8th International Congress of Croatian Society of Mechanics, Last call for Papers - Opatija, Croatia, 29 Sept.-2. Oct. 2015

For the 8th time, Croatian Society of Mechanics is organizing its international congress, which will be this time held in Opatija, Croatia, from 29 September to 2 October 2015. International Congress of the Croatian Society of Mechanics is triennial meeting established for the mutual exchange of scientific and technical information in the domain of Mechanics with a focus not only to the Central Europe but also beyond this region.

Mechanical Engineering Technology: Clean Energy And Linear Motion Mechanism

You can see two sliders. I apply force using one slider to another slider. Best part is one slider move little bit

and helps second slider

to slide 6 times length at 70 % force.

Structural dynamics book recommendation

Learnt structure dynamics many many years ago. Forget most of them. Need to do FEM dynamic analysis. 

Can anyone suggest a really good classic book that I can seft-learn. I want to know the fundamentals behind the analysis.


Finding Nx Ny and Nxy in ABAQUS

I am performing a thermal stress analysis of composites. I need to verfiy the results with an existing paper. The variation of the thermal force resultants, Nx, Ny, and Nxy, of the plate along the y direction . I would like to know how to obtain the same with abaqus.

Discussion of fracture paper #9 - Crack tip modelling

Dear Reader, 

I recently took over as the ESIS blog editor. Being the second in this baton relay, I will do my best to live up to the good reader expectations that has been established by my precursor, who is also one of the instigators of the blog, Wolfgang Brock. 

Request for abstracts to: PACAM-XV mini-symposium on "The Current and Future Role of Mechanics in Atomistic Science"

As part of the Pan-American Congress of Applied Mechanics (PACAM) being held in UIUC (May 18-21, 2015) by Oscar Lopez-Pamies and Martin Idiart, I am organizing a session on "The Current and Future Role of Mechanics in Atomistic Science".

Yield stress fluid flows

A Virtual Special Issue of the Journal of Non-Newtonian Fluid Mechanics devoted to yield stress fluid flows has just been released. With this first Virtual Special Issue of the journal we inaugurate a practice, which we plan to make regular, of highlighting developments on a particular subject of relevance in order to guide and encourage research in the field.

Updated notes on nonlinear viscosity

I have just updated my notes on nonlinear viscosity.  The notes are written for a course on plasticity.  When I update the notes, I will post a link on my twitter account:

question about crack growth path

 I am tring to get a path of the crack growth ,but it seems there is no one focusing on it , and  no rule about it on book.

below is my simulation in abaqus

The Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (MAE, at the Jacobs School of Engineering (JSOE) at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant/Associate/Full Professor rank with research focus on experimental and/or computational mechanics of advanced materials under extreme conditions.

What is exactly the 'pressure' of a solid in thermodynamics?

Most literatures on thermodynamics are written or started with the language of 'ideal gas'.

This confuses me a lot when I switch to consider solids. For example, the enthalpy of a system
is defined as H = U + P*V, where P is the pressure of the 'system'. This definition is found to be convenient
when dealing with gas. But in terms of solids, I really doubt if the 'pressure' is meaningful. The volume makes
sense but its relation with energy should be expressed in another way when we consider for example cold-

creating a zero-thickness layer using ABAQUS 6.13

i have concrete slab and cfrp sheet i want to strength that slab with cfrp sheet so i try to model the epoxy layer as a cohesive layer between them the issue is when creating the orphan meshing which can be done by mesheing all instances as a normal mesh then selecting the slab and cfrp and go to mesh/creat mesh part after that go to mesh/edit and then selecting mesh/offset(creat solid layers) and now abaqus requires to select the element faces from which the offset will be generated so i selected the cfrp surafce that must be sticked to the slab by epoxy and then i create the set and assig

The aim of the workshop is to gather experts from all over the world to update advances in computational methods in vibration and acoustics and to foster an environment conducive to exchanging ideas and information. The workshop will provide a common platform to bring together researchers, engineers, scientists, scholars and students to exchange and share their new ideas in broader domain of vibration and acoustics and discuss the practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted.
