Quantitative phase-field crystal modeling of solid-liquid interfaces for FCC metals

This work deals with the quantification and application of the modified two-mode phase-field crystal model (M2PFC; Asadi and Asle Zaeem, 2015) for face-centered cubic (FCC) metals at their melting point. The connection of M2PFC model to the classical density functional theory is explained in this article. M2PFC model in its dimensionless form contains three parameters (two independent and one dependent) which are determined using an iterative procedure based on the molecular dynamics and experimental data.

About adiabatic shear failure.....

Not too long ago, we identified dynamic recrystallization (DRX) as a potentially softening factor leading to the formation of adiabatic shear bands. However, the exact nature and the extent of the softening effect till remained to be assessed. The link to our new paper provides additional information on this issue.

PhD studentship in "Statistical mechanics of single cells" at the Cambridge University Engineering Department

Eukaryotic cells exhibit considerable variability in their responses in terms of observables such as cell shape, cell area, cytoskeletal protein arrangements etc. This variability/fluctuation is inherent to the bio-chemical processes occurring within cells: in-fact cells use these fluctuations to detect and respond to their environment.

Post yield response of amorphous polymers under different stress states

In this contribution, an elasto-viscoplastic constitutive model based on the single mode EGP (Eindhoven Glassy Polymer) model is proposed to describe the deformation behaviour of solid polymers subjected to finite deformations under different stress states. The material properties of the original model are determined and calibrated from a uniaxial compression-loading test. Then, several numerical examples under different stress states are presented to illustrate the limitations.

Microscale Testing and Modelling of Cement Paste as Basis for Multi-Scale Modelling

Dear all,

We have just published a research paper presenting, for the first time ever, a method for direct microscale mechanical testing of cement paste. We find this method very useful, and believe that it can provide a good basis for multi-scale modelling of cement and concrete materials.

The Anelastic Ericksen's Problem: Universal Eigenstrains and Deformations in Compressible Isotropic Elastic Solids

The elastic Ericksen's problem consists of finding deformations in isotropic hyperelastic solids that can be maintained for arbitrary strain-energy density functions.  In the compressible case, Ericksen showed that only homogeneous deformations are possible. Here, we solve the anelastic version of the same problem, that is we determine both the deformations and the eigenstrains such that a solution to the anelastic problem exists for arbitrary strain-energy density functions. Anelasticity is described by finite eigenstrains.
