Postdoctoral Fellow- Marine Additive Manufacturing Centre of Excellence

Applications are invited for an immediate  postdoctoral position within the Marine Additive Manufacturing Centre of Excellence at the University of New Brunswick. The candidate will perform research in the area of materials characterization of additively manufactured metals (aluminum or steels) developed through powder bed fusion techniques. The candidate will use several experimental techniques to characterize the 3D printed metals such as OM, SEM, EBSD measurements, fractography, and TEM.

Post-doctoral Fellow Position at Mines ParisTech

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Fellow research position at the Center for Material Forming at Mines ParisTech. The Fellow will focus on computational modeling of discontinuous fibers composites. Code writing ability and strong background in mechanics are required.  Applicants must hold a PhD in Mechanical Engineering, Applied Mathematics, or a related discipline.

From flat sheets to curved geometries: Origami and kirigami approaches

Our recent review paper on how origami and kirigami techniques that could be used to create curved geometries has been just publised online. It is available as an open access article, which is why I am posting it here. We have also included some beautiful photos of our hand-folded origami and kirigami.

Book Review---First book on "Dynamics of Lattice Materials”---by Srikantha Phani and Mahmoud Hussein

“Metamaterials” are the fabled materials exhibiting properties and functionalities that defy expectations. Or at least that's how I have always defined them to myself. These first emerged on the scientific scene in the nineties; or perhaps that is when an extensive flurry of activities on this subject can be traced to. The initial focus was on designing (what appeared to me as) composites with a specific geometrical inner structure that allowed the emergence of electromagnetic properties not typically seen in nature; such as negative refractive index.

Obituary for prof. Paul Paris the inventor of the fatigue crack propagation "Paris' law"

I do not think in Imechanica there has been an obituary for Paul Paris, whose work in fatigue crack propagation is extraordinary and one of the few important and lasting contributions ----- today our aircrafts, both civil and military, all rely on "damage tolerance", which is based on Paris' law.   Paris' law, as every great innovations, was published in 1961 only after rejection by three of the leading journals in the fracture mechanics field.  It bears the name of "law" although of course it is not like Newton's law.  It is a power law, based perhaps on what Barenblatt calls "incomplete"
