Recently, more and more trash ADs appear at imechanica. The users like "ORDER CIALIS ONLINE - US DRUGSTORE FDA" have added the ADs at the comments. Is there any good method for us to prevent such behavior at imechanica? As one of the moderator, may I have the right to directly give such users name to system operator to prevent these trash ADs?
Any comments are welcome.
The surface stability of thin film/substrate system is an important problem both in the film synthesis and reliability of micro electrical and mechanical system (MEMS). In this work, the elastic anisotropy effect on surface stability of thin film/substrate system was considered. The theoretical analysis indicates that elastic anisotropic influence could play an important role in the surface stability of thin film/substrate system.
Here is a recent work on the Poisson's ratio of carbon nanotube sheet . From the experimental results, the researchers found that the Poisson's ratio could change from 0.06 to -0.20 as the content of MWNTs increasing from 0~100%. The interesting zero Poisson's ratio and auxetic materials were thus found.

Many studies on the thin film/substrate structure and its failure mechanism were reported in recent years. The direct experimental results of thin film/substrate structure by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) presents an intriguing problem:there exists a buckling failure mechanism at the lateral edge of metal film under pure bending. The qualitative theoretical analysis has been done on such buckling failure of thin film/substrate structure. The experimental results and theoretical analysis are helpful to understand the extrinsic stresses or deformations that are induced by external physical effects. Accepted by Appl. Phys. Lett.

Recently, I have seen a quit interesting article as follow:
Abstract: Dragonfly wings, which consist of the veins and membranes, are highly specialized flight organs adapted to cope with the individual flight behavior of each dragonfly. Therefore, it is important and necessary from a bionic view that the investigation on microstructure of elements how to affect their mechanical behaviors. In this study, we focus on effects of microstructure on mechanical characteristics of dragonfly wing vein. These results indicate that the microstructure of vein is a complex sandwich structure due to being obviously superior to one typical material, which consists of chitin shell and protein meat with some fibrils. This sandwich structure can be subjected to the rather greater bending loading and torsional deformation based on the von Mises stress and flexural deformation analysis of finite element method (FEM). They assist us to understand and design the new high strength-to-weight ratio of composite materials or structure.

Recently, I am interested in the interface between two different masses. But, I don’t know how to characterize the interface between them, especially the adhesive strength and the mechanics model.

Recently, I have written a paper about the relationship between the dragonfly’s microstructure and the load response. It is analyzed by the experiments and FEM. But when I finished the paper, I find that it is difficult to select a proper journal to submit this paper. Although I have seen many papers about this problem, it is not proper for some of them or the others are so high such as Science. So I want to ask a question “how to select a proper journal to submit your paper?” Thank you!
