Doctoral Candidate Position in Computational Ice Mechanics

We are looking for a doctoral student to join our Arctic Marine and Ice Technology research group at the Aalto University (Finland), Department of Mechanical Engineering, to study ice-structure interaction process in shallow water using numerical simulations.  In the complex ice-structure interaction process an intact ice sheet fails into discrete ice blocks, which affect further stages of the process. Realistic calculations of ice loads due to this process require modeling of the ice blocks and their pile-up process.

Soil Structure Interaction

I am trying to model the soil churning action of a rotary tiller trough soil structure interaction. Based on some published articles, DEM and SPH approach both have been used to model the tool interaction with the soil. I am little confused in the selection of the appraoch. Can somebody throw some light on advantages and disadvantages of one approach over another and which approach should be chosen for more realistic results.

DEM modelling of granular flow

Hi iMechanica,

I want to start a discussion on the current status of DEM modelling of granular media. I know that Luding has published many papers in this area. Please add to the current research on granular flow modelling like viscoplasticity, hypoplasticity etc and the  numerical DEM methods.

Postdoc position at HKUST on computational mechanics/geomechanics

A post-doc position is available now for one who has recently obtained (or about to get) his/her PhD on computational
geomechanics or computational mechanics. The successful candidate is expected to have strong background of mechanics
and extensive experience on computer programming (e.g., coding in FEM and/or DEM), and is able to work independently.
He/she who has previously worked on multi-scale modeling of material behavior will be particularly welcome to apply. The
initial contract is one year and is extendable to multiple years subject to his/her performance and availability of funding.

the DEM's solutions for static mechanics seem strange

My own DEM(Discrete Element Method) program's solution for static problem seems strange.

I use my program to calculate the displacement of a cantilever under static pressure:

1. it seems my program shows convergence for static problem as the mesh gets denser. As the mesh grows denser(that means the particle becomes smaller), the displacement(of y direction)  of the free tip becomes smaller.
