Topics of papers include cyclic stress-strain behavior and thermomechanical effect in metal matrix composites, thermal shock and thermal fatigue in ferroelectric thin film due to pulsed laser heating, a symplectic solution for a plan couple stress problem, and surface electrode problems in piezoelectric materials.
It is well known that during injection molding polymer melt is subjected to complex thermomechanical effects including the variation in How stress and thermal gradients across the sample thickness; it inevitably gives rise to the formation of a hierarchical structure, i.
