Journal Club Theme of February 2014: Energy Challenges and Mechanics

Since James Watt, a Scottish inventor, invented the steam engine, human civilization relies more and more on energy supply. The re-rise as an international superpower and the global energy crisis are challenging China and the world. We are at a transitional age. On the one hand, we see the technology advances in exploration and development of oil and gas, a depleting resource; and the growth in handling ageing and decommissioning. On the other hand, we see ideas and plans for new energy structure in the future.

The toughest hydrogel in the world

The class started today.  I'll be teaching fracture mechanics this semester.  I'll be mostly using the class notes I wrote in 2010, but will post updated ones. 

In today's class I covered "Trouble with linear elastic theory of strength."  I have just posted updated notes of the lecture.  The new notes begin with the follwoing paragraphs.

Phase-field modelling of crack in fixed grid

In phase field method how one can specify the crack in fixed grid?

In case of finite element method one uses two overlapping nodes to model crack, which nodes separate after crack propagation. In case of phase-field, generally people use fixed grid finite difference method. My question is how the same node point can show two different displacements when crack has passed through it like FEM?
