Postdoc vacancy (2.5 years) on multi-scale modelling of fatigue in 3D printed metals

The use of 3D printed metal structures is taking a very fast ramp-up in industry. General Electric has demonstrated the possibility of printing titanium fuel injectors for their LEAP engine, EADS has printed a nacelle hinge bracket for the Airbus A320, Boeing is printing plastic inlet ducts for high-altitude aircrafts, hip implants and other prosthetics are exploiting the design freedom of additive manufacturing (AM),...

Kinetic relations and local energy balance for LEFM from a nonlocal peridynamic model

Journal: International Journal of Fracture

Abstract: A simple nonlocal field theory of peridynamic type is applied to model brittle fracture. The kinetic relation for the crack tip velocity given by Linear Elastic Fracture Mechanics (LEFM) is recovered directly from the nonlocal dynamics, this is seen both theoretically and in simulations. An explicit formula for the change of internal energy inside a neighborhood enclosing the crack tip is found for the nonlocal model and applied to LEFM.

PhD/postdoc vacancy (4 years) on development of topology optimization algorithms for functionally graded materials

Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing or WAAM techniques are attracting interest from the manufacturing industry because of their potential to produce large metal components with low cost and short production lead time. This process exists alongside other high deposition rate metal AM technologies such as powder and wire based DED. While these use either laser or an electron beam as energy source to melt a metal powder or wire, WAAM technologies melt metal wire using an electric arc.

USACM Virtual Seminar Series this Summer

The USACM has established a virtual seminar series that will run for six weeks over the course of this summer.  Exact dates and times will vary each week, but a full listing of the speakers is available here:

https://www.usacm.org/seminar-series

The series features young computational mechanicians from across the US.  The talks are an opportunity for these young scientists to showcase their research activities during a period in which so many conferences and meetings are being cancelled or postponed.

PhD/postdoc vacancy (4 years) on computational mechanics of large wind turbine blades

Over the last years, UGent-MMS has developed the stand-alone BladeMesher software for generating finite element models of large wind turbine blades. The software reads in the material data and airfoil data of the wind turbine blade, and automatically constructs the geometry and finite element mesh for the blade. In a next step, the nodal and element information of the finite element mesh is written out to an input file for a commercial finite element solver (Abaqus in this case).
