Multistability and localization in forced cyclic symmetric structures modelled by weakly-coupled Duffing oscillators

Many engineering structures are composed of weakly coupled sectors assembled in a cyclic and ideally symmetric configuration, which can be simplified as forced Duffing oscillators. In this paper, we study the emergence of localized states in the weakly nonlinear regime. We show that multiple spatially localized solutions may exist, and the resulting bifurcation diagram strongly resembles the snaking pattern observed in a variety of fields in physics, such as optics and fluid dynamics.

An explanation of the drag reduction via polymer solute

The remarkable phenomenon of the drag reduction via addition of small amounts of polymer molecules to a Newtonian solvent was observed experimentally long ago. However, the theoretical explanations of this observation are not overwhelming yet. In this note, we present a possible theoretical account of the phenomenon. It is based on the use of the Navier–Stokes model with viscous strength for the solvent and the upper-convected Maxwell model for the polymer solute.

Post-Doctoral Position – Thermal Transport in Crystalline Solids

The Materials Theory Group at the School of Materials Engineering of Purdue University has a post-doctoral opening in the area of physics of thermal transport in crystalline solids. The postdoc will use Boltzmann Transport Equation (BTE) approach to investigate the phonon and electron thermal transport in crystalline solids with lattice defects. A solid state physics background is highly desired for this position but applicants with a strong, closely related theory background from materials science or other engineering disciplines will be considered. The ideal candidate is one who is strongly interested in the fundamental theoretical concepts related to thermal transport and related computational modeling, and must have excellent programming skills in Fortran and/or C++. For inquiry please send an email to Professor Anter El-Azab (aelazab@purdue.edu). The position will remain open until filled. Interested candidates can send a curriculum vita with list of publications, a one-page or less statement of research interests and the names of at least two references, with their email addresses and telephone numbers to the provided email. The Materials Theory Group performs theoretical and computational research in the areas of mesoscale plasticity and dislocation dynamics, radiation effects in materials, microstructure evolution, phase field method development, phonon and electron thermal transport in crystalline solids, and computational methods for materials science and mechanics. The group has over ten graduate students and postdocs, with a wide range of collaborations.
