Urgent - EU PhD student needed: Modelling of the mechanical and electrical response of composite materials

We are looking for a PhD researcher to work at numerical simulations of the electro-mechanical response of nano-reinforced polymers. The position is fully funded including tuition fees and a competitive maintenance/salary (of approximately 3k euros/month), as well as additional benefits for those with a family. The researcher will work towards a PhD in Mechanics of Composites at Imperial College London, Department of Aeronautics, under the supervision of Dr V.L. Tagarielli and Dr S.T. Pinho and in collaboration with several research groups in London and across Europe.

electro-mechanical properties of the 3M VHB electro-active polymer tape

Dear modellers

do you work with electrostrictive polymer actuators and need their properties for your simulations? If so, you will find the paper below interesting: we have tested the most popular material for EAP applications.

blast in deep water

 

Dear all,
I am proud to present to i-mechanicians some recent work by my student Andreas Schiffer. We provide a new experimental technique and detailed analytical models to explore one-dimensional underwater blast problems in deep water.
