Mechanics of tension-induced film wrinkling and restabilization: a review

Wrinkling of thin films under tension is omnipresent in nature and modern industry, a phenomenon which has aroused considerable attention during the past two decades because of its intricate nonlinear behaviors and intriguing morphology changes.

2 Postdoc Positions: Nanoscale Mechanics of Surfaces and Interfaces

There are two openings for postdoctoral researchers in the research group of Prof. Tevis Jacobs in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science at the University of Pittsburgh. 


The purpose of the research effort is to understand the performance of advanced materials used in the semiconductor industry. Within this larger research effort, there are two sub-projects, each of which will be led by a different postdoctoral researcher. In both cases, the research will involve the following activities:

A phase field electro-chemo-mechanical formulation for predicting void evolution at the Li–electrolyte interface in all-solid-state batteries

Dear iMechanicians - I hope this is of interest. We develop a phase field-based electro-chemo-mechanical model for predicting void evolution and current hot-spots in all-solid-state batteries as a function of applied pressure, charge and material properties.

Discussion of fracture paper #34 - The Physics of Hydrogen Embrittlement

Hydrogen embrittlement causes problems that probably will become apparent to an increasing extent as hydrogen is taken into general use for energy storage and as a fuel for heating and electricity production. According to Wikipedia, the phenomenon has been known since at least 1875. The subject of this blog

Improved formulas of extensional and bending stiffnesses of rectangular nanorods

Improved formulas of extensional and bending stiffnesses of isotropic rectangular nanorods are derived. These formulas reduce to the existing widely used formulas for a special choice of material parameters, i.e., when the surface Poisson's ratio and the bulk Poisson's ratio match thus highlighting the limitation of the existing formulas.
