The plausibility of <c + a> dislocation slip on {-12-11} planes in Mg

Dear Colleagues,

Please see the link for a recent article published in Scripta Materialia. In this article, active cross-slip behavior of screw <c + a> dislocations in Mg is observed, and the plausibility of <c + a> dislocation slip on new planes {-12-11} that have hitherto not been considered possible, is shown for the first time.

Gradient elasticity theory for fiber composites with fibers resistant to extension and flexure

A model for the mechanics of an elastic solid, reinforced with bidirectional fibers is presented in finite plane elastostatics. The fiber’s resistance to stretch and flexure are accounted for with variational computations of first and second gradient of deformations, respectively. Within the framework of strain-gradient elasticity, the Euler equation and necessary boundary conditions are formulated. A rigorous derivation of the corresponding linear theory is also developed from which, a complete analytical solution is obtained for small deformations superposed on large.

3-Year Postdoctoral Fellow: Green Chemistry/Materials Chemistry

The required postdoctoral fellow will play a leading role in performing research leading to high-impact publications in the broad field of materials chemistry/crystal engineering. The postdoctoral fellow is expected to possess strong experimental research skills and ideally some computational materials modelling experience. The right candidate will spend most of their time in the laboratory where he/she will utilize their strong expertise in synthesis (organic or inorganic compounds) and materials chemistry/characterization in order to develop and validate a novel biosurfactant catalyzed mechanochemical remediation method for the green synthetic functionalization and conversion of persistent organic pollutants. In addition to performing research leading to high-impact publications in peer-reviewed materials chemistry journals, the postdoctoral fellow will work as part of a multidisciplinary team of molecular biologists, bioinformatics experts, chemists and chemical engineers in order to facilitate the deliverables of this exciting project.

Unified Mechanics Theory

I thought mechanics community would be interested in my presentation on Unified Mechanics Theory, where I modify Newton's Equations in a succint form to incorporate Thermodynamics into Newtons Laws, which presently they don't have. [is there any proof, ?Yes the new form of the Newton's Laws have been proven experimentally since 1997 and mathematically in 2016}. The Laws of Unified Mechanics are

Roll up your sleeves

When you push up your sleeves, wrinkles form, which eventually evolve into ridges (pictured). As familiar as you may be with this phenomenon, have you ever thought about its underlying mechanism? It involves the complex nonlinear mechanical behaviour of large deformations and surface instabilities, which in turn give rise to a sophisticated morphological evolution. And now, Yifan Yang and co-workers have revealed a hitherto unknown post-buckling behaviour that involves multiple bifurcation transitions (Phys. Rev.

A question regarding applying the boundary conditions in thin film peeling

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

Hello all,

As is my understanding that, in analytical models such as "Kendall Peeling Model", when they talk about peeling angle it is the angle at which the peeling force is applied (or am I wrong?). But when it comes to FE analysis, if we displace one end of the film at an angle by applying displacement boundary conditions on that end, the resulting forces are not along the same direction of the displacements. So, I am confused as to how to compare the FE results with that of the analytical models.

Thank you.

Modified multiplicative decomposition model for growth: Beyond the initial stress-free state

The multiplicative decomposition model is widely employed for predicting residual stresses and morphologies of biological tissues due to growth. However, it relies on the assumption that the tissue is initially in a stress-free state, which conflicts with the observations that any growth state of a biological tissue is under a significant level of residual stresses that helps to maintain its ideal mechanical conditions.

Bifurcation & Chaos in Nonlinear Structural Dynamics: Novel & Highly Efficient Optimal-Feedback Accelerated Picard Iteration Algorithms

A new class of algorithms for solving nonlinear structural dynamical problems are derived in the present paper, as being based on optimal-feedback-accelerated Picard iteration, wherein the solution vectors for the displacements and velocities at any time in a finitely large time interval are corrected by a weighted (with a matrix) integral of the error. We present 3 approximations to solve the Euler-Lagrange equations for the optimal weighting functions; thus we present 3 algorithms denoted as Optimal-Feedback-Accelerated Picard Iteration (OFAPI) algorithms-1, 2, 3.
