Coconuts, Blood Cells, Snail Armor - What do they have in common?

As the 2010 SIMULIA Customer Conference approaches, it reminds me of a thought-provoking presentation given by Dale Berry of SIMULIA at the 2009 SCC in London.

He reminded the audience, of engineers and researchers, that Realistic Simulation is not only good for evaluating mechanical behavior of product performance, but it’s also an indespenible tool for driving innovative research that improves our lives and society.

Flow Stress Curves for 51CrMoV4 material at varying temperature and strain rates

1] I am Krunal, currently pursuing my masters for University of Sheffield, wherein for my thesis I require to simulate the forging process for commercial vehicle Anti-roll bars using MSC MARC software. 2] I require the flow stress curves for the material 51CrMoV4 at varying temperatures ( approx 850 - 1400 deg celcius ) and varying strain rates ( approx 0.01 to 50 per second). However I am unable to find it....!!

Postdoctoral Associate position available at MIT

A postdoctoral associate position at MIT is available immediately, in the broad area of atomistic, molecular and multi-scale modeling of hierarchical biological, bioinspired and nanostructured materials. Material properties of specific interest include mechanical properties, in particular deformation and failure mechanisms. The work will emphasize on mutable properties (mechanomutability, thermomutability) and the analysis and design of adaptive, responsive, and robust materials through the integration of scales, from nano to macro.

metal foam

cellular metal: space is divided into distinct cells. The boundaries of these cells are made of solid metal, the interior are voids. Ideally, the individual cells are all separated from each other by metal but often this restriction is relaxed
