Concrete stress-strain curve

The concrete stress-strain curve corresponds to the compression case with negative values plotted on positive axis. If one needs to plot the tensile curve for this concrete material this will be almost similar with {0.1*compression} stresses with positive values. Furthermore if one needs to plot on the same axis the tensile steel and concrete stresses for a composite mixture he needs to consider this last case. Fortunately the tensile and compression steel stresses are quite similar with opposite values.

Experimental Study of Natural Convection from an Array of Square Fins

In this research, we experimentally investigate natural convection heat transfer of three finned-tube exchangers with an array of square fins and a fin spacing of 5, 9, and 14 mm. The exchangers are in a 5.8m x 4m x 3m control room where temperature and humidity are automatically controlled with heating, cooling, humidifying, and dehumidifying equipment. We changed the surface temperature of the center tube by varying the input power of the heating element from 8.4 to 56.7 Watts.

Understanding Homogeneous Nucleation in Solidification of Aluminum by Molecular Dynamics Simulations (OPEN ACCESS)

Homogeneous nucleation from aluminum (Al) melt was investigated by million-atom molecular dynamics (MD) simulations utilizing the second nearest neighbor modified embedded atom method (MEAM) potentials. The natural spontaneous homogenous nucleation from the Al melt was produced without any influence of pressure, free surface effects and impurities. Initially isothermal crystal nucleation from undercooled melt was studied at different constant temperatures, and later superheated Al melt was quenched with different cooling rates.

Flexoelectricity in Bones: A nanophenomenon that triggers the bone-repair process

Bones generate electricity under pressure, and this electromechanical behavior is thought to be essential for bone's self-repair and remodeling properties. The origin of this response is attributed to the piezoelectricity of collagen, which is the main structural protein of bones. In theory, however, any material can also generate voltages in response to strain gradients, thanks to the property known as flexoelectricity.

Material Testing in High and Low Temperatures

High or low temperature testing is made feasible by adding an environmental chamber to a universal testing machine (UTM). Environmental chambers come with their own temperature controller and, depending on the system’s compatibility, the temperature settings and recordings may be controlled with the UTM’s controller or software.
