ASME IMECE 2020 Mechanics of Soft Materials symposium

A few updates about the ASME IMECE 2020 Mechanics of Soft Materials symposium:

 

•            IMECE 2020 will be fully online with the technical meetings held during the week of November 15. IMECE remains the same otherwise. The online format will leverage the extra capabilities that come from a virtual setting.

•            Authors will still be required to register to present and to be included in the final program. Registration will be at a reduced rate (exact amount to be announced).

Ph.D. and postdoc positions in mechanics, materials, and flexible electronics

Two Ph.D. positions and one postdoc position are available in Wang Research lab (https://www.wangresearchlab.com) in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Missouri, Columbia.

Ph.D. positions

PhD student or postdoc position in “Atomistic Computer Simulation of Grain Boundary Structure and Mechanics”

The Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung (Düsseldorf, Germany) offers a position in the department Structure and Nano-/Micromechanics of Materials (Prof. G. Dehm): PhD student or postdoc position in “Atomistic Computer Simulation of Grain Boundary Structure and Mechanics”

Understanding how grain boundaries influence plasticity will lead to significant advances in material design. In the context of the department’s research, the overarching aim of this PhD project is to connect grain boundary structures in fcc metals to physical properties.

Soterix Medical: Individualized Modeling & Planning for Stroke Treatment

Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) benefits from individualized 3D modelling and simulation. I recommend anyone wanting to learn more about work in these area check out this webinar on July 30th:

An improved semi-analytical solution for stress at round-tip notches

Highlights

 

A semi-analytical model is developed for the notch tip maximum stress.

Application of the formula to U and blunt V-notches is demonstrated.

The results can be used to assess the brittle failure of notched components.

Call for Nominations for ASME's Applied Mechanics Division Awards 2020

Dear Colleagues,

We wanted to alert you for the call for nominations of the awards of the Applied Mechanics Division (AMD) of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), which are due on September 15th, 2020.

July 27-29, 2020: Virtual Symposium on Experimental Solid Mechanics

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru, invites you to join us from July 27th to 29th, 2020, for a virtual Symposium on Experimental Solid Mechanics. 

The symposium is being organized in honor of Prof K R Yogendra Simha, who has worked extensively in the areas of fracture mechanics, impact mechanics and photoelasticity, and has taught and mentored generations of mechanical engineers.
