A PhD opprotunity in CEE @ UIUC

A PhD opportunity in the field of computational and applied mechanics is available in the department of Civil and Environmental engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Qualifying candidates must have a strong background in mechanics and mathematics. Familiarity with scientific computing in one of the widely used programming languages (e.g. Fortran, C++ or Python)is required.

Primary focus will be on multiscale modeling of fractures in heterogeneous quasi-brittle materials with applications in the field of earthqauke dynamics and bone mechanics 

EM 388F Term Paper: Application of Fracture Mechanics on Cortical Bone Studies

One of the most common problems in older people is the fragility of the bones. Human bones are prone to fracture, and fracture of certain bones in the body such as the cortical bone may be fatal. Understanding of the fracture mechanism of bones is essential for the medical profession, and plays a major role in the study of osteoporosis as well.
