Postdoc vacancy (3 years) on (Nonlinear) Resonant Ultrasound Spectroscopy technique for quality control of printed metal

Additive manufacturing of metal alloys yields great potential for the aerospace industry (and others) as it allows the generation of geometrically complex structures with high specific strength, low density and high corrosion resistance.

PhD vacancy (4 years) on computational mechanics of thick adhesive joints in large wind turbine blades

Over the last years, UGent-MMS has developed the stand-alone BladeMesher software for generating finite element models of large wind turbine blades. The software reads in the material data and airfoil data of the wind turbine blade, and automatically constructs the geometry and finite element mesh for the blade. In a next step, the nodal and element information of the finite element mesh is written out to an input file for a commercial finite element solver (Abaqus in this case).

PhD Scholarship at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia - Mechanical/Biomechanical Engineering

A PhD student position in the field of mechanics is available in the Department of Mechanical and Product Design Engineering at the Swinburne University of Technology (Melbourne, Australia). The project will focus on developing a new energy-absorbing metamaterial, incorporating the synergistic effect of shear-thickening fluid (STF) and cellular structures, for improved mechanical performance under different loading conditions.

Prior experience with finite element methods and impact testings is highly preferred.

Postdoctoral position at the University of Arizona

A postdoc position in the field of computational mechanics is available in the Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Arizona. The project will focus on developing a systematic integration between experiment, crystal plasticity, finite element method (FEM), or peridynamic implementation of crystal plasticity to find an optimized microstructure for a given lattice structure topology to improve mechanical property under different loading conditions.

Article: New estimations of the added mass and damping of two cylinders vibrating in a viscous fluid, from theoretical and numerical approaches

This work deals with the small oscillations of two circular cylinders immersed in a viscous stagnant fluid. A new theoretical approach based on an Helmholtz expansion and a bipolar coordinate system is presented to estimate the fluid forces acting on the two bodies. We show that these forces are linear combinations of the cylinder accelerations and velocities, through viscous fluid added coefficients. To assess the validity of this theory, we consider the case of two equal size cylinders, one of them being stationary while the other one is forced sinusoidally.

First announcement: 2022 International Symposium on Structural Integrity (ISSI2022)

2022 International Symposium on Structural Integrity
Changsha, China, October 14-16, 2022

The 2022 International Symposium on Structural Integrity (ISSI2022) will be held at Changsha, China, by Changsha University of Science and Technology, during October 14-16, 2022. The predecessor of the annual symposium, Fracture Mechanics series, took place each year from 2003 to 2009, was renamed as Structural Integrity series after 2010, and organized by China Structural Integrity Consortium (CSIC).

The theme of ISSI2022 is “Structural Integrity of Critical Infrastructure”. The aim of this symposium is hence to bring together people from both academic and industrial communities to exchange ideas and network friendship by discussing emerging structural integrity issues related to critical infrastructure, where papers toward are mostly welcome.

You are cordially invited to attend the symposium, to meet and network colleagues and friends and enjoy your stay in Changsha, China.

A slender body theory for the motion of special Cosserat filaments in Stokes flow

The motion of filament-like structures in fluid media has been a topic of interest since long. In this regard, a well known slender body theory exists wherein the fluid flow is assumed to be Stokesian while the filament is modeled as a Kirchhoff rod which can bend and twist but remains inextensible and unshearable. In this work, we relax the inextensibility and unshearability constraints on filaments, i.e., the filament is modeled as a special Cosserat rod.
