Designing Materials for Mechanical Invisibility Cloaks

[1]Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden

In solid mechanics, there is considerable interest in achieving “invisibility”. The applications in mechanics include protection of structures and parts of structures from potentially harmful transient waves and steady state vibrations. A suggested large scale application is that protection against seismic waves from earthquakes could be achieved by using cloaking to re-route the waves around ...

Viscoelastic Mechanical Analysis for High Temperature Process of a Soda-Lime Glass Using COMSOL Multiphysics

R. Carbone[1]
[1]Material and Production Engineering Department, University of Naples “Federico II”, Naples, Italy

Glasses are widely used in the modern industry. For high temperature the glass behaves very much like a Newtonian liquid with temperature-dependent viscosity. The goal of this study is to set a numerical procedure in order to study the glass forming process of soda-lime glasses used in the automotive field by means numerical simulations.

Aus technischen, ökologischen und ökonomischen Gründen nimmt die Dauerhaftigkeit von Stahlbetonbauwerken in der heutigen Zeit einen immer größeren Stellenwert ein. Schadensursachen an solchen Bauwerken werden oft durch chemisch-physikalische Prozesse, wie z.B. den kapillaren Transport betonaggressiver Wässer in die Betonrandzone, hervorgerufen. Um nun die Dauerhaftigkeit bzw. die ...

Stress Field Simulation for Quantitative Ultrasound Elasticity Imaging

L. Yuan[1] and P.C. Pedersen[1]
[1]Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Worcester, Massachusetts, USA

Finite element models using COMSOL Multiphysics and MATLAB were developed to solve the problem of stress distribution interior homogeneous, isotropic, incompressible elastic solid material under known vertical external compression with a rectangular contact surface. Moreover, comparison between these results and analytical solutions was used to further validate that stress drops off with ...

Optimization of a High-Temperature High-Pressure Direct Wafer Bonding Process for III-V Semiconductors

R. Martin, J. Kozak, K. Anglin, and W. Goodhue
University of Massachusetts Lowell
Lowell, MA

Many optoelectronic devices utilize a heterojunction of a pair semiconducting materials including high-efficiency MEMS devices, solar cells, LEDs, and VCSELs. One fabrication technique which achieves such a device is direct wafer fusion. To optimize the process, COMSOL Multiphysics 4.0 was used to test various geometric configurations of the fixture. 2D and 3D models were created in order ...

Calculus of the Elastic Properties of a Beam Cross Section

A. Genoese[1], A. Genoese[1], and G. Garcea[1]
[1]Dipartimento di Modellistica per l'Ingegneria, Università della Calabria, Arcavacata di Rende, CS, Italy

Saint-Venant general rod theory is used to calculate the elastic factors of a section through the numerical solution of a system of partial differential equations. The elastic properties so evaluated are used in a geometric nonlinear analysis of 3D beam structures with general cross-section to calculate some important quantities such as the stiffness matrix. Linear solutions, such as the ...

An Analysis of Plunger Temperature during Glass Parison Pressing

P. Ngankeu[1], and E. Gutierrez-Miravete[2]

[1]EMHART Glass Research Inc, Windsor, CT, USA
[2]Rensselaer at Hartford, Hartford, CT, USA

The press and blow (P&B) process is widely used to produce glass containers. While the P&B process has demonstrated to be capable of reducing container weight by as much as 33%, it can also induce the formation of micro-checks that weaken container strength. This paper presents a model of the heat transfer due to the intermittent contact of glass with the plunger during several pressing ...

Simulation Studies on Stress Generation and Volume Expansion due to Electrochemical Lithium Insertion in a Silicon Nanowire

G. Sikha, and J. Gordon
Applied Materials, Inc.
Santa Clara, CA

Silicon electrodes are presently being pursued as the potential negative electrode for lithium-ion batteries owing to its high gravimetric (mAh/g) and volumetric capacity (mAh/L) compared to the existing state of the art graphite electrode. Recent experimental studies have demonstrated the use of nano size Si electrodes which minimizes insertion induced stresses due to facile strain ...

Modeling Fluid-Induced Porous Scaffold Deformation

J. Podichetty Thribhuvan[1], S.V. Madihally[1]
[1]Oklahoma State University, Stillwater, OK, USA

Utilization of bioreactors to regenerate tissues outside the body has been intensely investigated in functional tissue engineering. Various studies have been performed using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to understand fluid flow within bioreactors while assuming porous scaffold as a rigid structure. However, the physical and mechanical properties of most tissue engineering scaffolds suggest ...

FEMLAB analysis of open aluminium foam in compression

Nygaard, J.V.
Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO) Aarhus University, The Faculty of Science, Ny Munkegade, Aarhus C, Denmark.

The analysis of the mechanical properties of bi-continuous structures has been problematic due to the complex geometry that describes these materials. In this study a method which identifies and quantifies the geometrical elements within the structure will be presented. A sample is in-situ compressed and its deformation is compared with the results of a FEMLAB finite element model. Initially, ...
