Journal Club Theme of June 2016: 2D Materials: Current and Future Directions

Two-Dimensional (2D) materials have been widely studied since the discovery of graphene in 2004.  Many of the initial works on the various 2D materials (graphene, MoS2 and other transition metal dichalcogenides, black phosphorus, and others like the monochalcogenides) by mechanicians focused on issues like ideal strength, and appropriate methods to calculate the bending modulus.  Some of these, and other issues, were reviewed by Sulin Zhang in a J-Club from March 2015 (http://imechanica

Negative Poisson's Ratio in Single-Layer Graphene Ribbons

The Poisson's ratio characterizes the resultant strain in the lateral direction for a material under longitudinal deformation.  Though negative Poisson's ratios (NPR) are theoretically possible within continuum elasticity, they are most frequently observed in engineered materials and structures, as they are not intrinsic to many materials.  In this work, we report NPR in single-layer graphene ribbons, which results from the compressive edge stress induced warping of the edges.

Minisymposium on Nano and Biomechanics at 2014 USNCTAM

Dear Mechanics Colleagues:

A pleasant reminder that we invite you to submit an abstract to a minisymposium on "Nano and Bio
Mechanics" for the 2014 USNCTAM, June 15-20, 2014, to be held at
Michigan State University. This minisymposium will focus on the
development and application of
both experimental techniques and computational models and methods to
problems of interest in the fields of nano and bio mechanics. Topics of
interest will include, but are not limited to:

IMECE 2012: Minisymposium on Multiphysics Simulations and Experiments for Solids

Dear Colleagues:

We would like to invite you to submit an abstract for the 2012 ASME
IMECE in Houston, to be held November 9-15, 2012.  Our minisymposium
is on "Multiphysics Simulations and Experiments for Solids", and is the
continuation of a very successful minisymposium held for the past 5 years
that have resulted in more than 40 presentations at the 2009, 2010 and 2011 IMECE conferences.  This year's focus areas
are:

1.Multiphysics modeling, simulation and experiments of electromechanical materials and systems

Nonlocal Instability Analysis of FCC Bulk and (100) Surfaces Under Uniaxial Stretching

The objective of this paper is to examine the instability characteristics of both a bulk FCC crystal  and a (100) surface of an FCC crystal under uniaxial stretching along a <100> direction using an atomistic-based nonlocal instability criterion.  By comparison to benchmark atomistic simulations, we demonstrate that for both the FCC bulk and (100) surface, about 5000-10000 atoms are required in order to obtain an accurate converged value for the instability strain and a converged instability mode.  The instability modes are fundamentally different at the surface as compared to the bul
