## What fatigue damage model do you suggest to use in numerical simulations?

I want to simulate fatigue damage of foams (like PVCs). What fatigue damage model do you suggest? What model is regularly used in Industry? is there any one who simulate fatigue damage in Abaqus? Any information is welcomed...  Thanks in advance

## What topics are still under development using phase-field modeling?

Dear colleagues,

I wonder to know what topics are still under development using phase field (PF) modeling?

The PF has already applied to 2D, 3D, and shell structures, incorporating homogeneous, inhomogeneous, and heterogeneous materials. It also applied to brittle, ductile, dynamic, cohesive, finite deformation, and multi-field fractures. What else we can model using PF method?

Regards,

Malekan

## PhD position in computational solid mechanics

Aalto University (Finland), Department of Mechanical Engineering, is looking for a doctoral student for a study on the breakage and fragmentation of ice blocks under compressive loads. The fragmentation process is complicated and requires the use of novel modelling methods that can be used reliably on different scales. In addition to the computational work, we will perform experiments on this topic.

## Phase field modeling of damage and fracture in polycrystalline materials, support from the Chinese Scholarship Council

The ability of scientists and engineers to exploit, design and process new materials with improved properties has often been fundamental for the technological advances of societies. In fact, advances in many key domains like aerospace, automotive industry, energy, nanotechnology, rely on our ability to engineer new materials and to exploit their properties.
