MatISSE/JPNM workshop on cross-cutting issues in structural materials R&D for future energy systems Petten, Netherlands, Nov. 25-26

 A Workshop will be Organized at Instute of Energy and Transport in Petten, the Netherlands, the 25 and 26th of November. The topic of the Workshop is "cross-cutting issues in structural materials R&D for future energy systems ". It will be organised around four cross-cutting issues:

PhD vacancy (4 years) on simulation and testing of short fibre-reinforced composites for application in heat exchangers @ Ghent University (Belgium)

Almost all heat exchangers are currently made of metal. A few attempts have been made to make heat exchangers from (fibre-reinforced) polymers. Switching from metal to polymer/composite can have several advantages:

Two Post Doctoral Positions in Advanced Synthesis and Characterization at Rice University

Position Description: Two postdoctoral associate positions in the area of advanced synthesis and nano/micro-scale characterization of nanoparticles are available at Rice University. Various techniques will be applied to synthesize and self-assemble size- and shape-controlled silicate nanoparticles followed by nano- and micro-characterizations including a myriad of probes such as electron microscopies (TEM, XRD, SEM, AFM), ICP, XPS, NMR, porosimetry, dynamic mechanical analysis, nanoindentation, etc.

Master’s (Research)/Ph.D position available in Aerospace Engineering at Texas A&M

A Ph.D. position is available at Texas A&M University in the Aerospace department to work on interactions between fatigue and creep (permanent deformation due to a constant mechanical stress applied) at high temperature in a superalloy. More information are in the attached file.

Mechanical Threshold Stress model for 6061-T6 aluminum alloy

I have attached a copy of my McMat07 talk below.  The talk is about a modified mechanical threshold stress (Follansbee-Kocks) model that can be used for strain rates > 1000 /s and high homologous temperatures.  In the model, the pressure dependence of the flow stress arises from the pressure dependence of the shear modulus.  Even after using the most accurate models for the shear modulus (and the melting temperature) we find that the pressure sensitivity of the flow stress is underestimated by our model (by quite a bit).
