Bio-inspired solution for optimal adhesive performance

In recent years there has been a growing interest into high performance bioinspired adhesives. This communication focuses on the adhesive behavior of a rigid cylinder that indents an elastic layer coated on a rigid substrate. With the assumption of short range adhesive interactions (JKR type) the adhesive solution is obtained very easily starting from the adhesiveless one.

Converting viscoelastic Prony Series terms from ABAQUS to LS-DYNA

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

In Abaqus, 

g(t) = 1 - ∑(gi * (1-exp(-t/taui)); 

in which g and gi are dimensionless. 



G(t) = ∑( Gi * exp(-betai * t) ); 

in which G and Gi are in N/m2


Based on this information, how do we transform the Prony Series terms from one code to another or vice-versa given I don't have the test data available.


Also, if I have the test data, what is a recommended process to determine Prony Series terms from the same?

Our new review on "Hydrogel Bioelectronics"

It is my first blog entry to iMechanica after long period of only reading.

In this review published in Chemical Soceity Reviews, we systematically revealed the design principles for bioelectronics and discussed hydrogels' merits and potential in bioelectronics.

Stress-life vs strain life approaches in ?

dear collegue

 have you ever tried to compare the stress-life approach with the strain-life?

 I was experimenting with some students using the website normal notches and normal materials included in the web site database.
