Exceptional-point-based accelerometers with enhanced signal-to-noise ratio

Exceptional points (EP) are non-Hermitian degeneracies where eigenvalues and their corresponding eigenvectors coalesce. Recently, EPs have attracted attention as a means to enhance the responsivity of sensors, through the abrupt resonant detuning occurring in their proximity. In many cases, however, the EP implementation is accompanied by noise enhancement, leading to the degradation of the sensor’s performance.

A coupled phase field formulation for modelling fatigue cracking in lithium-ion battery electrode particles

Dear iMechanicians - I hope this is of interest. We develop a model for predicting fatigue cracking in lithium-ion battery electrode particles. Existing models were limited to simulating one half charge cycle.

Job: Assistant/Associate/Full Professor Aerospace Engineering, Iowa State University

The Department of Aerospace Engineering, in the College of Engineering at Iowa State University, invites applications for a tenure-track/tenured faculty position in the area of Aerospace Structural Mechanics and Materials, involving either a modeling, computational or experimental focus. Exceptional candidates with commensurate experience and proven track record will be considered for the Associate or Full Professor ranks.

Research fellowship (pre/post-doc) in Machine Learning and Physical Simulation at Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna

I am looking for a research fellow (pre/post-doc) to join my group at Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna (Pisa, Italy) to work on the ERC project ALPS - AI-based Learning for Physical Simulation.

The goal of the research is to develop a new generation machine learning and simulation algorithms that are able to automatically build interpretable models of physical systems starting from experimental data. These algorithms will be applied in the contexts of biological systems, human health, fluid dynamics and engineering.

Surrogate Modeling Accelerated Shape Optimization of Deployable Composite Tape-Spring Hinges

Composite tape-spring hinge (CTSH) is a simple yet elegant mechanical component for various deployable space structures. This paper formulates and addresses cut-out shape optimization of a CTSH, which is seldom touched upon in literature. Both the maximum strain energy stored during the folding process as well as the maximum bending moment during deployment were maximized in a concurrent way, and the multi-objective optimization problem was realized by merging data-driven surrogate modeling and shape optimization.
