One PhD (4 years) and two Postdoc (3 years) vacancies are available in the composites research group at Ghent University in Belgium. The different open positions deal with nondestructive testing methods for composites inspection (vibration/thermography) and fatigue of 3D printed metals.

The upcoming 2017 APS March Meeting will take place in New Orleans, LA during March 13-17, 2017. Here, we would like to invite you to contribute to a focus session called “Physics of Bioinspired Materials” as below.
2.1.12: Physics of Bio-Inspired Materials (GSOFT, DBIO) [same as 4.1.30]
Immediate opening for a postdoctoral fellow to work on 3D printing of biomedical implants such as vascular conduits. The project involves design and development of processes to print biocompatible materials with shape change properties. These constructs will be characterized using conventional soft-material techniques and their interactions with cells and biological fluids will be investigated.
The Kang Group is looking for outstanding candidates to join the group. We have openings as below. Due to the large volume of applications received, we will contact only those selected for interviews. Thank you for your understanding.
We would like to invite you to submit an abstract to the symposium on Mechanics of 3D Printed Materials and Structures at the 53rd Annual Technical Meeting of the Society of Engineering Science (SES2016) to be held during October 2-5, 2016 at the College Park Marriott Hotel & Conference Center (College Park, MD).

General: Kansas State University locates in Manhattan, KS, which ranks as the best college town in the US. Research in the Zhang Research Group in the Department of Industrial & Manufacturing Systems Engineering is in the field of Advanced Manufacturing. Equal part fundamental theory and implementation, the current focus is on utilization of cellulosic biomaterials for renewable energy, additive manufacturing/ 3D printing of advanced materials for health, and ultrasonic vibration assisted processing.

We would like to invite you to submit an abstract to the session on 3D Printed Soft Materials at the ASME 2016 IMECE to be held from November 11 to November 17, 2016 in Phoenix, AZ.
Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, offers unique opportunities to explore novel properties and mechanics of soft materials. This session calls papers from research efforts related to soft materials with novel properties realized or created using 3D printing techniques. Specific topics of interest include, but not limited to:
Additive manufacturing (AM) has emerged as a powerful technique for manufacturing of various types of biomaterials and implants. Using AM, it is now possible to fabricate biomaterials with arbitrarily complex shapes at different scales. The inventory of biomaterials that can be used in this way continues to increase, extending the possible range of products and applications.
After several years of research in the area of additive manufacturing, biofabrication, and additively manufactured biomaterials and implants, I finally put up the first version of the website of my lab. I will gradually improve the website, but there is already links to all publications coming out of my lab in the general area of AM.
3D printing and numerical analysis are combined to design a new class of architected materials that contain bistable beam elements and exhibit controlled trapping of elastic energy. The proposed energy-absorbing structures are reusable. Moreover, the mechanism of energy absorption stems solely from the structural geometry of the printed beam elements, and is therefore both materials- and loading-rate independent.

How to Enter
Send us your image data and a quick description, and we will pick the best entry. A video will be produced that can be used to communicate your complex 3D models in presentations, or to simply show off your scans to colleagues.
"3D printing" is a popular term for the layerwise manufacturing of metals or polymers with a printing head, that builds up the component with droplets of molten polymer or metal into a 3D shape. The geometries that can be realized with this technique, can be very complex, and this with a minimum of material usage, because no material has to be milled away. Further, very lightweight materials can be achieved. Flanders region plays a leading role in Europe in this 3D printing sector, with important industrial players such as Materialise, Layerwise and Melotte.
I'm planning to print a series of cylindrical shells with different material patches on shell surface. The size is about 100 mm in length, 80 mm in diameter and 0.5 mm in shell thickness. The shell was designed with varied stiffness by using two different material properties. The 3D assembly has been created with two groups such that it is easy to select one group for a specific material. I wonder did any of you try some commercial 3D printing companies or providers who can fabricate similar structure with varied stiffness and afforable cost. Let me know. Thanks!
We are pleased to announce the symposium "Design, Fabrication and Characterization of Architected Materials" at the upcoming 2015 Mach Conference (http://machconference.org). A full description of the symposium is provided below. Abstracts are due December 5, though please let us know if you are interested in participating but need additional time to prepare the abstract.
