The Faculty of Engineering Science and Technology (IVT) at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) announces one vacant PhD position in the field of Fracture of Ni-alloys.
We successfully synthesized a family of alginate/polyacrylamide hydrogels using various multivalent cations. These hydrogels exhibit exceptional mechanical properties. In particular, we found that the hydrogels cross-linked by trivalent cations are much stronger than those cross-linked by divalent cations. We demonstrate stretchability and toughness of the hydrogels by inﬂating a hydrogel sheet
The Department of Mechanical Engineering seeks an outstanding individual for a tenure-track faculty position in Mechanics of Solids and Structures. The appointment is expected to be at the assistant professor level; in an exceptional case, a senior faculty appointment may be possible. Faculty duties include teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, development of an independent, internationally-recognized research program, and supervision of student research. Applicants should send a curriculum vita, a research statement, a teaching statement, and copies of not more than three publications (combined into a single PDF file). They should also arrange for four individuals to submit letters of recommendation on their behalf.
Multiple Postdoctoral Positions: Modeling, Simulation and Assessment of Building Materials, Czech Technical University in PragueSubmitted by jenda_z on Fri, 2013-10-18 10:55.
The Czech Technical University in Prague - University Center for Energy Efficient Buildings, offers four postdoctoral positions in the fields of modeling, simulation, assessment and optimization of multi-functional materials and structures.
The present project integrates four different topics, each of which will be supervised by a mentor from the Faculty of Civil Engineering at the Czech Technical University in Prague. The project is supported by the European Union, through the Operational Program Research and Development for Innovations, project No. CZ.1.07/2.3.00/30.0034.

The Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering (CCEE) at North Carolina State University (NCSU) expects a tenure track faculty position to be filled in the area of Structural Engineering and Mechanics. Exceptional candidates in all areas within structural engineering and mechanics are encouraged to apply; applicants with expertise in modeling of structural systems or materials are of particular interest. The CCEE Department and College of Engineering have state-of-the-art laboratory facilities that span from nano-scale to full-scale, equipped to study many aspects of civil engineering systems from material characterization to large-scale structural systems, thus providing unique opportunities for collaboration.
This paper presents a theoretical and
experimental study on lateral compression of square and rectangular metal
columns. Some theoretical relations are derived to predict the absorbed energy,
the specific absorbed energy and the instantaneous lateral load during the
lateral compression. Analytical relations are obtained in two stages: elastic
and plastic parts. In the plastic zone, the total absorbed energy by the column
is calculated, based on the energy method. Then, an analytical equation is
derived to predict the instantaneous lateral load. In the elastic part, the
instantaneous load is obtained by linear behavior assumption. To verify the

Mechanical characterization and micromechanical modeling of bread dough. J.Rheol [http://dx.doi.org/10.1122/1.4768463]Submitted by fendi on Mon, 2013-10-14 04:44.
The mechanical behavior of dough, gluten, and
starch was studied in an effort to investigate whether bread dough can be
treated as a two phase (starch and gluten) composite material. Mechanical
loading tests revealed rate-dependent behavior for both the starch and the
gluten constituents of dough. There is evidence from cryo-scanning electron
microscopy that damage in the form of debonding between starch and gluten
occurs when the sample is stretched. In addition, the Lodge material model was
found to deviate from the tension and shear stress-strain test data by a

Virtual Special Issue: CFD simulation of pedestrian-level wind conditions around buildings: past achievements and prospectsSubmitted by Laure Ballu on Thu, 2013-10-10 13:31.
This Virtual Specail Issue deals with papers on CFD simulation of pedestrian-level wind conditions around buildings, published in the Journal of Wind Engineering and Industrial Aerodynamics (JWEIA).
Hydrogels that undergo a volume phase transition in response to an
external stimulus are of great interest because of their possible use as
actuator materials. The performance of an actuator material is normally
characterized by its force–stroke curve, but little is known about the
force–stroke behavior of hydrogels. We use the theory of the ideal
elastomeric gel to predict the force–stroke curves of a
temperature-sensitive hydrogel and introduce an experimental method for
measuring the curve. The technique is applied to PNIPAm hydrogels with
low cross-link densities. The maximum force generated by the hydrogel
increases with increasing cross-link density, while the maximum stroke
