A few experimental studies on the dynamic behavior of foam-like aligned carbon nanotubes

I'm posting a few experimental studies we have conducted on the dynamic behavior of hierarchical fibrous materials, using vertically aligned carbon nanotubes as a model material. I hope these will be useful to those who are interested in buckle-instabilities, multiscale behavior, and energy absorption mechanisms.

An overview:

Special Volume of the International Journal of Fracture

As part of the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the International Journal of Fracture, two special volumes were published in 2015. All articles of the 2nd 50th anniversary issue published in Nov/Dec 2015 are now freely accessible at the journal site until the 7th of April. These articles (and the ones published in the 1st 50th anniversary issue published in Jan/Feb 2015) provide reviews and perspectives on many aspects of fracture. You are welcome to browse thorough these articles and provide feedback on this blog!

Matlab source code for XFEM implementation (2D dynamic crack propagation problem)

Hello everyone,

 

I was looking for a Matlab source code for implementing XFEM to solve a dynamic problem (specifically dynamic crack propagation problem). I found several source codes which only solve static problems (they don't calculate mass matrix and they don't do the time integration). 

 

My research goal is to remove the oscillations from stress intensity factors  for a dynmic crack propagation problem. I will really appreciate any kind of help/suggestions.

 

With respectfully

Bhuiyan, A B M Abdul Ali

Post-doctoral positions at National University of Singapore (NUS) and Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD)

Starting April 2016, we will have openings for two post-doctoral fellow positions in experimental and computational mechanics of advanced polymers. These positions will support a new research program between Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) and National University of Singapore (NUS) funded by Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR). The project focuses on synthesizing, characterizing, modeling, and simulating the thermo-mechanical behavior of polymers with covalent adaptable networks (CANs), e.g. vitrimers.

PhD Position in Computational Biophysics at SUNY Binghamton

A research assistant position funded by NIH is available for a new PhD student in Mechanical Engineering at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Binghamton. The research is focused on biomolecular modeling of bacterial outer membranes. The goal is to reveal the specific interactions between small signaling molecules and physiologically-relevant asymmetric lipid membranes and the membrane behavior in response to the insertion of molecules.

Interalaminar damage model

Dear iMechanicas,

 

I need advices from experts regarding choosing a proper interalaminar damage model for the implementation into the theory of plates and shells. I am going to apply a failure criterion which is straight forward but concerning the degradation procedure of material properties I may need some suggestions.

 

Best regards,

2 postdoc opportunities in topology optimization in Cardiff, UK

Applications are sought for four Post-Doctoral Research Associates to join a very active research group at Cardiff University, UK (School of Engineering).  Based in Cardiff, there will be frequent interactions with the University of California, San Diego as well as major aerospace companies in the UK. The research will formulate and develop numerical methods for mulitiscale and multiphysics design optimisation using level set topology optimization.

Relation between plasticity and damage in studying the frictional behaviour between two composite laminates.

Hi all, 

     I want to model mode II composite delamination incorporating frictional effects. I found papers by Alfano and Sacco (2006) and few others also. My question is that to model such a situation are :

1) should I incorporate plasticity or damage analysis or both? What is the rite approach? 

2) In each of these cases, do I need to have a plastic yield function and damage surface ??
