A nonlinear static analysis of a masonry church by NOSA-ITACA

The last tutorial (Tutorial4) about a non linear static analysis of a masonry church performed by the NOSA-ITACA code, is now available at http://www.nosaitaca.it/software/. We perform the analysis supposing the structure made of two masonry-like materials with zero tensile strength and bounded compressive strength and a linear elastic material.

Postdoctoral Researcher at MIT - Geomechanics and Multiphase Flow in Porous Media

We have an opening for a postdoctoral researcher to perform original research on geomechanics and multiphase flow for subsurface engineering applications, with a particular emphasis on the poromechanics of geologic faults. The successful candidate will develop numerical methods to model coupled processes on high-performance computing platforms.

Modal analysis of historical masonry structures: Linear perturbation and software benchmarking

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0950061818322116 The mechanical behavior of masonry materials has a common feature: a nonlinear behavior with high compressive strength and very low tensile strength. As a consequence, old masonry buildings generally present cracks due to permanent loads and/or accidental events. Therefore, the characterization of the global dynamic behavior of masonry structures should take into account the presence of existing cracks.

Postdoctoral vacancy (3 years) on patient-specific design and finite element modelling of 3D printed medical implants

3D printing or Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies carry the promise of revolutionizing the quality and efficiency of healthcare. However, the required technologies, even when available, are currently too fragmented to be integrated into routine, affordable and streamlined solutions that can benefit a large number of patients. The challenge thereby is to deliver 3D printing technologies that enable:

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.

Research Position Computational Fracture Mechanics

A research position is available at the Erich Schmid Institute of Materials Science of the Austrian Academy of Sciences in order to conduct a strategic project funded by the COMET-K2 Competence Center on Integrated Research in Materials, Processing and Product Engineering in Leoben.

Image-based Finite Element Method for Industry 2018: Swansea, 3-6 Sep 2018

Image-based meshing is the process by which 3D images (e.g. X-ray CT or laser scanning) are converted into ultra-high resolution simulations. 3D imaging is increasingly being used in the industrial sector for inspection, non-destructive testing / evaluation (NDT/NDE) and metrology but image-based modelling is still an underutilised technique. Our aim is that the activities of IBFEM-4i will facilitate a wider adoption of image-based modelling and provide a platform to discuss the cutting-edge developments in the field.

4 postdoc positions in additive manufacturing software development and NDT

We look for 4 postdoctoral researchers (or equivalent by experience) in the field of software development for and nondestructive inspection of 3D printed components. The targeted sectors of application are medical and high-end industrial applications. Companies are strongly involved in the research projects.

User-defined amplitudeS using UAMP subroutine in ABAQUS

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

Dear all,

I need to use two user-defined amplitudes in my model in order to apply two separate variable-dependent forces on two separate partitions. I have been struggling with this for long now, and the documentation says "There is one exception in Abaqus/Standard: only one solution-dependent amplitude (used for superplastic forming) can be active during each step."

I see the possibility of defining multiple solution-dependent amplitudes in CAE, but in UAMP the variables such as ampValueOld, ampValueNew, etc. may take only one value.
