PhD Studentship: In-situ quantification of interphase stress during martensitic transformations, Open University, UK

Fully funded PhD studentship at The Open Univeristy campus, Milton Keynes, UK. The aim of this project is to optimise experimental techniques such as digital image correlation (DIC) and focused ion beam (FIB) hole drilling to investigate the micro scale stresses and strains occurring during martensitic transformations. The techniques will be applied to a range of materials from simple steels to complex shape memory alloys. There will also be scope within the project to study martensitic alloys using central facilities such as the ILL, ESRF and Diamond light source.

Two PhD student positions at The University of Sydney, Australia

Two PhD student positions at Particles and Grains Laboratory, The University of Sydney, Australia
 
The research project is concerning the micromechanics of granular materials, which include time-dependent deformation of geo-materials, thermal-mechanical behaviour at elevated temperatures, and transport phenomena in porous media. In this project, the main objectives are to characterise and understand fundamental deformation mechanisms from the grain level, and develop material models with grain-scale information with multi-scale approaches using simulations and experiments.

A highly motivated PhD student is sought for research in
computational methods and inverse problems at the University of Pittsburgh
(Pitt) Department of Bioengineering (BioE).

Looking for an open PhD position in Computational Mechanics

Dear all,

I'm currently achieving a Mines ParisTech post-master degree in computational mechanics at the Center for Metal Forming (CEMEF) in France. I'm looking to a career in computational mechanics software development. To reach this goal, I'm looking out for a PhD in this field. I'm more interested in numerical methods (software engineering) than in rheologic approach of materials. Remeshing methods, crack growth modeling, crash analysis, parallel computing or multidisciplinary optimization are attractive fields I would be motivated to work on.
