PhD scholarship in Ecole Polytechnique, Paris, France

One Ph.D. position is now available starting October 2017 on harnessing instabilities in magnetorheological elastomers. The PhD will be pursued in the Solid Mechanics Laboratory of Ecole Polytechnique, Paris, France. The potential student will work on the development of new experimental procedures and numerical models for the fabrication and testing of new magnetorheological elastomeric devices that operate in the postbifurcation regime by proper combination of mechanical and magnetic loadings.

Assistant Professors / Associate Professors in Mechanical Engineering 825559

Department of Engineering (ENG), Aarhus University (AU) invites applications for a number of positions as tenure track assistant professors or associate professors in the field of Mechanical Engineering (ME). The University has ambitious plans to increase its activities significantly within research and education as well as public and industrial collaboration with the vision of bringing AU into the global engineering elite.

Understanding geometric instabilities in thin films via a multi-layer model

Dear Colleagues,

I want to share with you our work on geometric instabilities in thin films, which was recently accepted in Soft Matter.

Dynamic instabilities of frictional sliding at a bimaterial interface

Understanding the dynamic stability of bodies in frictional contact steadily sliding one over the other is of basic interest in various disciplines such as physics, solid mechanics, materials science and geophysics. Here we report on a two-dimensional linear stability analysis of a deformable solid of a finite height H, steadily sliding on top of a rigid solid within a generic rate-and-state friction type constitutive framework, fully accounting for elastodynamic effects.
