PhD Position Available in Multifunctional Composite Materials

One PhD position is available immediately in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Stony Brook University, NY, US.  The research program focuses on the mechanics and multifunctional applications of 3D periodic composite materials including shape memory, acoustic/elastic wave propagation, and energy harvesting. The candidates with background in solid mechanics and finite element analysis are highly encouraged to apply.

Hierarchical Materials Symposium at USNCTAM 2014 (Abstract Deadline: December 1, 2013)

Dear Colleagues,

 

We would
like to bring your attention to the symposium "Elasticity,
Plasticity, and Multiphysics of Hierarchical Materials: Mechanisms to
Mechanics" at the 17th U.S. National Congress on Theoretical &
Applied Mechanics, to be held June 15-20, 2014 at Michigan State
University.  A detailed description of the symposium can be
found below, and abstracts (due Dec 1, 2013) can be submitted at:

Bi-functional optimization of actively cooled, pressurized hollow sandwich cylinders with prismatic cores

All metallic, hollow sandwich cylinders having ultralight two-dimensional prismatic cores are optimally designed for maximum thermo-mechanical performance at minimum mass. The heated cylinder is subjected to uniform internal pressure and actively cooled by forced air convection. The use of two different core topologies is exploited: square- and triangular-celled cores. The minimum mass design model is so defined that three failure modes are prevented: facesheet yielding, core member yielding, and core member buckling.
