Freeze casting of novel materials

Freeze casting presents exciting new avenues towards high performance materials with aligned pore structures.

Bone scaffolds, highly elastic composites and nacre mimetic materials can all be produced by means of freeze casting methods. 

This comprehensive review presents recent development in terms of materials and processing

Hard-magnetic Elastica

Stroke is #1 cause of long-term disability and #4 cause of death in the US. Most of the patients are not treated in time due to unavailability of professional neurosurgeons on site. We have developed a ferromagnetic soft continuum robot for tele-operated and autonomous navigation and treatment of strokes. The foundation is the hard-magnetic elastica theory which offers a fast and accurate prediction of the large deformation of the ferromagnetic soft continuum robot.

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.

Frontal vs. bulk polymerization of fiber-reinforced polymer-matrix composites

Dear colleagues,

This paper on  comparison between frontal and bulk polymerization of polymer matrix compositres using a non-dimensional solver is published in Composite Science and Technology. If you would like to take a look, full paper is avaiable at the publisher and Researchgate.

Discovery and design of soft polymeric bio-inspired materials with multiscale simulations and artificial intelligence

https://doi.org/10.1039/D0TB00896F It is my privilege and honor to be highlighted as the Journal of Material Chemistry B's Emerging Investigators for 2020. Together with our group's young budding scientists, Chenxi Zhai, Tianjiao Li, and Haoyuan Shi, we review the discovery and design of next-generation bio-inspired materials by harnessing the virtual space in materials design: materials omics (materiomics), materials informatics, computational modelling and simulations, artificial intelligence (AI), and big data.

USACM Virtual Seminar Series this Summer

The USACM has established a virtual seminar series that will run for six weeks over the course of this summer.  Exact dates and times will vary each week, but a full listing of the speakers is available here:

https://www.usacm.org/seminar-series

The series features young computational mechanicians from across the US.  The talks are an opportunity for these young scientists to showcase their research activities during a period in which so many conferences and meetings are being cancelled or postponed.

Generalised boundary conditions for hydrogen transport at crack tips

Dear iMechanicians,

I hope the present work is of interest to you. We present a new formulation for resolving the electrochemical-diffusion interface in hydrogen embrittlement modelling

Intrinsic-to-extrinsic transition in fracture toughness through structural design: A lesson from nature

Published in Extreme Mechanics Letters: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.eml.2020.100685. Catastrophic failure of materials and structures due to unstable crack growth could be prevented if fracture toughness could be enhanced at will through structural design, but how can this be possible if fracture toughness is a material constant related to energy dissipation in the vicinity of a propagating crack tip.
