Nonlocal Micromechanics of Composites of both Random and Periodic Structures (Background, Opportunities and Prospects)

An extended abstract dedicated to nonlocal (in the sense of either Eringen or Silling) micromechanics is attached. It can’t be considered as a review in any sense. It is just a personal vision on a new area of micromechanics, in particularly based on the author’s publications (references on hundreds related papers can be found in the referred publications). The style of the abstract is plausible rather than rigorous that willfully used by the author just for initiation of discussions in the new prospective area of micromechanics.

Nonlocal Instability Analysis of FCC Bulk and (100) Surfaces Under Uniaxial Stretching

The objective of this paper is to examine the instability characteristics of both a bulk FCC crystal  and a (100) surface of an FCC crystal under uniaxial stretching along a <100> direction using an atomistic-based nonlocal instability criterion.  By comparison to benchmark atomistic simulations, we demonstrate that for both the FCC bulk and (100) surface, about 5000-10000 atoms are required in order to obtain an accurate converged value for the instability strain and a converged instability mode.  The instability modes are fundamentally different at the surface as compared to the bul
