Two postdocs at U. Pittsburgh

Two post-doctoral positions are available in the lab of Sachin Velankar in the Dept. of Chemical Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh to conduct experimental research on the biomechanics of surface texturing in cephalopods (octopus or cuttlefish), and to devise reversibly-morphing surfaces.  These animals are famous for their camouflage abilities.  Like many other animals, cephalopods can change their color, but in addition, they can also change the texture of their skin by expressing protuberances or wrinkles.

Can an elastic structure buckle under tensile dead load?

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

We all know Euler buckling of a beam under axial thrust, but can buckling occur in an elastic structure in which all elements are subject to tensile dead loading?

We provide a positive answer to this question, see http://www.youtube.com/user/RoyalSociety#p/u/0/EKngs1vvcJU

Post-doctoral position at Univ. Pittsburgh: Reversibly-morphing surfaces

A post-doctoral position is available in the Dept. of Chemical Engineering at the
University of Pittsburgh to conduct experimental research on developing
"morphing surfaces" that change topology by developing features such
as bumps, folds, spikes, etc. The post-doctoral fellow will develop (1)
surfaces that undergo a change in topology in response to applied stimuli, (2)
methods to control the shape and location of the morphing features on the
surface, and (3) quantitative or heuristic models to guide the design of
texture-changing surfaces.

Post-doctoral position at Univ. Pittsburgh: soft tissue buckling

A post-doctoral position is available in the lab of Sachin Velankar at the University of Pittsburgh to conduct experimental research on buckling of soft tissues in cephalopods (octopus or cuttlefish).

PhD positions in Computational Mechanics

We are looking for suitable candidates for a PhD research work in Computational Mechanics and numerical simulation, to be carried out at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Aveiro, Portugal, in one of the following areas:

- development of new finite elements for metal forming applications;

- numerical simulation of metal forming (sheet and bulk forming);

- tubular hydroforming numerical simulation;

- structural stability and buckling analysis of reinforced aircraft panels;

Mechanical properties of ZnO nanowires under different loading modes

In this paper, we report the size effects on elastic modulus and fracture strength of ZnO nanowires from the tension, and that the measured (nominal) elastic moduli under tension and bending (from the buckling experiment) are different as a manifestation of the size effects.

In-surface Buckling of Silicon Nanowires on Elastomeric Substrates

Buckling of thin layers or aligned arrays of stiff materials on elastomeric substrates has many important applications, such as stretchable electronics, precision metrology and flexible optoelectronics.  These systems show one common phenomenon, the stiff thin layers buckle normal to the substrate surface (out-of-surface buckling).  By contrast, we recently reported for the first time that silicon nanowires (SiNWs) on elastomeric substrates buckle only within the substrate surface, i.e. in-surface buckling.

buckling analysis

hi all,

 I am doing buckling analysis of pressure vessel. I want to check the buckling load for individual components.

This pressure vessel is subject to hydrostatic pressure.

So if i want to check this, how to do that. I am not perticular about the softwares.

thanks

Nonlinear Buckling of Cylindrical Tubes w/ ANSYS

Hi all,

I'm trying to run a nonlinear (elastic for now) buckling analysis in ANSYS. Basically I have a thin cylindrical shell (made up of SHELL181). fixed at one end (rigid) and applied force and/or displacement specified on the other end to make it buckle.

I have pretty much tried all options. These were:

i) Linear buckling (Eigenbuckling)

ii) Displacement controlled buckling with a lateral point force to provide eccentricity/imperfection.

iii)Force controlled buckling with, again, a lateral point force (arc-length method)

Postbuckling and Progressive Damage Analysis

Salam and Hi!

Can anyone share here, your understanding on POST BUCKLING and PROGRESSIVE DAMAGE ANALYSIS.

Buckling of Stepped column

Hi everyone,

Does anyone have the work experience on stepped column kind of structure?

I would like to know, how to determine the crippling load for stepped column kind of structures? If anyone have the materials pertaining to the subject, please do share (if interested).

 

Thanks and Regards

 

M Gopalakrishnan.

Mechanics of buckled carbon nanotubes on elastomeric substrates

We have studied the scaling of controlled nonlinear buckling processes in materials with dimensions in the molecular range (i.e., ~1 nm) through experimental and theoretical studies of buckling in individual single-wall carbon nanotubes on substrates of poly(dimethylsiloxane). The results show not only the ability to create and manipulate patterns of buckling at these molecular scales, but also, that analytical continuum mechanics theory can explain, quantitatively, all measurable aspects of this system.

Post-buckling and Snap-through Behavior of Inclined Slender Beams

In MEMS fields, a need arises in engineering practice to predict accurately the nonlinear response of slender post-buckling beams, especially the nonlinear transverse stiffness. The bistability of the post-buckling beams is excellent in reducing power consumption of micro-devices or micro-systems. However, the major difficulty in analyzing the post-buckling and snap-through response is the intractability of the geometric nonlinear control equations of large deflection beams.
