Post-doc position in Mechanics of Materials at University of Houston

A one-year post-doc position is available in our research group at the University of Houston with a start date of 1 September 2021. 

We are interested in understanding how microstructural aspects govern material failure. Our approach relies on formulating theoretical frameworks that are informed by experiments and implementing them computationally.

Join us to expand in more novel directions:

(i) Data-driven plasticity and failure;

(ii) Phase-field approaches to plasticity and failure;

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.
