UMAT for MAZAR's Concrete Damage Model

Hello All,

I am working on stochastic upscalling of damage in concrete microstructure. Can someone provide a UMAT for Mazar's damage model or any resource to help me create UMAT on my own.

Thank you.

Matlab source code for XFEM implementation (2D dynamic crack propagation problem)

Hello everyone,


I was looking for a Matlab source code for implementing XFEM to solve a dynamic problem (specifically dynamic crack propagation problem). I found several source codes which only solve static problems (they don't calculate mass matrix and they don't do the time integration). 


My research goal is to remove the oscillations from stress intensity factors  for a dynmic crack propagation problem. I will really appreciate any kind of help/suggestions.


With respectfully

Post-doctoral positions at National University of Singapore (NUS) and Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD)

Starting April 2016, we will have openings for two post-doctoral fellow positions in experimental and computational mechanics of advanced polymers. These positions will support a new research program between Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) and National University of Singapore (NUS) funded by Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR). The project focuses on synthesizing, characterizing, modeling, and simulating the thermo-mechanical behavior of polymers with covalent adaptable networks (CANs), e.g. vitrimers.

Post-doctoral, Research Associate positions in Failure Micromechanics

We have two research positions, available in November 2015, in the area of micromechanics of advanced structural steels. The first one is a post-doctoral research fellow (RF) position. An ideal candidate for this position must possess a PhD in mechanical engineering or related field with a strong background in computational materials mechanics. Experience of developing mesoscale methods such as dislocation dynamics or crystal plasticity and mesoscale fracture mechanics will be a definite plus. 

Yield stress fluid flows

A Virtual Special Issue of the Journal of Non-Newtonian Fluid Mechanics devoted to yield stress fluid flows has just been released. With this first Virtual Special Issue of the journal we inaugurate a practice, which we plan to make regular, of highlighting developments on a particular subject of relevance in order to guide and encourage research in the field.

Ultimate Linear Motion Mechanism For Clean Energy



I apply force using one slider to another slider. Best part is one slider move little bit and help second slider to slide 6 times length at 70 % force.

Energy Used to move first slider=force*distance



Energy Get on Other Slider= Force*Distance

=Force applied by first slider*cos(45`)*distance

Explicit Dynamics with ANSYS LS-DYNA training course

This training course covers the ANSYS LS-DYNA Interface, which seamlessly links the ANSYTS traditional environment pre- and post-processing software with the LS-DYNA explicit solver to conduct highly nonlinear, transient dynamic analyses. Sequential solutions are also discussed, in which the ANSYS implicit solver is used in conjunction with the LS-DYNA explicit solver to extend the range of applications.
