Structure Genome: Fill the Gap between Materials Genome and Structural Analysis
29 Nov 2014 | Publications | Contributor(s): Wenbin Yu
A new concept, Structure Genome (SG), is proposed to fill the gap between materials genome and structural analysis. SG acts as the basic building block of the structure connecting materials to structures and the mechanics of SG governs the necessary information to link materials genome and...

A Unified Theory for Constitutive Modeling of Composites
18 Apr 2016 | Publications | Contributor(s): Wenbin Yu
A unified theory for multiscale constitutive modeling of composites is developed using the concept of structure genomes. Generalized from the concept of the representative volume element, a structure genome is defined as the smallest mathematical building block of a structure. Structure...
A Last Paper: An Equivalent Plate Modeling of Corrugated Structures
5.0 out of 5 stars
23 May 2014 | Publications | Contributor(s): Wenbin Yu, Zheng Ye, Victor Berdichevsky
An equivalent classical plate model of corrugated structures is derived using the variational asymptotic method. Starting from a thin shell theory, we carry out an asymptotic analysis of the strain energy in terms of the smallness of a single corrugation with respect to the characteristic length...
