Journal Club for October 2019: A Metamaterial Approach to Soft Robotics

Metamaterials are rapidly emerging at the frontier of science and engineering. Mechanical metamaterials, in particular, have been designed to show superior mechanical properties, such as ultrahigh stiffness and strength-to-weight ratio, or unusual properties, such as a negative Poisson’s ratio and a negative coefficient of thermal expansion.

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.

Riemannian and Euclidean Material Structures in Anelasticty

In this paper we discuss the mechanics of anelastic bodies with respect to a Riemannian and a Euclidean geometric structure on the material manifold. These two structures provide two equivalent sets of governing equations that correspond to the geometrical and classical approaches to nonlinear anelasticity. This paper provides a parallelism between the two approaches and explains how to go from one to the other. We work in the setting of the multiplicative decomposition of deformation gradient seen as a non-holonomic change of frame in the material manifold.

Ph.D. positions in Mechanical Engineering at University of Connecticut (UCONN)

The lab of Wave Engineering for eXtreme and Intelligent matTEr (We-Xite) has multiple openings for Ph.D. positions. We are looking for exceptional and highly motivated candidates with background in Engineering, Physics, Materials or Mathematics. The research will have a balance between experimental characterizations (non-destructive evaluation of samples fabricated using additive and subtractive methods), numerical simulations (finite element modeling and topology optimization) and analytical derivations (nonlinear dynamics of spring-mass systems).

Effects of solidification defects on nanoscale mechanical properties of rapid directionally solidified Al-Cu Alloy: A large scale molecular dynamics study

Directional solidification of Al-11 at % Cu is investigated by molecular dynamics (MD) simulations utilizing second nearest neighbor modified embedded atom method (2NN-MEAM) interatomic potential. The condition for directional solidification is produced by imposing dissimilar temperatures at the model boundaries along the [1 0 0] solidification direction to create a temperature gradient. During solidification, the solid-liquid front travels through the Al-Cu liquid along the [1 0 0] direction towards the high temperature end.
