Collapse Surfaces Of The Octet-Truss Lattice At Different Lattice Angles
Cellular materials are found extensively in nature such as wood, honeycomb, butterfly wings and foam-like structures like trabecular bone and sponge. This class of materials proves to be structurally-efficient by combining ...
Material Properties Of 3D Printed Parts: Challenges In Design And Analysis
The present paper addresses the challenges in design and analysis of 3D printed structures with anisotropic material properties. In recent years the additive manufacturing technologies have been used in most of the industries ...
High Strain-Rate Behavior Of Mechanoluminescent Material Dispersed In A Soft Polymer Matrix
Mechanoluminescence (ML) is the emission of light from a solid material in response to mechanical stimuli . Mechanoluminescent materials are classified based on the types of stress activation required for luminescence ...
Preparing and Coordinating Undergraduate Engineering Design Projects
Design projects have become common in engineering classrooms. Earlier exposure to and training in the design engineering process hold much value for an enriched experience and an in-depth understanding of engineering design. ...
A Novel Finite Strain Visco-Hyperelasticity Based Constitutive Model For Elastomers
A novel three-dimensional finite strain viscohyperelastic constitutive model is proposed to capture the strain rate dependency of rubber-like materials. The overall material behavior is defined by cumulative description ...
The Effect Of High Strain Rate On The Piezo-Resistance Of Polydimethylsiloxane With Carbon Nanotubes
This paper describes the piezoresistive properties of a nanocomposite made of polydimethylsiloxane and multi- walled carbon nanotubes that is subjected to high strain rate. We highlight the production process of the ...

A Higher Order Theory Of Beams And Its Application To The Mems/Nems Analysis And Simulations
A higher order theory for beams based on expansion of the two dimensional (2-D) equations of elasticity into Legendre’s polynomials series has been developed. The 2-D equations of elasticity have been expanded into Legendre’s ...
The Influence of Powder Size and Packing Density on the Temperature Distribution in Selective Laser Melting
Metal powder properties in Selective Laser Melting (SLM) is among one of the most important factors when implementing new alloy developments for the equipment. In fact, not all commercially available metal powder alloys ...
Towards A Conceptual Model Of Design Team Learning In Mechanical Engineering Education
Design education is the backbone of the undergraduate Mechanical Engineering (ME) curriculum at Lassonde School of Engineering (LSE). ME students take project-based design courses every year of their program. Students in ...
