MIT Faculty Positions in Civil and Environmental Engineering

The MIT Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) invites applications for several tenure-track faculty positions to begin July 2017 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 all areas relevant to the mission and vision of the department, but the department is especially looking for candidates to expand or strengthen its current areas of:

A short course on "stability analysis and bifurcation theory" by Ryan Elliott

With a growing interest in soft materials, stability and bifurcation analysis is re-emerging to be a critical topic for mechanicians. There are some excellent books out there but most tend to focus on finite dimensional systems rather than (continuous) infinite dimensional systems which are of most interest to mechanicians. In general, much of the modern developments on this topic are scattered across journal papers and perhaps there are not too many pedagogical resources for beginners.

Common questions about developing educational apps

This afternoon, I had an extremely pleasant Google hangout with Daniel Suo, and Professors Zhigang Suo and Teng Li . Our main focus was on brainstorming ideas on how to improve the user experience on iMechanica. After an hour or so our conversation drifted towards educational topics including novel ways of incorporating technology in STEM education.

Robust Stability at the Swallowtail Singularity

Consider the set of monic fourth-order real polynomials transformed so that the constant term is one. In the three-dimensional space of the coefficients describing this set, the domain of asymptotic stability is bounded by a surface with the Whitney umbrella singularity. The maximum of the real parts of the roots of these polynomials is globally minimized at the Swallowtail singular point of the discriminant surface of the set corresponding to a negative real root of multiplicity four.

Nonlinear Physical Systems: Spectral Analysis, Stability and Bifurcations

Bringing together 18 chapters written by leading experts in dynamical systems, operator theory, partial differential equations, and solid- and fluid mechanics, this book presents state-of-the-art approaches to a wide spectrum of new and challenging stability problems.

FOR A SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE UNIVERSITY


Given the complexity of present and
future global challenges, it is the university´s social responsibility
to contribute to society by understanding the full extent of its needs
and current and future problems, and to prepare it to deal with them
effectively and efficiently (CMES, 2009)1. In this sense, due to its
ability to take the lead in matters of knowledge creation, promotion and
dissemination, the university becomes the ultimate guidance governments

European computational mechanics degrees

I'm looking for a good quality master's degree in computational mechanics. I currently live in Australia, and would prefer to study in Europe (must be an English based program as well). I have undergradaute degrees in mechanical engineering and computer science.

Two main degrees that stick out for me are the ones at the University of Stuttgart, and the Technical University of Munich.

One PhD Position Available in Mechanics of Materials

One PhD position is available immediately in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at Clarkson University, NY, US.  The research program focuses on the mechanical behaviors of advanced materials including polymer microstructures, composites, nanomaterials, and biological materials. Interdisciplinary collaborations are possible. The candidates with background and interest in engineering mechanics, solid mechanics, and materials science are highly encouraged to apply.

Those were not waves: A bit historical re. Huygens' principle

A few points that might be of general interest:

1. The dates: The date of Huygens' first written down material, which was orally presented to the French Academy of Sciences, is 1678---in contrast to the oft-quoted date of 1690. 1690 was the year of the first, French, publication of these notes (plus other material) in the form of a book.

Applicants and inquiries should be addressed to 

How are Compression Modulus and Tensile Modulus related to Lame` constants?

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

Hello everyone

I have a material with a compression modulus and tensile modulus along with Poisson's ratio. Are compression modulus and tensile modulus related to the Lame` constants? Or does this material fall under 'cubic symmetry' which needs three elastic constants? In that case, how are they related to the elastic coefficients (C12, C44 or C11)?

I need to incorporate these material properties in ABAQUS. How do I model this material in ABAQUS?

Any lead on this problem is appreciated. Thanks a lot.
