The Fluid Dynamics and Solid Mechanics group at Los Alamos National Laboratory is currently seeking outstanding candidates to fill a post-doctoral research position in computational solid/structural mechanics.
The prospective candidate is expected to take part in the development of non-classical, global-local plate/shell finite elements for applications involving the response and/or failure of composite structures under severe dynamic loading conditions.
The Institute of Polymer Engineering has 3 open positions as research assistants in three different fields of polymer research:
- nano polymer technology
- polymer injection technology
- polymer composite technology
Please find more details in attachements.

i am working in composite analysis, can anybody tell me how to perform post buckling analysis using 3d layered solid element in ANSYS or ABAQUS
thanks & regards
I am going to Modena on Monday to talk to my collegues in the Millechili lab (MilleChili means 1000Kg in italian)
A postdoctoral position is avilable in the Composite and Heterogeneous Materials Modeling and Simulation (COHMAS) Laboratory at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST). The successful candidate will be engaged in modeling and simulation of degradation in composite materials.
Iam looking for PhD positions in Composites Mechanics and Manufacturing area.
If you happen to know any information, kindly convey it to me.
Please find my Resume attached for your information.
Thanks and Regards,
The National Committee on Applied Mechanics of Engineers Australia is hosting the 6th Australasian Congress on Applied Mechanics (ACAM 6) in Perth, Australia on December 12th-15th 2010.
ACAM 6 (http://www.acam6.org/) aims to provide an international forum for researchers, industry practitioners, engineers and postgraduate scholars to promote, exchange and disseminate knowledge and experiences of the most recent results and advances in a wide range of topics in Applied Mechanics.
The Hanyang Structures and Composites Laboratory in Hanyang University, Korea seeks a post-doctoral fellow in the broad area of composite materials. The scholar will perform Finite Element Analysis and experimental measurements of short and long term behavior of composite materials. The scholar is supervised by Prof. Sung Ha, and also expected to guide graduate students. Candidates with experiences in manufacturing of composite materials are also encouraged to apply. The nominal starting date is Sept. 1, 2009. Please apply with a CV, recent publication and a list of references to Prof. Sung Ha, firstname.lastname@example.org
How can I model a bridge which consits of a small beam of composite that surrounded with ceramic layerSubmitted by Morteza_Kiani on Thu, 2009-05-28 12:46.
I am going to model a bridge in dental work which it consists of two parts:
1: a small beam which it is made of composite 5 plys
2: a cramic part which surround the beam.
I want to model it with Abaqus. Please help me if you can. I'd appreciate if you help me and send its steps to my email: email@example.com
I am facing some problem in ABAQUS. How can i use Vumat subroutine and how can i findout sresses.Please help me
I am trying to analyze a honeycomb core sandwich assembly in Ansys and am having trouble. Using shell 91 do I input the layers under real constants or as a shell input. Thanks
Composite Vehicle Research Center (CVRC) at MSU has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral research associate to conduct research in non-destructive evaluation (NDE) and structural health monitoring (SHM) of composite materials in an effort to develop self-diagnostic composite structures for air and ground vehicles.
Highly motivated PhD or MS/PhD candidates are sought for research in experimental solid mechanics in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Michigan State University.
I would invite you to present your research work at the Society of Experimental Mechanics Conference (visit www.sem.org for more details). You are welcome to submit your abstract my two sessions:
1. Mechanical Behavior of Nanocomposite Materials
2. Recent Advance in Composite Materials.

Message from Stephen W. Tsai, of Stanford University. After well received, successful completion of Composites Design Tutorial-1, we are pleased to announce Composites Design Tutorial-2 starting on April 8, 2008. This tutorial, comprising of twelve weekly 120-minute live sessions, is offered over the Internet using the cutting edge WebEx application with VoIP. The tutorial is offered to the Eastern and Western Worlds at convenient local time followed by active Q&A in English and other three languages for extended period. This allows the participants to access the tutorial contents on demand 24/7, even after the live tutorial sessions.
Openings for New Ph.D. Students on Composite Materials and Failure Mechanics at Vanderbilt University, USASubmitted by Luoyu Roy Xu on Mon, 2007-10-15 15:12.
New students may start from January 2008 if the graduate students have previous research experience in solid mechanics (e.g., nano/micro-mechanics, computational mechanics) or material engineering (MD simulation, mechanical behaviors). Students will have the opportunities to conduct balanced experimental and computational work on the durabilty and impact failure of marine composite materials; failure and material designs of nanocomposite materials; or rehabilitation of infrastructure materials using composites and other materials. An MS degree is required.
Professor Dr. Liviu Librescu was murdered while teaching a solid mechanics course at Virginia Tech on April 16, 2007.
The great works he left behind are, including, but not limited to, the following books (which are the ones in English):
This blog focuses on the micromechanics modeling of composite materials.
The increasing use of fiber-reinforced composites accentuates the need for developing multi-axial fatigue failure models for these materials. In this article (attached), we proposed several multiaxial fatigue failure models for fiber-reinforced composites considering the contribution of mean and cyclic normal stress/strain and shear stress/strain at the plane of failure and examined their capability for predicting the fatigue life of the E-glass/epoxy composite materials.
