Postdoctoral Research Scholar at Sichuan University and Chengdu University, China

Applications are invited for a 24 months fixed term Postdoc/Research Associate post to work as part of the NSFC project “Fatigue damage mechanism and life prediction in bone using 3D micro-CT image correlation techniques”. 

PhD vacancy (4 years) on multi-scale fatigue damage modelling of unidirectional fibre-reinforced composites @ Ghent University (Belgium)

The core idea of this fundamental research project is to develop a consistent multi-scale modelling framework for fatigue damage in unidirectionally reinforced composites. Three scales are distinguished: (i) the micro-scale, where individual fibre filaments are arranged in a polymer matrix.

PhD vacancy (4 years) on simulation and testing of short fibre-reinforced composites for application in heat exchangers @ Ghent University (Belgium)

Almost all heat exchangers are currently made of metal. A few attempts have been made to make heat exchangers from (fibre-reinforced) polymers. Switching from metal to polymer/composite can have several advantages:

Course on Design Principles, Fatigue & Damage Tolerance for Aeronautical Engineers

Dear iMechanicians,

Please note that a 6 day course for aeronautical engineers on design principles, fatigue and damage tolerance will be realized during October and November 2014 in Czech Republic. The course is split to two blocks: Part I - Design Principles; Part II - Fatigue & Damage Tolerance run in the period October 20-22 and November 11-13 respectively.

1st invitation to VAL 2015 conference discussing effects of variable amplitude loading

Dear iMechanicians,

Let me invite you the 3rd International Conference on Material and Component Performance under Variable Amplitude Loading (VAL 2015) taking place in Prague, Czech Republic in March 23-26, 2015. See the details on its website http://www.val-conf.org.

The conference will discuss among others these primary questions:

Project Associate / PhD Positions: Multiscale Simulation of Nano-Composites for Fatigue & Fracture

Applications are invited for few open positions in the area of
multiscale simulation of fatigue and fracture of advanced alloys and
nano-material based composites. Primary focus of this research is investigation
of fatigue and fracture behavior of nanomaterials and to develope various
constitutive models for continuum, based on large scale atomistic simulations.
Research effort will include development of analysis and design methods toward
improving material/structural behaviour using computer simulation. Interested
candidates should have preferably MTech/ME degree in
mechanical/civil/aerospace/material engineering discipline with good knowledge

Research Associate - Modelling of Crack Growth under Fatigue-Oxidation Conditions

A Research Associate is required to undertake an EPSRC-funded project to model oxidation damage at a crack tip and associated crack growth for nickel alloys.

You will join the vibrant Mechanics of Advanced Materials group at Loughborough (www.lboro.ac.uk/moam) which has gained significant experience in the study of mechanical behaviour of advanced materials.
