MIT Short Course: Machine Learning for Materials Informatics (Live Virtual, Sept. 26-29, 2022)

In this course you will fully learn how to incorporate new materials informatics methods into your own material modeling, analysis and design processes in order to capitalize on recent AI breakthroughs, such as language models (e.g. GPT-3, BERT, LaMDA, etc.), DNA and protein models (e.g., AlphaFold), graph neural networks applied from molecular to macroscale structures, and a host of methods adapted for computer vision including diffusion models (as used in DALL-E 2 or Imagen), specifically for the analysis, design and modeling of materials. The course involves a mix of lectures, hands-on labs and clinics for an immersive experience. Participants will learn fundamentals and techniques to deploy machine learning in materials development and gain first-hand understanding of state-of-the art tools for varied applications ranging from data mining to inverse design. We will cover scales from the molecular to the continuum.

PhD vacancy (4 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).

Summer Intern Position in Material Modeling- PhD students of Mechanical /Structural Enginnering

A summer internship position is available in Joint academic-industrial project between Nordisch LLC and Michigan State University. We seeks to improve the understanding of the constitutive behavior of soft materials in extreme conditions. In particular, this is important for evaluating the long-term performance of soft materials that are used as critical components in various systems.

Journal Club for February 2020: Machine Learning in Mechanics: simple resources, examples & opportunities

Machine learning (ML) in Mechanics is a fascinating and timely topic. This article follows from a kind invitation to provide some thoughts about the use of ML algorithms to solve mechanics problems by overviewing my past and current research efforts along with students and collaborators in this field. A brief introduction on ML is initially provided for the colleagues not familiar with the topic, followed by a section about the usefulness of ML in Mechanics, and finally I will reflect on the challenges and opportunities in this field.

The remarkable mechanical properties of crumpled materials

Mechanics of crumpled materials

Crumpled materials exhibit unusual and as yet unexpained mechanical properties. Through the surprisingly complex morphologies of facets and ridges formed in the crumpling of paper into a ball or densser materials, very high strength to weight ratios can emerge.

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:

Postdoctoral and graduate student positions available

Applications are invited for multiple postdoctoral positions to work with J. Hanna in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Nevada, Reno.  Those interested in Ph.D. and M.S. positions are also invited to make contact.

PhD Positions Available (up to 2) on Fatigue Resistance of Bone

Bones not only support and protect the various organs of our body but provide structure and enable mobility making them the most important structural materials in the human body. While aging, diet and health are known to significantly affect the structural integrity and fracture resistance of bone, fatigue, a significantly more important loading condition, is rarely studied.

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:
