Graphene is softer to bend when stretched and bent and harder to stretch when bent and moderately stretched

 

In the attached paper, we have shown that concomitant bending and stretching, whatever their value, concur to make bending stiffness decrease; moreover, concomitant bending and stretching make the stretching stiffness (or the Young modulus) increase until the applied forces reach a threshold value, then they make it decrease. Said differently, graphene is softer to bend when stretched and bent and harder to stretch when bent and moderately stretched.

 

Cable bending stiffness: new test data

A new paper by Chen et al.: Experimental research on bending performance of structural cable. In: Construction and Building Materials, 15 October 2015, Vol. 96, pp. 279-288. Equivalent bending stiffness has been obtained applying a force at midspan of simply supported, about one meter long, specimens. A number of tensile force levels have been applied (including zero). Non-linear force-deflection curves are shown.

Anisotropic stiffness of isotropic material

Dear colleagues,

 

Consider a simple non-linear elastic material with stress given as

σ = D(εdev) εdev + B εiso

where εdev is the norm of εdev, D is a function of εdev and B is constant. The material is isotropic since the principal directions of  σ and ε will coincide.

If we differentiate σ wrt ε to obtain the material stiffness the form of the stiffness tensor will be

Non Linear Analysis Ansys

When Working on Ansys Non Linear Static Structural Analysis, I couldn't comprehen while defining and assigning material properties to corrosponding bodies.

When I give different random values for density in Engineering Data and runing the jobs parallely the results look SIMILAR for all the independent values, I couldn't fish out on what basis do the software is giving out results.

Clamping with a specific stiffness in Abaqus

Hello,

is there a simple possibility to set a boundary condition to clamp my sheet in Abaqus with a specific stiffness?

Usually you use the "encastre"-boundary condition. But I would like to give this condition a specific stiffness.

Thanks a lot for your help in advance

Spring stiffness of a helical spring

Once in a while I have to find the stiffness of a spring that I get from the local hardware shop.  I usually use a formula that can be found in some books on mechanics of materials.

But the assumptions bother me a bit because the springs that I used usually underwent large deformations and I wasn't sure whether the numbers I was using were correct or not.  

To check the formula I compared its predicted k to numbers from Abaqus simulations and found reasonably good results for many situations - but not for soft springs.

Finite Element Modeling On Polymer Nanocomposite with Clay Nanofiller

I'm doing Mtech project on Finite Element Modeling On Polymer Nanocomposite with Clay Nanofiller.  For that am using ABAQUS software,  so i need some information regarding that ABAQUS software, how to do finite element modeling of nanocomposites with nanofiller and How to prepare a code distrubution in the plate like particales in the polymer matrix with ABAQUS software. So please can any give information.

how to set the absolute contact stiffness when considering cohesive zone material (CZM)property

I'm simulating the interface between a steel plate and the fire proof coatings covering the steel plate. The elements i use in the simulation is contact 173 with a material property of debonding,which is defined as cohesive zone model.(CZM)

 CZM in ansys provides  TBDATA such as maximum contact stress,contact at the completion of debonding, but what's the problem is that I failed to set the initial contact stiffness. it's true that ansys provides FKN to define the contact stiffness, but it's just a stiffness factor.

Stiffening of organosilicate glasses by organic cross-linking

Atomistic simulations show that organosilicates, used as low-permittivity dielectric materials in advanced integrated circuits, can be made substantially stiffer than amorphous silica, while maintaining a lower mass density. The enhanced stiffness is achieved by incorporating organic cross-links to replace bridging oxygen atoms in the silica network. To elucidate the mechanism responsible for the enhanced stiffness, the conformational changes in the network upon hydrostatic and shear loading are examined.

Stiffness of a beam

Hi,

As a part of my research, I would like to break down a simply supported beam to two beams shown in the attachement.  I expect to remove the bond and use of springs for transforming deformation of upper beam to lower beam. What could be the stiffness of springs which could be used in new model?

Thank you for your comment,

Stiffness matrix from ANSYS Classic

I want to get stiffnes matrix from ANSYS Classic. I used substructure analysis and using list->other-> super element data and got stiffness matrix of whole structure. But I want to get stiffness matrix of individual elements. Can I do it in ANSYS Classic?

1. Definition of nanocomposites Nanocomposites are a novel class of composite materials whose reinforcements have dimensions in the range of 1-100 nm. Although nanoscale reinforcements (or nanofillers) of nanocomposites have different kinds of fillers such as nanofibers, nanowires, nanotubes and nanoparticles etc, their mechanical behaviors have some common features.
