Energy-harvesting availability: An intrinsic "material-level" measure of piezoelectric energy harvesting performance

A new performance measure in piezoelectricity! This paper presents the notion of "energy-harvesting availability" -- an intrinsic material-level measure for piezoelectric energy-harvesting characterization. This contrasts with the prevailing approach of extrinsic characterization done at the structural or device levels.

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.
