Doctoral Studentship in high strain rate properties of Nickel Alloys

The Department of Engineering Science at Oxford University has recently obtained an iCASE studentship funded by EPSRC and Rolls-Royce plc to perform research into the mechanical behaviour of metals at high temperatures and high strain rates. The studentship provides full funding (fees and stipend) at the home / EU level for 3.5 years.


Size Effect in Fatigue of Metals

Hi everyone,

So it has been a while now that I am trying to understand the concept of size effect seen in fatigue of metals.

As far as I have understood(if correctly!), size effect in metals is more due to a fractal nature, rather than energetical because the fracture process zone is small in metals. I have seen also papers which use fractal theories to account for it.

I have seen a good deal of research done by Bazant for concrete and quasi-brittle materials, but somehow I cannot make a proper analogy for metals.

PhD positions available at Polytechnique Montréal and McGill universities on shot peening with 5 aerospace companies

Ecole Polytechnique and McGill are seeking two PhD candidates for a large project aiming at understanding the effects of shot peening on the fatigue lives of aerospace components. The project involves 8 PhD students that will be working in close collaboration. The project is co-funded by the Canadian goverment and 5 leading aerospace companies located in Montréal. Some projects involve internships at these companies.

We are seeking two students for the following projects:

 


Grants for Workshop on "Physics-based fracture and damage mechanics" in Antalya/Turkey, May 15-17, 2013

We would like to inform you about a Workshop on "Physics-based fracture and damage mechanics" in Antalya/Turkey, May 15-17, 2013.

The workshop is co-organized by the Joint Research Centre (European Commission) and TOBB University of Economics and Technology. The Workshop is funded by the European Commission’s Integration and Enlargement Action. The participants from target countries* (citizen of or working in a target country) can be fully financially supported by the European Commission.

Stress Relaxation

2012-07-10

I would like to seek comments on : Room temperature stress relaxation and governing mechanisms that contribute to the plasticity that occurs during this process. As, most of the available work on relaxation is done at elevated temperatures.

 I have also attach papers by Prof Hart and Prof Krempl that did throw some light on this particular subject.

Metals and Alloys Webinar on Modelling: State of the Art in Casting and Forging Simulation

Thursday 14th June - 12:30pm (BST)

Register now http://bit.ly/1406webinar

Once only accessible at the high-end of manufacturing, modelling and simulation is now widely embraced by the industry as a result of increased processor speeds, the accessibility and usability of software and the reliability and robustness of the models and codes which underpin it.


New International Master Program in Computational Materials Science

Hi,

I am writing to inform you about a new master in Computational Materials Science offered at TU Bergakademie Freiberg, Germany. It is an international master program, and all the lectures will be given in English.

To enhance multidisciplinary research, the program is open to students from different background, mechanical engineering, solid state physics and materials science.

 

For further details, please visit the webpage  at  www.imfd.tu-freiberg.de/cms 

 

Regards,

"Defects and Microstructure at the Nanoscale and Beyond," Mini-symposium at USNCCM-10, July 16-19, 2009

There will be a mini-symposium entitled "Defects and Microstructure at the Nanoscale and Beyond," at the USNCCM-10 conference in Columbus, OH, July 16 -19, 2009.  This topic is of keen interest to the I-Mechanica community and we hope many of you will join us there. Our goal is to bring together researchers from the mechanics, materials, and physics communities to cross-fertilize research on defect-mediated processes in microstructural evolution, with a focus on both hard and soft materials.
