At least 25 Innovation Courses will be organized all over the world by Materialise.
The Innovation Course is an accessible, 2-day, hands-on training in the Mimics Innovation Suite in which you start with medical image data, create accurate 3D models and learn to; e.g. do 3D measurements and analyses, prepare for FEA and design patient-specific implants.
Join us at a location of your choice to see how powerful, yet how easy it can be to preform engineering operations on anatomical data.
Hi every one!
I want to read about boundary element method (Method of fictitious movings) .
Can you advise me something?
P.S. It's great if it will be in english, and I can download it or you can sent it to me.
A post-doctoral position is immediately available in our research group in the area of micromechanics of materials focusing on failure. Candidates with experience in computational modeling (MD/ meso-mechanics/ continuum mechanics) of crystalline/ non-crystalline (including polymeric) materials are encouraged to apply. Initial appointment will be for one year and may be extended by another year depending on the funding situation and performance.
If you are interested, please send me (shailendra[at]nus[dot]edu[dot]sg) your CV and the names of at least two references.
Frank A. McClintock, Professor Emeritus in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at MIT, passed away on Feb. 20, in the Briarwood Health Care facility in Needham, Mass. at the age of 90.
After getting his Ph.D. from Caltech in 1950, Frank (MIT ’43, SM ’43) was named assistant professor at MIT and served at the Department of Mechanical Engineering until he retired in 1990 and became professor emeritus.
While R&D topics continue
to lead as a beacon for economic recovery, a crucial part of the R&D process
continues to receive little to no attention. And make no mistake, you are about
to learn of the single most important factor in the advancement of new or
improved material technologies around the world.
I am doing my m.tech project on fracture mechanics..
I have to model orthotropic plate containing holes frm which 2cracks are emanating radially frm each hole.
my problem is i have to apply out of plane loading like bending moment and torsion.
So can any pls suggest for following problems
1.which element is suitable for above problem..?
2.how to model multiple cracks in ANSYS..?
3.How to apply moments over a plate..?
If u give suggestions it will be great helpful to me..
thanks in advance...

when I model excavation with low permeablity soil problem is not converging,due to the negligible vaule of excess pore pressure throught the soil.How can I resove this problem for the real excavation time .(If I run the analysis within very short period of time , results can be obtained under undrained ccondition)
how can I model dewatering during excavation using ABAQUS

The University of Exeter will shortly announce several new chairs it is seeking to fill.
The chairs are full tenured chairs and in the following areas -
Cell Mechanics (two chairs, one nominally experimental and one nominally theoretical).
Structural Dynamics, possibly with an aerospace flavour.
If you are interested, or know someone who might be, please contact me (c.w.smith-at-exeter.ac.uk) for an informal discussion.
