PhD positions (TA/RA) available at Penn State

We are looking for PhD candidates to conduct research at the following two interdisciplinary subfields, starting from Spring of 2015. Interested individuals are encouraged to apply (suz10@psu.edu)

1) Mechanics in electrochemistry. We develop atomistically informed continuum mechanics models, coupling mechanics and lithium reaction and diffusion to account for a wide range of in-situ experimental phenoemna. Some recent publications:

Book on elastic wave propagation

Our book Introduction to Elastic Wave Propagation, originally published by Wiley in 1994, is now in the public domain. The book is attached. We intended it to be suitable for a one-semester course or for self-study by students needing background on elastic waves. (The solutions to the exercises are included.) Chapter 1 can also be used as a concise introduction to linear elasticity.

Representative Volume Element Calculations under Constant Stress Triaxiality, Lode Parameter, and Shear Ratio

Recent experiments showed that the Lode parameter, which distinguishes between axisymmetric and shear dominated stress states, has a profound effect on material ductility, especially at low stress triaxiality. Consequently, the theoretical framework for void growth and coalescence is currently being revisited, which often involve performing representative volume element (RVE) calculations. The present study investigates an RVE composed of a cubic unit cell containing a spherical void at its center.

Fatigue of multiscale composites with secondary nanoplatelet reinforcement: 3D computational analysis

3D numerical simulations of fatigue damage of multiscale fiber reinforced polymer composites with secondary nanoclay´reinforcement are carried out. Macro–micro FE models of the multiscale composites are generated automatically using Python based software. The effect of the nanoclay reinforcement (localized in the fiber/matrix interface (fiber sizing) and distributed throughout the matrix) on the crack path, damage mechanisms and fatigue behavior is investigated in numerical experiments.

Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Computational Mechanics - The George Wasgington University

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the George Washington University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the level of Assistant Professor starting fall semester 2015. The primary field of interest is mechanics of geomechanical and structural systems. Applications from women and under-represented minority groups are strongly encouraged.

Micromechanical Study of the Interface Properties in Concrete Repair Systems

Hi all,

We've recently published a paper on

Micromechanical Study of the Interface Properties in Concrete Repair Systems

It deals with nanoindentation and numerical simulation of the interface zone in concrete repair systems.

Greetings

Strain hardening

The attached notes are written for a course on plasticity.  I will update new posts on my twitter account:  https://twitter.com/zhigangsuo.  Rheology is the science of deformation. This science poses a question for every material: given a history of stress, how do we find the history of strain?

Post Doctoral Position

Open Post Doctoral Position in Biomechanics for 2 years, fully employed, at the Institute of Biomechanics in Graz, Austria.

Graphene reinforced polymer composites: 3D micromechanical modelling, damage and fracture

3D computational model of graphene reinforced polymer composites is developed and applied to the analysis of damage and fracture mechanisms in the composites. The graphene/polymer interface properties are determined using the inverse modeling approach. The effect of composite structure, in particular, of the aspect ratio, shape, clustering, orientation and volume fraction of graphene platelets on the
mechanical behavior and damage mechanisms of nanocomposites are studied in computational experiments.

Sutured tendon repair; a multi-scale finite element model.

We've recently published an open access journal paper that looks at the mechanics of sutures used to repair severed tendons. A homogenization strategy is used to derive effective elastic properties for tendon fibrils and intracellular matrix. We have found that regions of high stress correlate with the regions of cell death (necrosis) that are sometimes observed in patients.

If this is of interest, please feel free to view the paper here.

Micromechanics of collective buckling in CNT turfs

Complex structures consisting of intertwined, nominally vertical carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are called turfs. Under uniform compression experiments, CNT turfs exhibit irreversible collective buckling of a layer preceded by reorientation of CNT segments. Experimentally observed independence of the buckling stress and the buckling wavelength on the turf width suggests the existence of an intrinsic material length.

Post-doc application still open in Southampton

There is still time to apply the 5-year post-doctoral position at the University of Southampton. We are looking for a talented young researcher to join a group working on the definition of the next generation of high strain rate tests based on ultra-high speed deformation imaging and inverse identification (PhotoDyn project).
