Exciting new vacancy - MatchID US subsidiary

Given our substantial growth over the past few years, MatchID deems the time right to expand our horizon and evolve from a spin-off towards a truly international scaled-up company. To that purpose we will establish a US subsidiary that will not only give us a local physical presence, but also help convey more directly our philosophy to potential customers for a widespread range of applications and market verticals.


A funded PhD position in Civil Engineering is available at Politecnico di Milano on the topic “AGRIVOLTAICS: INTEGRATED STRUCTURAL OPTIMIZATION AND DATA ANALYTICS FOR DECARBONIZATION AND SMART AGRICULTURE”; a brief account of motivation and objectives, and of methods and techniques to develop are reported below.

MIT Short Course: Machine Learning for Materials Informatics (Live Virtual, Sept. 26-29, 2022)

In this course you will fully learn how to incorporate new materials informatics methods into your own material modeling, analysis and design processes in order to capitalize on recent AI breakthroughs, such as language models (e.g. GPT-3, BERT, LaMDA, etc.), DNA and protein models (e.g., AlphaFold), graph neural networks applied from molecular to macroscale structures, and a host of methods adapted for computer vision including diffusion models (as used in DALL-E 2 or Imagen), specifically for the analysis, design and modeling of materials. The course involves a mix of lectures, hands-on labs and clinics for an immersive experience. Participants will learn fundamentals and techniques to deploy machine learning in materials development and gain first-hand understanding of state-of-the art tools for varied applications ranging from data mining to inverse design. We will cover scales from the molecular to the continuum.

Article: Hydrodynamic Interaction Between Two Flexible Finite Length Coaxial Cylinders: New Theoretical Formulation and Numerical Validation

This article addresses the interaction of two coaxial cylinders separated by a thin fluid layer. The cylinders are flexible, have a finite length, and are subject to a vibration mode of an Euler–Bernoulli beam. Assuming a narrow channel, an inviscid and linear theoretical approach is carried out, leading to a new simple and tractable analytical expression of the fluid forces.

Deadline Oct 15th, 2022: Call for Nominations for the Eshelby Mechanics Award for Young Faculty

It is my pleasure to solicit nominations for the "Eshelby Mechanics Award for Young Faculty". This award, launched in 2012, is given annually to rapidly emerging junior faculty who exemplify the creative use and development of mechanics. The intent of the award is to promote the field of mechanics, especially among young researchers. While interdisciplinary work that bridges mechanics with physics, chemistry, biology and other disciplines is encouraged, the ideal awardee will demonstrate clear inspiration from mechanics in his/her research.

A 3D hard-magnetic rod model based on co-rotational formulations

Hard-magnetic soft materials have attracted broad interests because of their flexible programmability, non-contact activation and rapid response in various applications such as soft robotics, biomedical devices and flexible electronics. Such multifunctional materials consist of a soft matrix embedded with hard-magnetic particles, and can exhibit large deformations under external magnetic stimuli. Here, we develop a three-dimensional (3D) rod model to predict spatial deformations (extension, bending and twist) of slender hard-magnetic elastica.

Optical and Mechanical Properties of Self-Repairing Pectin Biopolymers

Pectin’s unique physicochemical properties have been linked to a variety of reparative and regenerative processes in nature. To investigate the effect of water on pectin repair, we used a 5 mm stainless-steel uniaxial load to fracture glass phase pectin films. The fractured gel phase films were placed on a 1.5–1.8 mm thick layer of water and incubated for 8 h at room temperature and ambient humidity. There was no immersion or agitation. The repaired pectin film was subsequently assessed for its optical and mechanical properties.
