European computational mechanics degrees

I'm looking for a good quality master's degree in computational mechanics. I currently live in Australia, and would prefer to study in Europe (must be an English based program as well). I have undergradaute degrees in mechanical engineering and computer science.

Two main degrees that stick out for me are the ones at the University of Stuttgart, and the Technical University of Munich.

Two PhD positions in computational and experimental multiscale mechanics of materials – Eindhoven, Netherlands

Our Mechanics of Materials Group at Eindhoven University of Technology, Netherlands, in association with Materials innovation institute M2i, has two openings for talented PhD students in the field of multiscale mechanics of materials. They are part of a project on multiscale hygro-mechanics of paper. The industrial background of the project is in inkjet-printing. One opening is on experimental characterisation and the other on multiscale computational modelling.
For exceptionally suited young doctors we may consider changing the positions into PostDoc positions.

Ramm's Arc length method

Can anyone please tell me the alogotithm for E Ramm's arc length method. I am using the following type of algorithm but am not getting the correct result----

 u{0}, lamda=0

Fext

n no of steps

Kg (stiffness with u{0})

u1=(Kg)^-1 * Fext'

[L D]=ldl(Kg)

m=det(D)

arc_length=norm(u1)

lamda= 0.1*arc_length/sqrt(u1'*u1+1)

if m<0

lamda=-lamda

end

u=lamda*u1

iterations:

Kg(u{0}+u)

Fint(u{0}+u)

Fres=Fint-lamda*Fext

ur=-inv(Kg)*Fres'

Second Call for Minisymposia: 12th US National Congress on Computational Mechanics

Candidates with a strong background in computational mechanics of solids, interfacial mechanics, granular materials and computational methods are highly encouraged to apply.

 

FEM versus FFT

Dear all,

In micomechanics, homogenization of heterogeneous
materials based on FEM is traditional. Homogenization based on FFT technique has been recently found (in many literatures) to have much more advantages
in term of accuracy, computational cost and resource consumption.

I am wondering why FEMs are still
widely used in education, research, and industries of
generally
computational
mechanics ?

Please could anyone help me to clarify
my question?

Thanks
