EMI San Diego Mini-symposium on Geomechanics (MS61)

Dear colleagues, 

We would like to invite you to submit abstracts for our mini-symposium (MS61) on Computational Geomechanics in the upcoming EMI conference (June 4-7, 2017) at San Diego. The scope of the mini-symposium is listed below:

Postdoctoral Associate

            The University of Notre Dame, Center for Shock Wave-processing of Advanced Reactive Materials (C-SWARM), is seeking a highly qualified candidate for the postdoctoral associate position in the area of computational mechanics/physics with emphasis on chemically reactive solids. C-SWARM is center of excellence established by National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) whose primary focus is on the emerging field of predictive science.

New Text on Engineering Mechanics (Strength of Materials)

 

After many years of teaching elementary mechanics and being unhappy with the high price of existing texts and their tendency to lead students into a game of pattern matching as opposed to thinking about fundamentals, I decided to assemble my lectures into a book.  So if you are looking for something different and concise on this topic you may wish to have a look at this book.  The book is also well suited for use as a refresher due to its brevity.
