Enquiry about modelling a cylinder filled with water in ABAQUS / CFD

Dear All

 My name is Paula , I am new user in CFD coupled with ABAQUS. I would like to know and understand how can I simulate cell wall filled with  of water. If the tank sloshing example good way to start with cfd/ABAQUS? .

The problem
is that the cytoplasm ( high % is water) has an internal pressure.
would like to make the simulation with outside presure ( hydrostatic pressure)
and find which is the outside pressure to brake the cell
wall and the cytoplasm gets free.

Postdoc position, modeling growth, differentiation and adaptation of biological tissues

I have a one-year vacant postdoc position. The work will be mostly related to development of FE models for modeling growth, differentiation, and adaptation of biological tissues. The postdoc needs to know a lot about nonlinear continuum mechanics and advanced material models and should be able to write FE codes and implement advanced material models in commercial FE programs.

Post-doctoral position at Univ. Pittsburgh: soft tissue buckling

A post-doctoral position is available in the lab of Sachin Velankar at the University of Pittsburgh to conduct experimental research on buckling of soft tissues in cephalopods (octopus or cuttlefish).
