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

Postdoctoral/Research Associate on Computational Mechanics of Granular Solids

A postdoctoral/research associate position is available in the area of computational modeling of granular materials at Rutgers University working under the supervision of Prof. Cuitino. 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

Immediate opening for a Ph.D. student in computational mechanics and materials at Missouri University of Science and Technology

There is an immediate opening for a Ph.D. student in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T - formerly University of Missouri-Rolla). The Metallurgical Engineering program at Missouri S&T is one of the largest and most respected in the U.S. (http://mse.mst.edu).

The Ph.D. research project is about developing a coupled phase-field crystal plasticity model for predicting stress-strain-microstructures relations during deformation.
