PhD and Postdoc positions in nonlinear structural mechanics

I am seeking enthusiastic students and recent graduates to join my group at the University of Missouri - Columbia to work on the nonlinear structural mechanics of folded and 3D printed materials such as origami tessellations and lattices. Positions are available at the level of Graduate Research Assistants and Postdoctoral Fellows. Candidates with background in nonlinear finite element analysis are particularly encouraged to apply.

A numerical study of elastic bodies that are described by constitutive equations that exhibit limited strains

Recently, a very general and novel class of implicit bodies has been developed to describe the elastic response of solids. It contains as a special subclass the classical Cauchy and Green elastic bodies. Within the class of such bodies, one can obtain through a rigorous approximation, constitutive relations for the linearized strain as a nonlinear function of the stress. Such an approximation is not possible within classical theories of Cauchy and Green elasticity, where the process of linearization will only lead to the classical linearized elastic body.
