The 6th International PhD Student Workshop on Durability of Reinforced
Concrete will be held in Delft, The Netherlands, during July 4 and 5,
2013, hosted by TUDelft. After a series of successful workshops, most
recently in Espoo (2012), Madrid (2010) and Guimarães (2009), IPSW2013
will be held under the auspices of RILEM EAC (Educational Activities
Committee), aiming to bring together young researchers in the field of
durability of concrete.
This workshop, aimed at PhD students dealing with concrete durability (in a broad sense), is free of charge.

Two postdoctoral positions in Computational Chemistry/Materials are to be filled in the group of Peter Kroll in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at UT Arlington, Arlington, TX. The position is available immedeately and should be filled until January 2013.
One project focuses on boron nitride and addresses the conversion from an amorphous pre-ceramic state to cubic boron nitride. The second project is on oxidation mechanisms and kinetics of high-temperature ceramics, with a goal to bridge between atomistic computations and kinetic simulations.
Multiscale Simulations of Domain Structures in Thermoelectric Materials
My co-organizers and I invite you to submit an abstract to the upcoming symposium “Multiscale Perspectives on Plasticity in Metals” at the ASME 2012 International Mechanical Engineering Congress & Exposition (IMECE), to be held November 9-15, 2012 in Houston, Texas. This symposium will explore the unique challenges to understanding plastic deformation in metals and formulating material models that can accurately predict thermo-mechanical deformation. Presentations will cover experimental and modeling investigations of the physical mechanisms that control plasticbehavior in metals, and insight gained on incorporating these mechanisms into high-fidelity models and simulations.

There are several openings for semiconductor process integration at IBM Microelectronics. The reqiured background is quite broad, specifically mechanical engineering background, reliability, failure analysis and modeling with experience in BEOL process and integration. To see more details and to apply online, please click the link below.
Top candidates are sought for a collaborative research project between Dr. Sandra Shefelbine (Department of Bioengineering, Imperial College London) and Dr. Markus Buehler (Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology). This project will use molecular modelling techniques and associated experimental methods to explore the collagen-apatite interface in bone.
Shefelbine’s research group experimentally examines the structure and mechanics of bones (http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/people/s.shefelbine). Buehler’s research group focuses on computational materials science of structural protein materials (http://web.mit.edu/mbuehler/www/).

Students must possess a B.S. degree in Industrial Engineering,Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Materials Science, or relevant field. The following materials are required for application.
Post Doc position available in hybrid design of armor panels (with ceramics, composites) @ NTU, singaporeSubmitted by karthic_newbee on Mon, 2009-12-21 01:50.
There is a Post doctoral Position available with my supervisor Prof.Sridhar Idapalapati. The candidate should have PhD degree with background in impact mechanics, fracture mechanics and exposure to finite element modeling packages such as AUTODYN software. Exposure (handson) to drop tests or Hopkinson bar tests is an added advantage.

The Lurie Nanofabrication Facility (LNF) is the University of Michigan site of the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network (NNIN) and is hiring a new domain expert in computation and modeling.
Develop and coordinate computational modeling and simulation capabilities for users of the LNF. Focus on capabilities related to MEMS/NEMS, including micro and nano fluidics devices and structures.
Support the needs of LNF community in terms of computational modeling and simulation of MEMS/NEMS devices and structures covering multiple domains involving mechanical, thermal, fluidic, and electronic signals.
Tarbela dam is one of the largest
earth filled dam. Tarbela dam lake has height of 485 ft above the river bed and a reservoir size of
100 sq mi, reservoir capacity. It in
one of the largest man made reservoir constructed in 1970. The importance of
the dam can be realized due to the fact that this dam is on river Indus which
is considered as the backbone of Pakistan in terms of water storage, irrigation
and power generation. Main purpose of the Tarbela dam was to govern the flows
of the Indus River for irrigation purposes. In addition it is one of the
biggest sources of electricity generation. Sediment level at Tarbela Lake is
increasing across the years and there is a need to device methods to stop this
Horacio Espinosa and I welcome the submission of new abstracts for a minisymposium on "Mechanics of Crystalline Nanostructures", to be held at the 2010 US National Congress on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (USNCTAM 2010), June 27-July 2 at Penn State University.
I need to create a semi-elliptical surface crack in a cylinder using ANSYS. CTMOPT macro allows modeling and meshing of this type of crack, but I am struggling to get this. If anyone knows detailed information regarding this, kindly let me know.
