SNP 2014 meeting

This 52th meeting of the Society of Natural Philosophy, entitled “Scale Bridging in Mathematical and Mechanical Sciences”, is focused on the formulation, analysis, and simulation of boundary-value and initial-boundary-value problems for partial-differential equations describing the behavior of materials which exhibit complexity and structure on varying length and time scales. Attention is specifically addressed to the mechanics of complex fluids and solids, including nano- and biomaterials.

Reminder: Call for Nominations for the Eshelby Mechanics Award for Young Faculty

It is my pleasure to solicit nominations for the "Eshelby Mechanics Award for Young Faculty". This award, launched in 2012, is given annually to rapidly emerging junior faculty who exemplify the creative use and development of mechanics. The intent of the award is to promote the field of mechanics, especially among young researchers. While interdisciplinary work that bridges mechanics with physics, chemistry, biology and other disciplines is encouraged, the ideal awardee will demonstrate clear inspiration from mechanics in his/her research.

ABAQUS Element Connectivity

Hi, 

I am trying to mesh the hollow sphere attachged using structured BRICK-8 elements. It turns out in order to have a structured mesh, I have to have 2 partitions such that four quadrants be generated.

What I only need from ABAQUS is the element connectivity. I do not need to solve any problem.

Stretchability and compliance of freestanding serpentine-shaped ribbons

High-performance stretchable electronics have to utilize high-quality inorganic electronic materials such as silicon, oxide or nitride dielectrics, and metals. These inorganic materials usually crack or yield at very small intrinsic strains, for example, 1%, whereas bio-integrated electronics are expected to at least match the stretchability of bio-tissues (20%) and deployable structure health monitoring networks are expected to expand from wafer scale (several centimeters) to cover macroscopic structures (several meters).

Mechanics of supercooled liquids

In a pure liquid, molecules touch one another but change neighbors frequently.  External forces cause the liquid to change shape by viscous flow.  Thermal agitation causes  molecules to undergo self-diffusion.  The two phenomena--viscous flow and self-diffusion--often result from a single rate-limiting process:  molecules change neighbors.  This simple picture is amply confirmed by the Stokes-Einstein relation, which links the viscosity and self-diffusivity for many liquids over wide ranges of temperature.

PhD and PDF positions in computational mechanics at York University

Vacancies exist for high calibre one PhD student and one postdoctoral fellow to join the Innovative Design and Engineering Analysis Laboratory at York University, starting immediately.
The position’s primary area of research will focus on multi-scale material modelling and optimization.

crack extension curve

Dear all

My project work is in crack analysis, so I used cohesive zone model for crack analysis in Abaqus.I implement the cohesive element in crack path but I don't known how to plot crack extension vs time(load, J-integral) curve.

Pls suggest the procedure for ploting crack extension curve.

 

thanks.

Postdoctoral Position Opening at Stanford University

Prof. Wei Cai at the Mechanical Engineering Department of Stanford University is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to lead a project on the modeling of grain structure evolution in the surface layer under friction.  The major task of this project is the development of a phase field model for grain/sub-grain structure evolution under friction.  It is likely that molecular dynamics and dislocation dynamics simulations would be required as well to obtain a good physical understanding of the process.

Differential Complexes in Continuum Mechanics

We study some differential complexes in continuum mechanics that involve both symmetric and non-symmetric second-order tensors. In particular, we show that the tensorial analogue of the standard grad-curl-div complex can simultaneously describe the kinematics and the kinetics of motions of a continuum. The relation between this complex and the de Rham complex allows one to readily derive the necessary and sufficient conditions for the compatibility of the displacement gradient and the existence of stress functions on non-contractible bodies.

coupled analysis with umat

Dear all,

I want to do coupled analysis(pore fluid/stress) in abaqus. I use a umat subroutin for define my material (that is soil). other hand I want to use void ratio in permeability. I define permeability in material but I want to use void ratio in my subroutin and the void ratio can changed and dont be constant during run. Do anybody know, how can I changed void ratio with my variables defined in umat?

Of course, I tried to use user field variables, but in window of Pearmibilty there isnt icon of "number of field variables" and I couldnt define "field" for void ratio.
