Modeling the Mechanics of Cooking Spaghetti

Dear Colleague,

In case you are getting tired of the holiday fare, you might enjoy a recent paper, coauthored with Nate Goldberg, on modeling the mechanics of spaghetti cooking that has just been published in Physical Review E:

(Reminder: Due 30th November, 2019) Call for Nominations for the Eshelby Mechanics Award for Young Faculty

It is my pleasure to solicit nominations for the "Eshelby Mechanics Award for Young Faculty". This award, launched in 2012, is given annually to rapidly emerging junior faculty who exemplify the creative use and development of mechanics. The intent of the award is to promote the field of mechanics, especially among young researchers. While interdisciplinary work that bridges mechanics with physics, chemistry, biology and other disciplines is encouraged, the ideal awardee will demonstrate clear inspiration from mechanics in his/her research.

The unknown paper by M. T. Huber

More often than not I find in the books I read the information about the von Mises yield cirterion without mentioning any contribution of Maksymilian Tytus Huber in this field. E. g. I'm reading now "Materials for Nuclear Plants" by Wolfgang Hoffelner. When discussing the yielding conditions of the material he refers to von Mises, Hencky and even to Maxwell, but does not mention Huber. M. T. Huber anticipated to some extent the criterion of Mises already in 1904 (von Mises published his paper in 1913), but is not recognized by most of mechanicians.

ABAQUS - the influence of changing kinematic and cycling hardening parameters

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

Hello,

 

I have recently done a simple hourglass model to check the influence of hardening parameters in Abaqus. The reason was the effects of the parameters' change in bigger models were a bit surprising, therefore I needed to investigate the reason using some simpler model. Please see file 1.

 

After performing tension/compression cycles I got results as shown in files 2, 3, 4 and 5. Please note that only the hardening parameter in the description changes, the other three stays the same for each series.

Obituary for prof. Paul Paris the inventor of the fatigue crack propagation "Paris' law"

I do not think in Imechanica there has been an obituary for Paul Paris, whose work in fatigue crack propagation is extraordinary and one of the few important and lasting contributions ----- today our aircrafts, both civil and military, all rely on "damage tolerance", which is based on Paris' law.   Paris' law, as every great innovations, was published in 1961 only after rejection by three of the leading journals in the fracture mechanics field.  It bears the name of "law" although of course it is not like Newton's law.  It is a power law, based perhaps on what Barenblatt calls "incomplete"
