Discussion of fracture paper #18 - A crack tip energy release rate caused by T-stress

A T-stress is generally not expected to contribute to the stress intensity factor because its contribution to the free energy is the same before and after crack growth. Nothing lost, nothing gained. Some time ago I came across a situation when a T-stress, violates this statement. The scene is the atomic level. As the crack is producing new crack surfaces the elastic stiffness in the few atomic layers closest to the crack plane are modified. This changes the elastic energy which could provide, contribute to or at least modify the energy release rate.

Lab-on-Skin: A Review of Flexible and Stretchable Electronics for Wearable Health Monitoring

Skin is the largest organ of the human body, and it offers a diagnostic interface rich with vital biological signals from the inner organs, blood vessels, muscles, and dermis/epidermis. Soft, flexible, and stretchable electronic devices provide a novel platform to interface with soft tissues for robotic feedback and control, regenerative medicine, and continuous health monitoring.

On arterial fiber dispersion and auxetic effect

There are two polar contemporary approaches to the constitutive modeling of arterial wall with anisotropy induced by collagen fibers. The first one is based on the angular integration (AI) of the strain energy on a unit sphere for the analytically defined fiber dispersion. The second one is based on the introduction of the generalized structure tensors (GST). AI approach is very involved computationally while GST approach requires somewhat complicated procedure for the exclusion of compressed fibers.

PhD positions in Computational Mechanics at the University of Wisconsin Madison

Looking for prospective PhD students with strong background in solid mechanics and numerical methods to join the Computational Mechanics and Multiphysics Group at the University of Wisconsin Madison. Background in modeling contact or contact mechanics is a big plus but not essential.  

The research scope is in the broader areas of mechanics driven multiphysics in morphogenesis/embroyogenesis phenomena (Biophysics) and microstructure evolution in metallic alloys.
