Molecular dynamics simulations of mechanical behavior in nanoscale ceramic –metallic multilayer composites

The mechanical behavior of nanoscale ceramic–metallic (NbC/Nb) multilayer composites with different thickness ratios is investigated using molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. Based on the obtained stress–strain behavior and its dependence on temperature, strain rate, and loading path,the flow stress for the onset of plasticity is identified and modeled based on the nucleation theory,and the in-plane yield loci for different layer thicknesses are constructed. The results are used to establish the plastic flow potential for developing a continuum viscoplastic constitutive model for

A breakthrough in Guided Wave – Excitation of shear-horizontal (SH) wave is not a problem any longer

Excitation of non-dispersive shear-horizontal (SH) waves in plates is always a challenge. Recently, we successfully excited single-mode SH0 wave in plates using a face-shear (d24) mode piezoelectric transducer. Meanwhile, the d24 mode transducer can selectively receive SH0 wave and filter Lamb waves. This work was published as a Letter in the IOP journal Smart Materials and Structures (

A perspective on the statistical mechanics of 2D materials

2D materials are fascinating for numerous reasons. Their geometrical and mechanical characteristics along with other associated physical properties have opened up fascinating new application avenues ranging from electronics, energy harvesting, biological systems among others. Due to the 2D nature of these materials, they are known for their unusual flexibility and the ability to sustain large curvature deformations. Further, they undergo noticeable thermal fluctuations at room temperature.

Time steps

Hi Dears

I wrote a numerical solution code for 1D diffusion using Isogeometric and alfa method. I have a problem with time steps because when I increase the time steps for a specified length for example 0-0.1 the solution increase too. For example in below fig. blue, red and green lines are for 50, 80 and 100 step time respectively.


Can anybody help me with this problem??

Webinar: Design of High Efficiency Compressors with Low GWP Refrigerants

Design of High-Efficiency Compressors with Low GWP Refrigerants

Refrigerants are used in many applications such as stationary and mobile air conditioning and refrigeration systems. A commonly used refrigerant such as R134a has a low Ozone Depleting Potential (ODP) but relatively high Global Warming Potential (GWP) of 1400. In recent years there has been substantial growth in refrigerant used for cooling applications.
