Reaction diffusion problems in mechanics

For those interested in this topic, we are organizing a minisymposium at the European Solid Mechanics Conference (sponsored by EUROMECH) in Bologna, in 2018, see session 9.2:

Some examples are:

Reaction diffusion and Brinkman flow to model chemical reactions and the motion of a contaminated viscous fluid:

Johnson-Holmquist model in Abaqus

Hello,

 

I am trying to model SiC as a ceramic material using the Johnson-Holmquist model. 

As in Abaqus this material model is not available using GUI I have to specify in the input file as shown in example 2.1.18 High velocity impact of ceramic target. 

In this example silicon carbide material has been used with following parameters

rho0 = 3.215e-9

G = 193000.

A = 0.96

N = 0.65

B = 0.35

M = 1.0

C = 0.009

edot0 = 1.0

T = 750

sigIMax = 12200

sigFMax = 1300

HEL = 11700

Failure of brittle materials using simple experiments- Part 2

Here is my second video, where I tried to explain the concepts of stress state, principal stresses, Mohr circle and failure theories in layman's language and associated these concepts to explain the failure of a brittle material. This is an educational outreach initiative mainly targeted at the undergraduates (mechanical/civil/aerospace and materials engineering) studying mechanics and also other me

Instabilities in confined elastic layers under tension: Fringe, fingering and cavitation

Under tension, confined elastic layers can exhibit various modes of mechanical instabilities, including cavitation, fingering and fringe instabilities. While the cavitation has been extensively studied, the fingering and fringe instabilities have not been well understood, and the relations and interactions of these instabilities have not been explored yet. In this paper, we systematically study the formation, transition, interaction and co-existence of mechanical instabilities in confined elastic layers under tension.

Crack propagation simulations

Hi all,

Apologize if a similar thread was discussed elsewhere. I wanted to know as to currently, what is the

best method to simulate large geometries with cracks as in 3 or 4 point bending test and get factors like CTOD

etc. from such simulation in a physical manner.

I am also interested in crack propagation. As I understand FE requires a prior knowledge of the crack propagation.

What are the disadvantages of XFEM in terms of accuracy? Is there any review on discussing various methods including

Snaking elastic rods

How can an elastic rod model snake motion?

An elastic rod constrained in a perfectly smooth and rigid channel can move through a release of elastic energy and the development of a configurational force.
