Theoretical study of magneto-rheological elastomers

I post the links to some of our recently published papers on magneto-elasticity. These are iron-filled elastomers whose mechanical properties can be influenced by the application of a magnetic field. A continuum theory that accounts for magneto-mechanical coupling as well as rate-dependent energy dissipating deformations is presented.

I also attach post-print versions of these articles here. Hopefully, they can be useful for some people working in this field.

Abaqus UEL for coupled diffusion-deformation theory for elastomeric gels

We have a new paper in IJSS that discusses details about Abaqus user elements, in the context of polymer gels, that may be useful to the community. The supplemental material of the paper provides the UEL code, some input files, as well as a short tutorial that should be helpful to others in their own research projects, even if not related to gels.

Journal Club Theme of November 2014: Catalyzed Growth of Semiconductor Nanowires - Multiscale Models


Happy Halloween!

In this issue of the Journal Club, I would like to introduce the problem of catalyzed growth of semiconductor nanowires and ways to model it.  I would provide web links to only a few articles, hoping that you would download and actually read them so that we can have a more in-depth discussion. 

Composite orthogonal cutting - contact problem

Hello to everybody,

I am trying to simulate the orthogonal cutting of carbon fiber reinforced polymer composite using Abaqus v6.13 software. In my 2D model, Fiber and Matrix are represented as different phases. Damage models for fiber and matrix are implemented.

I have tried to use two different approaches:

what's the relation of the viscous hydrodynamic forces and swirl?

what's the relation of the viscous hydrodynamic forces and swirl?

Are the viscous hydrodynamic forces and the nonlinear viscous hydrodynamic forces applied on offshore platform in the ocean?

Are the viscous hydrodynamic forces and the nonlinear viscous hydrodynamic forces applied on offshore platform in the ocean?The platform is fixed.
