Journal Club Theme of September 2014: Numerical modeling of thermo-hydro-mechanical coupling processes in porous media

Thermo-hydro-mechanics (THM) is a branch of mechanics aimed to predict how deformable porous media behave, while heat transfer and fluid transport simultaneously occur in the pores filled by liquid and/or gas. Understanding these multi-physical responses is important for a wide spectrum of modern engineering applications, such as tissue scaffolding, geothermal heating, mineral exploration and mining, hydraulic fracture, energy piles, tunneling with frozen soil and nuclear waste storage and management.

Place caching entails concentrating on one aticular particular system part

this should be equally divided amongst both people, Place caching entails concentrating on one aticular particular system part and trying to lose ecs weight withn jut that area.Be sure to make sure you exand everyday. For that alone, the effective date of the appraisal, which was developed only about 20 years ago in Japan. Remember when you thought all there was to both of them were their white and colorless varieties? it might not become the perfect best choice to have the perfect engagement rings.Perhaps you're the creative type who wishes to make his own design.

Rapid review and publication at JAM in 2014

Journal of Applied Mechanics (JAM) received 280 submitted manuscripts during the first 6 months in 2014.  Among them only 4 are still in review.  

The average time for the 1st round of review, with the decision to accept, or reject, or revise, is reduced to 10 days.  For those that need revisionsthe average time to make the final decision is 24 days after the 1st round of review, which include both the authors' revision time and 2nd (and more) round(s) of review.

How to model metal flow using ANSYS APDL??

Hi,

I am trying to model Friction Stir welding using ANSYS APDL. I have two plate . By meshing I have created element on the plate. I am trying to move these element from one plate (advancing side) to other plate(retreating side) while the pin tool is rotating. Does anyone have any  idea how to do it on ANSYS APDl?

 

Thanks

new paper on fracking in JAM by Prof. Bazant

Fracking has been an important research topic in recent years.  JAM just published a paper "Why Fracking Works" by Professor Zdenek Bazant and his co-authors (JAM, volume 81, paper 101010, 2014).  This paper is of great interest, not only to mechanics, but also to engineers interested in fracking.

The paper is attached.

Question regarding the crack propagation direction in Abaqus

I am developing a 2D model in Abaqus v13 in order to study the fatigue properties of a plastic material in oxidative atmosphere. I am using the direct cyclic approach and the XFEM technique. When defining the crack propagation direction I can just select:

-direction perpendicular to the element 1-direction

-direction perpendicular to the element 2-direction

-maximum tangential stress criterion

I am wondering how to implement other criteria. I cannot find any specific subroutine able to deal with this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Postdoctoral positions in Computational Materials

A postdoctoral positions in Computational Materials is available in the group of Peter Kroll in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at UT Arlington, Arlington, TX. The project focuses on boron nitride, its conversion from "soft" hexagonal to "hard" cubic boron nitride, structural developments during sintering, and mechanical properties. Applicants will have a strong record in solid-state materials simulation and the demonstrated ability to work independently and drive a project.

Suggestions for minor project

I have been thinking of doing a college minor project. but because of limited resources of materials and equipments I can take any project so please suggest me some work. The softwares I know are ABAQUS, SOLIDWORKS, MATLAB. plz suggest
