We currently have openings for two PhD students in the CSM group:
PhD Student Opening#1: Research opportunites exist in the general area of computational mechanics with emphasis on development of advanced methods (expecially particle methods) for solving large-deformation high-rate problems in mechanics.
PhD Student Opening#2: Research opportunites exist in the general area of computational and theoretical constitutive modeling, with emphasis on large deformation inelasticity, failure, fracture, induced anisotropy, etc. Applications would include hierarchical upscaling (i.e., inferring macroscale properties from microscale simulations).
