The fifth issue in 2013 (Volume 29, Issue 5) of Acta Mechanica Sinica (AMS) is now online.
Now let me introduce another impressive mechanical journal for you:
I am so glad coming imechanica to meet everyone of you! I am an editor from Chinese Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, our society mainly publish five mechanical journals(three Chinese and two English). I would like to share recently published English articles for whom might be interested in.

Two PhD positions on computational and experimental multiscale mechanics at Eindhoven University of Technology, NetherlandsSubmitted by RonPeerlings on Thu, 2013-11-07 17:44.
Our Mechanics of Materials Group at Eindhoven University of Technology, Netherlands has two openings for talented PhD students in the field of multiscale mechanics of materials. They are part of a European Union funded project on multiscale methods for advanced materials. One opening is onthe development of a fundamentally new multiscale approach towards material modelling and the other aims to integrate this approach with experimental methods.

Modeling programmable deformation of self-folding all-polymer structures with temperature-sensitive hydrogelsSubmitted by Jinxiong Zhou on Tue, 2013-11-05 08:00.
soft active hydrogels with hard passive polymers gives rise to all-polymer
composites. The hydrogel is sensitive to external stimuli while the passive
polymer is inert. Utilizing the different behaviors of two materials subject to
environmental variation, for example temperature, results in self-folding soft
machines. We report our efforts to model the programmable deformation of
self-folding structures with temperature-sensitive hydrogels. The self-folding
structures are realized either by constructing a bilayer structure or by
incorporating hydrogels as hinges. The methodology and the results may aid the

In this Paper, the nonlinear free and force vibration of a single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT) with simply supported ends is
investigated based on von Karman’s geometric nonlinearity. The SWCNT described as an individual shell and the Donnell’s
equations of cylindrical shells are used to obtain the governing equations. The Galerkin's procedure is used to discretized partial
differential equations of the governing into the ordinary differential equations of motion. The method of averaging is applied to

The continuum mechanics of line defects representing singularities due to terminating discontinuities of the elastic displacement and its gradient field is developed. The development is intended for application to coupled phase transformation, grain boundary, and plasticity-related phenomena at the level of individual line defects and domain walls. The continuously distributed defect approach is developed as a generalization of the discrete, isolated defect case. Constitutive guidance for equilibrium response and dissipative driving forces respecting frame-indifference and non-negative mechanical dissipation is derived. A differential geometric interpretation of the defect kinematics is developed, and the relative simplicity of the actual adopted kinematics is pointed out. The kinematic structure of the theory strongly points to the incompatibility of dissipation with strict deformation compatibility.
It is very important to visualize molecular dynamics (MD) trajectories since there are many aspects of MD simulations which are difficult to identify without a proper visualization tool. Improper bounday condition in MD is one of such examples. I use Visual Molecular Dynamics (VMD) to visualize my MD simulations. Some of my graphics and a movie, created using VMD, are shown here: http://www.sfu.ca/~nmallika/Nuwan/Welcome.html ("Current Research Projects" under "Publications" tab)

The Composite and Heterogeneous Material Analysis and Simulation Laboratory (COHMAS) is located at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology and forms part of the Physical Science and Engineering Division. COHMAS develops and validates techniques to achieve the better design of composite materials based structures.
The Division of Physical Sciences and Engineering at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) invites applications for a Postdoctoral fellow in Mechanical Engineering at the Composite and Heterogeneous Material Analysis and Simulation Laboratory (COHMAS, http://cohmas.kaust.edu.sa).
We seek highly motivated candidates who will be involved in a challenging project on full-field measurement based local identification of material properties, with applications to composite materials. The main objective will be to improve the robustness and confidence in image correlation (2D/3D) for recovering heterogeneity of material properties in large parts of industrial complexity and in very refined low scale microstructures.
