The Metal Forming and Materials Modelling group wishes to provide a FULLY funded studentship to EXCEPTIONAL candidates to conduct PhD research work in the Mechanical Engineering department, at Imperial College London. The research work will be focused on the development of novel metal forming technologies, e.g.
Workshop on Predictive Multiscale Materials Modelling was held at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, University of Cambridge UK. Slides and videos of all presentations can be seen at the workshop website.
Hosted by the MIT Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering in collaboration with the MIT Industrial Liaisons Program (ILP), Infrastructure Innovation in a Changing Environment will explore new economic opportunities and market-driven responses to the challenges facing large-scale infrastructure projects.
Attached is an ad for a faculty search at Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, MIT. We have multiple openings this year and are looking for exceptional candidates, in particular in mechanics, materials, and related areas.
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering invites applications for several tenure-track faculty positions to begin July 2015 or thereafter. Appointments will be at the assistant or untenured associate professor level. In special cases, a senior faculty appointment may be possible. We will consider exceptional candidates in a range of areas, broadly defined. Further information about the department can be found at this page.
In this case study, based on work carried out at Imperial College and University College London, research was carried out into the performance of solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs). The microstructure of an SOFC electrode was obtained using FIB tomography, and a volume mesh generated in Simpleware software, with the model then exported to Abaqus CAE. Boundary conditions were set in the solver and stress analysis conducted, which were able to approxiamte peak maximum principal stresses in response to thermal expansion.
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) invites applications for several tenure-track faculty positions to begin September 2014 or thereafter. Appointments will be at the assistant or untenured associate professor level.
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.
