Predicting high cycle and ultrasonic vibration fatigue with unified mechanics theory

The unified mechanics theory (UMT) is ab-initio unification of the second law of thermodynamics and Newton's universal laws of motion, in which Boltzmann's second law of entropy formulation governs dissipation & degradation. Hence, the unified mechanics theory does not require any empirical dissipation & degradation potential function or an empirical void evolution function. Material degradation is quantified on the Thermodynamic state index (TSI) axis based on the specific entropy production, which starts at zero and asymptotically approaches one at failure.

Post-doc 18 months - highly competitive European Space Agency - EMTD Lab post-doc position - Interdisciplinary Centre for Security and Trust

Dear Colleagues We are looking for a post-doctoral level researcher for a 18 month project in collaboration with a startup company EMTD lab and the European Space Agency. The work to be done is related to radiation shielding and fatigue fracture. We are looking for people with a background in polycrystalline fracture, phase field/enriched finite element methods and multi-scale methods. Knowledge of metallurgy and crystallography would be welcome. Due to confidentiality, we cannot divulge more information at this stage.

Phase field modelling in octave

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

Hi I tried to code a basic phase field model for fracture in octave.

It doesn't seem to converge to the correct load. It fails later.

Also mesh refinement did not improve the results.

The link to the GIT is here

https://github.com/dontcallmesuren/Phase-field-modelling.git

 

Any idea where I am wrong?

Ping me. Thanks in advance.

Compressive performance and crack propagation in Al alloy/Ti2AlC composites

The morphology of MAX phase composites is examined here. Specifically, crack branching is examined in Al - Ti2AlC composites showing the role of MAX phase distribution on the fracture performance of such materials. Ductile alloy phases serve to deflect cracks in the hard, yet tough, MAX phase.

Revisiting Nucleation in the Phase-Field Approach to Brittle Fracture

Twenty years in since their introduction, it is now plain that the regularized formulations dubbed as phase-field of the variational theory of brittle fracture of Francfort and Marigo (1998) provide a powerful macroscopic theory to describe and predict the propagation of cracks in linear elastic brittle materials under arbitrary quasistatic loading conditions. Over the past ten years, the ability of the phase-field approach to also possibly describe and predict crack nucleation has been under intense investigation.
