Ph.D. Candidate Position on “Characterization of the local mechanical behavior of elastomer materials by instrumented nanoindentation”

One Ph.D. candidate position is available in the Fall 2017 in the Elastomer Research Center (Cermel) at the Laboratory of Mechanics and Rheology (LMR) in the Polytechnic School of the University of Tours in France.

Job description

The aim of this Ph.D. is to extend the comprehension of the local mechanisms involved in elastomer materials, in order to faithfully reproduce their behavior in finite element models. The Ph.D. applicant is expected to carry out both theoretical and experimental work.

Additive Manufacturing (3D printing) lab at TU Delft

After several years of research in the area of additive manufacturing, biofabrication, and additively manufactured biomaterials and implants, I finally put up the first version of the website of my lab. I will gradually improve the website, but there is already links to all publications coming out of my lab in the general area of AM.

 

Which is the best model to capture brittle fracture and failure of ceramics at moderate velocities?

Several models have been developed over the past decades to capture the fracture and failure of ceramic materials. JH2, JHB models are widely used for simulating the behavior of armor plates upon ballistic impact. I have a doubt regarding these models. Are these models only valid when the impact velocity is in the order of 1000m/s, as under such circumstances material transitions from elastic to elastic-plastic regime defined by the HEL Pressure? But what about when the impact velocity of the ceramic is around 300-400 m/s (a fraction of ballistic impact)?

Special Issue on 'Mechanics of Liquid and Solid Foams' freely available online!

This Special Issue of the International Journal of Solids and Structures includes sixteen articles presented at the international symposium: Mechanics of Liquid and Solid Foams. The symposium was organized under the auspices of the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (http://www.iutam.net) and was held at the University of Texas at Austin in May 8-13, 2011. The papers deal with various aspects of mechanical behavior of cellular materials and foams in particular, and represent the state of the art in the field.

ASME Congress IMECE09 Topic on the Mechanical Behavior of Nanocomposite Materials

You are invited to present your research work on the mechanical behavior of nanocomposite materials (Nov. 13-19, 2009 in Florida ). This topic will be focused on systematic mechanics experiments, modeling and simulations to solve new challenging mechanics problems such the effect of nanofiller agglomeration on the stiffness and strength reduction; interfacial stress transferring and interface strength evaluation at the nanoscale.
