Problem with solving a nonlinear boundary value problem in Maple software

The problem is related to swelling induced bifurcation in thermally activated hydrogels. At a special temperature near the phase transition, where the variation is relatively great, Maple stops calculating with initial Newton iteration convergence error. How can I solve the problem?

Your response will be greatly appreciated

Using VUSDFLD to establish soil with shear strength increasing with depth

I want to establish soil model with shear strength increasing linearly with depth. First, I used the method of temperature_based material with the initial temperature field predefined. This method can work, however, the shear strength was always determined by the depth. The strength re-distribution due to soil deformation could not be considered. So I turned to the method of using VUSDFLD. But I don't really know how to do it. Is this method capable of dealing with the problem which occurred in the method of temperature_based material? Thanks a lot. Any help will be appreciated

reflection and transmission coefficients in long elastic bars

 

Dear iMechanica Community,

I'd like to ask for advice on modelling reflection and transmission coefficients when two bars with different cross-sectional areas contact each other and are exposed to pulse loading.

I have modelled this process in Abaqus/Explicit as a two-dimensional simulation. The investigation was conveniently done as a parametric study, defining the lateral dimension as parameter. Both bars are slim (length 2 m, diameter 2 cm) and elastic.

Exact load to get a right mechanical properties

Hi everyone,

I am working on a new material, and I am trying to find the exact load ( right pressure load) that I need to apply on the tope surface of the material with fixed boundary conditions in the bottom to find the right mechanical properties like ( modules of elasticity, reduced modules, hardness and toughn). I'm doing the simulation on Abaqus first and compare them with experiments in my laboratory. So, how can I measure the right load that  should apply it? 

 

Thanks,

Hibbitt Postdoc Fellowship in Mechanics of Solids at Brown

Brown Engineering is recruiting exceptionally talented researchers who have received their Ph.D. degree in engineering, or an engineering-related discipline, after July 2015, or who expect to do so by July 2017, and who aspire to create independent research and pursue careers as leaders of innovation. 

While we will consider applications in all areas of our engineering programs, preference will be given for the 17-18 academic year in the fields of fluids and thermal sciences, and mechanics of solids.
