Now receiving submissions, Extreme Mechanics Letters – Special Issue on ‘Frontiers of mechanical metamaterials’

This themed issue on mechanical metamaterials invites contributions from different perspectives with the aim of highlighting the latest advances in the field.

The themed issue will focus on mechanical metamaterials in the general sense. This includes acoustic and elastic metamaterials as well as other types of metamaterials with unique mechanical and/or thermal properties at any length scale.

Topics of interest include the following:

Webinar - Accurate and rapid 3D multi-point optimization of Turbomachinery by Integration of TURBOdesign1 with ANSYS Workbench

Emission regulations such as the EU ECOdesign or US Department of Energy Pump Systems directives require pumps to be designed based on their life cycle emissions and hence require pump stages to be optimized considering multiple operating points.

NonLinear Beam formulation

Hello,

  I am phd student in mechanical engineering. I want to use of total lagrangian formulation for analysis of a cantilever beam element using UEL abaqus subroutines. my difficulty is how to calculate the internal load and the tangent stiffness matrix. my code does not converge. can you help me. if there is a simple code I was wondering if someone aware me.

 

Thanks in advance

A short course on "stability analysis and bifurcation theory" by Ryan Elliott

With a growing interest in soft materials, stability and bifurcation analysis is re-emerging to be a critical topic for mechanicians. There are some excellent books out there but most tend to focus on finite dimensional systems rather than (continuous) infinite dimensional systems which are of most interest to mechanicians. In general, much of the modern developments on this topic are scattered across journal papers and perhaps there are not too many pedagogical resources for beginners.
