A CONTINUUM DISLOCATION DYNAMICS FRAMEWORK FOR PLASTICITY OF POLYCRYSTALLINE MATERIALS
The objective of this research is to investigate the mechanical response of polycrystals in different settings to identify the mechanisms that give rise to specific response observed in the deformation process. Particularly ...
Manipulating neuronal activity with low frequency transcranial ultrasound
Stimulation of the rodent cerebral cortex is used to investigate the underlying biological basis for the restorative effects of slow wave sleep. Neuronal activation by optogenetic and ultrasound stimulation elicits changes ...
NANOSCALE STRENGTHENING MECHANISMS IN METALLIC THIN FILM SYSTEMS
Nano-scale strengthening mechanisms for thin films were investigated for systems governed by two different strengthening techniques: nano-laminate strengthening and oxide dispersion strengthening. Films were tested under ...
GRAPHITIC POLYMER NANOCOMPOSITES:WEAR PERFORMANCE AND WEAR DEBRIS ANALYSIS
With the addition of appropriate nanofillers, nanocomposites have been shown to be an effective avenue to achieve a multitude of enhanced properties, even extending to multi-functionalities not normally considered possible ...
TEXTURE INFORMED CRYSTAL PLASTICITY FINITE ELEMENT MODELING OF POLYCRYSTALLINE MATERIAL DEFORMATION
Metallic materials, such as aluminum, ferrite, magnesium, are used in a wide variety of applications such as structure components of automobiles and plane industry, due to its high strength and low density. It is of great ...
