Direct Tensile Test: Stability and Bifurcation
Unnotched specimens of quasibrittle materials that exhibit post-peak strain softening do not deform symmetrically in a direct tension test. The phenomenon (which is similar to the recently...

Compilation/Validation of Thermodynamic Data for Plutonium for Nuclear Waste Disposal: 1. Preliminary Results
A provisional thermodynamic database for plutonium has been compiled from a review of available data and other critical compilations. The database was compared to tabulations of Gibbs...

On Isotropic and Anisotropic Damage Variables in Continuum Damage Mechanics
The present work analyzes the implication and limitation of some 'scalar damage' models. In particular, the elastic-damage thermodynamic potential and the 'effective...

One Surface Model for Concrete with Non-Associated Damage Rule
The general formulation of a continuum theory for the inelasticity of concrete is derived. The internal theory of thermodynamics is used and the dissipation inequality is established....

Contact Problems in Cell Adhesion
Adhesion of biological cells plays an important role in many physiological processes. For instance, the adhesion of killer T-lymphocyte to its target cell is an essential step in cytolysis,...

Interaction of Microwave Radiation with Matter: a Thermodynamic Approach

Introduction of Variational Principle Into Open Channel Hydrodynamics
Possible applications of the variational principle maximizing the entropy are illustrated. Open channel flow properties are expressed in terms of 'entropy parameter',...

Modelling of Contaminant Transport in Clays Via Irreversible Thermodynamics
This study develops a model for the analysis and prediction of contaminant transport in soils using principles of irreversible thermodynamics. The developed model includes five parameters...
