Discussion of fracture paper #34 - The Physics of Hydrogen Embrittlement

Hydrogen embrittlement causes problems that probably will become apparent to an increasing extent as hydrogen is taken into general use for energy storage and as a fuel for heating and electricity production. According to Wikipedia, the phenomenon has been known since at least 1875. The subject of this blog

Improved formulas of extensional and bending stiffnesses of rectangular nanorods

Improved formulas of extensional and bending stiffnesses of isotropic rectangular nanorods are derived. These formulas reduce to the existing widely used formulas for a special choice of material parameters, i.e., when the surface Poisson's ratio and the bulk Poisson's ratio match thus highlighting the limitation of the existing formulas.

Postdoctoral opportunity at Johns Hopkins University

Profs. Michael Shields and Lori Graham-Brady at Johns Hopkins University are seeking a postdoctoral scholar for a joint collaborative program on uncertainty quantification of mechanical property predictions based on data-driven and/or machine learning models. In the short term, the focus of this project will be on developing UQ tools for Deep Neural Network models that connect image data to material properties. In the longer term this is expected to expand to a spectrum of ML and other data-driven models.

Universality in Anisotropic Linear Anelasticity

In linear elasticity, universal displacements for a given symmetry class are those displacements that can be maintained by only applying boundary tractions (no body forces) and for arbitrary elastic constants in the symmetry class. In a previous work, we showed that  the larger the symmetry group, the larger the space of universal displacements. Here, we generalize these ideas to the case of anelasticity. In linear anelasticity, the total strain is additively decomposed into elastic strain and anelastic strain, often referred to as an eigenstrain.

PhD position Computational Modeling of blood flow and position to asses measurements of non-invasive devices- CEA - Mines Saint Étienne (France)

The LS2P laboratory (from its French name, Laboratoire des Systèmes Portés par la Personne ) develops non-invasive devices for measuring physiological parameters such as heart rate, oxygen saturation or blood pressure. A strong integration is a key factor from the design stage of the sensors. This allows them to be integrated into bracelets, patches or headbands to make them compatible with their daily use.

A compatible mixed finite element method for large deformation analysis of solids in spatial configuration

In this work, a new mixed finite element formulation is presented for the analysis of two-dimensional compressible solids in finite strain regime. A three-field Hu-Washizu functional, with displacement, displacement gradient and stress tensor considered as independent fields, is utilized to develop the formulation in spatial configuration. Certain constraints are imposed on displacement gradient and stress tensor so that they satisfy the required continuity conditions across the boundary of elements.

PhD position on thermo-metallurgical-mechanical modelling of additive manufacturing at track scale

The objective of GISTEAMMM is to characterize the grain structure generated by laser powder bed fusion (L-PBF) process at track scale: one track or single wall with several tracks, in which the grain structures will be obtained by both experiment and thermo-metallurgical-mechanical modelling. The anisotropic elastic-viscoplastic material laws at grain levels are expected to be extracted by considering the influence of inherent residual stress generated during printing process.

PhD Position on Sheet metal forming modeling

The Center for Material Forming (Cemef) at Mines Paris (PSL University) is looking for a candidate for a PhD position on the computational modeling of sheet metal forming.

The project focuses on remeshing strategies for localized strain phenomena in automobile applications.

The industrial partner is for the moment undisclosed.
