Postdoctoral Opportunity at UT Austin

Professors Kenneth Liechti and Rui Huang in the Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at the University of Texas Austin have an opening for a Postdoctoral Fellow to engage in a funded project in the area of multilayered van der Waals materials. Although the project involves both experiments and modeling, the thrust of this position will be experimental. Accordingly, we seek a creative individual who has prior experience in conducting nanomechanical experiments with 2D materials.

Magneto-thermomechanically reprogrammable mechanical metamaterials

We developed a method enabling a single material system to transform with untethered, reversible, low-powered reprogrammable deformations and shape locking via the application of magneto-thermomechanically triggered prestress on the Shape Memory Polymers (SMPs) and structural instability with asymmetric magnetic torque.

Rheological investigation and modeling of healing properties during extrusion‐based 3D printing of poly(lactic‐acid)

Dear fellow iMechanicians,

Here is our recent paper that studies and models the rheological behavior of PLA deposited by 3D printing and allows to highlight the important process parameters than enable a full healing of the interface between printed layers.

Study on Failure Process of Concrete Beams Based on A New Model of Truss Element

The new model of truss element is based on the same stress-strain curves of tension, compression, and shear with the hexahedron element under the equivalent external force. Comparing and analyzing a simply supported elastoplastic concrete beam with initial cracks by using the new element method and the finite element method, it can be found that the load-displacement curve, the load-crack opening displacement curve, the contour of the displacement under the various loads, and the distribution of the horizontal normal stress under the maximum load are all in good agreement.

A new model for elasto-plastic analysis of concrete

For the plane stress problem and the spatial problem of the elasto-plastic analysis of concrete, a new truss element model is presented by using the deformations under the equivalent external forces are the same. Some examples is given, which is in good agreement with the calculation results of the solid element.

(Note: The model in this article is the world's top concrete model, much better than the concrete model provided by Ansys itself.)
