Job description

Yuli Chen's picture

A novel self-locked energy absorbing system  Metallic thin-walled round tubes are widely used as energy absorption elements.  However, lateral splash of the round tubes under impact loadings reduces the energy absorption efficiency and may cause secondary damages.  Therefore, it is necessary to assemble and fasten round tubes together by boundary constraints and/or fasteners between tubes, which increases the time and labor cost and affects the mechanical performance


Dear all 

I started a new project recently in abrasive wear by abaqus.

It would be my pleasure , if any one can help me.

HEX meshes with elastic/plastic property in ABAQUS contact analysis

Dear all,

Recently I have been running a simulation in ABAQUS, which is the compression of two hemispheres. The two hemispheres are identical, and I think the simulation results of the contact sufaces of the two hemispheres should be identical too. However, I found when I apply only elastic material property, the result is alright, when I change the material property to elastic-plastic (bi-linear), the result is very wierd (the contact sufaces are not symmetric). All of the model is with HEX mesh, when TET mesh is applied there is no such issues.

On the overall yield function of a hollow sphere

  Motivated mostly by analytical (or formal) considerations, a vast majority of the works dedicated to the study of the overall plastic response of a porous metal assumes that the sound material (or matrix) obeys a quadratic yielding criterion (von Mises or Hill'48). However, most metals of technological interest today feature significant deviations from the quadratic form of yielding. Therefore a realistic modeling of their behavior, while sustaining damage,  requires appropriate consideration of their yielding properties.

Evolutionary crystal structure prediction - Nature

The high-pressure behavior of zinc carbonate ZnCO3 has been investigated using universal structure prediction method together with the density functional theory. In order to explore all possible structures under pressure, separate calculations at high pressure are done here with increasing number of formula units in the unit cell. Two pressures induced phase transitions were considered. The first one occurs at 78 GPa and the second one at 121 GPa.

Bonds, bands and elasticity of smithsonite rock

The objective here is to spread out in detail the various fundamental state properties of smithsonite rock (ZnCO3) for which the most intrinsic quantities remain still unknown. First-principles electronic structure calculations based on the density functional theory with the pseudopotential method were performed using diverse functionals. A number of mechanical quantities were evaluated such as bulk modulus, elastic constants, Young's and shear moduli, and transversal and longitudinal sound velocities (VS and VP).

The theory of thin shells / Viktor V. Novozhilov

Dear friends

I need "the theory of thin shells" by Novozhilov. As I look for it more and more, I find less and less. Can anyone help me to find that on net?


Thanks in advance
