Asking for help in BAJA SAE Car

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

Hello,I've joined a racing contest for Off-Road cars , called Baja SAE ( Society of Automotive Engineers)

The car contains tubes that are welded together or attached together by flanges

I am familiar with Abaqus and ANSYS btw

What are the main aspects that we should consider in modeling and simulating a baja sae car ?
BAJA SAE Car to be made

Can you help me with this?

A Nobel Prize worthy paper, unifying Mechanics and Thermodynamics with a mathematical basis

I highly recommend this paper to any mechanician who is familiar with the scientific efforst in the last 150 years to unify mechanics and thermodynamics. Sosnoskiy and Sherbakov and several others from the Russian Academy of Sciences listed in the Acknowledgemnsts have achieved it. Congratulations.

UMAT Non linear Viscoelasticity - Algorithm verification?

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

Hello everybody,

           My task is to write a UMAT for Non-linear Viscoelasicity based on Schapery's model in ABAQUS. I have coded the routine, but I am still not able to predict correct response. I tried to debug it as much as I can. I understand that it would be difficult for anybody to understand my code. So, I have attached a flowchart (pdf) of the whole algorithm that I follow. It would be nice if you could check that and correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks in advance for your time and consideration

Regards

Shree

Mechanics of Additively Manufactured Biomaterials and Implants: Special issue of J Mech Behav Biomed Mater

Additive manufacturing (AM) has emerged as a powerful technique for manufacturing of various types of biomaterials and implants. Using AM, it is now possible to fabricate biomaterials with arbitrarily complex shapes at different scales. The inventory of biomaterials that can be used in this way continues to increase, extending the possible range of products and applications.

EML Special Issue on 3D Assembly by Cutting, Bending and Folding

EML Special Issue on 3D Assembly by Cutting, Bending and Folding

When patterned with different materials, gradients or cut-outs, thin structures such as sheets and rods can bend or fold either spontaneously or by actuation in response to a force or stimulus to form a pre-designed three dimensional structure. This special issue addresses the design and mechanics of these structures with a special emphasis on programmability and non-linearity.

RSS- -Cost-Efficient Open Source Desktop Size Radial Stretching System With Force Sensor

The rapid and efficient development of soft active materials requires readily available, compact testing equipment. We propose a desktop-sized, cost-efficient, and open source radial stretching system as an alternative to commercially available biaxial and uniaxial stretching devices. It allows for doubling the diameter of an elastomer membrane while measuring the applied force. Our development enables significant cost reduction (<300 €) and increase the availability of equibiaxial deformation measurements for scientific material analysis.
