SES-2019: Mechanics and Physics of Soft Materials -- Call for abstracts

Dear Colleagues:  the 56th Annual Technical Meeting of the Society of Engineering Science will be hosted by Washington University in St. Louis on October 13-15, 2019. As part of this meeting, we are organizing a Symposium (7.3) to address recent experimental, computational, theoretical and manufacturing advances in the research area of Mechanics and Physics of Soft Materials.

Ph.D. and Post-doc positions available at the Technion, Israel

Our group is part of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Techion – Israel Institute of Technology, located in Haifa, Israel.

We employ theoretical and experimental tools to understand the relations between the micro-structure and the macroscopic response of soft materials. Materials of interest include electro-active polymers, 3D printed lattice structures, biopolymers, and gels.

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

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.
