Call for Nomination for ASME Awards

I would like to bring your attention to four ASME awards and we welcome your nominations. The deadline is fairly soon on February 1!  

Society awards given by ASME Materials Division:

Opening for a new Ph.D. student in the Computational Mechanics group, The University of Iowa.

The Computational Mechanics group at The University of Iowa, led by Professor S. Rahman, is looking for a new Ph.D. student, who is capable of and interested in performing high-quality research on uncertainty quantification for dynamical or time-varying systems. The research, supported by the Department of Energy, requires building a solid mathematical foundation, devising efficient numerical algorithms, and developing practical computational tools, all associated with the stochastic analysis of complex materials and structures.

Critical pressure of delamination of a film and a vessel

Following the approach of Griffith, Sneddon and Muskhelishvili calculated the pressure of tear propagation in elastic media. Gent and Lewandowski collected these works and using Hencky's approximation of membrane deformation, introduced a collection of relationships on the debonding of films from substrates by pressure (left panel).

A PhD position at University and Unity of mechanic (EA 7512) of Lille

Here I help Professor Pruchnicki post a phd thesis proposal. It will begin on September 2022 for three years (shared between Politechnico of Turino and University of Lille). The net salary will be approximately 1500 euros per month. He wants a very good student so he wants to be sure of the candidate's level. Professor Pruchnicki will give an international work on plate and will ask him/her for seeing his/her understanding. Please refer to the attachment for the details.

Multi-Shape-Changing Interpenetrating Networks with Shape Memory and Adaptive Plasticity Transitions,

Shape-changing materials with precisely programmable configurations, each having its own functional regime, provide a wide range of applications in engineering and biomedical fields. Polymers with dynamic reversible covalent/non-covalent bonding feature the potential of having remarkable plasticity, which endows them with the capability of undergoing significant and sophisticated shape changes. Here we report a facile method to build an interpenetrating network (IPN) structure with plastic deformation and shape memory properties.
