PhD position in computational mechanics

We are looking for a doctoral student to work on numerical modelling of fragmentation of quasi-brittle materials. In more detail, you will study breakage and fragmentation of ice blocks. These phenomena occur under compressive loads in ice block to ice block contacts. The fragmentation process is complicated, and requires novel numerical modelling techniques. Modelling may need to be done on different scales, which may have to reach from very high resolution modeling to simplified contact models on larger scale.

Postdoctoral and PhD positions in Stochastic Computational Mechanics, Duke University

Several positions at the PhD and postdoctoral levels are available in the group of Prof. Guilleminot at Duke University. The ideal candidates should have a particular interest in conducting interdisciplinary research at the interface of computational mechanics, materials science and uncertainty quantification. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) stochastic modeling and computational frameworks for large-scale nonlinear materials and systems, statistical inverse problems and multiscale approaches.

PhD position in computational solid / fracture mechanics

Hello,

I have a PhD position available for a project titled "Asynchronous, Parallel-Adaptive Solution of Extreme Multiscale Problems in Seismology" funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF). The research involves:

a. Formulation of contact / fracture models (interfacial and/or bulk) for seismic applications, e.g. anisotropic, inhomogeneous rock under dynamic loads.

b. Adaptive spacetime time discontinuous Galerkin formulation for the solution of multiphysics PDEs relevant to this application.

c. High performance computing aspects of the method.

Mixed assumed-strain finite element model for laminates

Fibre-reinforced plates and shells are finding an increasing interest in engineering applications; in most cases dynamic phenomena need to be taken into account. Consequently, effective and robust computational tools are sought in order to provide reliable results for the analysis of such structural models. In this paper the mixed assumed-strain laminated plate element, previously used for static analyses, has been extended to the dynamic realm. This model is derived within the framework of the so-called First-order Shear Deformation Theory (FSDT).
