Case Studies in Fire Safety - First papers published! Freely accessible

We are delighted to announce the publication of the first papers in Case Studies in Fire Safety. Case Studies in Fire Safety provides an open forum for the rapid publication of short, structured case studies in fire safety and related short communications providing an essential compendium of case studies for fire protection engineers, designers, researchers and other practitioners in the field of fire safety.

Postdoctoral Position Opening in Solid Mechanics at Columbia University

A postdoctoral research scientist position is available immediately in the Department of Earth and Environmental Engineering at Columbia University. This position is renewable (up to three years) depending on performance. The main responsibility of the project, sponsored by ARPA-E, is to perform computer simulations of crashworthiness of electric vehicles using finite element method. It also involves multiscale modeling of a new type of impact resistant lithium-ion battery, as well as structural design and optimization.

Role of Mechanics in Medical Implant Industry

I believe that questions Zhigang raised today worth discussing as a topic within this forum.  I will start and please comment.

The traditional roles of mechanics in the medical implant industry is to ensure safety through reliability assessment and to prove functionality through in-vitro testing.

Things are changing, in mid-90s, Charley Taylor and his colleagues pioneered "predictive medicine" and "simulation-based medical planning" in which they uses CFD to help making surgical decisions.  Professor Taylor's research in "predictive medicine" and "simulation-based medical planning" has been featured on several television and radio programs including Quantum, Beyond 2000, New Media News, and The Osgood Files and has appeared in Discover, Mechanical Engineering, Technology Review and The Scientist magazines. (statement directly from his web site).  Mechanics goes into the prediction of medicine performances.
