Graphene reinforced polymer composites: 3D micromechanical modelling, damage and fracture

3D computational model of graphene reinforced polymer composites is developed and applied to the analysis of damage and fracture mechanisms in the composites. The graphene/polymer interface properties are determined using the inverse modeling approach. The effect of composite structure, in particular, of the aspect ratio, shape, clustering, orientation and volume fraction of graphene platelets on the
mechanical behavior and damage mechanisms of nanocomposites are studied in computational experiments.

Sutured tendon repair; a multi-scale finite element model.

We've recently published an open access journal paper that looks at the mechanics of sutures used to repair severed tendons. A homogenization strategy is used to derive effective elastic properties for tendon fibrils and intracellular matrix. We have found that regions of high stress correlate with the regions of cell death (necrosis) that are sometimes observed in patients.

If this is of interest, please feel free to view the paper here.

Micromechanics of collective buckling in CNT turfs

Complex structures consisting of intertwined, nominally vertical carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are called turfs. Under uniform compression experiments, CNT turfs exhibit irreversible collective buckling of a layer preceded by reorientation of CNT segments. Experimentally observed independence of the buckling stress and the buckling wavelength on the turf width suggests the existence of an intrinsic material length.

Post-doc application still open in Southampton

There is still time to apply the 5-year post-doctoral position at the University of Southampton. We are looking for a talented young researcher to join a group working on the definition of the next generation of high strain rate tests based on ultra-high speed deformation imaging and inverse identification (PhotoDyn project).

Basic Equations in Fluid Mechanics

I wrote these notes as a background for teaching elasticity and plasticity.  Even in this most basic formulation, the dilation of the fluid is viscoelastic.

The theoretical ultimate magnetoelectric coefficients of magnetoelectric composites by optimization design

This paper investigates what is the largest magnetoelectric (ME) coefficient of ME composites, and how to realize it. From the standpoint of energy conservation, a theoretical analysis is carried out on an imaginary lever structure consisting of a magnetostrictive phase, a piezoelectric phase, and a rigid lever. This structure is a generalization of various composite layouts for optimization on ME effect.
