Two PhD positions on computational and experimental multiscale mechanics at Eindhoven University of Technology, Netherlands

Our Mechanics of Materials Group at Eindhoven University of Technology, Netherlands has two openings for talented PhD students in the field of multiscale mechanics of materials. They are part of a European Union funded project on multiscale methods for advanced materials. One opening is onthe development of a fundamentally new multiscale approach towards material modelling and the other aims to integrate this approach with experimental methods.

More information can be found via the following links, via which candidates may also directly apply. Remaining questions may be directed to me (R.H.J.Peerlings@tue.nl).

Faculty Position in Engineering Science & Mechanics at Virginia Tech

The Department of Engineering Science and Mechanics (ESM) at Virginia Tech seeks applicants for a tenure-track faculty position as an experimentalist in one of the general areas of dynamical systems, fluid mechanics, or solid mechanics. The appointment will be at the rank of assistant professor. Successful applicants are required to have a doctoral degree in a relevant field of science or engineering, and are expected to: have a strong and broad scholarly interest in the mechanical sciences, develop and maintain an active, externally-funded research program, and teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Intellectual depth is more important than the specific area of specialization.

speckle pattern interferometry/stress measurment method

I’m working on optical method for displacement measurement. and this is interesting to know more about application and development of these methods like ESPI , SHEAROGRAPHY anf HOLOGRAPHY . for example i face with a company that climb their product can give displacement and so strain field in many material and many geometry even in 3-D shapes!!
