PhD position at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in solid mechanics and fracture mechanics of composite materials

We have an open position as a PhD student in the area of fracture mechanics of fibre composites. The focus of the position is to develop element test specimens, i.e., test specimens that are purposely-designed with the aim of checking the accuracy of model predictions of damage evolution (two or more damage types) in composite structures subjected to static and cyclic loading

Postdoc vacancy (3 years) on computational mechanics of thick adhesive joints in 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).

Mode II fracture of an elastic-plastic sandwich layer

Dear iMechanicians,

Please find below a paper, co-authored with Ivan Cuesta and Norman Fleck, on the mode II fracture of elastic-plastic sandwich layers. The paper is part of the special issue in the Journal of Applied Mechanics dedicated to John Hutchinson's 80th anniversary and the Century Fracture Mechanics Summit.
