5th International Conference on Mechanics of Biomaterials and Tissues (ICMoBT 2013) - Sitges, Spain 8-12 December 2013
Register before 27th September and take advantage of our Early Bird offer!http://www.mechanicsofbiomaterials.com/conference-register.html
One Ph.D position starting from Spring, 2014 is available in the Mechanical Engineering Department at Temple University, Philadelphia, PA, US.
The research program will focus on mechanics of multi-functional materials and structures, thin film, mechanical self-assembly, and their novel applications in healthcare, energy absorption, and energy harvesting, etc. The research will involve a combination of experiments, modeling, and simulation methods (FEM and MD etc). Candidates with experimental or modeling background and interests in solid mechanics, mechanical engineering, materials science, and bio-engineering are highly encouraged to apply.
Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) Specialist/Research Professor Position at Temple University, Composites LaboratorySubmitted by hutapea on Mon, 2012-12-03 14:20.
This position will support all activities in a SEM/microscopy lab including sample preparation, inspection, documentation, and elemental analysis by SEM-EDS as well as managing the operation of the lab. The candidate may be required to teach courses in related areas.
The applicant is expected to have a strong and documented background in several of the following areas:
- Knowledge of basic and advanced techniques in electron microscopy, EDS, general maintenance and calibration of equipment.
- Experience with operation of optical microscopes, digital microscopes.
- Experience in dealing with mandatory safety procedures and practices.
Salary and benefits are competitive, with compensation commensurate with experience.
The Department of Civil Engineering at Johns Hopkins University invites applications for an Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor who will strengthen existing departmental efforts in Structures and/or Mechanics of Materials and complement efforts in Systems.
Extremely small size of nano-structures such as beams, sheets and
plates, which are commonly used as components in Nanoelectromechanical Systems
(NEMS), presents a significant challenge to the researchers of nano-mechanics.
Several studies have been developed on the mechanical behavior of nano-sized
bars, tubes, sheets and plates. The results of these studies show that the
elastic modulii of such nano-structural elements depend on their size.
Unfortunately, classical elasticity lacks an intrinsic length scale and thus
At the nanobiophysics laboratory we are looking for a post doc to participate on an experimental work regarding the tuning of fluorescence in nanoparticles under the effect of pressure. We believe that it is the strain rather the pressure that is causing the shift in the emission. We are also investigating this effect using numerical models. While we are looking for an experimentalist urgently we will be looking for a theoretician/numerical guy in a year. All welcome if you have the right attitude and motivation.
The candidate, a PhD in physics or physical-chemistry, materials science, should have a good grasp on solid state physics and spectroscopy.
The laboratory is located at KAUST.
It seems that it will be useful for college students training:
The project is based on the well-known size effect exhibited by metals, i.e
the fact that their strengths are greatly enhanced when at least one
microstructural lengthscale is scaled down to the nanometer range or
when the size of the object is restricted to the micron or sub-micron
range. At these scales the interfaces and their associated properties
play a significant role. This project will focus on the effect of
spatial confinement on the three most common deformation mechanisms:
dislocation glide, mechanical twinning and mechanically-induced
martensitic phase transformations; and will be based on the synergies
between physically-based phenomenological modelling using
strain-gradient plasticity at the highest scale, and thorough
Given the success of my facebook course Mechanics of Materials MMCM see here, we had so many videos and photos, that I suggested the students to create a Youtube channel. Here it is, with many videos based on powerpoint presentations I had from my course, and that of collegues in Torino (Masssimo Rossetto), or some conferences presentations, which the students transformed into videos. Thanks in particular to Mariella Greco, and Simone Legari. Follows examples of the videos. Enjoy! The channel is here .I like the idea of a free University!

J.R.BARBER: INTERMEDIATE MECHANICS OF MATERIALS
Many of you may know my book on Elasticity, but may not be aware that I also wrote an undergraduate book on Intermediate Mechanics of Materials (Published by McGraw-Hill - ISBN 0-07-232519-4). This picks up from the typical elementary Mechanics of Materials course and deals with the next range of topics such as energy methods, elastic-plastic bending, bending of axisymmetric cylindrical shells and axisymmetric thick-walled cylinders. A full Table of Contents and the Preface are given below.
