Dear Imechanicians,

Simpleware at NAFEMS UK 2016, June 15-16

The 2016 NAFEMS UK Regional Conference will cover a wide range of topics, addressing every aspect of engineering analysis and simulation during a 2-day program. The 2016 conference will bring together the leading visionaries, developers, and practitioners of CAE-related technologies in an open forum. Covering all aspects of the technology including FEA, CFD & MBS, the event will focus heavily on best-practice, use cases, state of the art, problem areas, developing fields and much more.

Journal Club Theme of June 2016: 2D Materials: Current and Future Directions

Two-Dimensional (2D) materials have been widely studied since the discovery of graphene in 2004.  Many of the initial works on the various 2D materials (graphene, MoS2 and other transition metal dichalcogenides, black phosphorus, and others like the monochalcogenides) by mechanicians focused on issues like ideal strength, and appropriate methods to calculate the bending modulus.  Some of these, and other issues, were reviewed by Sulin Zhang in a J-Club from March 2015 (http://imechanica

Nonlinear Elasticity in a Deforming Ambient Space

In this paper we formulate a nonlinear elasticity theory in which the ambient space is evolving. For a continuum moving in an evolving ambient space, we model time dependency of the metric by a time-dependent embedding of the ambient space in a larger manifold with a fixed background metric. We derive both the tangential and the normal governing equations. We then reduce the standard energy balance written in the larger ambient space to that in the evolving ambient space.

Transmission and localisation in ordered and randomly-perturbed structured flexural systems

The paper presents a novel analysis of localisation and transmission properties of randomly-perturbed flexural systems. Attention is given to the study of propagation regimes and the connection with localised resonance modes in the context of Anderson's localisation. The analytical study is complemented with numerical simulations relevant to the design of efficient vibration isolation systems.

 

Eigenvalues, reflected and transmitted energy, localisation factors for the examined bi-coupled random system:
