Special Session on "Manipulation and testing of micro/nanoscale materials" MARSS 2024_July 01-05_Delft, Netherlands

MARSS, the annual International Conference on Manipulation, Automation and Robotics at Small Scales, is a non-profit conference run by the microrobotic community and technically supported by IEEE-RAS and IEEE-NTC. MARSS2024 will be held in-person on July 01-05, 2024, in Delft, Netherlands. The conference is the flagship forum to discuss cross-disciplinary activities on 1) manipulation, automation, measurement, and characterization at micro/nano scales, and 2) all kinds of small-scale robots (nm – cm) and their applications.

Ph.D. Position in Mechatronics Engineering at Kent State University, Kent, OH

A fully-funded Ph.D. position is available in the Control, Automation, and Mechatronics (CAM) lab at Kent State University, Kent, OH, starting in Spring 2025. The program is housed within the College of Aeronautics and Engineering and focuses on Mechatronics Engineering. Ideal candidates will need to have completed their master’s degree by the end of 2024 and must possess a strong foundation in controls, system identification, and machine learning, along with proficient programming skills in Python and MATLAB.

Tight bounds correlating peak absorption with Q-factor in composites and metallic clusters of particles.

Dear colleagues, 

We invite you to read our article, which informs one about the extent to which resonances can be tuned in metamaterials. More precisely, our work provides tight bounds correlating the Quality-factor with peak absorption in dielectric metamaterials. The article is published in Applied Physics Letters and can be found here: https://doi.org/10.1063/5.0155092

Discussion of fracture paper #40 - Icicle or carrot, which one has isotropic fracture properties?

Around 20 years ago, I gave a fracture mechanics lecture and talked about crack initiation that happens in the plane with the largest tensile stress. True, at least if the material has isotropic properties. The students already knew where an isotropic material would give the largest stress at bending and torsion. I planned to make a desktop experiment with an icicle and a carrot. This was during the autumn with an abundance of icicles everywhere. The carrot, I found at home.

Multiple PhD Positions in the area of nuclear fuels and advanced characterization methods

Free Access to Complex Analysis by the Renowned Mathematician Richard Courant

Many engineering disciplines, especially fluid and solid mechanics, require a solid understanding of complex analysis. We are thrilled to share that "Theory of Functions of a Complex Variable" by Richard Courant has been thoroughly revived, and upgraded, and is now freely accessible on AdaptiveBooks.org.

Friction in Rolling a Cylinder on or Under a Viscoelastic Substrate with Adhesion

In classical experiments, it has been found that a rigid cylinder can roll both on and under an inclined rubber plane with a friction force that depends on a power law of velocity, independent of the sign of the normal force. Further, contact area increases significantly with velocity with a related power law.
