Polymer nanocomposites

Call for Abstract Submission to the CAMX (The Composite and Advanced Materials Expo), 2014

Abstract submission to a technical session entitles "Resin System Technology" at CAMX (Created by SAMPE and ACMA) which will be held on October 13-16, 2014 in Orlando, Florida.

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

RVE for a composite material

Hi everyone


I am fairly new to this.  I am doing my masters in nanocomposite hybrids.  I wanted to know how to do an RVE in ABAQUS.  I only started using abaqus this year and have done very basic models.  I also just started Fortran90 and would like to know how to use the subroutines.  

If anyone can assist me in simulating an RVE with just a basic fibre reinforced polymer that would help.  The goal is to eventually model a nano hybrid. 



Postdoctoral Fellowship at Northwestern University in Stochastic Multiscale Analysis and Design

We are seeking applicants for a Postdoctoral Fellowship in “stochastic multiscale analysis and design” in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Northwestern University, Evanston, IL, USA. Applicants are expected to have expertise in the following areas: solid mechanics, uncertainty quantification, finite element modeling, and engineering optimization. The candidate is expected to have a strong background in statistical analysis. Prior experience with material microstructure characterization via image processing, and model uncertainty quantification is preferred.

Finite element modelling fracture mechanics of polymer/clay nanocomposites

I am Cecilia. In 2007 I graduated in mechanical engineering at the University of Cagliari (Sardinia, Italy).

During the degree courses I took several classes on structural mechanics, including, Mechanics of Composite Materials,

Fracture Mechanics, Finite Element Analysis (with Ansys and Abaqus).

Now I am a PHD student at the Univesity of Cagliari and this is the aim of my research:

Finite element modelling of polymer-clays nanocomposites with
