Nonequilibrium interface behavior in Cahn-Hilliard models for Li-ion batteries

Experiments, numerical simulations, and analytical calculations are used to calibrate a diffuse-interface Cahn-Hilliard model of Li-Sn thin film electrodes that experience a transformation from Sn to Li2Sn5. It is shown that a concentration-gradient dependent mobility can be used in the Cahn-Hilliard equation to give the interface a finite mobility and capture its nonequilibrium behavior.

Compatible-Strain Mixed Finite Element Methods for 2D Compressible Nonlinear Elasticity

In this paper, using the Hilbert complexes of nonlinear elasticity, the approximation theory for Hilbert complexes, and the finite element exterior calculus, we introduce a new class of mixed finite element methods for 2D nonlinear elasticity -- compatible-strain mixed finite element methods (CSFEM). We consider a Hu-Washizu-type mixed formulation and choose the displacement, the displacement gradient, and the first Piola-Kirchhoff stress tensor as independent unknowns. We use the underlying spaces of the Hilbert complexes as the solution and test spaces.

Meet the Editors-in-Chief of Mechanics Journals at SES2016: An Open Forum

The advent of internet era has been driving some significant changes in scientific publication process. The needs for optimizing publication process, from manuscript preparation and submission, to review process and to post-publication dissemination, are ubiquitous for many disciplines. There is no exception for the mechanics field.

Free-standing graphene slit membrane for enhanced desalination This study considers two novel ideas to further explore and enhance the graphene membrane for desalination. Firstly, while earlier molecular dynamics (MD) simulations studies have used frozen membranes, free-standing membrane is considered here. Since 2D membranes are usually embedded on porous support in the experimental reverse osmosis (RO) process, the free-standing membrane can more accurately model the behavior expected during operation.
