Fracture mechanics is one of the key research topics in our field (of mechanics) and has a rather rich history of innovation and applications. From earth-quakes to air-planes---the mechanics underpinning the phenomenon of materials falling apart has been essential in the development of technology.  Griffith’s work on fracture was published about a 100 years ago and is often widely regarded as the start of modern fracture mechanics.

Interface engineering for nanocomposite toughness enhancements

Phase field fracture modelling using quasi-Newton methods and a new adaptive step scheme

Dear iMechanicians,

I hope this paper is of interest to you. We show that quasi-Newton methods make monolithic phase field fracture implementations very robust. Convergence and computations times orders of magnitude smaller than the usual staggered approaches are demonstrated in complex problems such as unstable cracking, fatigue or dynamic crack branching.

Fatigue-resistant hydrogel adhesion

This is our recent work on the design of fatigue-resistant hydrogel adhesion. In this work, we show that fatigue-resistant hydrogel adhesion can be achieved by anchoring ordered nanocrystalline domains at the interface. This method is applicable to glass, ceramic, titanium, aluminum, stainless steel, and even elastomers including PU and PDMS. We also demonstrate its potential applications as endurant hydrogel coatings for versatile engineering materials with complex geometries.

Computing with non-orientable defects: nematics, smectics and natural patterns

Chiqun Zhang         Amit Acharya        Alan C Newell          Shankar C Venkataramani

 

Defects, a ubiquitous feature of ordered media, have certain universal features, independent of the underlying physical system, reflecting their topological, as opposed to energetic properties. We exploit this universality, in conjunction with smoothing defects by "spreading them out," to develop a modeling framework and associated numerical methods that are applicable to computing energy driven behaviors of defects across the amorphous-soft-crystalline materials spectrum. Motivated by ideas for dealing with elastic-plastic solids with line defects, our methods can handle order parameters that have a head-tail symmetry, i.e. director fields, in systems with a continuous translation symmetry, as in nematic liquid crystals, and in systems where the translation symmetry is broken, as in smectics and convection patterns. We illustrate our methods with explicit computations.
