Constitutive/Failure Models
at ORAU Workforce Solutions

Date Posted: 12/23/2018

Opportunity Description

Constitutive/Failure Models for High Strain Rate Loading Conditions Research focuses on: developing material models to describe the impact behavior of metals, ceramics, and polymer composites. conducting in-depth metallographical studies to determine the underlying deformation and failure mechanisms in advanced materials as a result of impact loading conditions. proposing and developing physically based constitutive/damage equations. developing appropriate numerical schemes to solve the governing equations and implementing the scheme in a general purpose shock-wave dynamics-based finite element computer code. proposing quasi-static, high strain rate, and shock-propagation experiments to determine the material model parameters. validating the applicability of the developed models in impact application problems.

About Us

Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) administers Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) research participation programs for civilians such as:

The U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Research Associateship Program (RAP) allow Postdoctoral Fellows, Journeyman Fellows (undergraduate and graduates students and recent graduates), Senior Researchers, and Summer Faculty engage in research initiatives of their own choice, that are compatible with the interests of the government and will potentially contribute to the general effort of the ARL. Scientists and engineers at ARL help shape and execute the Army's program for meeting the challenge of developing technologies that will support Army forces in meeting future operational needs.

Research opportunities include, but are not limited to the following disciplines: Aerospace Engineering, Anthropology, Archeology, Biology, Biochemistry, Biological Engineering, Biomechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Health Risk Assessment, Environmental Science, Entomology, Epidemiology, Ergonomics, Geology, Health Education Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, Mathematics, Nanotechnology, Photonics, Physics, Public Health Economics, Public Health Policy, and more.
