Postdoc position at Imperial College London on multi-physics modelling

The Mechanics of Infrastructure Materials research group are looking to hire a Postdoctoral Research Associate (PDRA) to work in the EPSRC project NEXTGEM. The project, led by Dr Emilio Martínez-Pañeda, aims at combining phase field methods and electro-chemo-mechanics modelling to resolve the scientific challenges holding back the applicability of hydrogen embrittlement models.

Viscoelasticity and Dynamic Mechanical Analysis

Viscoelasticity is the property of a material that exhibits some combination of both elastic or spring-like and viscous or flow-like behavior.

Postdoc - FE of wind towers - JHU

I am looking to hire a postdoc for a 2 year appointment to work with me on FE simulation of wind turbine tower structures with opportunities for collaboration in uncertainty quantification, other energy structures, other thin-walled structures, and more. I have two active projects on wind turbine towers that include collaborations with one large OEM and one startup manufacturer that will be the primary emphasis of the postdoc.

PNAS: Compliant 3D frameworks instrumented with strain sensors for characterization of millimeter-scale engineered muscle tissues

In this work published in PNAS (https://www.pnas.org/content/118/19/e2100077118), we present compliant 3D frameworks that incorporate microscale strain sensors for high-sensitivity measurements of contractile forces of engineered optogenetic muscle tissue rings, supported by quantitative simulations.

Tensile Testing Concepts & Definitions

Tensile tests are used to determine how materials behave under tension load. In a simple tensile test, a sample is typically pulled to its breaking point to determine the ultimate tensile strength of the material. The amount of force (F) applied to the sample and the elongation (∆L) of the sample are measured throughout the test.

Mechanics to explain tsunamis---Rosakis and co-workers in PNAS

Ares Rosakis and collaborators across three other institute have just published a fascinating account of a rather unexpected mechanism for generating  tsunamis. The paper, published in PNAS, is attached with this post.

The associated press-release provides a compelling lay-person summary: https://www.caltech.edu/about/news/contrary-to-previous-belief-strike-sl...

On Nye's Lattice Curvature Tensor

We revisit Nye's lattice curvature tensor in the light of Cartan's moving frames. Nye's definition of lattice curvature is based on the assumption that the dislocated body is stress-free, and therefore, it makes sense only for zero-stress (impotent) dislocation distributions. Motivated by the works of Bilby and others, Nye's construction is extended to arbitrary dislocation distributions. We provide a material definition of the lattice curvature in the form of a triplet of vectors, that are obtained from the material covariant derivative of the lattice frame along its integral curves.

Elastodynamic Transformation Cloaking for Non-Centrosymmetric Gradient Solids

In this paper we investigate the possibility of elastodynamic transformation cloaking in bodies made of non-centrosymmetric gradient solids. The goal of transformation cloaking is to hide a hole from elastic disturbances in the sense that the mechanical response of a homogeneous and isotropic body with a hole covered by a cloak would be identical to that of the corresponding homogeneous and isotropic body outside the cloak.
