Phd / PostDoc position Additive Manufacturing - Polymers

A postdoc or a PhD position are available immediately at the Laboratoire de Mecanique des Solides (Solid Mechanics) at https://www.polytechnique.edu/The project is focused on understanding the impact of UV polymerization on the constitutive behaviour of printed polymer composites. The position is part of an ongoing collaboration with a german academic partner.

Work of adhesion/separation between soft elastomers of different mixing ratios

Adhesion between soft matter is a universal mechanical problem in bio-engineering and bio-integration. The Johnson–Kendall–Roberts (JKR) method is widely used to measure the work of adhesion and work of separation between soft materials.

Modeling the dynamic mechanical analysis of a single pulp fiber

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

Hi there,

 

I am trying to model the DMA test for single pulp fiber. In this research I can I assume whatever procedure or materials parameters I need, from an old PhD thesis I took some materials parameters for the cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin and by using the composite theories I calculated the stiffness matrices for each constituent I have and from there I calculated the stiffness matrix of the fiber, and of course calculated the longitudinal young’s modulus of the fiber at the room temperature.
