PhD position at University of Lorraine, France

Project title: Micromechanical modeling of geomaterials by considering the microstructural anisotropy 

Location: Nancy (France), Georessources Laboratory, University of Lorraine

Starting date and duration: September/October, 2018, 3 years

Candidates: First-class undergraduate and master degrees in mechanics, applied mathematics, civil engineering or other related disciplines. The candidates should be motivated by research in theoretical and numerical modeling and have a good background in mathematics, mechanics of materials, finite element method, etc. 

Sutured tendon repair; a multi-scale finite element model.

We've recently published an open access journal paper that looks at the mechanics of sutures used to repair severed tendons. A homogenization strategy is used to derive effective elastic properties for tendon fibrils and intracellular matrix. We have found that regions of high stress correlate with the regions of cell death (necrosis) that are sometimes observed in patients.

If this is of interest, please feel free to view the paper here.
