  1. Structures, Models, & Assumptions

    Terms like Euler-Bernoulli beam or Timoshenko beam are often used in the literature or technical communications. I personally think these terms are confusing because they use a model along with its associated assumptions to name a structure. Actually a beam structure is a solid with its...

  2. RVE Analysis vs Mechanics of Structure Genome

    RVE analysis is a popular method for micromechanical modeling of heterogeneous materials. It can be used to perform a homogenization analysis to obtain effective properties and it can also be used to perform a dehomogenization analysis to obtain the local fields and failure of the material. Its...
