## Dynamic Equilibrium Equations in Unified Mechanics Theory

Thu, 2022-12-22 11:49 - Hsiao-Wei LeeTraditionally dynamic analysis is done using Newton’s universal laws of the equation of motion. According to the laws of Newtonian mechanics, the x, y, z, space-time coordinate system does not include a term for energy loss, an empirical damping term “C” is used in the dynamic equilibrium equation. Energy loss in any system is governed by the laws of thermodynamics. Unified Mechanics Theory (UMT) unifies the universal laws of motion of Newton and the laws of thermodynamics at ab-initio level.

## Predicting high cycle and ultrasonic vibration fatigue with unified mechanics theory

Mon, 2022-12-12 14:48 - Hsiao-Wei LeeThe unified mechanics theory (UMT) is ab-initio unification of the second law of thermodynamics and Newton's universal laws of motion, in which Boltzmann's second law of entropy formulation governs dissipation & degradation. Hence, the unified mechanics theory does not require any empirical dissipation & degradation potential function or an empirical void evolution function. Material degradation is quantified on the Thermodynamic state index (TSI) axis based on the specific entropy production, which starts at zero and asymptotically approaches one at failure.

## Modeling fatigue of pre-corroded metals with unified mechanics theory

Thu, 2022-12-08 11:43 - Hsiao-Wei LeeThe unified mechanics theory (UMT) was used to develop a model to predict the fatigue life of pre-corroded steel samples with BCC structure. Details of the experimental validation are also provided.
