Crack Growth Resistance in Metallic Alloys: The Role of Isotropic Versus Kinematic Hardening

We have always modelled crack propagation under monotonic/static loading in metals assuming isotropic hardening. However, we show that anisotropic/kinematic hardening effects play a significant role due to non-proportional straining with crack advance; the isotropic hardening idealization leads to steady state fracture toughness predictions that could be 50% lower. I hope that some of you find this work interesting.

Mechanics of spontaneously formed nanoblisters trapped by transferred 2D crystals

Mechanics of Spontaneously Formed Nanoblisters Trapped by Transferred 2D Crystals. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences 2018 - Layered systems of 2D crystals and heterostructures are widely explored for new physics and devices. In many cases, monolayer or few-layer 2D crystals are transferred to a target substrate including other 2D crystals, and nanometer-scale blisters form spontaneously between the 2D crystal and its substrate.
