A Simple Local Variational Iteration Method and Related Algorithm for Nonlinear Science and Engineering

A very simple and efficient local variational iteration method for solving problems of nonlinear science is proposed in this paper. The analytical iteration formula of this method is derived first using a general form of first order nonlinear differential equations, followed by straightforward discretization using Chebyshev polynomials and collocation method. The resulting numerical algorithm is very concise and easy to use, only involving highly sparse matrix operations of addition and multiplication, and no inversion of the Jacobian in nonlinear problems.

Postdoctoral Researcher at MIT - Geomechanics and Multiphase Flow in Porous Media

We have an opening for a postdoctoral researcher to perform original research on geomechanics and multiphase flow for subsurface engineering applications, with a particular emphasis on the poromechanics of geologic faults. The successful candidate will develop numerical methods to model coupled processes on high-performance computing platforms.

The Machine Learning as an Expert System

1.

To cut a somewhat long story short, I think that I can ``see'' that Machine Learning (including Deep Learning) can actually be regarded as a rules-based expert system, albeit of a special kind.

I am sure that people must have written articles expressing this view. However, simple googling didn’t get me to any useful material.

I would deeply appreciate it if someone could please point out references in this direction. Thanks in advance.

SES 2019 - Mechanics of Electrochemically Active Materials

Colleagues:

The technical meeting of the Society of Engineering Science (SES) will be held at Washington University in St. Louis on October 13-15, 2019. As part of this meeting we are organizing Symposium 7.4 on “Mechanics of Electrochemically Active Materials”. The deadline for abstract submission is April 30

When to use equation of state models in modeling high velocity impacts?

Equation of state models (Mie-Gruneisen equation of state etc) have been widely used to study hydrodynamic response of material during explosive deformation, ballistic impacts for a long time. As far as I understand, a hydrodynamic response is required to be incorporated in a model if the pressure of impact leads to an increase volumetric strength. That is the stress wave speed in the material exceeds the speed of sound in the material (v = sqrt(elastic modulus/density)).  Ballistic impacts occur at strain rates close to 10^9 to 10^12/s.

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: https://sem.org/annualprogram. 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.
