PhD or Postdoc position in Materials Mechanics/Numerics/Statistical Physics

Development of advanced materials for high-end applications is driven by the increasing understanding of the dynamics and properties of defect microstructures, leading to the ability to synthesize and control materials microstructures to meet specific application demands. Dislocation motion is the fundamental physical mechanism of the plastic deformation process in crystalline materials.

Multistable Architected Materials for Trapping Elastic Strain Energy

3D printing and numerical analysis are combined to design a new class of architected materials that contain bistable beam elements and exhibit controlled trapping of elastic energy. The proposed energy-absorbing structures are reusable. Moreover, the mechanism of energy absorption stems solely from the structural geometry of the printed beam elements, and is therefore both materials- and loading-rate independent.

PhD Position in Arterial Biomechanics and MR Imaging in Trinity College Dublin

The aim of the research project is to develop a means of identifying alterations in collagen fibre architecture of arteries in vivo using non-invasive imaging techniques that can be linked with disease progression. DT-MRI has been used to characterise fibre patterns in animal tissue and this project will explore the means by which this can be enhanced in human tissue. Potential applications of the NODDI (neurite orientation dispersion and density imaging) protocol in arterial tissue will be explored.

Call for Abstracts _TMS 2016: Additive Forming of Components - Tailoring Specific Material Properties in Low Volume Production

Advancements in additive manufacturing technology have created the ability to design and construct parts with geometries and properties that cannot be achieved through traditional machining processes. This ability has promoted new design strategies whose success relies on close integration of engineering with materials science. Of particular interest is tailoring specific material properties in low-volume production.
