The Renaissance of Continuum Mechanics

Dear friends of IMechanica:

 

Primary data mining through Web of Science
reveals that the number of papers containing “continuum mechanics ” increases
rapidly these years. This is a very exciting fact to our mechanicians. Thus, I
wrote a short paper titled “The Renaissance of Continuum Mechanics”, which was just
published online via:

Piezoelectricity above the Curie temperature? Combining flexoelectricity and functional grading to enable high-temperature elect

Most technologically relevant ferroelectrics typically lose piezoelectricity above the Curie temperature. This limits their use to relatively low temperatures. In this Letter, exploiting a combination of flexoelectricity and simple functional grading, we propose a strategy for high-temperature electromechanical coupling in a standard thin film configuration.
