5th FSSIC Fluid-Structure Sound interactions and Control Symposium, Chania, Greece, 27-30 August 2019

Dear Colleagues,

We have the pleasure to invite you at the 5th Fluid-Structure Sound interactions and Control Symposium in Chania, Crete island, Greece,  from 27-30 August 2019.

The FSSIC Scientific Committee gave us the honour to organise the fifth FSSIC in the beautiful city of Chania. For the organisation, we benefit from the contribution of Professor Georgios Stavroulakis and Dr. Maria Bakatsaki, of the Technical University of Chania.

Multiple postdoc openings at UC San Diego (USA) and Cardiff University (UK) + two PhDs at Cardiff University (UK)

Applications are sought for multiple Post-Doctoral Research Associates at University of California, San Diego (USA) and Cardiff University (UK) and two PhDs (Cardiff) to join a very active cross-continental M2DO research lab. The primary research focus is to develop topology optimization for multiscale and multiphysics problems optimizing materials and structures. The research members are required to travel between US and UK regardless of their bases.

Position filled: Postdoc opening in design optimisation at the University of California, San Diego

The Multiscale and Multiphysics Design Optimization Group at the University of California, San Diego, is looking for a Postdoc. The research will develop numerical methods in coupled multiphysics and multiscale topology optimisation in aircraft in a modularized and parallel computing environment. It is expected that the applicants would have background in topology optimization or level set method, aeroelasticity, computer programming and computational mechanics.

Physical Instabilities in FSI

In this Tech Brief, we present two interesting fluid-structure interaction problems involving adaptive meshing and physical instability

Faculty Positions in Solid Mechanics, Structural Dynamics & Aeroelasticity at the Georgia Institute of Technology

The School of Aerospace Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology invites nominations and applications for two faculty positions in the areas of solid mechanics, structural dynamics, and aeroelasticity.  Appointments at all ranks will be considered. While candidates in all related areas of research will be considered, candidates with a strong experimental background are particularly sought.

Coupling Abaqus with an aeroedynamic code - PART 2

In a previous post some months ago (see here), I mentioned some of the questions I had considering the aeroelastic response of a wind turbine rotor. In this post I just want to give, for those interested, a brief status report.

Coupling Abaqus with an aeroedynamic BEM code to compute aeroelastic respons

For my graduation work (student at the Delft university of Technology, The Netherlands), I am trying to model the aeroelastic behavior of a wind turbine rotor. For this end I use an Abaqus model of a wind turbine blade (which is a composite structure with different fiber layers and corresponding orientation). The aerodynamic force is calculated by a BEM code (Blade Element Momentum theory), which is a simplified engineering aerodynamic code: fast but still quite good. Using CFD to calculate the loads is out of the question since it requires far too much time to calculate.

Dr. Liviu Librescu (1930-2007)

Professor Dr. Liviu Librescu was murdered while teaching a solid mechanics course at Virginia Tech on April 16, 2007.

The great works he left behind are, including, but not limited to, the following books (which are the ones in English):
