Latest Solid mechanics 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.
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.
U.S. scientists say they have developed a concrete material that can heal itself when it cracks with only water and carbon dioxide needed. University of Michigan researchers said all that is necessary to mend a damaged bridge would be a few drizzly days.
Metallic glass thatâ€™s stronger and lasts longer.
GARDEN CITY, Mich., March 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Consider how these outlooks could free you from stress: Things change if you change the way you look at them.Problems, most of the times, are only are in our head. "Thus I Became Stress Free, Oh Really?," a new book by Balram Joshi (published by iUniverse), can improve your outlook and capability to manage your stress and improve your productivity and happiness.
A U.S. researcher suggests those with high working memory and math ability may be those most affected by test stress. The study, published in Current Directions in Psychological Science, finds the subjects with the greatest capacity for math success were the most likely to choke under pressure.
The Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) is part of an international team of scientists that is learning more about how cracks form in brittle materials.
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,...
