ice blocks under compressive loads. The fragmentation process is complicated and requires the use of novel experiments and numerical models, and in this research, you will be working on both. The unique experiments on this topic will be performed in the cold room of the department.  Numerical modelling will be done on a variety of scales.
