Thin gold wires often used in high-end electronic applications are wonderfully flexible as well as conductive.
DENVER, Aug. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Psychological Association says stress costs corporations $300 billion a year in absences, medical costs, lost productivity and turnover. But this doesn't have to happen. "You perceive situations as threatening every day.
Hohai University in Nanjing has established a research tradition in hydraulic engineering over the last 95 years.
A new type of damage-tolerant metallic glass, demonstrating a strength and toughness beyond that of any known material, has been developed and tested by a collaboration of researchers.
ST. LOUIS, Dec.
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 research published in the March 4 issue of the journal Nature, Northeastern University physicists have pioneered the development of large-scale computer simulations to assess how cracks form and proliferate in materials ranging from steel and glass to nanostructures and human bones.
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.
Computational Mechanics is a scientific journal founded in 1986 and published monthly by Springer. The journal covers all aspects of computational mechanics and reports original research in the field. It focuses on areas that involve the rational application of mechanics, mathematics, and numerical methods in the practice of modern engineering. Areas covered include solid and structural mechanics, multi-body system dynamics, constitutive modeling, inelastic and finite deformation response,...
