Fully – funded PhD opportunity in Metal-Forming and Materials Modelling Group, Imperial College London, Deadline 31st of Aug. 2016

The Metal Forming and Materials Modelling group wishes to provide a FULLY funded studentship to EXCEPTIONAL candidates to conduct PhD research work in the Mechanical Engineering department, at Imperial College London. The research work will be focused on the development of novel metal forming technologies, e.g.

Post-doc position opening in POSTECH, South Korea

A postdoctoral researcher position is available in the area of sheet metal forming, plasticity theory, computational modeling of forming of advanced high strength steels, light-weight alloys  at POSTECH (Pohang University of Science and Technology) working under the supervision of Prof. Myoung-Gyu Lee. He/She will also work with Prof. Frederic Barlat who is a world famous scholar in the field of plasticity. Candidates with a strong background in plasticity theory, computational mechanics of sheet metals, failure analysis are highly encouraged to apply.

Using VGETVRM to compute strain in VUSDFLD ( abaqus explicit subroutine)

hi everybody.
I've used vgetvrm in vusdfld to calculate strain.
I have two question.

1- what's the differences between tensor strain and engineering strain?
I read user subroutine manual and it says"The shear strain components returned from utility subroutine VGETVRM are tensor components and not engineering components."

2-I want to calculate PE11 and PE22 with vgetvrm. but my results are strange.for example PE11 change between -11.14033 and 75.25797.
and PE22 change between -1.5974975E-04 and 4.7500171E-03

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;
