WCCM 2012 - Mini symposium on Computational Damage Mechanics of Composite Materials

I am co-organizing a mini-symposium on « Computational damage mechanics of composite materials »  in the World Congress on Computational Mechanics (WCCM 2012) with Dr. Gilles Lubineau at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) and Dr. Glaucio H. Paulino at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Geometry of Non-Linear Continuum Mechanics

This is an attempt to contribute to bring the discussion on non-linear issues in Continuum Mechanics (CM) under the comprehensive supervision of modern differential geometry (DG). Some people would say that engineers do not need so much mathematics, but such an opinion is a sure indicator of lack of knowledge of the matter. In fact I am an engineer, a University teacher and a designer in Structural Engineering and my experience is that a lot of troubles would have been saved to me by a basic training in DG.

PhD position at Mines ParisTech (Centre des matériaux)

A PhD position is avalaible at the Centre des Matériaux of Mines ParisTech (Paris, France). The research will focus on "Experimental and numerical analysis of sustained load cracking in Titanium". The candidates should have a master degree in mechanics, materials sciences and engineering, or computational mechanics. A full decription of the subject is attached. Interested applicants please send a resume to Dr. Matthieu Maziere (

PhD position at Loughborough University: 'Plasticity in small length scales'

As one of the biggest Departments of its kind in the UK, the Wolfson School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering has an international reputation for being at the forefront of technological innovation and for maintaining extensive links with industry.

Journals in Physics and Engineering, and Preprint Servers Like arXiv

Hi all,


1. In the past, we have had quite some discussion regarding both open-access and open-access journals. However the slant in this blog post is different. I am not concerned here much about open-access journals per say.
