"How I published in a scientific journal at age 12"

Suganth Kannan writes writes about the inspiration behind his model for earthquake prediction – and what he learned on his (“tedious but worth it”) journey to publication



I heard a sound in my email Inbox. It was from the editor-in-chief of Elsevier's Engineering Failure Analysis journal. I opened the email and read that my paper was accepted to be published under some conditions for revisions per peer reviewer's comments.

VABS 3.6 Reduces Realistic Composite Blade Modeling to Seconds

AnalySwift, LLC, a leading provider of efficient high-fidelity modeling software for aerospace and energy composites and other advanced materials, announced today the release of VABS 3.6. This is the latest version of VABS, which is the tool of choice for efficient and accurate modeling of composite slender structures such as wind turbine blades, helicopter rotor blades, high aspect ratio wings, composite bridges, and other slender structural components.

I am working on a coupled fluid structure problem , precisley on the elasto-acoustic mode, of a system consist on a cube which define the fluid domain coupled with an elastic plate.

The boundry conditions is:

- all the face of the cube is regid only the face coupled with the plate

- the plate is simply supported at the interface

Elastoplastic Indentation Stress Field

This model has a simple closed-form analytical expression, matching with finite element results nearly perfectly.

Nonlinear stick-spiral model for predicting mechanical behavior of single-walled carbon nanotubes

(PRB,74,245428,2006)  Based on a molecular mechanics concept, a nonlinear stick-spiral model is developed to investigate the mechanical behavior of single walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs). The model is capable of predicting not only the initial elastic properties (e.g., Young’s modulus) but also the stress-strain relations of a SWCNT under axial, radial, and torsion conditions. The elastic properties, ultimate stress, and failure strain under various loading conditions are discussed and special attentions have been paid to the effects of the tube chirality and tube size. Some unique mechanical behaviors of chiral SWCNTs, such as axial strain-induced torsion, circumferential strain-induced torsion, and shear strain-induced extension are also studied. The predicted results from the present model are in good agreement with existing data, but very little computational cost is needed to yield them.
