(Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (UIUC), 200110)We present a theory for uniaxial nematic elastomers with variable asphericity. As an application of the theory, we consider the timeindependent, isochoric extension of a right circular cylinder. Numerical solutions to the ...

(Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (UIUC), 200311)We consider the question of whether a nematic elastomer crosslinked in an isotropic state and then subjected to an isochoric, homogenous deformation can exhibit a disclination. The theory that we use allows for the polymer ...

(1982)The interfacial crack in composite laminates has been of great interest as composite materials are widely used today. In this paper, the order of dynamic stress singularity of interfacial cracks is derived, and a hybrid ...

(Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (UIUC), 200407)We consider the problem of nonlinear steady convective flow in a horizontal dendrite layer during alloy solidification. We analyze the effect of permeability of the layer on the stationary modes of convection in the form ...
