An efficient computational technique for modeling dislocation–precipitate interactions within dislocation dynamics

A new computational technique for modeling dislocation interactions with shearable and non-shearable precipitates within the line dislocation dynamics framework is presented. While shearable precipitates are modeled by defining a resistance function, non-shearable ones are modeled by drawing a comparison between the two well-known Orowan and Frank–Read mechanisms. The precipitates are modeled directly within the dislocation dynamics analysis without the need for any additional numerical methods.

University of California Merced - Post Doc and Grad Student Openings

We have openings for post docs and grad students to develop and use atomistic simulations to investigate surface and interface phenomena. Specific research focuses will depend on the applicant’s background, but may include characterization of the interactions and reactions between metallic surfaces and various industrially-relevant liquid adsorbates and exploration of the effects of coupled stresses in determining the size of the contact between nanoscale bodies.

Postdoctoral fellowships in computational mechanics

Applications are invited for two postdoctoral fellowships, attached to the South African Research Chair in Computational Mechanics at the University of Cape Town, South Africa. Preference will be given to candidates with experience in one or more of the following areas: finite element methods for GPUs; preconditioned solvers in nonlinear mechanics; operator-splitting methods for coupled problems.

CALL FOR ABSTRACT: SES Symposium C-4: Mechanical Characterization of Soft Materials: Experiments and Modeling

Soft materials are ubiquitous in nature, from biopolymers, cells, and tissues to organs. In recent years, soft materials have been intensively explored in different engineering applications, ranging from haptic devices to soft robotics, from flexible electronics to biomimetic systems. Fundamental studies of the deformation mechanisms of soft materials and optimal designs in different applications urgently need robust methods for material characterization.
