Fully funded PhD opportunity for International Students

I have a fully funded PhD position (3.5 years duration) for students from any nationality to work at Queen's University of Belfast on an excited simulation based project to elucidate details of diamond machining of silicon. The project is financially supported by a world leading Paris based industry. Candidates having good background in mechanics/ manufacturing are very much encouraged to write to me at

Abaqus - line load on channel beam applied outside of a beam (in shear center)

Hello, everybody. I'm having a problem regarding the application of a line load beyond the contours of a channel tube made out of shell elements. I am trying to perform lateral torsional buckling analysis and the load needs to act in shear center. Does anybody have a solution for this?

Yield behaviour of trabecular bone

A recently published paper  "Evaluating the macroscopic yield behaviour of trabecular bone using a nonlinear homogenisation approach" links the micromechanics of bone to its macroscopic behaviour. The paper may be of interest to colleagues on this forum. The abstract is provided below.

[Call for Abstract] SES 2016 Symposium D-3: Mechanics of 3D Printed Materials and Structures

We would like to invite you to submit an abstract to the symposium on Mechanics of 3D Printed Materials and Structures at the 53rd Annual Technical Meeting of the Society of Engineering Science (SES2016) to be held during October 4-7, 2016 at the College Park Marriott Hotel & Conference Center (College Park, MD). 

Symposium Technical Description

Fracto-emission in lanthanum-based metallic glass microwires under quasi-static tensile loading

Plastic deformation in metallic glasses is highly localized and often associated with shear banding, which may cause momentary release of heat upon fracture. Here, we report an explosive fracture phenomenon associated with momentary (∼10 ms) light emission (flash) in Lanthanum-based (LaAlNi) metallic glass microwires (dia. ∼50 μm) under quasi-static tensile loading.

Pressure Difference Calculation in ABAQUS

Hi everyone, 

I am working on ABAQUS to simulate Pipeline Inspection Gauge (PIG) movement in a pipeline via CEL technique. I am unable to find how to calculate Pressure Difference in the pipeline using Abaqus.

If anyone of you can guide me through it.

Problem in ANSYS Transient thermal analysis

I want to do a transient thermal analysis in butt welded joint.The heat flow I have given 3200 watt(Q = efficiency x current x voltage = 0.8 x 160 amp x 25 volt)to the welding zone, given 20 load step(as welding is completed in 20 sec),convection co-efficient = 11.14, emissivity = .4 and applied both boundary condition convection and radiation on every surface except welding zone. But after solving the minimum temperature of the plate is coming in negative.Can anybody tell me what i am missing?

Damage plasticity model for concrete failure CDPM2

Those involved in the modelling of the failure of plain/reinforced concrete using damage and plasticity might be interested in our webpage

which we have created to support our concrete damage plasticity model CDPM(2) in LS-DYNA. You can find there a number of example input files, reports and our implementation of the model in the form of a user subroutine.
