The role of plastic strain gradients in the crack growth resistance of metals [code included]

I hope some of you will find our recent paper in the Journal of the Mechanics and Physics of Solids interesting. The Abaqus user element (UEL) subroutine developed to implement strain gradient plasticity theories with energetic and dissipative higher order stresses (Gudmundson 2004, Fleck and Willis 2009) can be downloaded from www.empaneda.com/codes

Steady-state fracture toughness of elastic-plastic solids: Isotropic versus kinematic hardening

I hope some of you may find this work interesting. We show that kinematic hardening effects play a significant role in monotonic/static fracture.

Crack Growth Resistance in Metallic Alloys: The Role of Isotropic Versus Kinematic Hardening

We have always modelled crack propagation under monotonic/static loading in metals assuming isotropic hardening. However, we show that anisotropic/kinematic hardening effects play a significant role due to non-proportional straining with crack advance; the isotropic hardening idealization leads to steady state fracture toughness predictions that could be 50% lower. I hope that some of you find this work interesting.

Reminder: 2018 Midwest Mechanics Workshop registration

Dear Colleagues,

This is a gentle reminder that the 2018 Midwest Mechanics Workshop will take place at IIT, Chicago on Thursday, August 9.  The deadline for registration is July 26, so we will have time to figure out the logistics. Note that registration is free for this one-day workshop. Please see:

PhD position in computational mechanics

We in Aalto University School of Engineering are looking for a doctoral student to work on numerical modelling of fragmentation of quasi-brittle materials. In more detail, you will study breakage and fragmentation of ice blocks. These phenomena occur under compressive loads in ice block to ice block contacts. The fragmentation process is complicated, and requires novel numerical modelling techniques. Modelling may need to be done on different scales, which may have to reach from very high resolution modeling to simplified contact models on larger scale.

Fatigue Fracture of Self-Recovery Hydrogels

Dear Colleagues,

Here is our recent paper “Fatigue Fracture of Self-Recovery Hydrogels”. To the hydrogel community, this paper distinguishes the fatigue fracture and the self-recovery of a hydrogel. To the mechanics community, we show that, for the first time in hydrogels, the fatigue threshold depends only on the covalent network, but not on the noncovalent interactions that provide dissipation.

PhD position in computational solid mechanics

Aalto University (Finland), Department of Mechanical Engineering, is looking for a doctoral student for a study on the breakage and fragmentation of ice blocks under compressive loads. The fragmentation process is complicated and requires the use of novel modelling methods that can be used reliably on different scales. In addition to the computational work, we will perform experiments on this topic.
