Paper "The influence of environmental parameters on the dynamic behaviour of the San Frediano bell tower in Lucca"

This paper aims at assessing the influence of environmental parameters on the modal characteristics of age-old masonry constructions. The results of a long-term ambient vibration monitoring of the San Frediano bell tower in Lucca (Italy) are reported. The tower, dating back to the 11th century, has been fitted along its height with four triaxial seismometric stations, which were left active for about one year.

PhD on polymer nanofilms at Ecole Polytechnique, France

One Ph.D. position is now available starting October 2019 (and open until filled) on the experimental and theoretical study of thin polymeric nanofilms. The PhD will be pursued in the Solid Mechanics Laboratory of Ecole Polytechnique, Paris, France in collaboration with BD Medical Pharmaceutical Systems (Grenoble, France). The potential student will work on the development of new experimental procedures and theoretical models to understand the formation and mechanical response of thin polymer films over soft polymer substrates.

PhD positions in Controls are available at George Mason University

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.
