Post-doc position damage/fracture (position filled, thank you)

To improve further computational tools for fracture, we need a 

talented phd. We are developping transition models from damage

to fracture  for several type of materials (quasi-brittle and ductile).

The position will be open until filled. Please send me your CV

if you are interested. 

The theoretical framework is the Thick Level Set model for damage (TLS)

and the numerical implementation uses level sets and the extended

finite element  method (X-FEM).

The research team currently gathers 9 persons.

A paper on ILS : Inequality level set : A new approach to handle inequality constraints

Treating volumetric inequality constraint in a continuum media with a coupled X-FEM/Level-Set strategy

N. Bonfils, N. Chevaugeon, N. Moës

(accepted for publication in computer Methods in applied mechanics and engineering).

Post-Doctoral position available on X-FEM for the simulation of fracture in composites

A one year (renewable) post-doc position is avalaible at the Ecole Centrale of Nantes, France.

The research deals with the simulation of complex cracking patterns in composites using

 the eXtended Finite Element method (X-FEM).


To apply : a CV + name of at least two references.



CFRAC 2007 International Conference on Computational Fracture and Failure of Materials and Structures

If you are interested by the computational aspects of fracture and failure of materials and structures,there is a dedicated conference for you : CFRAC 2007, which will be held in Nantes, France, 11-13 June 2007. It is an thematic conference of the European Community in Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS). The for abstract is now closed. This conference wil involve a certian number


I am writing to you to bring to your attention a new Master Course on Computational Mechanics, which has been awarded the Erasmus Mundus label.

It is an international Master course given jointly in English by the Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña (Barcelona), University of Wales Swansea), Ecole Centrale Nantes and Universität Stuttgart with the collaboration of CIMNE International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering, Barcelona).
