Two PhD Positions in Multiscale Modeling of Materials Under Extreme Conditions

Two PhD positions are open for Spring 2019 in Advanced Hierarchical Materials by Design Labat Louisiana Tech Universityon multiscale modeling of materials under extreme conditions. The candidates must have earned a degree in Mechanical Engineering or related fields (applicants with a MSc will be given priority) and have a solid background in theoretical and computational mechanics. Having knowledge of continuum mechanics, finite element modeling, and a programming language (preferably C++) is a plus.

Multiscale Modeling of Silk and Silk‐Based Biomaterials—A Review

https://doi.org/10.1002/mabi.201800253 In celebration of Stern Family Professor of Engineering David L. Kaplan, on the occasion of his 65th birthday, we review a selection of relevant contributions of computational modeling to understand the properties of natural silk, and to the design of silk-based materials, especially combined with experimental methods.

Effects of CNT size on the desalination performance of an outer-wall CNT slit membrane

https://doi.org/10.1039/C8CP01191E We investigate the effect of varying carbon nanotube (CNT) size on the desalination performance through slit confinements formed by horizontally aligned CNTs stacked on top of one another. By increasing the CNT size, the results obtained from this study indicate a corresponding increase in the water flow rate, accompanied by a slight reduction in salt rejection performance.

Effects of oscillating pressure on desalination performance of transverse flow CNT membrane

https://doi.org/10.1016/j.desal.2018.03.029 In parallel with recent developments in carbon nanomaterials, there is growing interest in using these nanomaterials for desalination. To date, many studies have affirmed the potential of using such nanomaterials for constant pressure desalination operation. In this work, the performance of such membrane when subjected to oscillatory pressure at sub-nanosecond is investigated in detail.

Multiscale modeling of keratin, collagen, elastin and related human diseases: Perspectives from atomistic to coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations

https://doi.org/10.1016/j.eml.2018.01.009 Scleroproteins are an important category of proteins within the human body that adopt filamentous, elongated conformations in contrast with typical globular proteins. These include keratin, collagen, and elastin, which often serve a common mechanical function in structural support of cells and tissues. Genetic mutations alter these proteins, disrupting their functions and causing diseases.

Understanding Homogeneous Nucleation in Solidification of Aluminum by Molecular Dynamics Simulations (OPEN ACCESS)

Homogeneous nucleation from aluminum (Al) melt was investigated by million-atom molecular dynamics (MD) simulations utilizing the second nearest neighbor modified embedded atom method (MEAM) potentials. The natural spontaneous homogenous nucleation from the Al melt was produced without any influence of pressure, free surface effects and impurities. Initially isothermal crystal nucleation from undercooled melt was studied at different constant temperatures, and later superheated Al melt was quenched with different cooling rates.

High-Strength, Durable All-Silk Fibroin Hydrogels with Versatile Processability toward Multifunctional Applications

http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/adfm.201704757/full Hydrogels are the focus of extensive research due to their potential use in fields including biomedical, pharmaceutical, biosensors, and cosmetics. However, the general weak mechanical properties of hydrogels limit their utility. Here, pristine silk fibroin (SF) hydrogels with excellent mechanical properties are generated via a binary-solvent-induced conformation transition (BSICT) strategy.

Unusually low and density-insensitive thermal conductivity of three-dimensional gyroid graphene

http://dx.doi.org/10.1039/C7NR04455K Graphene has excellent mechanical, thermal and electrical properties. However, there are limitations in utilizing monolayers of graphene for mechanical engineering applications due to its atomic thickness and lack of bending rigidity. Synthesizing graphene aerogels or foams is one approach to utilize graphene in three-dimensional bulk forms. Recently, graphene with a gyroidal geometry has been proposed.
