(Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (UIUC), 200307)We use a continuum model to investigate the isochoric axial contraction and expansion of a right circular cylindrical specimen composed of a nematic elastomer that is crosslinked in a uniaxial state and then annealed. ...

(Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (UIUC), 200401)We present a theory for the chemicallyinduced volume transitions of hydrogels. Consistent with experimental observations, we account for a sharp interface separating swelled and collapsed phases of the underlying polymer ...

(Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (UIUC), 200305)By studying the asympototic connection between phasefield and sharpinterface theories for transitions between two phases distinguished only by their constant freeenergy densities, we show that the configurational force ...

(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), 200210)A direct numerical simulation (DNS) is used to study the effect of a freestream isotropic turbulent flow on the drag and lift forces on a spherical particle. The particle diameter is about 1.5 to 10 times the Kolmogorov ...

(Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (UIUC), 200207)Working with the context of a theory proposed recently by Fried et al. (2001), we consider a onedimensional problem involving granular mixture of K > 2 discrete sizes bounded below by an impermeable base, above by an ...

(Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (UIUC), 200112)Acceleration is a fundamental quantity in fluid mechanics because it reflects the sum of all forces (pressure and viscous) present within the flow. However, measurements of acceleration have been difficult to achieve ...

(Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (UIUC), 200206)We use a continuum model to investigate the isochoric radial expansion of a right circular cylindrical specimen composed of a nematic elastomer that is crosslinked in a uniaxial state and then annealed. Numerical solutions ...

(Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (UIUC), 200107)A theory of stationary particle size distributions in coagulating systems with particle injection at small sizes is constructed. The size distributions have the form of power laws. Under rather general assumptions, the ...
