Journal Club for October 2019: A Metamaterial Approach to Soft Robotics

Metamaterials are rapidly emerging at the frontier of science and engineering. Mechanical metamaterials, in particular, have been designed to show superior mechanical properties, such as ultrahigh stiffness and strength-to-weight ratio, or unusual properties, such as a negative Poisson’s ratio and a negative coefficient of thermal expansion.

PhD openings in solid/structural mechanics at Stony Brook University

I would like to advertise several openings for Ph.D. students in my recently-established research group, the Dynamic Structures Laboratory at Stony Brook University. The intended starting semester is Fall 2020.

Multiple faculty positions in Mechanics and Materials at TU/e Eindhoven

There are several openings for faculty positions in the field of Mechanics and Materials in our Department of Mechanical Engineering of the Eindhoven University of Technology in The Netherlands. The department is seeking for outstanding faculty members at all levels and in particular the fields of Function integration in material systems and Development, optimization and behaviour of new advanced materials. At present, talented people with an experimental profile are strongly encouraged to apply.

PhD position in computational biomechanics at University of Glasgow

I am looking for motivated students to join my research group and work towards their PhD in the area of computational biomechanics.

Description

Almost 30% of all deaths globally are related to cardiovascular diseases, and most of these are related to changes in the stiffness of tissues making up the system. There is an urgent need for new computational tools that can help detect, understand, and treat these diseases. There are four specific projects available under his broad topic:

Contact stiffness of rough surfaces

Contact stiffness of multiscale surfaces by truncation analysis

 

In this concise piece of work, an effective method is shown to gain new understandings into the role of surface structure in the field of contact mechanics. In particular, normal contact stiffness is correlated to parameters of surfaces' fractal dimension and amplitude.

Post-doc position in microstructure modeling at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) Singapore

The Additive Microstructure Engineering Laboratory (AddME Lab) in the school of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at NTU (Singapore) is a young, diverse, and interdisciplinary research group with interests in in-line microstructure control and assessment during selective laser melting (SLM) processes. In this framework, we are collaborating with the Institute of High Performance Computing under the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), to simulate the microstructure of metals produced during SLM.

Compressive performance of MAX phase composites

Compressive performance and crack propagation in MAX phase composites 

 

Here micro CT was used to reveal the structure performance relationships in metal/ceramic composites based on Ti2AlC / Al alloy combinations.

The results show the promise of infiltrated max phase materials in the production of high performance composites.
