Haythornthwaite Foundation/Applied Mechanics Division - 2013 Student Travel Awards
The ASME Applied Mechanics Division Executive Committee continues to seek ways to involve and encourage younger members and particularly graduate students in the activities of the AMD Division. Through the generous annual support of The Robert M. and Mary Haythornthwaite Foundation 10 travel grants were awarded in 2013. These travel grants are offered to U.S. graduate students currently enrolled at U.S. universities or colleges presenting a paper in any field of applied mechanics. The winners were:

Haythornthwaite Foundation and the Applied Mechanics Division - 2013 Research Initiation Grant Awards
Two PhD positions in my research group are immediately available. Both positions involve the design, analysis, and implementation of numerical methods for computer aided design, analysis, and optimization with particular emphasis on complex multiphysics systems.
Candidates applying for a position should have a BS (and, preferably, an MS) in mechanical/civil/aerospace engineering, applied mathematics, computer science, or physics, and the ideal candidate will have a solid background in computational mechanics, computer aided design, and scientific computing including programming experience in C/C++.
The engineering analysis group at Baxter Healthcare has an immediate opening for an FEA analyst at the Senior Principal Engineer level. The person will work from the Baxter R&D facility in Suzhou, China, and report to the manager of analysis group in Round Lake, IL.

A new paper on the OEC fatigue problem: “Determination of Early Failure Sources and Mechanisms for Al 99.7% and Al-Mg-Si Alloy Bare Conductors Used in Aerial Transmission Lines”, by S. Karabay and E. Feyzullahoglu. Paper has been accepted for publication in March 2014 in the “Engineering Failure Analysis” journal. Abstract can be found on-line: http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.engfailanal.2013.12.002
Applications are invited for a PhD position (four years) and a post-doctoral position (three years) in the area of computational modelling in the Computational Mechanics of Materials group of the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands.
The successful applicants will work with Dr. Angelo Simone on a project funded by the European Research Council through the ERC Consolidator grant StruBa (Computational Modelling of Structural Batteries). The positions are to commence in June 2014 or as soon as possible thereafter.
More information on the positions and the application procedure can be found here.
Since James Watt, a Scottish inventor, invented the steam engine, human civilization relies more and more on energy supply. The re-rise as an international superpower and the global energy crisis are challenging China and the world. We are at a transitional age. On the one hand, we see the technology advances in exploration and development of oil and gas, a depleting resource; and the growth in handling ageing and decommissioning. On the other hand, we see ideas and plans for new energy structure in the future.
The class started today. I'll be teaching fracture mechanics this semester. I'll be mostly using the class notes I wrote in 2010, but will post updated ones.
In today's class I covered "Trouble with linear elastic theory of strength." I have just posted updated notes of the lecture. The new notes begin with the follwoing paragraphs.
In phase field method how one can specify the crack in fixed grid?
In case of finite element method one uses two overlapping nodes to model crack, which nodes separate after crack propagation. In case of phase-field, generally people use fixed grid finite difference method. My question is how the same node point can show two different displacements when crack has passed through it like FEM?
ACADEMICS! It's your chance to shine: Submit a poster to be considered for display at the 2014 SCC. All submissions will receive a FREE t-shirt (while supplies last) :) If chosen, you'll have the chance to see and be seen by top professional in the industry. Good luck!

I recently posted a free, online, and
condensed version of my book Intermediate Mechanics of Materials, Second
Edition. It is posted on my website madhuvable.org
and can be used for reference or by self-learners. In addition to the
online book, there is a glossary of mechanics terms, brief reviews of
Statics, Matrix Algebra, Numerical Methods, and Mechanics of Materials.
This complements my earlier free-online book Introduction to Mechanics of Materials posted on this link .
