Multiple PhD positions in microstructure-mechanics relationships for structural materials at high temperatures

Multiple PhD positions are available for the fall 2012/winter 2013 semesters in microstructure-mechanics relationships for structural materials at high temperatures in the Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems ( at Mississippi State University.  The project is funded through Air Force Office for Scientific Research (AFOSR) and will involve multiscale materials characterization, in situ SEM experiments, and high temperature mechanical testing for turbine blade structural materials (nickel-based superalloys).

Post Doctoral Appointment in Deformation-Microstructure Modeling

Professor Gregory B. Thompson at the University of Alabama seeks post doctoral applicants for projects related to deformation modeling and oxidation in high temperature ceramic systems.  The qualified candidate will use modeling to explain and help direct experimental studies.

Choice of the analysis for stress relaxation of PBT in real time scale

I am trying to simulate the long term behaviour of the PBT (polybutyelene terephtalate) thermoplastic.

How can I find material properties of metallic glasses?

I am now going to model a sample with metallic glass (Cu-Zr-Ti) under stress and temperature loads. I wonder whether there is some existing database to find material properties, in particular, the creep properties with respect to temperature and stresses. Then I can use these data as input for a FE analysis.

Thank you very much!

Super stretchy carbon nanotubes

We report exceptional ductile behavior in individual double-walled and triple-walled carbon nanotubes at temperatures above 2000 C, with tensile elongation of 190% and diameter reduction of 90%, during in situ tensile-loading experiments conducted inside a high-resolution transmission electron microscope. Concurrent atomic-scale microstructure observations reveal that the superelongation is attributed to a high temperature creep deformation mechanism mediated by atom or vacancy diffusion, dislocation climb, and kink motion at high temperatures. The superelongation in double-walled and triple-walled carbon nanotubes, the creep deformation mechanism, and dislocation climb in carbon nanotubes are reported here for the first time.
