Dynamic Equilibrium Equations in Unified Mechanics Theory

Traditionally dynamic analysis is done using Newton’s universal laws of the equation of motion. According to the laws of Newtonian mechanics, the x, y, z, space-time coordinate system does not include a term for energy loss, an empirical damping term “C” is used in the dynamic equilibrium equation. Energy loss in any system is governed by the laws of thermodynamics. Unified Mechanics Theory (UMT) unifies the universal laws of motion of Newton and the laws of thermodynamics at ab-initio level.

Dynamic Modelling of a Hydraulic Engine Mount Including the Effects of Elastomer Aging

In this article, the effect of material aging of an elastomeric main spring (MS) inside a hydraulic engine mount (HEM) on its dynamic performance is investigated. A set of HEMs aged under realistic operational conditions are used to create an empirical material aging model of the elastomer at two different temperatures (35°C and 95°C) using dynamic mechanical thermal analysis (DMTA).

Educational iPad app on structural mechanics

I would like to share with fellow mechanicians an educational iPad app I recently developed. The name of the app is Truss Me! and the main goal is to help students, all the way from high school to college, to build intuition on how truss structures behave. The video below highlights some features of the app:

Faculty Position in Engineering Science & Mechanics at Virginia Tech

The Department of Engineering Science and Mechanics (ESM) at Virginia Tech seeks applicants for a tenure-track or tenured faculty position in the general area of dynamical systems with applications to mechanics. Appointment will be at the rank of assistant, associate or full professor. Exceptionally qualified candidates may also be eligible for a named professor appointment.

Molecular Dynamics from Solid Mechanics Point of View

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

I am searching for a tutorial or a book which looks into molecular
dynamics method from a Solid Mechanics point of view. All I can find are
the books written for biophysicists or chemistry. I can find lot of
examples on fluids, biomolecules or polymers but none of them are on
simple solids or metals.

Can anyone suggests me a book or a tutorial which can get me ready to
write a program to simulate a simple tensile test of a metal wire (FCC
Al or some simple crystal).
