    The shear properties of brittle and highly porous carbon (graphitic) foam cannot be measured reliably with most standard test methods, such as single rail, double rail, Iosipescu shear, etc. A new testing device has been developed to accurately measure the shear stiffness and strength of carbon...

    The time-dependent dielectric breakdown (TDDB) of Cu damascene interconnects was investigated, noting the time variations in stress-induced leakage current. Copper interconnects normally have symmetric current-voltage curves, which suggests that defects are distributed symmetrically between two...

    A theory is presented for the mechanical response of porous media to high-strain-rate deformations. The model is "consistent" because each feature is incorporated in a manner that is mathematically compatible with all the other features. Unlike simple p-α models, the onset of pore collapse...

    The article demonstrates some advantages of the analysis of dimensionalities used to establish regularities in some limiting cases. The form of these regularities can be used for subsequent generalization and formulation of correct and adequate phenomenological relations. The methods used for...

    theory describing the effect that impurities have on the regularities of the plastic deformation of crystals in terms of dynamic strain aging is developed. This theory is a combination of two models, one of which describes the immobilization kinetics of individual dislocations due to the...

    Based on the phenomenological Landau-Devonshire theory, we investigate the effect of misfit strain on the electrocaloric effect of P(VDF-TrFE) copolymer thin films. Theoretical analysis indicates that the compressive misfit strain reduces the working temperature to a great extent where the...

    The toughness transition behavior of ferritic steel results from the fact that two competing fracture mechanisms can be activated independently or progressively. Temperature, strain rate and the material's hardening properties are the major influences affecting the result of this competition...

    The equation s=K⋵m, where s is the applied stress, ⋵ is the strain rate, K and m are material constants that depend on stress / strain rate, temperature and grain size is often used to describe structural superplasticity. The general shape of the logs-log⋵ curve is sigmoidal....

    The main objective of this contribution is to compare the Forming Limit Diagrams (FLDs) predicted by the use of two different vertex theories. The first theory is micromechanical and is based on the use of the Schmid law, within the framework of crystal plasticity coupled with the Taylor...
