Computational Modeling

PhD position - Development of mesoscale hydro-chemo-mechanical (HMC) modeling approach for concrete deterioration.


The main aim of this project is to develop a robust computational framework for investigating the hydro-chemo-mechanical aspect of concrete carbonation at meso-scale.

Multistable Architected Materials for Trapping Elastic Strain Energy

3D printing and numerical analysis are combined to design a new class of architected materials that contain bistable beam elements and exhibit controlled trapping of elastic energy. The proposed energy-absorbing structures are reusable. Moreover, the mechanism of energy absorption stems solely from the structural geometry of the printed beam elements, and is therefore both materials- and loading-rate independent.

Postdoctoral positions in statistical modeling of fracture and plasticity

We anticipate the opening of four postdoctoral positions in 2012 to work on statistical aspects of fracture and plasticity,  and in particular on size effects in the fracture of  disordered media and in microplasticity.  The positions will be funded by the ERC Advanced Grant 2011, SIZEFFECTS.

Postdoc position available in Compuational Materials Modeling

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering in the College of Engineering at the University of North Texas (UNT) seeks highly qualified applicants for a postdoctoral researcher position in computational materials modeling. The successful candidate will work on multiscale modeling of defects and microstructures (e.g., dislocations, grain boundaries, etc), and damage and failure of materials to design and evaluate advanced superalloys for aerospace applications, as part of the federally-funded research program in the Institute for Science and Engineering Simulation (ISES).

How do ductile materials fail?

This is a review on ductile fracture committed to the Advances in Applied Mechanics (Vol 44). Part of the review has an educational purpose and, as such, is intended for advanced undergraduates and starting graduate students. The other part is an account of recent research conducted in the field.

Post-doctoral postion in Mechanical Engineering at NUS

I have an opening for a post-doctoral position starting early next year (Jan 2009) in the broad area of multi-scale mechanics of nano-crystalline (nc) materials. The focus will be on microstructure mediated failure processes in nc materials primarily using continuum mechanics based approaches, but informed by materials science.

If you are interested, please send me (shailendra[at]nus[dot]edu[dot]sg) your CV and the names of at least two references.

Post-doctoral fellowships in Bioengineering

Highly competitive candidates are sought for locally-funded fellowships in biomechanics at Cambridge University.  The Next Generation Fellowships are being advertised through the new Centre for Trophoblast Research, an interdisciplinary research centre focused on the trophoblast, the critical cell in the development and function of the placenta. 

Positions: Post doctoral and doctoral

Ph.D and post-doctoral positions available immediately in Professor Zikry's rsearch group at North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC.

Currently, we have openings with researchers with backgrounds in computational solid mechanics, atomistic and molecular modeling, multiscale techniques, and fracture mechanics. We also have openings in experimental mechanics.
