## Mechanics is really cool

hello fellow and future engineers/mechanicians i just want to say that I think mechanics is really cool and especially taught by Henry Tan! I hope this gets me a few points ;-)

## Heisenberg Model and Ising Model

when we talk about magnetism, we use Ising Model or Heisenberg model

if possible can you give me some suggestion about these two model for (one dimensional, two dimensional)

## Teaching Mechnical Engineering in iMechanica is an Engineering topic or an Education one, or even a Management Strategy

To Henry and All,

To Henry and All,Regarding to Henry's distinguish idea about Teaching Mechanics in iMechanica, I am wondering is it an Mechanical topic or an Education one, or even a Management Strategy? The same phenomenon does not only exist in Mechanics education but also in all engineering fields.

Why we struggle Engineering teaching?

## Homework

can anyone sove this?

## ES 240 (Fall 2007) Homework 1-5

This problem set is due on Friday, Sep. 28, 2007 in class.

## ES 240 (Fall 2007) Lecture Notes - Elements of Elasticity

The lecture notes are prepared by Prof. Joost Vlassak based on a set of course notes put together by Prof. Suo when he taught ES 240 in 2006, as well as on course notes developed by Prof. Vlassak for ES 246.

## Abaqus user element

I am working on finite element formulation of thermopiezoelectric shell element. i want to incorporate it in Abaqus software as a project work. i would like to know how to add the new element in abaqus.how can i add? Pls do help

## using iMechanica in teaching Engineering Mechanics

Why iMechanica?

iMechanica is an appropriate website for teaching/learning Engineering Mechanics for the following reasons:

## The efficiency of turbines

Hello students (and also others) at iMechanica,

Last weekend, while channel browsing on TV, I happened to notice a documentary on the Hoover dam (in the US). It showed a number of jets of water, huge ones, forcefully springing forth out of the rock faces just downstream of the dam. These were the water jets coming off the electricity generation plant of the dam, *after* their job of generating electricity was already over.

## modelling of friction welding process using abaqus

I am a postgraduate student studying in india.I am doing my project in friction welding . I have to create a finite element model of friction welding process and then simulate it to get the shortening distance.I am new to ABAQUS so help me by sening the procedure for creating a finite element model of friction welding process and then simulating it .

## Interesting Material: d3o

I came across this web page recently, and it talks about a novel product d3o that can control impact effects by adjusting molecular structure in case of shock loads. If this material becomes a regular apparel material, we may see many Jackie Chans in the future. The material is d3o.

I don't know if you guys knew of this. I guess you do. Is this material really the way it is advertised, or some boasting included?

## Looking for suggestions and comments on PhD research Project

Dear Researchers and Industry Engineers,

In this letter I am looking for some comments and industrial supports for my PhD research on non-contact measurement for machinery maintenance.

## The Scientific Research Potential of Virtual Worlds

Recently, I have seen a quit interesting article as follow:
