Ken Kamrin is the recipient of the 2014 Eshelby Mechanics Award for Young Faculty


It gives me great pleasure to announce the outcome of the 2014 competition for the Eshelby Mechanics Award for Young Faculty. This award is given annually to rapidly emerging junior faculty who exemplify the creative use and development of mechanics. The intent of the award is to promote the field of mechanics, especially among young researchers. The selection committee consisted of: K. Ravi-chandar (UT Austin), Huajian Gao (Brown University), Kaushik Bhattacharya (Caltech), Roger Fosdick (Minnesota University), and Yonggang Huang (Northwestern University).

Discussion of fracture paper #10 - Searching for the length scale of stress corrosion

According to the Swedish Plant Inspectorate the major part of all reported fracture related failures in Sweden are due to stress corrosion. I guess it is more or less a reality everywhere. The association with accidents is probably because it comes without warning and usually at surprisingly low loads. Just a mm sized spot of decomposing grease is enough to create a locally extremely acid environment. In an otherwise friendly environment this often not even considered as a possibility by the designer.

The paper for this discussion is:

Design and Optimization of Axial, Mixed-flow and Radial Turbines for Turbochargers Webinar

The turbocharger efficiency has a direct effect on the fuel efficiency of the engine. However in many turbocharger turbine applications it is becoming increasingly difficult to improve the turbine efficiency with conventional design methods.

Extract Consistent Mass Matrix for Solid Element - ABAQUS

I need to extract the consistent mass matrix of a solid element, the thing is every time I use *MATRIX GENNERATE  it gave me the lumped mass matrix which is a reduced version of the consistent mass matrix. However, if I use a beam element, I just need to print out next to *Beam Section, Lumped = NO to give me the consistent mass matrix but only this option is applicable for beam element which will not be helpful model cause I need a solid element.

Question about calling subroutine to get strain and stress

I am writing a subroutine DFLUX, the FLUX(1) is dependent on strain and stress. But I don't know how to get the strain and stress. I use SPRINC in the code but it seems to be wrong.

The equation for the problem is

Postdoctoral position on: Identification of elastic microstructures from full-field measurements - CNRS & Aix-Marseille University France

A one-year postdoctoral position is available at the Laboratory of Mechanics & Acoustics, CNRS & Aix-Marseille University, France.

The project focuses on image-based identification problems for physical quantities of interest in solid mechanics within the framework of optical measurement methods for complex manufactured materials. The guideline objective is to develop an identification framework for multiscale, heterogeneous and anisotropic media.

More information can be found in the attachment.

Application deadline: February 28th, 2015.

Multiscale modelling of load transfer in grephene laminates

Hi everyone,

                     First  little bit of background over my model.

My model is 3d,deformable solid extrude and consist of grephe flakes  each flakes depth is 0.33 nm and length we can input,We can input the total   box size in nm of layers in that box...and the size of flakes...and the layers are generated automatically with no pattern.And Both side are supported with support.And one side is fixed and another is provided with displacement load.The element is 4 node linear terahedron.



Dear ALL,

Does anyone here has an experience carry out  FE analysis for a part[bracket] which was deformed plastically during cyclic loading test.

I'm now working to resolve this issue when a bracket was fail to withstand the constant loading of 500N during cyclic test. It was reported fail at ~3800 cycles which was less than target.

How to model random dispersion of MWCNTs in epoxy resin

Dear All,

I want to start some research on the Multi walled Carbon nano - tubes/ Epoxy resin.

In the begining I need to model a random dispersion of MWCNTs in epoxy resin in  the ABAQUS.


Can any help me in this problem.


Thank you in advance.

want to start some research on the Carbon nano - tubes. In the begining I need to model a CNT in the ABAQUS.

Concrete block under thermal load

Dear all,

I am new to abaqus and trying to analyze the thermal analysis on a concrete block of size 0.15 x 0.15 x 0.15.

The surface heat flux of magnitude 100 that I am giving is only from one side and NOT having any boundary conditions.

If I choose steady state condition then I get an error as "Time increment required is less than the minimum specified".

Also I cannot define time period. I want the nodal temperature of concrete subjected to thermal load from one side for 24 hours of heating at 100oC.

Please help!
