Characterizing fracture stress of defective graphene samples using shallow and deep artificial neural networks

Abstract: Advanced machine learning methods could be useful to obtain novel insights into some challenging nanomechanical problems. In this work, we employed artificial neural networks to predict the fracture stress of defective graphene samples. First, shallow neural networks were used to predict the fracture stress, which depends on the temperature, vacancy concentration, strain rate, and loading direction.

Nonlinear Mechanics of Thermoelastic Accretion

In this paper, we formulate a theory for the coupling of accretion mechanics and thermoelasticity. We present an analytical formulation of the thermoelastic accretion of an infinite cylinder and of a two-dimensional block.

Fracture mechanics is one of the key research topics in our field (of mechanics) and has a rather rich history of innovation and applications. From earth-quakes to air-planes---the mechanics underpinning the phenomenon of materials falling apart has been essential in the development of technology.  Griffith’s work on fracture was published about a 100 years ago and is often widely regarded as the start of modern fracture mechanics.

Phase field fracture modelling using quasi-Newton methods and a new adaptive step scheme

Dear iMechanicians,

I hope this paper is of interest to you. We show that quasi-Newton methods make monolithic phase field fracture implementations very robust. Convergence and computations times orders of magnitude smaller than the usual staggered approaches are demonstrated in complex problems such as unstable cracking, fatigue or dynamic crack branching.
