Buckling of an elastic layer based on implicit constitution: Incremental theory and numerical framework

A general class of implicit bodies was proposed to describe elastic response of solids, which contains the Cauchy–Green tensor as a function of Cauchy stress. Here, we consider the buckling of solids described by such a subclass of implicit constitutive relation. We present a general linear incremental theory and carry out bifurcation analysis of a uniaxially compressed rectangular layer described by an implicit constitution.

Discussion of fracture paper #30 - Weight functions, cracks and corners

Weight functions are practical tools in linear elastic systems where several discrete or continuously distributed sources cause something, deformation, stress, or related stuff. In linear fracture mechanics, as also in the object of this blog, weight functions are used to calculate stress intensity factors. If the load is divided into discrete or continuous separate or overlapping parts which each gives a known contribution to the stress intensity factor, i.e. has a known weight, calculation for new loads may be reduced to simple algebra instead of extensive numerical calculations.

Postdoctoral Position Opening at Stanford University

Prof. Wei Cai at the Mechanical Engineering Department of Stanford University is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to lead a project on the modeling of dislocations dynamics in the presence of hydrogen.  The major task of this project is to enable/perform Dislocation Dynamics simulations with hydrogen effects using the ParaDiS program. Molecular dynamics simulations may be required to provide physical input to the Dislocation Dynamics model.  The postdoctoral researcher is also expected to collaborate with external experimentalists working on this project.

Viscoelastic normal indentation of nominally flat randomly rough contacts

Viscoelastic materials are receiving increasing attention in soft robots and pressure sensitive adhesives design, but also in passive damping techniques in automotive and aerospace industry. Here, by using the correspondence principle originally developed by Lee and Radok and further extended by Ting and Greenwood, we transform the elastic solutions of Persson for contact of nominally flat but randomly rough surfaces to viscoelastic indentation. As an example, the cases of step loading and of the response to a single cycle of harmonic loading are studied.

New Program Directors in Mechanics-Focused Programs at NSF

Dear Mechanics Community Members:

We have great news to share! Two additional program directors have joined the Mechanics and Engineering Materials (MEM) cluster. Recall that the MEM cluster is composed of two programs devoted to the discipline of mechanics: Biomechanics and Mechanobiology (BMMB) and Mechanics of Materials and Structures (MoMS). The new hires will work across and bridge both programs, forming a complement of five program directors in total serving the needs of the ever-expanding mechanics community.

Universal Deformations in Inhomogeneous Isotropic Nonlinear Elastic Solids

Universal (controllable) deformations of an elastic solid are those deformations that can be maintained for all possible strain-energy density functions and suitable boundary tractions. Universal deformations have played a central role in nonlinear elasticity and anelasticity. However, their classification has been mostly established for homogeneous isotropic solids following the seminal works of Ericksen. In this paper, we extend Ericksen's analysis of universal deformations to inhomogeneous compressible and incompressible isotropic solids.
