Statistical Mechanics at Molecular/Meso Scales

LNM, Institute of Mechanics, Chinese Academy of Sciences

Graduate Positions:

We have openings for new M.S. and Ph.D. students to conduct thesis research in the areas of solid mechanics. Specific projects include

· Statistical meso damage mechanics of heterogeneous brittle media

· Multi-scale computational methods and modeling

· Microscopic mechanics of micro- and nano-materials and structures

For more information, please contact the professors directly.

Yi-Long Bai

Professor, Group Leader

Scientist of Solid Mechanics. Elected as Member (Academician) of Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1991. He was elected as a member of the European Academy of Sciences in 2003. He was the chairman of academic committee of the Institute of mechanics, CAS, the director of National key Laboratory for Non-linear Mechanics, CAS, the president of Chinese Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics and the director of the Department of Mathematics and Physics, the National Natural Science Foundation of China. He has won many prizes such as the second prize of National Natural Science Award, Science & Technology Progress Award of He-Liang-He-Li Fund, John Rinehart Award, Tan Kah Kee Science Awards 2010, etc.


About The Group

Deformation, damage and failue of solid strucutures are related to coupling of mechanics and physics at different scales which requires new characterizing and modeling methods. Based on traditional and statistical mechanics, we are developing experimental technologies, multi-scale simulation methods and theories in order to investigate typical mechanical problems crossing molecular and meso scales.
