Title: "Fatigue damage in titanium alloy. Experimental Characterisation and Modelling."
A post-doctoral position (18 month) is available in CIRIMAT Toulouse, in a collaborative framework with SAFRAN Nacelles. This position is related to a PhD study conducted in CIRIMAT on the evolution of microstructure and mechanical behaviour of a titanium alloy after ageing at high temperature under air.
The project for this post doctoral position aims to better understand and predict fatigue damage after ageing. Damage mechanisms in this Ti alloy will be first studied through a literature survey and by the analysis of fatigue tests results already performed in the laboratory (analysis of fatigue curves, characterisation of ruptured specimens, complementary fatigue tests is necessary)and in the industrial partner. A predictive numerical model for the evolution of fatigue damage depending on ageing conditions will then be developed. This model, based on observed mechanisms, will be calibrated using experimental available in Safran data bases.

We are pleased to announce you that the Son et Lumière 2019: Wave Interactions at the Nanoscale thematic school will be held in Les Houches from March 11 to 22, 2019.
This event will be the seventh edition of the Son et Lumière International School dedicated to nanophononics, i.e. the study ‒ most often by optical methods, hence the name Son et Lumière (Sound and Light) given to the series of schools ‒ of phonons in nanoscale or nanostructured systems. The two main goals of the school are to provide a detailed overview of this area of research for PhD students and young researchers beginning in this field, and to promote interactions between the different communities (optics, nanoacoustics, nanothermics, optomechanics, ...) that contribute to its development.
The deadline for submitting applications to attend the school is 15 December 2018. More information on the school is available at https://sel2019.sciencesconf.org/ (or, if necessary, by sending an email to email@example.com).
Covered themes :
1) Introduction to nanophononics, picosecond acoustics
2) Vibrational properties of nano-objects and nanostructures
3) Applications of phonons for industry,bioimaging and sensing
4) Emerging spectroscopies involving non-visible waves (X-rays, THz)
5) Nanoscale thermal transport

This symposium covers all aspects of tribology, mechanical properties, and adhesion of coatings and engineered surfaces. The scopesincludes both experimental investigations and modelling of static (e.g., indentation and adhesion) and dynamic (e.g., oscillating, scratching, sliding and rolling) contacts, and contact/fracture mechanics from atomistic to macroscopic length scales. They welcome contributions that improve scientific and mechanistic understanding of tribo-mechanical responses, characterization and performance of engineered surfaces and coatings, processing-structure-property-performance relationships, design of coatings for specific applications, and size effects. Additional emphasis is given to multifunctional (hard and lubricious) and nanocomposite coatings for extreme environments, nanostructured coatings, diamond and diamond-like carbon, and coatings for advanced aerospace, automotive, and machining applications, along with advances in instrumentation and measurement techniques.
You are welcome to submit a contribution in one of the three sessions:
E1. Friction, Wear, Lubrication Effects, and Modeling
E2. Mechanical Properties and Adhesion
E3. Tribology of Coatings for Automotive and Aerospace Applications
Please submit your abstract until October 1, 2018.
More information about the symposium and the information about the abstract submission process can be found at: http://www2.avs.org/conferences/ICMCTF/2019/symposium_e.htm
The 2018 Mecano School registration is opened! It will close on october 15th, or when the number of participants reaches 65. So don’t wait.
Registration is directly made on the IESC server: http://www.iesc.univ-corse.fr/fr/participation/inscriptions-en-ligne/acces-enregistrement/idecole4/959/
You will first have to obtain a login and password before being asked to fill the registration form. Be patient, the server is slow.
Looking forward to see you in Cargèse.
This regular symposium was created three years ago in order to expand the scope of the International Conference on Metallurgical Coatings and Thin Films (ICMCTF) to micromechanical and small-scale characterization method, and has enjoyed lasting popularity ever since. The symposium is widely opened to contributions from the fields of nanoindentation, FIB-based techniques, TEM, X-Ray methods, Atom Probe Tomography, testing in non-ambient conditions…
