Latest Continuum mechanics Stories
Hit it hard and it will fracture like a solidâ€¦ but tilt it slowly and it will flow like a fluid.
Using a healthier hyperthermia, Virginia Tech engineering researchers and a colleague from India unveiled a new method to target and destroy cancerous cells without using chemotherapy.

Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have demonstrated a microminiaturized device that can make complex viscosity measurementsâ€”critical data for a wide variety of fields dealing with things that have to flowâ€”on sample sizes as small as a few nanoliters.
In a paper published in Nature, Huajian Gao and researchers from the University of Alabama and China report a new mechanism that governs the peak strength of nanostructured metals.
In a paper appearing in the Feb 24 issue of the Proceedings of the Royal Society of London A, Virginia Tech Engineering Science and Mechanics Professor Hassan Aref, and his colleague Johan Roenby at the Technical University of Denmark shed new light on the chaotic motion of a solid body moving through a fluid.
Researchers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have developed a way to make some notoriously brittle materials ductileâ€”yet stronger than everâ€”simply by reducing their size.

Magnetorheological (MR) fluids are smart materials whose flow/viscosity properties can be modified by applying an electric field. These changes in viscosity occur within a fraction of a millisecond â€“ far faster than conventional mechanical means â€“ and can be used to effectively control vibrations in applications dealing with actuation, damping, robotics and mechatronics.
