Mohr Coulomb plasticity model

Hello everyone,


I am trying to implement a Mohr Coulomb plasticity model(no hardening at the moment) for the plane strain case. However, the results are not making so much sense.

I was wondering if any of you have tried to code this material model successfully before, or if you could provide me with some algorithm or reference which you know works properly.


Thank you.

Dynamic creation and evolution of gradient-nano-grained structures in single-crystal metallic microcubes

In an article published today in Science, we have demonstrated the creation of an extreme gradient-nano-grained (GNG) structure in single-crystal microcubes through high-velocity impact. We use the defect-free single-crystal silver microcubes, synthesized using a seed-growth process, as the model system, and fire them at supersonic velocities onto a rigid target to create the GNG structure.

Assistant or untenured Associate Professor - Stanford University

The Department of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University ( invites applications for a tenure-track faculty appointment at the junior level (Assistant or untenured Associate Professor) in the broadly defined field of electrical and computer engineering. The department is especially interested in candidates in robotics and autonomous systems, hardware systems, and embedded systems. Priority, however, will be given to the overall originality and promise of the candidate’s work over any specific area of specialization.
