Postdoc at LMS, Ecole Polytechnique

Dear all,

we open one year position (with possible prolongation) at Laboratoire de Mécanique des Solides, Ecole Polytechnique Palaiseau.

The job is concerned with kinematic analysis by digital image correlation of X-ray micro-tomography data obtained during in-situ triaxial testing of porous carbonate rocks. The aims are to charcterize localization, pore colapse and formation of compaction bands, for the purpose of underground storage and more particularly CO2 sequestration

The position starts as soon as possible 2023, is financed by the Interdisciplinary Center E4C (Energy for Clamate) and relates to CO2 geological sequestration.

Please, find details bellow:

Measurements of 3D full mechanical fields in porous carbonate rocks by digital image correlation and application to for geological sequestration of CO2

The general topic is concerned with energy transition and more particularly with underground sequestration of carbon dioxide in porous carbonate reservoir rocks.

Carbonate reservoir rocks present pronounced multiscale microstructural heterogeneities, which complicates the modeling of their short term hydro-mechanical behavior and long term integrity.

To understand the mechanical implications of these microstructural heterogeneities we use X-ray microcomputed tomography (Lab and Synchrotron radiation) and DVC (digital volume correlation), aiming to characterize the in situ development of localization patterns and compaction bands in porous carbonates experiencing triaxial loadings.

ACM Symposium on Computational Fabrication (SCF), U. Washington (26-28 October 2022)

Hello Everyone,

We are excited to host the ACM Symposium on Computational Fabrication (SCF) this October 26-28th at the University of Washington (UW) in Seattle. SCF provides a holistic home for new research and developments in the interdisciplinary areas of digital manufacturing and computational design. The meeting provides a venue to discuss cutting-edge results and build cross-domain collaborations and connections. We are excited to bring this venue to the west coast for the first time!

Attendees and presenters have backgrounds in architectural design, computer science, mechanical engineering, human-computer interaction, biology, materials science, robotics, and math. The goal of SCF is to advance the state-of-the-art in computational fabrication via the exchange of new research, discussions, and collaborations and to become the pre-eminent venue for such activities in the burgeoning field of Computational Design and Fabrication.

Please join us! Register here: https://scf.acm.org/2022

Early Bird Closes on Oct 1st.

We hope to see you there,

Nadya Peek, Jeff Lipton, and Adriana Schulz

Postdoc, Laboratoire ISTERRE Grenoble

Pour la fin du projet ANR e-WARNINGS*, nous cherchons un post-doc d’une duré de 18 mois avec un profil traitement du signal, sismologie et/ou sciences des matériaux.

*Early detection of fatigue and intermittent failure using full-field approved Acoustic Emission multiplets
(Détection précoce de la rupture par fatigue ou intermittente via les multiplets acoustiques validés en champ complet)

Suite à la mise en évidence de la détection de signaux d’émission acoustique spécifiques de la propagation de fissures par fatigue (multiplets), dans différents matériaux métalliques, le post doc aura pour but de développer de nouvelles méthodes et algorithmes de détection de ces multiplets, en particulier pour des situations de type industriel caractérisées par des rapports signal/bruit non optimisés et des histoires de chargement plus irrégulières.

Le post-doc se déroulera au Laboratoire ISTERRE Grenoble avec Jérôme Weiss, en collaboration avec la société Mistras Group et Mateis.

3rd Symposium on Acoustic Metamaterials, Nîmes, France (19-21 Oct.)

Dear Colleagues,

As you may have noticed our annual event was missing during the last two years, for obvious reasons.

We now have the pleasure to disclose the details of the next edition!

The 3rd « Symposium on Acoustic Metamaterials » (SAM) will be held from 19th to 21st October 2022 in Nîmes (France), organised by YRAM (Young Researchers in Acoustic Metamaterials).

The Symposium on Acoustic Metamaterials is mainly targeted to Early Career Investigators, PhD candidates, as well as to anyone wishing to learn more about acoustic and elastic metamaterials. SAM aims at sharing new advances and breakthroughs, as well as fostering the community of young researchers in the field of acoustic metamaterials. The 3rd SAM will be organised around 6 different sessions comprising 20 min talks and 5 plenary lectures.

Plenary speakers:

  • Prof. Romain Fleury (EPFL, Switzerland)
  • Dr. Gaëlle Poignand (LAUM, France)
  • Prof. Elke Deckers (KU Leuven, Belgium)
  • Dr. Noé Jiménez (UPV, Spain)
  • Prof. Corentin Coulais (UVA, Netherlands)

Topics covered by the Symposium are listed below but are not restricted to:

– Acoustic/elastic metamaterials and phononic crystals

– Acoustic/elastic metasurfaces

– Non-reciprocal manipulation of acoustic/elastic waves

– Acoustic/elastic meta-devices based on transformation acoustics, parity-time symmetric acoustics, topological acoustics

– Novel physical concepts for harnessing acoustic/elastic waves

– New applications of metamaterial-based functional devices for acoustic sensing, cloaking, imaging, absorption, energy harvesting, etc.

Different social events and dissemination activities will be organised during the Symposium (a scientific concert, visit of Nîmes Arena, extra-day visit to Aigues-Mortes close to the Natural Parc of Camargue).

Participation fee for presenters/attendees at the Symposium is €250.00. This fee covers all 3 lunches + morning and afternoon catering + Thursday’s guided tour of Nîmes Arena from 19th Oct 2022 to 21st Oct 2022.

Registration is mandatory before submitting the abstractRegistration should be completed online before 8th October 2022. Please find enclosed the flyer of the event.

Abstracts submission should be performed simultaneously with the registration before 31st August 2022.

For more information, see the SAM website.

Looking forward to seeing you in Nîmes!

Applied Mathematical Challenges and Recent Advances in the Micro-Mechanics of Matter 2022 , 1-2 September 2022 in Bristol, UK

Understanding the mechanical behaviour of solids, liquids and soft and biological materials requires insight into phenomena at different length scales (from bacterial films to volcanic flows). They are both a scientific challenge and an important technological problem. An overarching framework is provided by the name “micro-mechanics”. Combining techniques from continuum mechanics, dynamical systems and statistical mechanics, micro-mechanics uses knowledge of their microscopic structure to make predictive models of the mechanical properties of liquids, solids and soft matter.
