    We simulated the shear slide behavior of typical mixed HMX-olefin systems and the effect of thickness of olefin layers (4-22 Ã…) on the behavior at a molecular level by considering two cases: bulk shear and interfacial shear. The results show that: (1) the addition of olefin into HMX can...

    Epitaxial liftoff is an alternative to lattice-mismatched heteroepitaxial growth. Multilayer AlxGa1-xAs epitaxial films are separated from their growth substrates by undercutting an AlAs release layer in HF acid (selectivity >=108 for x≤0.4). The resulting AlxGa1-xAs films tend to bond by...

    We present a method for inducing and controlling van der Waals torques between two parallel slabs using a constant magnetic field. The torque is calculated using the Barash theory of dispersive torques. In III-IV semiconductors such as InSb, the effect of an external magnetic field is to induce...

    The thermal buckling of an armchair double-walled carbon nanotube (DWCNT), which is subjected to axial compression due to temperature rise, is derived and analyzed based on Timoshenko beam model, including transverse shear deformation and rotary inertia. According to the analysis, the effect of...

    I have studied the shear mixing of bidisperse collections of cohesive particles in an effort to develop models that would allow one to predict and control the homogeneity of particle composites. The focus has been on the effects of inter-particle cohesion and shear rate on the microstructure of...

    Particulates can strongly influence interfacial adhesion between rough surfaces by changing their average separation. In a cantilever beam adhesion test structure, a compressive zone exists just beyond the crack tip, which may act to deform such particles. To explore this phenomenon...
