Research associate position at University of Sheffield

The successful candidate will work on the EPSRC funded research project 'Ultimate and permissible limit state behaviour of soil-filled masonry arch bridges', which is being undertaken in collaboration with the University of Salford and various industrial partners (Network Rail, ADEPT, the International Union of Railways and Balfour Beatty Rail). This is an exciting opportunity to help develop the next generation of analysis and assessment techniques for masonry arch bridges, thus helping to ensure a sustainable future for structures that continue to form a vitally important part of the rail and regional road networks of the UK and other countries.

Post-doctoral Position in Computational Mechanics at Los Alamos National Laboratory

The Fluid Dynamics and Solid Mechanics group at Los Alamos National Laboratory is currently seeking outstanding candidates to fill a post-doctoral research position in computational solid/structural mechanics.

The prospective candidate is expected to take part in the development of non-classical, global-local plate/shell finite elements for applications involving the response and/or failure of composite structures under severe dynamic loading conditions.

Research assistant and PhD position at PoliMi on micro-plasticity models

In the last decade, different
cyclic plasticity models
, based on the “continuum” approach, have been proposed
in order to account for different mechanical effects (such as ratchetting,
strain range dependence, non-proportional loading and memory effect), [1, 2]. A
disadvantage of this approach is the elevated number of model parameters
introduced in order to correctly predict the material behaviour. The determination
of these parameters, usually difficult and expensive,
is one of the reasons why the modern
constitutive models are not widely used in finite element simulations of

Research assistant and PhD position at PoliMi on corrosion-fatigue

Raiway axle failures have been the starting point for the studies on fatigue. However, recent accidents and papers (see [1] by Hoddinott) have shown that corrosion-fatigue plays a significant role.

At PoliMi we have recently investigated this topic finding interesting results by corrosion-fatigue tests on small-scale specimens and, recently, a validation of the model by full-scale corrosion-fatigue tests (see papers [2-3]).

Full-scale axle tested under corrosion-fatigue

A typical failure of a full-scale axle specimen subjected to corrosion-fatigue (rotating-bending in presence of artificial rainwater) for an axle of A1T subjected to 10^7 cycles at 160 MPa. The main crack is accompanied by the presence of many small cracks.
