PhD position in computational solid mechanics

Aalto University (Finland), Department of Mechanical Engineering, is looking for a doctoral student for a study on the breakage and fragmentation of ice blocks under compressive loads. The fragmentation process is complicated and requires the use of novel modelling methods that can be used reliably on different scales. In addition to the computational work, we will perform experiments on this topic.

Post doc position in computational solid mechanics

We in Aalto Univeristy (Finland), Department of Mechanical Engineering, look for a post doc to join our group for a study on the breakage and fragmentation of ice blocks under compressive loads. The fragmentation process is complicated and requires the use of novel experiments and numerical models, and in this research, you will be working on both. The unique experiments on this topic will be performed in the cold room of the department.  Numerical modelling will be done on a variety of scales.

Postdoctoral Position in Fragmentation

We have one postdoctoral position, available in October 2009, in the general
area of fragmentation and dynamic failure. The specific interest is in the timescales and lengthscales associated with the interactions of failure modes in materials. A background in modeling and simulation is essential, while some experience with shock physics is desirable. The successful candidate will become part of a highly collegial and diverse research group with activities in nanomaterials, planetary science and biomechanics. The work involves collaborative research with the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, and US citizenship is required. If you are

Simulating explosions

Recently Henry talked about software that could be used to simulate explosions and introduced CartaBlanca. Luming asked whether anyone had used the software, how good it was, and whether one needed Java to implement models into CartaBlanca.

PhD Scholarship - Monash University, Australia

An Australian Research Council funded PhD Scholarship is available in the Department of Civil Engineering at Monash University in Australia in the area of computational mechanics. The objective of this project is to develop a multi-scale bifurcation-based decohesion model within the framework of the Material Point Method (MPM), one of the meshfree methods, for simulating glass fragmentation under blast loading.
