What are AudioSlides?

AudioSlides are short, webcast-style presentations that are shown next to the article on ScienceDirect. This format gives authors the opportunity to summarize their research in their own words, helping readers to quickly understand what a paper is about and appreciate its relevance.

The Multi-scale Modelling Course for Concrete

Hi all,

Durability of Reinforced concrete from Composition to Protection

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.

International Journal of Refrigeration: Best Paper and Very Highly Commended Papers for 2011/2012

Each year, the Editor-in-Chief and Regional Editors of the International Journal of Refrigeration select two articles of special merit, to be awarded prizes as Best Paper and Very Highly Commended Paper. The awards are sponsored by Elsevier, with prizes of USD1,500 and USD750. Papers are freely available untill 31 December 2012. To access them, go to:

Postdoc positions in Computational Chemistry/Computational Materials

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.

Submit an abstract for IMECE-2012 sympoisum "Multiscale Perspectives on Plasticity in Metals"

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.

Study and Simulation of Tarbela Reservoir with and Without Sedimentation

Study and Simulation of Tarbela Reservoir with and Without Sedimentation

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
