Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) conference

The ICME Conference 2020, a HxGN LIVE event is a 3-days intensive online conference on October 6-8, 2020 for executives, R&D, manufacturing professionals, engineers, and designers to learn, explore and share about Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) to enable companies to blur the boundaries between manufacturing, materials and part performance for the optimal design of innovative quality products.

Four Fully Funded PhD Positions

#IPPTPAN in collaboration with Department of Engineering at #NTU is offering four fully supported #PhD positions in the following fields:

 

1) Non-linear thermo-mechanical behaviour of polycrystalline shape memory alloys undergoing complex loadings < https://www.ippt.pan.pl/_download/tem_prac_dok/2020_z_kowalewski_en_1.pdf >

 

PhD vacancy (3 years) on mechanical testing of recyclable vitrimer composites

Vitrimers are a groundbreaking development in polymer chemistry. This new class of polymers is neither thermoset, nor thermoplastic, but inherits properties from both polymer classes. Vitrimers were "invented" by Prof. Leibler in Paris in 2011 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitrimers).

Postdoc Position in “Multi-Scale Modeling of Composites”

 

A postdoctoral position in “Multi-Scale Modeling of Composites” is available in Tehrani Group in the Walker Department of Mechanical Engineering at UT Austin. The position starts in August 2020. The required qualifications for this position are as follows:

·       Acquired a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering or a closely related field before the position start date.

PhD/postdoc vacancy (4 years) on computational mechanics of large wind turbine blades

Over the last years, UGent-MMS has developed the stand-alone BladeMesher software for generating finite element models of large wind turbine blades. The software reads in the material data and airfoil data of the wind turbine blade, and automatically constructs the geometry and finite element mesh for the blade. In a next step, the nodal and element information of the finite element mesh is written out to an input file for a commercial finite element solver (Abaqus in this case).

PhD vacancy (3 years) on experimental testing of thermoplastic automotive composites

Thermoplastic composites are gaining more and more interest in automotive, aerospace and sports applications, because of the short cycle times and recycling possibilities. Besides short fibre-reinforced thermoplastics, also continuous fibre-reinforced thermoplastic composites are being considered for load-carrying structures. However, their behaviour during manufacturing and during in-service use is very different from the traditional thermoset composites (typically epoxy-based).

A fully funded PhD Position Available at Stony Brook University

One PhD position is available for Fall 2020 in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Stony Brook University, New York Long Island. The research program focuses on the mechanics and design of novel advanced materials and metamaterials to achieve high mechanical performance, new wave propagation features, and multifunctional characteristics. The candidates with background in solid mechanics and finite element analysis are highly encouraged to apply.

Compressive performance of MAX phase composites

Compressive performance and crack propagation in MAX phase composites 

 

Here micro CT was used to reveal the structure performance relationships in metal/ceramic composites based on Ti2AlC / Al alloy combinations.

The results show the promise of infiltrated max phase materials in the production of high performance composites.

5 PhD/postdoc vacancies in mechanics of composites @ Ghent University (Belgium)

The Mechanics of Materials and Structures research group at Ghent University (Belgium) is recruiting 5 PhD/postdoc researchers in the field of experimental and computational mechanics of composites. There are 5 positions:

PostDoc position in multi-scale computational mechanics to study the impact failure of composites

Context
As part of a collaborative project between different Belgian industrial partners and Universities related to the study of composite laminate under impacts, the main objective of the doctoral position will be to develop a multi-scale numerical framework to study failure of the synthesized materials.

Material Testing: Crucial Step in Bridge Development & Engineering Design

Bridge failures underscore the importance of rigorous material testing. The collapse of the incomplete pedestrian bridge at Florida International University on March 2018 is an example where design errors led to growing cracks as described by OSHA.

Although material failure is not the sole reason for bridge failures, it is a crucial step for selecting the right materials, bridge design analysis, and construction testing.

3 PhD positions (4 years) on ultrasound inspection of layered materials

Ghent University (Belgium) has three open PhD positions of each 4 years on ultrasound inspection of layered materials, ranging from composites over coated pipelines to wood. More information can be found on http://www.composites.ugent.be/PhD_job_vacancies_PhD_job_positions_compo....

Workshop "Novel Developments in Failure Analysis of Composite Materials and Structures" for PhD students

Dear Colleagues, In the context of the EU Marie Curie ITN Project FULLCOMP, a workshop "Novel Developments in Failure Analysis of Composite Materials and Structures" for PhD students and young researchers will take place on 30-31 July 2018 at the Leibniz Universität Hannover. This workshop presents recent developments in various aspects of failure analysis of composite structures, ranging from material modelling to structural modelling and from testing and identification aspects to numerical analysis.

PhD vacancy (4 years) on fatigue testing of composites with advanced instrumentation

Composites are used more and more as structural components in aerospace industry, automotive sector, wind energy applications,… As a consequence, the loads on those composite components are much higher than for secondary components, and can lead to fatigue damage in the composite part. Moreover, the fatigue behaviour of fibre-reinforced composites is much more complex than that of metals, because of the many different fibre/polymer combinations, the heterogeneous nature of the composite, the anisotropic behaviour of the composite and the multitude of damage mechanisms.
