Research Position at the Institute of Applied Mechanics, TU Braunschweig

We offer a research position in the area of Computational Mechanics with a focus on isogeometric analysis and collocation methods applied to multiscale material modeling, beginning January 1st, 2015. The position is full-time fixed-term for 3 years.

Postdoc (m/f) on fracture toughness of high performance composite materials

Your tasks: The main objective of this position is to improve the fracture toughness of high performance composite materials. You are expected to plan and implement manufacturing and processing experiments with carbon fibre thermoset prepregs and characterise their fracture properties. Furthermore, you will plan respective processing equipment and thoroughly investigate fracture mechanics of composites. This also includes the development of according numerical analyses and simulations.

A Ph.D. Position in Mechanics of Nano-composites at Michigan State University

Our Group of Appleid mechanics in Enviormental & Civil Engineering Department at Michigan State University has an openings for PhD positions to work on  Mechanics of Nano-composites  starting Spring 2015.

One research direction is modeling of nano reinforced materials, with combined theoretical and experimental efforts. Highly Stretchable/Flexible composites combines the leight weight of classical composites and mechanical properties of a polymer based composites, and thus do have a very broad biological applications. .

Esaform 2015 & Integrated design

We organize at the next Esaform conference, that will take place in April 2015 in Austria (http://www.esaform2015.at), a symposium on « Integrated design, modeling and reliability assessment in forming » or I-DMR (MS19).  The idea of this symposium is to optimize plastically formed parts obtained from a multi-step strategy, focusing on the technological processes' efficiency as well as the structural performance of the final components.

A computational study of flexoelectricity

Flexoelectricity is a size-dependent electromechanical mechanism coupling polarization and strain gradient. It exists in a wide variety of materials, and is most noticeable for nanoscale objects, where strain gradients are higher. Simulations are important to understand flexoelectricity because experiments at very small scales are difficult, and analytical solutions are scarce.

Extremely Curved Cracks

 

The word "extreme" seems to be "trending" a lot these days, see the recent discussions on the new journal Extreme Mechanics Letters.

My collaborator Ruben Sevilla at Swansea and I were interested in very curved crack paths that develop in nature and have been replicated experimentally in thin films attached to elastic substrates.

Rapid review and publication at JAM in 2014

Journal of Applied Mechanics (JAM) received 280 submitted manuscripts during the first 6 months in 2014.  Among them only 4 are still in review.  

The average time for the 1st round of review, with the decision to accept, or reject, or revise, is reduced to 10 days.  For those that need revisionsthe average time to make the final decision is 24 days after the 1st round of review, which include both the authors' revision time and 2nd (and more) round(s) of review.

JMPS paper-Micro-buckling in the nanocomposite structure of biological materials

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

Nanocomposite structure, consisting of hard mineral and soft protein, is the elementary building block of biological materials, where the mineral crystals are arranged in a staggered manner in protein matrix. This special alignment of mineral is supposed to be crucial to the structural stability of the biological materials under compressive load, but the underlying mechanism is not yet clear.
