Two-phase solid–liquid coexistence of Ni, Cu, and Al by molecular dynamics simulations using the modified embedded-atom method

The two-phase solid–liquid coexisting structures of Ni, Cu, and Al are studied by molecular dynamics (MD) simulations using the second nearest-neighbor (2NN) modified-embedded atom method (MEAM) potential. For this purpose, the existing 2NN-MEAM parameters for Ni and Cu were modified to make them suitable for the MD simulations of the problems related to the two-phase solid–liquid coexistence of these elements.

2nd Workshop: Impact of mechanical and thermal loads on the long term stability of PV modules, 3 February 2015, Hannover

 

After the successful first edition organized by ISFH and held in Hamelin (Germany) in November 2013, ISD hosts the second edition of the workshop entitled “Impact of mechanical and thermal loads on the long term stability of PV modules”. On behalf of the ISD-ISFH consortium, we are pleased to invite you to participate at this event. This is a great opportunity for meeting colleagues active in this area and discussing new ideas and establishing links for future cooperation.

Postdoc position – Modeling dynamic fracture and fragmentation

A Postdoctoral fellowship is available at The Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, U.S.A. in the area of fracture and fragmentation under dynamic loading conditions. The potential candidate should have a Ph.D. in an engineering discipline, a strong background in fracture mechanics and extensive computational modeling experience working with the finite element methods or some other numerical method with application to solid mechanics.

Request history output for propagated crack length in XFEM analysis

My crack has been propagated. Now I want to draw a plot of crack length vs No. of Cycles but I dont see any option in history output where the crack length could be requested. Appreciate anyone can help. thanks in advance

How to prevent non-physical interpenetration of particles

Hi all, 

    I was trying to simulate the mode 2 delamination using End loaded split test using meshfree method (RKPM) by coding in MATLAB.  Traction separation law is implemented.

When upward load(displacement controlled)  is applied at the bottom portion of the bottom lamina, the bottom lamina is penetrating into the first lamina. At the surface where contact is happening, there is no traction transfer happening.

In ABAQUS, we can define a contact surface and interpenetration can be prevented, ensuring traction transfer.

Simpleware Webinars: Intro to Animations Tools and New Physics Modules - February 11th and 18th

(re-arranged from January 14th and 21st)

We're running two webinars in February on the latest additions to our software ScanIP's 3D image processing, visualisation and model generation capabilities. The webinars are ideal for existing users and those wanting to learn more about creating models from 3D images.

Introduction to the new ScanIP Animations Tool on February 11th (8am/5pm GMT)

A Review of Quantitative Phase-Field Crystal Modeling of Solid–Liquid Structures

Phase-field crystal (PFC) is a model with atomistic-scale details acting on diffusive time scales. PFC uses the density field as its order parameter, which takes a constant value in the liquid phase and a periodic function in the solid phase. PFC naturally takes into account elasticity, solid–liquid interface free energy, surface anisotropy, and grain boundary free energy by using this single-order parameter in modeling of coexisting solid–liquid structures.

Effects of geometrical and mechanical properties of fiber and matrix on composite fracture toughness

Composites reinforced by thinner fibers are intensively studied in recent years and expected to have better
mechanical properties. With development of nanotechnology, the diameter of fiber can be as thin as
several nanometers, such as nanofibers and nanotubes. Then, do these thinner fibers definitely result in
composites with better mechanical properties? In this paper, the toughening effect of reinforcing fibers in
composites is investigated based on the three-level failure analysis model. It is found that thinner

Submissions to JAM have almost doubled

The submission to JAM in 2013 was ~42 manuscripts/month.  Probably because of its rapid review process (1st round of review ~ 10 days, and 2nd round of review ~24 days including authors' revision time) and rapid publication (online within 48 hours after acceptance), the monthly submission is nearly doubled now.  For example, the submission in December, 2014 is 78 in a single month.

Real knee motion in CAD , the best if it is in Solidwords

Where I can get for free or buy a knee joint complete anatomy ( including femur, tibia, meniscus, ligament, and cartilage). I need a knee joint with accurate knee motion for flexion-extension, internal and external rotation. It supposed to be real human motion. If possible I need it in CAD, it is the best if I can get in Solidworks assembly motion. Really appreciate the information. Thank in advance
