The School of Engineering and Materials Science at Queen Mary University of London has a vacancy for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant (PDRA) to develop computational models of ultra-flexible 2D nanomaterials in sheared liquids, using techniques borrowed from computational fluid and solid mechanics.
This paper presents a mathematical model for an industry-inspired problem of vibration isolation applied to elastic fluid-filled containers. A fundamental problem of suppression of vibrations within a finite-width frequency interval for a multi-scale fluid-solid system has been solved. We have developed a systematic approach employing full fluid-solid interaction and dispersion analysis, which can be applied to finite and periodic multi-scale systems.
I am proud to present to i-mechanicians some recent work by my student Andreas Schiffer. We provide a new experimental technique and detailed analytical models to explore one-dimensional underwater blast problems in deep water.
