External collaborations have helped to produce some exciting new papers (1) on image processing tools for experimental data (see paper on spam in JOSS) and (2) insight into, and modeling tools for studying, the mesoscale mechanics of concrete (see paper in Cement and Concrete Research).
We are seeking highly motivated candidates to join our research group as Ph.D. students starting in Fall 2021. We have potential opportunities for research in granular mechanics, mechanics of heterogeneous brittle materials (concrete, composites), dynamic behavior of materials, and tribology. If you are interested, please read about our research throughout our webpage and papers and reach out to us expressing your specific interests. You may also monitor the Department of Mechanical Engineering’s webpages (http://me.jhu.edu) for information on applying to the program.
Chongpu Zhai and Prof. Hurley, along with collaborator Eric Herbold, have published a new paper in PNAS containing exciting results from a study relating granular structure, forces, and ultrasound properties. Find the paper here. Find some press coverage here.
Mechanical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University is now accepting applications for the Ph.D. and M.S.E. graduate programs. Please visit this page for more information.
