Truss Me! It’s great for learning

In a large "Mechanics of Materials" class at ETH Zurich, I incorporated an educational game, Truss Me!, into the class. It showed the potential gaming apps have in enhancing traditional teaching of mechanics.

One Ph.D position in Mechanics of Materials starting from Spring, 2014

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.

Effect of Surface Energy on Mechanical Behaviour of Nano Structural Elements

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

Post doctoral position available--nanophotonics

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.

PhD position - Modelling of confinement and interfacial effects in small scale plasticity

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

Some example videos of my new YouTube channel course "Mechanics of Materials" (italian)

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.

Solid Mechanics Professorship at Imperial College London

Professorship in the Mechanics of Materials Division
Department of Mechanical Engineering
Imperial College London

Imperial College is one of Europe's leading teaching and research institutions and the Department of Mechanical Engineering had the highest possible rating in the last Research Assessment Exercise.



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.
