I am looking for a PhD student to work on computational cellular biomechanics. This position will be available starting in this coming fall semester in the department of mechanical, industrial and systems engineering at University of Rhode Island.
Prior experience in finite element method and biomechanics is a plus. Interested candidates are encouraged to send a CV to Dr. Hongyan Yuan at (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Our Group of Appleid mechanics in Enviormental & Civil Engineering Department at Michigan State University has a few openings for PhD positions to work on Multiscale Modeling of Soft Materials starting ASAP.
A Postdoctoral Research Fellow position in computational damage mechanics is
available immediately at Masdar Institute of Science and Technology in Abu
Dhabi in United Arab Emirates. Masdar Institute is established in collaboration
with Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The research project focuses on
using advanced computational fracture and damage mechanics for simulating the
behavior of advanced materials under different loading and environmental
conditions. The candidate is expected to have a PhD in the field of Mechanical,
Civil, or Aerospace Engineering with solid knowledge of theoretical/computational
solid mechanics; continuum damage mechanics, fracture mechanics,
The abstract submission for the 24th International Workshop on
Computational Mechanics of Materials (IWCMM 24) in Madrid, Spain, on
October 1st-3rd, 2014 is now opened. The deadline for abstract
submission is June 15th, 2014.
The workshop is intended to cover all aspects of modeling and
simulations of the mechanical behavior at different length and time
scales. The materials of interest range from traditional materials such
as metals, alloys, polymers and composites to advanced and emerging
materials and bio-materials.
As part of the 51st Annual Technical Meeting of the Society of Engineering Science (SES 2014) to be held at Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN, on October 1-3 2014, it is our pleasure to invite you to submit an abstract to the Symposium “Issues in computational modeling of damage, fracture and fragmentation of solid materials”.
Structural topology optimization, which aims at placing available material within a prescribed design domain appropriately in order to achieve optimized structural performances, has received considerable research attention since the pioneering work of Bendsoe and Kikuchi. Many approaches have been proposed for structural topology optimization and it now has been extended to a wide range of physical disciplines such as acoustics, electromagnetics and optics.

We discuss the relevance of non-metricity in a metric-affine manifold (a manifold equipped with a connection and a metric) and the nonlinear mechanics of distributed point defects. We describe a geometric framework in which one can calculate analytically the residual stress field of nonlinear elastic solids with distributed point defects. In particular, we use Cartan's machinery of moving frames and construct the material manifold of a finite ball with a spherically-symmetric distribution of point defects.
