Elastic behavior in porous materials

In the work shown here:

Multiscale modeling of effective elastic properties of fluid-filled porous materials

The elastic deformation and its dependence on fluid displacement is studied at two distinct scales, to address the multi-scale nature of porous structures in nature.

Electrical resistance at rough surfaces in contact

Electrical Contact Resistance of Fractal Rough Surfaces 

 

The presence of roughness at electrical contacts tends to involve contacting asperities across multiple scales. Depending on the nature of the contact between asperities on opposing surfaces, different conduction mechanisms take place. This is shown in the figure here.

Contact stiffness of rough surfaces

Contact stiffness of multiscale surfaces by truncation analysis

 

In this concise piece of work, an effective method is shown to gain new understandings into the role of surface structure in the field of contact mechanics. In particular, normal contact stiffness is correlated to parameters of surfaces' fractal dimension and amplitude.

The remarkable mechanical properties of crumpled materials

Mechanics of crumpled materials

Crumpled materials exhibit unusual and as yet unexpained mechanical properties. Through the surprisingly complex morphologies of facets and ridges formed in the crumpling of paper into a ball or densser materials, very high strength to weight ratios can emerge.

Compressive performance of MAX phase composites

Compressive performance and crack propagation in MAX phase composites 

 

Here micro CT was used to reveal the structure performance relationships in metal/ceramic composites based on Ti2AlC / Al alloy combinations.

The results show the promise of infiltrated max phase materials in the production of high performance composites.
