2 Post Doctoral researcher positions in Computational Mechanics of Materials

Two post doctoral positions are available at the University of Limerick, Ireland. The object of the research, which is funded by Science Foundation Ireland (SFI), is to obtain an understanding of the mechanical behaviour of ferritic and martensitic steels at the micron and sub-micron scale and to link this behaviour to component behaviour. The work will involve computational and experimental studies of material behaviour using a range of numerical and experimental techniques.

PhD Position in Computational Ice Mechanics at Aalto University, Finland

We are looking for a doctoral student to join our Arctic Marine and Ice Technology research group at the Aalto University, Department of Applied Mechanics, to study ice-structure interaction process in shallow water.  In this complex interaction process an intact ice sheet fails into discrete ice blocks, which affect further stages of the process. Realistic calculations of ice loads due to this process require modeling of the ice blocks and their pile-up process.

Cellular Automata for Multi-scale Fracture

Could cellular automata be used to model mechanisms (for quasi-brittle fracture) that occur at the meso-scale and then feed these mechanisms to a macro-scale finite element model? Is it possible to replace constitutive models with mechanistic models, simulating mechanisms that lead to fracture instead of formulating equations that predict failure? These are typical questions that have motivated my recent collaboration with Dr Anton Shterenlikht at the University of Bristol.

CONSTITUTIVE MODELS FOR STRONGLY CURVED BEAMS IN THE FRAME OF ISOGEOMETRIC ANALYSIS

The current development of the isogeometric approach in various fields of mechanics is explained by the high-accuracy results which can be achieved at a reduced computational cost by codes based on non-uniform rational B-splines (NURBS). In the case of strongly curved beams the simple diagonal de Saint-Venant’s constitutive model can lead to significant errors as it has been reported in the classic literature. Other models such as Winkler’s have been proposed and seem more suitable for these kinds of structures.

PhD Robust Optimization Viscoelastic Sandwiches

Visco-elastic structures are widely employed for vibration damping. Nowadays, optimal design of these structures has become commonplace. However, operating conditions introduce variability in their performances. Taking into account this variability in the optimization loop is necessary to obtain optimal robust solutions.

Postdoc in multi-scale modelling of composites vibration response @ Ghent University (Belgium)

Nowadays, there is an increasing interest to use composite materials in automotive applications, in particular the use of fibre-reinforced plastics (carbon or glass fibres in a polymer matrix) is widely considered. The use of lighter materials, and hence a reduced fuel consumption, can be one of the possible solutions for reduced CO2 emissions.
