Experimental Mechanics of Thin Films & Multilayers

Colleagues: Please consider submitting an abstract to the symposium, "Thin Films and Multilayers: From Microstructure to Device Characteristics" to take place in Porto, Portugal, 2-7 July, 2023. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Topical areas: 

• Film thickness and microstructure effects on elasticity, plasticity, fracture and fatigue as well as electrical and dielectric properties

• Strain/light/magnetic field engineering of sensors, electronics

• Mechanics of multi-layered systems (from thermal barrier coating to microelectronics)

Post-Doc/PhD Position *Closed*

 This ad is now closed.


I am looking for a post-doct or PhD student to work on multi-scale defect effects on polycrystalline graphite. The study heavily involves transmission electron microscopy, x-ray CT and modeling. The ideal candidate will have strong background in TEM and experimental mechanics. Please, no need to apply if you dont have these qualifications.

Symposium on Microstructure - Property Relationship in 3D Printed Metals

The highly non-equilibrium and complex (thermal, mechanical, fluidics) processes in additive manufacturing lead to different microstructure and defect mechanics that is a major barrier for adaptation of this attractive manufacturing technique.

Faculty recruitment at Penn State

Dear Colleagues,

Penn State University Mechanical Engineering is accepting applications for five tenure track faculty positions. Please see the website for details

For the emerging areas - we are looking at themes such as additive manufacturing, metamaterials, 2D materials, data driven modeling, extreme environment mechanics or a fusion of these.

Will structural disorder in amorphous material change under mechanical loading?

I would appreciate your comments or pointing to something in the literature on whether mechanical loading changes the magnitude of structural disorder (may be rdf could be a measure) in amorphous materials. Does tension increase 'amorphous-ness' and is the opposite true for compression? Since the network structure is random, should tension and compression yield the same effect (if any)? 

I am assuming elastic loading/unloading only. 

 Many thanks!!

Assistant Professor Position at Penn State University

The Department of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering at The Pennsylvania State University is seeking applications for an Assistant Professor position in Mechanical Engineering. The position is open for highly-qualified individuals performing research in technical areas that support our multidisciplinary mechanical engineering curriculum. Priority will be given to applicants with strong background or potential in experimental or computational approaches for biomedical systems or components. The ability to merge mechanical engineering (e.g., solid and fluid mechanics, design, acoustics, heat transfer) concepts with biomedical (e.g., bio-mechanics, imaging, implants and prostheses, microdevices) applications is highly desirable.
