Postdoc position available at Columbia University in the City of New York

We have one or more postdoc positions available, to be filled immediately, in my research group. We are looking for postdocs in the broad area of computational mechanics.  Candidates should have expertise in modeling dynamic responses of path-dependent materials. Our project is specifically focused on the development and validation of multiscale models for energetic/porous/polycrystalline materials across length scales. More details will be provided to interested candidates.

Postdoctoral Position in Compuational Mechanics of Energetic Materials

 A postdoctoral position is available in the area of multsicale modeling of energetic materials at Rutgers University working under the supervision of Prof. Cuitino. This is a multi-investigator project which will be supported partially by the federal grants.  Candidates with a strong background in consittuvive modeling of coupled mechanical thermal chemical phenomena,  parallel finite element and multiscale methods are highly encouraged to apply.

Postdoctoral position in multiscale modeling at RPI

There is an opening for a postdoctoral research position in the Advanced Computational Research Laboratory at RPI, Troy, NY.to work on an ongoing project sponsored by the Office of Naval Research. The project involves the multiscale modeling of particulate composites under extreme loading conditions. This is a great opportunity to be involved in challenging
multiscale computational techniques based on meshfree methods. Encouraged to
apply are creative, self-motivated candidates with a sound background in
computational mechanics.

Plastic bonded energetic materials

plastic bonded explosives are composites containing energetic grains, ranging in size from less than one to a few hundred micrometers, embedded in a matrix of high-polymer binder.

Mitigating the threat of terrorist attacks

The following are links to the FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) documents:

Mitigating the threat of terrorist attacks against high occupancy buildings is a challenging task.

Chapter 1: ASSET VALUE, THREAT/HAZARD, VULNERABILITY, AND RISK
This chapter presents several methodologies for architects and engineers to quantify risk and to identify the most effective mitigation measures to achieve a desired level of protection against terrorist attacks at an acceptable cost.

Size effect of energetic crystals in high explosives and solid propellants

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

Energetic materials, such as solid propellants and high explosives, can be considered as composite materials with energetic particles embedded in polymeric binder matrix. These energetic materials display strong particle size effects. For example, large particles debond earlier than small ones in high explosives.
