Project Associate / PhD Positions: Multiscale Simulation of Nano-Composites for Fatigue & Fracture

Applications are invited for few open positions in the area of
multiscale simulation of fatigue and fracture of advanced alloys and
nano-material based composites. Primary focus of this research is investigation
of fatigue and fracture behavior of nanomaterials and to develope various
constitutive models for continuum, based on large scale atomistic simulations.
Research effort will include development of analysis and design methods toward
improving material/structural behaviour using computer simulation. Interested
candidates should have preferably MTech/ME degree in
mechanical/civil/aerospace/material engineering discipline with good knowledge

Visualizing LAMMPS molecular dynamics trajectories using visual molecular dynamics (VMD)

It is very important to visualize molecular dynamics (MD) trajectories since there are many aspects of MD simulations which are difficult to identify without a proper visualization tool. Improper bounday condition in MD is one of such examples. I use Visual Molecular Dynamics (VMD) to visualize my MD simulations. Some of my movies, created using VMD, are shown below.

Papers on MD simulation and multiscale modeling of polymer based nanocomposites

Dear Colleagues,

 I am glad to share my papers on MD simulation and multiscale moldeling of polymer based nanocomposites.

Installing and running LAMMPS molecular dynamics package: nanoscale tensile test of a graphene nanoribbon using LAMMPS

I have recently created a webpage to share my knowledge on LAMMPS. I have shared some useful information and links to valuable web pages. I think my webpage contains enough information for someone to install and run LAMMPS. To demonstrate the simulation procedure of LAMMPS, I performed an uniaxial tensile test on a graphene nanoribbon. The required LAMMPS input files for the simulation is also available online. The web page is still a part of another web page, I'll create a separate one soon.

Postdoctoral Position Available at Northwestern University

A postdoctoral associate position is available immediately at the Computational Nanodynamics Group at Northwestern University. This research project focuses broadly on the atomistic and meso-scale modeling of biomolecular materials and their interfaces with engineered polymers. Nanostructural predictions, self-assembly studies, and simulations of mechanofunctional behavior constitute the scope of the project.

simulations, and writing papers and proposals.  The ideal candidate will
have a PhD in physics, chemical engineering, or mechanical engineering with
experience in molecular dynamics simulations.  Strong writing skills are
mandatory.  The appointment is for one year, starting as soon as
possible.  The research will be performed at Northwestern University,

10 PhD Scholarships / Postdoctoral Positions in Computational Materials Science

The Cluster of Excellence ‘Engineering of Advanced Materials’ of the Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg is inviting applications for doctoral students and postdocs in the area of Computational Materials Science to join the institute for general materials properties, the computer chemistry center and/or the chair of theoretical chemistry.

Physical Foundations of Continuum Mechanics

After many publications and lecture notes, Prof. Ian Murdoch has finally organized much of that material in the form of a book.

I am very hopeful that like Prof. Murdoch's lectures, this monograph will also help the readers to develop a better understanding of the physical aspects of mechanics. It will be a valuable addition to the researchers' personal collection.
