PhD Position in Sustainable Infrastructure Materials (Multiscale material modelling and experimental study) – University of Rhode Island, RI, USA

PhD positions are available in experimental study and computational multiscale modelling of sustainable infrastructure materials (http://web.uri.edu/sustainable-materials/) at the University of Rhode Island, Kingston, RI, United States. The students will be enrolled in the Department of Civil and environmental Engineering at the University of Rhode Island.

Line Spring elements errors

Hello, All

***Problem ***

Failure pressure for Steam generator tube having 2 axial cracks. I am following one paper in that paper they found failure pressure by finding J and K values for line spring elements for different pressure. The pressure at which it approach material JIC(92N/mm) and KIC(65Mpa*sqrt(m)) value is considered as failure pressure or coalescence pressus

Cellular Automata for Multi-scale Fracture

Could cellular automata be used to model mechanisms (for quasi-brittle fracture) that occur at the meso-scale and then feed these mechanisms to a macro-scale finite element model? Is it possible to replace constitutive models with mechanistic models, simulating mechanisms that lead to fracture instead of formulating equations that predict failure? These are typical questions that have motivated my recent collaboration with Dr Anton Shterenlikht at the University of Bristol.

Smeared Crack and Cohesive zone modeling of concrete in ABAQUS

Can anybody help me in using smeared crack and cohesive zone modeling in concrete for different grades. I was actually facing problem in using the same to identify fracture parameters of concrete using ABAQUS. I will also be helpful if anyone let me know about an alternate method to find fracture parameters of concrete using ABAQUS apart from using models. Thanks in advance.......

interaction of stress intensity factor for perpendicular cracks

hai friends,

me doing engineering design... my project tite is "interaction of stress intensity factor for perpendicular cracks" this is y final yr project....pls guide me finding problem & knowing about the fracture mechanics and the purpose of stress intenssity factor..i really need the ansys analysis procedure for creating perpendicular cracks... pls help me friends ...send some link or web page ..

 PLS send details to my mail id    ashwin.prabhu1990@gmail.com

thank you!!

6th International Conference on Fracture, Composites and Adhesives 11-15 September 2011

This will be the 6th International Conference in the series organised by the European Structural Integrity Society - Technical Committee 4 on Fracture Mechanics related to Polymers, Polymeric Composites and Adhesives. We are again inviting papers in the areas reflecting the current and future interests of TC4 as listed below.

Both experimental and analytical work is sought in order to give a balanced view of the subject areas:
