Optimization of a pump-turbine runner

Pumped hydro energy storage (PHES) is currently the only proven large-scale (>100 MW) energy storage technology. The benefits of PHES on electrical system operations are well documented in textbooks and journals. The flexible generation of PHES can provide upregulation and downregulation in power

A review of predictive nonlinear theories for multiscale modeling of heterogeneous materials

Since the beginning of the industrial age, material performance and design have been in the midst of innovation of many disruptive technologies. Today’s electronics, space, medical, transportation, and other industries are enriched by development, design and deployment of composite, heterogeneous and multifunctional materials. As a result, materials innovation is now considerably outpaced by other aspects from component design to product cycle. In this article, we review predictive nonlinear theories for multiscale modeling of heterogeneous materials.

Point mass problem with abaqus


I try to insert a concentrated mass into a model and i try to distribute it with a distribuiting coupling. The problem is that the analysis don't see the concentrated mass. Can somebody tell me how insert a *mass in abaqus using hypermesh as preprocessor?


functionally graded material

Hi everybody;

In an ansys 3D-planner model, Is it possible to vary the material properties (E) as a function of coordinates, E=f(x,y,z)? one way is to vary material properties for every element But in this condition material properties in boundry of elements is discontinuous. Is it possible to vary material properties as a function tool in ansys then map it on table similar loads and boundry condition?

please help me.

To develop and optimize stent-graft


Hi friends;

I am doing modal analysis for functionally graded material in APDL ANSYS. equation of material properties has three independent variables,(x,y,z), and element type is solid186. I used from function tool for loading equation then saved it as table, hereinafter I used from TB 



hh is table name.

warning message was created: "the function or table specification hh for material number 0 is currently allowed for joint element material specification. The TB command is ignored.

REMINDER: (Due Dec 5th) Call for Nominations for the Eshelby Mechanics Award for Young Faculty

It is my pleasure to solicit nominations for the "Eshelby Mechanics Award for Young Faculty". This award, launched in 2012, 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. While interdisciplinary work that bridges mechanics with physics, chemistry, biology and other disciplines is encouraged, the ideal awardee will demonstrate clear inspiration from mechanics in his/her research.

Quantitative phase-field crystal modeling of solid-liquid interfaces for FCC metals

This work deals with the quantification and application of the modified two-mode phase-field crystal model (M2PFC; Asadi and Asle Zaeem, 2015) for face-centered cubic (FCC) metals at their melting point. The connection of M2PFC model to the classical density functional theory is explained in this article. M2PFC model in its dimensionless form contains three parameters (two independent and one dependent) which are determined using an iterative procedure based on the molecular dynamics and experimental data.
