Abstract:

Online finite element analysis of nanoindentation (indentation)

Dear All, 

 

We (the NanoBIO Node at Illinois ) have a preliminary release of an online finite element analysis of nanoindentation (indentation) tool using FEAP

This preliminary release is limited to linear elastic material, axisymmetric geometry, spherical rigid indenter, and various boundary conditions.

Post-doctoral position in biological and biomimetic materials at McGill University

I have an open position for a Post-doctoral researcher in the area of the mechanics of biological materials and novel biomimetic materials, starting immediately. The projects involve mechanics of biological and engineered nano and micro-interfaces, mechanics of fish scales, and design, fabrication and testing of composite materials inspired from nacre. The successful candidate will lead 1-2 projects and will be involved in another 2-3 ongoing projects in these areas, in collaboration with graduate students (more below).

    Call for Abstracts: Mechanics of Biological Materials at the 2009 SEM Annual Conference & Exposition, June 1-3 2009, Albuquerque

    We are now accepting abstracts on: 

    • Mechanics of hard and soft biological materials
    • Mechanics of biomimetic materials and systems
    • Experimental methods applied to biological materials and systems 

    Sponsor: Biological Systems and Materials Technical Division (http://sem.org/TDIV-BiologicallyInspiredMaterials.asp) 

    Organizers:

    Ph.D. Research Assistantship in Multi-Scale/Multi-Physics Material Modeling at the University of Colorado, Boulder

    A graduate student researcher is sought to work on a theoretical and computational aspect of multiscale/ multi-physics material modeling (with an emphasis on biological materials and structures). The project’s envisioned outcome is to a better understanding of the relationship between the small scale physics and structures and the overall macroscopic properties of a material. This research has application in the design of new, smart material, or in the development of treatment for injuries and disease of biological tissues.

    MRS Symposium: Mechanics of Biological and Bio-Inspired Materials

    Symposium DD at the upcoming Materials Research Society Annual Meeting (Nov. 26-Dec. 1, Boston, MA) will be the latest in a series of MRS symposia on the mechanics of biological materials and materials designed following natural principles ("biomimetic" or "bio-inspired").   The full program is available at the MRS website (www.mrs.org).  This topic was also the subject of the August, 2006 focus issue of the Journal of Materials Research, which contained over 30 articles on the subject.
