Simulation of crack growth in Ni-based single crystals

In a cooperative research between PoliMi and UIUC we have analyzed the crack growth in Ni-based single crystals:

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0142112316000840

 Crack growth experiments analyzed with DIC had shown relatively low closure levels respect to polycrystals. Crystal plasticity simulations with WARP3D have been able to simulate closure levels consistent with the experimental ones.

Introduction

Application of Bernoulli equation in cold forming of Steel

Hi All

I know it might sound weird, but can I use the bernoulli equation to know the velocity of steel running in thinner throtles in cold forming, that might have a higher velocity, via analytic method. in this condition, the metal is not so much like a fluid, but it's deforming ,and it's behavior and speed is different when it passes in different cross section areas

Negative Poisson's Ratio in Single-Layer Graphene Ribbons

The Poisson's ratio characterizes the resultant strain in the lateral direction for a material under longitudinal deformation.  Though negative Poisson's ratios (NPR) are theoretically possible within continuum elasticity, they are most frequently observed in engineered materials and structures, as they are not intrinsic to many materials.  In this work, we report NPR in single-layer graphene ribbons, which results from the compressive edge stress induced warping of the edges.
