Dear All,

I am excited to share that we recently developed iVABS as an integrated VABS-based framework for design and optimization, parametric studies, uncertainty quantifications of composite rotor blades, and other beam-like structures. This tool is particularly useful for rapid design of composite slender structures with accuracy of detailed 3D FEA at the speed of simple engineering beam theories.

Elastoplastic model for chemo-mechanical behavior of porous electrodes using image-based microstructure

The microstructure of electrodes is intrinsically complex and thus should be determined prior to the analysis of the chemo-mechanical performance during charge/discharge cycles. In this study, a microstructurally resolved, fully coupled chemo-mechanical model was developed to investigate the structure–property relationship of electrodes in the framework of elastoplastic finite deformation.

PhD position in multi-scale modeling of sea ice deformation

We are looking for a doctoral student to work multi-scale modeling of sea ice deformation on numerical modeling of ridging of sea ice by using discrete element method. Large-scale continuum models are typically used to study ice behavior with a resolution of some tens of kilometers. These models do not accurately describe small-scale processes related to deformation and failure of ice. In such models, the ice properties, such as compressive strength are tuned so that the models to present observed ice behavior. Predictive power of the models suffers from this.
