How can I resolve the zero flux problem in ABAQUS?Does it mean that I have to change General Solution controls in step module?

 keep getting the zero flux errors in my model.

“There is zero VOL. FLUX everywhere in the model based on the default criterion. please check the value of the average VOL. FLUX during the current iteration to verify that the VOL. FLUX is small enough to be treated as zero. if not, please use the solution controls to reset the criterion for zero VOL. FLUX.”

Does it mean that I have to change General Solution controls in soil step module?

I guess by flux it means pore pressure in my model.

Looking for a Postdoctoral Position

Looking for postdoctoral position. My current postdoc contract at National University of Singapore will be terminated in the end of August, 2016. I have quite good experience in the following areas during my PhD and current postdoc career.

Areas: Dielectric elastomer, Smart Polymer, Energy harvesting using EAPs, Soft Actuation, Hydrogels/conducting polymers, Polymer nanocomposites, Dielectric/Piezoelectric materials.

 

Spontaneous Wettability Patterning via Creasing Instability

Surfaces with patterned wettability contrast are important in industrial applications such as heat transfer, water collection, and particle separation. Traditional methods of fabricating such surfaces rely on microfabrication technologies, which are only applicable to certain substrates and are difficult to scale up and implement on curved surfaces. By taking advantage of a mechanical instability on a polyurethane elastomer film, we show that wettability patterns on both flat and curved surfaces can be generated spontaneously via a simple dip coating process.

An analytical benchmark for MD codes: testing and correcting LAMMPS

In the attached paper, recently appeared on Computer Physics Communications, we have proposed an analytical benchmark and a simple consistent Mathematica program for graphene and carbon nanotubes, that may serve to test any molecular dynamics code implemented with REBO potentials. By exploiting the benchmark, we checked results produced by LAMMPS (Large-scale Atomic/Molecular Massively Parallel Simulator) when adopting the second generation Brenner potential, we made evident that this code in its current implementation produces results which are offset from those of the benchmark by a significant amount, and provided evidence of the reason.

introducing constant tempreture in a mass diffusion step

hello ,

I want to introduce a  constant temperature  in a model of masse. Diffusion model must change of pace with the changes of the tempreture introduced.

I introduced the temperature under predifined field but it did not work.

How can I introduice tempreture to the model ?

thank you

Effects of Nanoporosity on the Mechanical Properties and Applications of Aerogels in Composite Structures

Newly published book chapter - http://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-3-319-31662-8_4 Aerogels are ultralight solids with nanoporous structure and are one of the world’s lightest materials available in the market. It is a dry gel, principally made up of 99.8 % of air and weighing just around three times that of air. The first aerogels were realized in 1931, when Kistler (J Phys Chem 36:52–64, 1932) attempted to remove liquid from a wet gel.
