Anomalous bulging behaviors of a dielectric elastomer balloon under internal pressure and electric actuation

When a clamped membrane of elastomer is subject to a lateral pressure, it bulges into a hemispherical balloon. However, for a clamped membrane of dielectric elastomer (DE) under a lateral pressure as well as a voltage through the thickness, it may bulge into a regular hemispherical balloon or an irregular shape. This work focuses on the anomalous bulging behaviors (i.e. the irregular bulging shape) of a DE balloon under electromechanical coupling loading.

orthotropic

hello all.

I work on the plates laminate orthotropic, in the calculation of the constatnte of rigidities I found two matrices of rigidity which are mantionent on the two figures following:

somebody can explain to me which is the matrix right, and thank you by advance.

Experimentally informed micromechanical modelling of cement paste: An approach coupling X-ray computed tomography and statistical nanoindentation

Our group has recently published an article wherein we propose the use of X-ray computed tomography coupled with statistical nanoindentation for simulating the mechanical properties of quasi-brittle materials. The approach is used for simulating tensile properties of hardened cement paste.

The Effects of Intra-membrane Viscosity on Lipid Membrane Morphology: Complete Analytical Solution

We present a linear theory of lipid membranes which accommodates the effects of intra-membrane viscosity into the model of deformations. Within the Monge parameterization, a linearized version of the shape equation describing membrane morphology is derived. Admissible boundary conditions are taken from the existing non-linear model but reformulated and adopted to the present framework. We obtain a complete analytical expression illustrating the deformations of lipid membrane subjected to the influences of intra-membrane viscosity.

Two Fully-funded PhD Positions in Additive Manufacturing

The National Center for Additive Manufacturing Excellence (NCAME) at Auburn University is announcing for two fully-funded PhD positions in the area of structural integrity of additive manufactured (AM) materials/parts. These students will work under direction of Dr. Shamsaei from Mechanical Engineering Department. These opportunities include;
1- One PhD student is expected to work on experimental and analytical mechanics, additive manufacturing, fatigue testing and modeling, failure analysis, microstructural characterization, and fracture mechanics.
2- The second PhD student will implement computational mechanics to investigate structural integrity of AM parts. The candidate for this position should have background on crystal plasticity and finite element analysis. This candidate is also expected to be familiar with a finite element software including writing subroutines.
For international applicants, you need to have your TOEFL and GRE scores ready to report by Oct. 15th. If interested, please send your resume and a cover letter, briefly explaining your relevant experience and publications to Dr Vaziri (mzv0045@auburn.edu).

Famous Morandi Genoa bridge collapses

There has been much discussion after the very sad collapse of a well known bridge in Genoa, designed by a famous bridge engineer Riccardo Morandi, more than 50 years ago.

Sharing data by theory/computation mechanicians

I noted with interest the recent iMechanica blog entry regarding the fact that only a small minority of experimentalists are willing to share raw data. I was somewhat surprised. I instinctively felt that theoreticians and comptutational scientists would have a different attitude.

Opening for two new Ph.D. students in the Computational Mechanics group, The University of Iowa.

The Computational Mechanics group at The University of Iowa, led by Professor S. Rahman, is looking for two new Ph.D. students, who are capable of and interested in performing high-quality research on uncertainty quantification and stochastic design optimization. The research, supported by U.S. National Science Foundation, requires building a solid mathematical foundation, devising efficient numerical algorithms, and developing practical computational tools, all associated with stochastic analysis and design of complex materials and structures.
