PhD Position in Computational Mechanics of Glasses, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology

Friction and wear are important processes that determine the function of many mechanical devices, but their underlying microscopic physical principles are complex and often not well understood. Amorphous – or glassy – materials often form on surfaces that have experienced frictional loading. The research will involve large-scale molecular dynamics simulation of the near-surface deformation upon indentation and scratching of network and bulk metallic glasses.

WOM 2013 - First Announcement and Call for Papers - deadline 1 June 2012

The 19th International Conference on Wear of Materials with take place in Portland, Oregon, USA, 14-18 April 2013. Two typed of papers ar invited: 1) full-length research-qulity papers that involve materials aspects of wear, wear analysis and wear modeling, and 2)shorter, concise case studies. Both categories of papers will be peer reviewed for technical quality.

 All submissions should be made online at www.wearofmaterialsconference.com by 1 June 2012

 

 

Two Nano-Tribology postdoctoral positions in Tel Aviv University


Two postdoctoral positions are available in the group of Prof. M. Urbakh in lively Tel-Aviv. Topics are centered around nano and micro-scale tribology (friction, dissipation, adhesion, wear) involving theory, modeling, and computer simulation of frictional and nonlinear
dissipation phenomena.

WOM 2011 - 18th International Conference on Wear of Materials, Philadelphia, USA - Call for stand alone posters.

Submissions are now closed for oral presentations to WOM 2011, however, contributions are invited for stand-alone posters. WOM 2011 is to take place in Philadelphia, USA - April 3-7 next year.  It will focus on both the fundamental and applied aspects of wear and friction of materials at the macro-, micro- and nano-scale. Special emphasis will be placed on wear issues in harsh environments, energy conversion, and debris particle generation and its impact on the environment.

Ph.D position at EPFL-LSMS, Switzerland

Graduate assistantship positions are available in the Computational olid Mechanics Laboratory (http://lsms.epfl.ch/) at the Ecole olytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (http://www.epfl.ch/).
We are interested in highly motivated Ph.D. candidates with an academic background (B.S. and M.S.) in either Mechanical Engineering, Civil ngineering or Computational Materials Science.

Program available for 1st IC Abrasive Processes

The oral presentation program for the 1st International Conference on Abrasive Processes (ICAP-1) is now available at the conference website (www.icap.elsevier.com). Evolving from earlier meetings [the International Conference on Liquid and Solid Impact (ELSI-IX) and the International Conference on Erosive and Abrasive Wear (ICEAW-II)], ICAP-1 will be held in the historic city of Cambridge, England, 21-25 September 2008. You are invited to join your peers by registering for this popular single-stream meeting.
