Fatigue of Graphene

Materials can suffer mechanical fatigue when subjected to cyclic loading at stress levels much lower than the ultimate tensile strength, and understanding this behaviour is critical to evaluating long-term dynamic reliability. The fatigue life and damage mechanisms of two-dimensional (2D) materials, of interest for mechanical and electronic applications, are currently unknown. Here, we present a fatigue study of freestanding 2D materials, specifically graphene and graphene oxide (GO).

Journal Club for February 2020: Machine Learning in Mechanics: simple resources, examples & opportunities

Machine learning (ML) in Mechanics is a fascinating and timely topic. This article follows from a kind invitation to provide some thoughts about the use of ML algorithms to solve mechanics problems by overviewing my past and current research efforts along with students and collaborators in this field. A brief introduction on ML is initially provided for the colleagues not familiar with the topic, followed by a section about the usefulness of ML in Mechanics, and finally I will reflect on the challenges and opportunities in this field.

Effect of Wear on the Evolution of Contact Pressure at a Bimaterial Sliding Interface

The eigenfunction method pioneered by Galin (J Appl Math Mech 40: 981–986, 1976) is extended to provide a general solution to the transient evolution of contact pressure and wear of two sliding elastic half-planes, under the assumption that there is full contact and that the Archard–Reye wear law applies. The governing equations are first developed for sinusoidal profiles with exponential growth rates.
