Latest Deformation Stories
Johns Hopkins researchers have discovered that, under the right conditions, newly developed nanocrystalline materials exhibit surprising activity in the tiny spaces between the geometric clusters of atoms called nanocrystals from which they are made.
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.
DAVIS, Calif., Jan.
Applied mathematicians dissected the morphology of the plantain lily (Hosta lancifolia), a characteristic long leaf with a saddle-like arc midsection and closely packed ripples along the edges.
Crash tests often produce startling results. A new simulation process which factors in deformation during production as well as preliminary damage can predict the results of a crash test more accurately than ever.
By Phillion, A B Lee, P D; Maire, E; Cockcroft, S L Semisolid tensile testing combined with X-ray microtomography (XMT) was used to characterize the development of internal damage as a function of strain in an aluminum-magnesium alloy, AA5182.
By Fukuta, Satoshi Asada, Fumihito; Sasaki, Yasutoshi Abstract The impact of holes drilled into air-dried wood specimens was examined in a closed heating system on the deformation fixation process of compressed wood.
By Majumdar, Shrabani Bhattacharjee, D; Ray, K K The micromechanism of fatigue damage in an interstitial-free (IF) steel sheet has been studied using fully reversed stress amplitudes (Deltasigma/2).
By Mintz, B Gunawardana, W D; Su, H The influence of Al on the strength and impact properties of hot rolled plain C-Mn low S steels has been examined at two C levels, 0.02 and 0.1% and two N levels, 0.001 and 0.004-0.005% (where percentage is to be taken as wt-%).
