Educational iPad app on structural mechanics

I would like to share with fellow mechanicians an educational iPad app I recently developed. The name of the app is Truss Me! and the main goal is to help students, all the way from high school to college, to build intuition on how truss structures behave. The video below highlights some features of the app:

Virtual Fields Method for the dynamic behaviour
characterisation of metallic materials under purely inertial loads


Inelastic material parameter identification is usually performed
using simple or standardized specimens and unidirectional loadings in order to
stress the specimen with a uniformed field (uni-axial tension, torsion, etc.). However,
these tests, called statically determined, become much more complex to analyse

The Department of Engineering Science and Mechanics (ESM) at Virginia Tech seeks applicants for a tenure-track or tenured faculty position in the general area of dynamical systems with applications to mechanics. Appointment will be at the rank of assistant, associate or full professor. Exceptionally qualified candidates may also be eligible for a named professor appointment.

Molecular Dynamics from Solid Mechanics Point of View

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

I am searching for a tutorial or a book which looks into molecular
dynamics method from a Solid Mechanics point of view. All I can find are
the books written for biophysicists or chemistry. I can find lot of
examples on fluids, biomolecules or polymers but none of them are on
simple solids or metals.

Can anyone suggests me a book or a tutorial which can get me ready to
write a program to simulate a simple tensile test of a metal wire (FCC
Al or some simple crystal).

Full-scale dynamic response of an RC building under weak seismic motions using earthquake recordings, ambient vibrations and mod

 In countries with a moderate seismic hazard, the classical methods
developed for strong motion prone countries to estimate the seismic
behaviour and subsequent vulnerability of existing buildings are often
inadequate and not financially realistic. The main goals of this paper
are to show how the modal analysis can contribute to the understanding
of the seismic building response and the good relevancy of a modal model
based on ambient vibrations for estimating the structural deformation
under weak earthquakes. We describe the application of an enhanced modal
analysis technique (frequency domain decomposition) to process ambient
vibration recordings taken at the Grenoble City Hall building (France).

Rigid Body Dynamics. Need help.

I'm having problem with the following problem. The encircled portion of the figure is giving me trouble. I am getting confused on how to correlate it with reference frame oxyz. please help.

what is the significance of distance r for calculating angular velocity of the reference axis oxyz?

 
I need to find out the components of the absolute acceleration of O along ox,oy& oz.

Two Ph.D. positions are open at the University of Brescia, Italy
