Rotator Position Open: NSF Program Director of the Mechanics of Materials and Structures (MoMS) Program

Dear Colleagues, Peers, Friends, and Savants,

Do you want to give back to your community, broaden your research horizons, understand the other side of funding, or just seek a temporary change of venue to reinvigorate yourself? Then, here is an opportunity at NSF/MoMS to do just that: https://beta.nsf.gov/careers/openings/eng/cmmi/cmmi-2020-1826.

Please, consider, disseminate, and encourage worthy candidates. I'm always available to provide more information. You know how to contact me.

Remote Mechanics Teaching. How to do it well?

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

Many of us will be teaching remotely soon.  I wonder what is most effective when it comes to mechanics.

In our department we have been having meetings to help professors figure out what is the approach to the online teaching modality.  There have been lots of suggestions:

PhD Studentships in Novel Modelling Methodologies for Hybrid and Titanium Alloys Systems Subjected to Impact Loading

3.5-year D.Phil. studentship

Supervisor: Prof Nik Petrinic

 

We are seeking to recruit students for two doctoral projects arising as part of a long-term collaboration with Rolls-Royce. In particular, the projects will support future design of large gas turbine engines for civil aviation. The students will be members of the Impact Engineering Team, a large and vibrant team whose industrial sponsors are the largest global engineering organisations (see iel.eng.ox.ac.uk).

MIT Faculty Positions in Civil and Environmental Engineering

The MIT Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) invites applications for several tenure-track faculty positions to begin July 2017 or thereafter. Appointments will be at the assistant or untenured associate professor level. In special cases, a senior faculty appointment may be possible.  We will consider exceptional candidates in all areas relevant to the mission and vision of the department, but the department is especially looking for candidates to expand or strengthen its current areas of:

A short course on "stability analysis and bifurcation theory" by Ryan Elliott

With a growing interest in soft materials, stability and bifurcation analysis is re-emerging to be a critical topic for mechanicians. There are some excellent books out there but most tend to focus on finite dimensional systems rather than (continuous) infinite dimensional systems which are of most interest to mechanicians. In general, much of the modern developments on this topic are scattered across journal papers and perhaps there are not too many pedagogical resources for beginners.

Common questions about developing educational apps

This afternoon, I had an extremely pleasant Google hangout with Daniel Suo, and Professors Zhigang Suo and Teng Li . Our main focus was on brainstorming ideas on how to improve the user experience on iMechanica. After an hour or so our conversation drifted towards educational topics including novel ways of incorporating technology in STEM education.

Robust Stability at the Swallowtail Singularity

Consider the set of monic fourth-order real polynomials transformed so that the constant term is one. In the three-dimensional space of the coefficients describing this set, the domain of asymptotic stability is bounded by a surface with the Whitney umbrella singularity. The maximum of the real parts of the roots of these polynomials is globally minimized at the Swallowtail singular point of the discriminant surface of the set corresponding to a negative real root of multiplicity four.

Nonlinear Physical Systems: Spectral Analysis, Stability and Bifurcations

Bringing together 18 chapters written by leading experts in dynamical systems, operator theory, partial differential equations, and solid- and fluid mechanics, this book presents state-of-the-art approaches to a wide spectrum of new and challenging stability problems.

FOR A SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE UNIVERSITY

Given the complexity of present and
future global challenges, it is the university´s social responsibility
to contribute to society by understanding the full extent of its needs
and current and future problems, and to prepare it to deal with them
effectively and efficiently (CMES, 2009)1. In this sense, due to its
ability to take the lead in matters of knowledge creation, promotion and
dissemination, the university becomes the ultimate guidance governments
possess in their quest to find solutions to inequality and exclusion.

European computational mechanics degrees

I'm looking for a good quality master's degree in computational mechanics. I currently live in Australia, and would prefer to study in Europe (must be an English based program as well). I have undergradaute degrees in mechanical engineering and computer science.

Two main degrees that stick out for me are the ones at the University of Stuttgart, and the Technical University of Munich.
