Journal Club for June 2022: Computational mechanics for local-scale modelling of coastal hazards

In 2016, our colleague (Prof. Ahmad Elbanna) addressed one such extreme event (namely, earthquakes and the associate rupture physics). In this journal article, I will be focusing on two other extreme events, namely tsunamis and storm surges and some of the modelling efforts to address these coastal hazards.

Discussion of fracture paper #34 - The Physics of Hydrogen Embrittlement

Hydrogen embrittlement causes problems that probably will become apparent to an increasing extent as hydrogen is taken into general use for energy storage and as a fuel for heating and electricity production. According to Wikipedia, the phenomenon has been known since at least 1875. The subject of this blog

A consistent finite-strain plate model for wrinkling of stretched anisotropic hyperelastic films

Stretch-induced wrinkles usually occur in a thin, clamped-clamped, hyperelastic film and eventually disappear upon excess stretching, with wrinkling direction being perpendicular to the stretching direction within isotropic elasticity framework. Here, we consider in-plane anisotropy induced by infilling fibers in thin films, which significantly affects the orientation and amplitude of wrinkles.

Improved formulas of extensional and bending stiffnesses of rectangular nanorods

Improved formulas of extensional and bending stiffnesses of isotropic rectangular nanorods are derived. These formulas reduce to the existing widely used formulas for a special choice of material parameters, i.e., when the surface Poisson's ratio and the bulk Poisson's ratio match thus highlighting the limitation of the existing formulas.
