Project description:

PhD scholarship application in Geomechanics at University of Lyon - Micromechanical and multi-scale behaviour of damaged heterogeneous rocks around underground excavations



The goal of this project is to investigate the multi-scale behaviour of clay rocks, going from microscopic to macroscopic scale, with application to underground drilling. The research will be based on multi-scale approach and numerical method allowing to model microstructure media in a double-scale framework (FEMxFEM). Please, see the full description in the attached file here below.

Post doc position in computational solid mechanics

We in Aalto Univeristy (Finland), Department of Mechanical Engineering, look for a post doc to join our group for a study on the breakage and fragmentation of ice blocks under compressive loads. The fragmentation process is complicated and requires the use of novel experiments and numerical models, and in this research, you will be working on both. The unique experiments on this topic will be performed in the cold room of the department.  Numerical modelling will be done on a variety of scales.

PhD with CSC scholarship on fault mechanics

In the last two decades, considerable observational and theoretical work has been devoted toall aspects of earthquake prediction research, for solving fundamental questions concerningthe mechanics of fault systems, as well as for answering questions regarding earthquakehazard.The european natural observatory of the Corinth Rift (, a very rapidlydeforming area (opening strain rate of ~10-6/yr) where one or more earthquakes withmagnitudes above 6 are expected in the coming decades provides a framework in which themechanics of faults can be studied

Doctoral Candidate Position in Computational Ice Mechanics

We are looking for a doctoral student to join our Arctic Marine and Ice Technology research group at the Aalto University (Finland), Department of Mechanical Engineering, to study ice-structure interaction process in shallow water using numerical simulations.  In the complex ice-structure interaction process an intact ice sheet fails into discrete ice blocks, which affect further stages of the process. Realistic calculations of ice loads due to this process require modeling of the ice blocks and their pile-up process.

Impact Force plotting using Abaqus/Explicit

Hello Everyone

I am trying to simulate material dumping process from shovel onto mining dump truck. And for that i am using Abaqus/Explicit.  When i plot the contact force of material falling onto truck body under gravity, it gives me the maximum value of 0.12e+11, where as a simple theoretical analysis shows that the resulting impact force for 100 tons of material falling under gravity should be 9e5 N. I am not been able to understand the reason that why Abaqus /Explicit is exaggerating the impact/contact force so much. And i dont know how to correct this thing.
