Residual Stress 101: One day course at SEM conference

The day before the SEM Conference this June in Reno, Nevada, USA, we will be teaching a short course entitled Residual Stress 101: See below for a description of the course. We will cover lots of practical material on residual stresses, much of which is not covered in standard engineering curricula. This is great material for any interested researcher who never got a comprehensive background in residual stress. It will also be great for graduate students or advanced undergrads, and students pay half price.

PhD studentship available at Kingston University London

A PhD studentship is available in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Kingston University London.

The work will be dedicated to the discrete element modeling of pellets' compaction in orodispersible tablets.

The project is in close collaboration with the Kingston University's Department of Pharmacy and also the University of Strathclyde. The student will have access to the high-performance computing facilities and also to the relevant facilities to obtain experimental data for validation of the developed numerical models.

Performing Uniaxial Tensile Tests of Graphene in LAMMPS

I would like to share the codes required to perform an end-to-end molecular dynamics simulation, which will be useful to the novice researchers in the filed of atomistic simulations. I focus on simulating uniaxial tensile tests of a graphene sample in the LAMMPS molecular dynamics simulator, and I have attached two MATLAB scripts to create the input files for LAMMPS and to extract data from the LAMMPS output file.
