Barenblatt died, age 90

Grigory Isaakovich Barenblatt passed away on 21 June 2018 in Moscow.  He pioneered the cohesive-zone model of fracture, and made lasting contributions to the mechanics of solids and fluids.  We are deeply sorry for the passing of a giant.

TMS 2019: Thermo-mechanical Response of Materials Investigated through Novel in-situ Experiments and Modeling

The focus of this symposium is to discuss current research and key developments in theory, computational and experimental methods to study and predict the thermo-mechanical properties of materials in application-orientated environments. These environments may include, but are not limited to high temperature, cryogenic temperature, electrical and magnetic field, gas, radiation, chemical, pressure extremes, and humidity.

Unified Mechanics Theory

I thought mechanics community would be interested in my presentation on Unified Mechanics Theory, where I modify Newton's Equations in a succint form to incorporate Thermodynamics into Newtons Laws, which presently they don't have. [is there any proof, ?Yes the new form of the Newton's Laws have been proven experimentally since 1997 and mathematically in 2016}

 

Attached presentation was presented at USNCTAM 2018 in Chicago, IL, USA
