Open access puts scientists in control of their own results

The last ESIS blog about how surprisingly few scientists are willing/able to share their experimental data, received an unexpectedly large interest. Directly after the publication another iMechanica blogger took the same theme but he put the focus on results produced at numerical analyses that are presented with insufficient information. While reading, my spontaneous guess was that one obstacle to do right could be the widespread use of commercial non-open codes.

Directional and oscillating residual stress on the mesoscale in additively manufactured Ti-6Al-4V


In this work, we were able to improve existing residual stress measurement capabilities so that we could measure smaller length scales. We were able to measure residual stresses that oscillated from build layer to build layer (0.5 mm thick) in an additively manufactured part. The oscillations persisted over nearly 30 layers!

Simulation of crack behavior of secondary particles in Li-ion battery electrodes during lithiation/de-lithiation cycles

The loss of connectivity in particle-based LiMO2 (M = Ni, Co, Al, and/or Mn) electrodes due to mechanical failure
and fracture at the interface between primary particles is one of the major causes of capacity fading in Li-ion
batteries (LIBs) after certain electrochemical cycles. In this study, a model of a secondary particle composed

A model updating procedure to enhance structural analysis in the FE code NOSA-ITACA This paper describes the model updating procedure implemented in NOSA-ITACA, a finite-element code for the structural analysis of masonry constructions of historical interest. The procedure, aimed at matching experimental frequencies and mode shapes, allows fine-tuning calculation of the free parameters in the model.

MMSLab-CNR's picture

Modal analysis of historical masonry structures: Linear perturbation and software benchmarking The mechanical behavior of masonry materials has a common feature: a nonlinear behavior with high compressive strength and very low tensile strength. As a consequence, old masonry buildings generally present cracks due to permanent loads and/or accidental events. Therefore, the characterization of the global dynamic behavior of masonry structures should take into account the presence of existing cracks.

Call for Abstract - Frontiers in Built Environment, Earthquake Engineering

Dear colleagues, Given the recent establishment of the so-called Urban Seismology field and the lack of dedicated journals for the topic, together with Professor Maria Todorovska (University of Southern California, USA), Dr. Riccardo Maria Azzara (INGV, Italy), Dr. Michele Palermo and Dr. Simonetta Baraccani (University of BOlogna, Italy), we would like to establish a network of researchers dealing with this very challenging topic.

Supporting high quality candidates in the coming MSCA-IF call

I am looking to support potential high quality candidates for the coming MSCA-IF call to join my group. The postdoc will work in my group (at University of Nottingham, Faculty of Engineering, Centre for Structural Engineering and Informatics) on an interdisciplinary subject related to materials science or computational mechanics of masonry or concrete structures (new or old materials are possible).
