Unified Mechanics Theory

I thought mechanics community would be interested in my presentation on Unified Mechanics Theory, where I modify Newton's Equations in a succint form to incorporate Thermodynamics into Newtons Laws, which presently they don't have. [is there any proof, ?Yes the new form of the Newton's Laws have been proven experimentally since 1997 and mathematically in 2016}

Discussion of fracture paper #20 - Add stronger singularities to improve numerical accuracy

It is common practice to obtain stress intensity factors in elastic materials by using Williams series expansions truncated at the r^(-1/2)-stress term. I ask myself, what if both evaluations of experimental and numerical data is improved by including lower order (stronger singularities) terms? The standard truncation is done in a readworthy pape

Roll up your sleeves

When you push up your sleeves, wrinkles form, which eventually evolve into ridges (pictured). As familiar as you may be with this phenomenon, have you ever thought about its underlying mechanism? It involves the complex nonlinear mechanical behaviour of large deformations and surface instabilities, which in turn give rise to a sophisticated morphological evolution. And now, Yifan Yang and co-workers have revealed a hitherto unknown post-buckling behaviour that involves multiple bifurcation transitions (Phys. Rev.

A question regarding applying the boundary conditions in thin film peeling

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

Hello all,

As is my understanding that, in analytical models such as "Kendall Peeling Model", when they talk about peeling angle it is the angle at which the peeling force is applied (or am I wrong?). But when it comes to FE analysis, if we displace one end of the film at an angle by applying displacement boundary conditions on that end, the resulting forces are not along the same direction of the displacements. So, I am confused as to how to compare the FE results with that of the analytical models.

Thank you.
