Journal Club for February 2020: Machine Learning in Mechanics: simple resources, examples & opportunities

Machine learning (ML) in Mechanics is a fascinating and timely topic. This article follows from a kind invitation to provide some thoughts about the use of ML algorithms to solve mechanics problems by overviewing my past and current research efforts along with students and collaborators in this field. A brief introduction on ML is initially provided for the colleagues not familiar with the topic, followed by a section about the usefulness of ML in Mechanics, and finally I will reflect on the challenges and opportunities in this field.

PHD or POSTDOC in Computational High-Speed Impact Mechanics, Indusrtry-Funded

PLEASE NOTE: this position is only open to holders of Canadian, US or EU citizenship, or Canadian PR (permanent residence card) holders.

KEYWORDS: HIGH-SPEED IMPACT, COMPUTATIONAL MODELING, ADVANCED COMPOSITE MATERIALS, COMPUTATIONAL DAMAGE MECHANICS

Institution: University of Windsor, Canada ( https://youtu.be/RuAxubYgKcM )

Professor: http://www.uwindsor.ca/engineering/mame/440/cherniaev-aleksandr

Salary:

Cambridge University - Research Assistant/Associate in Mechanics of Multilattices (Theory)

A position exists, for a Research Assistant/Associate in the Department of Engineering, to conduct research into Mechanics of lattice materials. The post holder will be located in Central Cambridge Cambridgeshire, UK. There is an opportunity to invent interpenetrating lattice materials in order to design SOFT and HARD meta-materials of any given stiffness, strength and toughness. The actuation response due to seepage of a liquid through the lattice needs to be modelled by making use of experimental results from within the group.

PhD Position in geotechnical earthquake engineering at the Université Gustave Eiffel, France

A new PhD position is open at the Université Gustave Eiffel, France. The project will focus on the investigate the influence of ground liquefaction on the behavior of homogeneous embankment under seismic loading. The technical strategy of this study will be a combined approach of 70% physical centrifuge modeling and 30% numerical modeling. The experimental study will provide important proof on the physical phenomena and essential data for numerical modeling; Being the complimentary of experimental work, the calibrated numerical model will be used to carry out parametric and case studies.

Elastic straining of free-standing monolayer graphene

The extraordinary mechanical properties of graphene were measured on very small or supported samples. In our new paper published in Nature Communications, by developing a protocol for sample transfer, shaping and straining, we report the outstanding elastic properties and stretchability of free-standing single-crystalline monolayer graphene under in situ tensile tests.

Adverse effects of Alport syndrome-related Gly missense mutations on collagen type IV: Insights from molecular simulations and experiments

https://doi.org/10.1016/j.biomaterials.2020.119857 Our unified experimental and computational approach provided underlying insights needed to guide potential therapies for Alport syndrome (AS) that ameliorate the adverse effects from AS disease onset and progression. Patients with AS exhibit blood and elevated protein levels in their urine, inflamed kidneys, and many other abnormalities.
