NRC Research Fellowship Opportunity at Duke University

Researchers at Duke University are seeking applications for NRC research associates, to work with Professors David Stepp and John Dolbow.  The NRC program is unique in the sense that applicants have the opportunity to perform research on a program they design.  The positions are well-paid fellowships and are nominally for two years, extendable to a third.

Workshop on Probing the Limits of Strength, August 10-12, 2009 at LBL, Berkeley, CA

Dear Colleague:
 
You are cordially invited to attend a special Workshop on Probing the Limits of Strength, which will be held at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory on August 10-12, 2009. This workshop aims to bring together researchers with an interest in experimental and theoretical studies of the fundamental limits of strength in materials. The workshop will include a strong lineup of national and international speakers on advanced mechanical testing techniques and computational materials science of materials deformation at the elastic limit.

UK Newton Post-Doc Fellowship in Computational Mechanics

 
Dear All,

A new multi-million pound initiative to fund research collaborations and improve links between UK and overseas researchers has been launched.

The Newton International Fellowships aim to attract the most promising, early stage, post-doctoral researchers working overseas, who do not hold UK citizenship, in the fields of humanities, engineering, natural
and social sciences.

Postdoctoral Fellowship studying mechanics of hydraulic fracturing for stimulation of hot fractured rock geothermal reservoirs

CSIRO Petroleum in Melbourne, Australia, welcomes applications to a Postdoctoral Fellowship
in hydraulic fracture stimulation mechanics. The successful candidate
will have a background in applied mechanics and numerical methods with
an interest in verifying numerical calculations by experiment.  The
research results will be applied to stimulation of hot fractured rock
geothermal reservoirs.

Max penetration error in ABAQUS

I am doing contact simulation of soft material. I want to change the default criterion for max penetration error, but can't seem to find how to do it. I tried contact controls relative and absolute penetration tolerances, hcrit but that did not affect the error criterion. Can someone help me please?

Time dependent vs Independent

In Computational mechanics, for rate(time) dependent calculations (eg. Creep, plasticity), when we say time step dt, does it mean physical time.

Can I think this way:

I start at time 0 and calculate stress, strain etc  after 1 sec, 2 sec, 3 sec..

Also, what exactly is strain rate? why do some books say ..'when a strain rate is applied'''..I'm confused..dont we just apply displacement or force all the time.

Post-doctoral research associate position

The Computational Science and Engineering Program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is seeking highly qualified candidates for one post-doctoral research associate position in the Center for Simulation of Advanced Rockets.

Ph.D. Research Assistantship in Multi-Scale/Multi-Physics Material Modeling at the University of Colorado, Boulder

A graduate student researcher is sought to work on a theoretical and computational aspect of multiscale/ multi-physics material modeling (with an emphasis on biological materials and structures). The project’s envisioned outcome is to a better understanding of the relationship between the small scale physics and structures and the overall macroscopic properties of a material. This research has application in the design of new, smart material, or in the development of treatment for injuries and disease of biological tissues.

Post-doc position on Multiscale Simulations of Cell Contact and Adhesion

A post-doc position on multiscale simulation of cell contact and adhesion shall be available this coming Fall at UC Berkeley. We are seeking for a person who has experience and background on finite element computations, especially in cell contact/adhesion modeling and simulation or finite deformation simulations.

Anyone who is interested in the position please send an email, resume, and reference to li@ce.berkeley.edu

PhD projects in computational fracture and computational/theoretical fluids at University of Melbourne
