Dynamic response and localisation in strongly damaged waveguides

In this paper, we investigate the formation of band-gaps and localisation phenomena in an elastic strip nearly disintegrated by an array of transverse cracks. We analyse the eigenfrequencies of finite, strongly damaged, elongated solids with reference to the propagation bands of an infinite strip with a periodic damage. Subsequently, we determine analytically the band-gaps of the infinite strip by using a lower-dimensional model, represented by a periodically-damaged beam in which the small ligaments between cracks are modelled as ‘elastic junctions’.

Postdoctoral Fellow, Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute: Modeling the dynamic failure of geological materials

A new postdoctoral fellow position is available within the Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute (hemi.jhu.edu) at Johns Hopkins University.  The position is in the area of experiments and modeling of inelastic deformations in geological materials (including damage and micromechanics of fracture) under impact mechanical loading conditions.  The potential candidate will (a) assist in the development of theoretical and computational models for dynamic behavior and failure of geological materials, (b) closely interact with experts in x-ray phase

2nd Call for Abstracts: USNCCM13 Minisymposium 414 on Recent Advances in Mesh Adaptivity for Inelasticity, Damage, Crack Propagation and Failure.

In this minisymposium we seek to highlight challenging problems in computational solid mechanics that require mesh adaptation methods for their solution. We focus on the finite element method and works that address large deformations and the accompanying inelasticity, damage, crack propagation and failure. Discussion will center on Lagrangian descriptions and determining the necessary computational components to resolve, preserve, and evolve the fields that govern these processes. Prototypical material systems may include, but are not limited to, ductile metals and biomaterials.

PhD position on multi-scale modelling of fatigue damage in composites @ Ghent University (Belgium)

The core idea of this project is to develop a consistent multi-scale modelling framework for fatigue damage in unidirectionally reinforced composites. Three scales are distinguished:

Dear colleagues,

I am organizing sessions related to “Composite Armor” and “Impact Dynamics” at the following conferences in 2014. I would like to personally invite you and your research group to submit an abstract.

FEM Code for Wave Propagation Analysis

Hi every body,

I'm looking for a FEM code (Matlab, C++, Python,...) for analysis wave propagation in plates.

It would be the most kind of you to let me know how I can find it.

Softening material response in Abaqus

I am trying to model flexure of a material with softening stress-strain response. How can I model that! I know Abaqus can not handle negative tangent modulus. And, how do I simulate damage in the beam!

 

Any help/suggestion is highly appreciated!
