PhD position in Smart and Functional Materials at Mahindra University, India

 

 

We are looking for an enthusiastic student who is interested in working in the field of smart and functional materials, in the department of mechanical engineering at Mahindra University in Hyderabad, India. The selected candidate will have the opportunity to conduct a bottom-up research towards developing a novel “active” composite. The research lifecycle encompasses modelling & simulation, design optimization, experimentation & validation of the composite.

Bulky auxeticity, tensile buckling and deck-of-cards kinematics emerging from structured continua

Complex mechanical behaviours are generally met in macroscopically homogeneous media as effects of inelastic responses or as results of unconventional material properties, which are postulated or due to structural systems at the meso/micro-scale.

Examples are strain localization due to plasticity or damage and metamaterials exhibiting negative Poisson’s ratios resulting from special porous, eventually buckling, sub-structures.

Universal route for the emergence of exceptional points in PT-symmetric metamaterials with unfolding spectral symmetries

We introduce a class of parity-time symmetric elastodynamic metamaterials (Ed-MetaMater) whose Hermitian counterpart exhibits unfolding (fractal) spectral symmetries. Our study reveals a scale-free formation of exceptional points in those Ed-MetaMaters whose density is dictated by the fractal dimension of their Hermitian spectra.

3D printed Polyurethane : Viscoelastic experimental characterization and computational modelling

Digital Light Synthesis (DLS) technology creates ample opportunities for making 3D printed soft polymers for a wide range of grades and properties. In DLS, a 3D printer uses a continuous building technique in which the curing process is activated by an ultra-violet (UV) light. In this contribution, EUP40, a recently invented commercially available elastomeric polyurethane (EPU) printed by the DLS technology, is experimentally characterized.

Fully Funded PhD Position on Mechanical Metamaterials at the University of Missouri, Columbia

The position: I am looking to support a PhD student to work with me towards the design, modeling, fabrication and testing of mechanical metamaterials with emphasis on morphing structures such as origami tessellations and lattice materials. The study will focus on deriving and validating novel stress-strain relationships that transcend the standard framework of Hook's law. Sought applications will be in the domains of (i) self-deploying space structures; (ii) soft robotics; and (iii) "invisibility" cloaks.

Highly paid PhD positions

Regarding the post:

http://imechanica.org/node/22666

Here are some clarifications:

(1) Applicants do not need to have English Language Proficiency test results at the time of applying. However, they need to have this before they could start a PhD. 

(2) Salary range is approx £31k to £35k per annum, which is over double that of a normal PhD studentship in the UK.

(3) Deadline 01 October, 2018.

Can you "chop" a mechanical wave?

In this paper we highlight several interesting phenomena that may emerge from coupling simple elastic systems like 1d bars. While in compostes we usually focus on wave propagation normal to the stratification direction (composite layers are coupled in series), here we show that extreme attenuation at multiple frequencies may emerge in linear systems that are coupled transversaly. We also introduce a simple device that act as a chopper for mechanical signals.

Nature paper about mechanical metamaterials violating Betti's theorem

Maybe because I am proud of Betti's theorem being italian, I am curious about this big emphasys on systems violating it.  They may "open avenues for energy absorption, conversion and harvesting, soft robotics, prosthetics and optomechanics".... ?  I'd be curious to hear some comments.   Anyway, the last author Andrea Alu is anyway italian like Betti.
