Matlab codes for the three numerical examples in the paper

Fri, 2018-09-21 22:10

In reply to Deriving a lattice model for neo-Hookean solids from finite element methods

The Matab codes for the three numerical examples in the manuscript can be downloaded from the following link

The codes are modified from the FEM codes in Prof. Allan Bower's online text book

The current codes can be used to learn the implementation of lattice models and also provide a short cut for students to learn nonlinear finite element simulations.

PhD position in modeling of solidification in Ni-base superalloy

In reply to PhD position in modeling of solidification in Ni-base superalloys at the University of Nevada, Reno

One Ph.D. opening is available in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at University of Nevada Reno for a student wishing to start in spring 2019. The research group performs advanced theoretical and computational research in the areas of microstructural evolution, phase field method development, crystal plasticity, and computational methods for materials science and mechanics. The ideal applicant should have MSc in mechanical engineering, materials science and engineering or solid-state chemistry or similar, with some experience via courses and/or research, in solidification, microstructure science, elasticity, defects in crystalline solids, numerical methods and advanced programming languages, e.g., C/C++ or Fortran or both. For inquiry please send an email to Dr Leslie T. Mushongera on

In reply to increments

Hello sir,


Thank you for the comment.

As I can see I have already set the increments to 10000.

I didn't understand what do you mean by "set the parameter INC to command STEP", if you don't mind, can you elaborate that.?


Thanks & Regards,

Jaswanth Kumar.

Abaqus Standard has by default an upper limit of 100 increments per step.

Set the parameter INC to the command STEP.

Good luck

In reply to There is another benefit,

Hi Emilio, this is an important point and I laud you for your own generosity. After some initial stage, once the key papers are out, I believe it to be a healthy practice to make the codes available publically. My group is in the process of doing the same with some of our own codes---once they are cleaned up. I see this happening more or more in the computational materials science community and several of our mechanicians have done this in the past. A good recent example is the finite element based DFT code released by one of our own mechanicians: Vikram Gavini.

In reply to Self-financed or publicly

Hi Ajit,

My research endeavours are primarily financed by public funding agencies but I have also conducted research for private companies. I can see the struggle of sharing all the tools in the context of an R&D contract with a company; in my case, I typically develop the tools as part of a publicly funded fundamental project and these tools (that have been shared) are then used in the more applied industry-backed projects (frequently, by a student that could end up working for the company).

In reply to Who was PhD advisor of Prager?

Earlier today, I was giving a lecture on frontier research in mechanics to the sophomore at Zhejiang University. During the lecture, I spent several minutes talking about our academic ancestors, from Klein to Gauss and finally to Friedrich Leibniz. Unfortunately, I just realized I mistakenly recognized Friedrich Leibniz as Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz who 'invented' calculus independently of Newton. Actually, Friedrich Leibniz was the father of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz. The lesson I learned is that I need to be very careful otherwise I may identify wrong ancestors.

For a while, I was a little bit concerned about if Wilhelm Schlink really was Prager's advisor since it is hard to find information (and photo) about Wilhelm Schlink online in English. But I recently ran into a Wikipedia page written in German, saying Wilhelm Schlink moved to TU Darmstadt in 1921 and served as a professor of mechanics there until his retirement in 1948/1949. The information is consistent with the fact that Prager obtained his Dr.-Ing. at TU Darmstadt in 1926. I think my puzzle is resolved.
