Abstract:
The full elasticity tensor for nano-crystalline copper is derived in molecular simulations by performing numerical tests for a set of generated samples of the polycrystalline material. The results are analysed with respect to the anisotropy degree of the overall stiffness tensor resulting from the limited number of grain orientations and their spatial distribution. The dependence of the overall bulk and shear moduli of an isotropized polycrystal on the average grain diameter is analysed. It is found that while the shear modulus decreases with grain size, the bulk modulus shows negligible dependence on the grain diameter and is close to the bulk modulus of a single crystal. A closed-form mean-field model of effective elastic properties for a bulk nano-grained polycrystal with cubic grains, i.e. made of a material with cubic symmetry, is formulated. In the model all parameters are based on the data for a single crystal and on the averaged grain size without any need for additional fitting. It is shown that the proposed model provides predictions of satisfactory qualitative and quantitative agreement with atomistic simulations.

Abstract:
This work presents a new original formulation of the discrete element method (DEM) with deformable cylindrical particles. Uniform stress and strain fields are assumed to be induced in the particles under the action of contact forces. Particle deformation obtained by strain integration is taken into account in the evaluation of interparticle contact forces. The deformability of a particle yields a nonlocal contact model, it leads to the formation of new contacts, it changes the distribution of contact forces in the particle assembly, and it affects the macroscopic response of the particulate material. A numerical algorithm for the deformable DEM (DDEM) has been developed and implemented in the DEM program DEMPack. The new formulation implies only small modifications of the standard DEM algorithm. The DDEM algorithm has been verified on simple examples of an unconfined uniaxial compression of a rectangular specimen discretized with regularly spaced equal bonded particles and a square specimen represented with an irregular configuration of nonuniform-sized bonded particles. The numerical results have been verified by a comparison with equivalent finite elementmethod results and available analytical solutions. The micro-macro relationships for elastic parameters have been obtained. The results have proved to have enhanced the modeling capabilities of the DDEM with respect to the standard DEM.

Abstract:
A potentially new, single-atom thick semiconducting 2D-graphene-like material, called
Anisotropic-cyclicgraphene , has been generated by the two stage searching strategy linking molecular
and ab initio approach. The candidate was derived from the evolutionary-based algorithm and
molecular simulations was then profoundly analysed using first-principles density functional theory
from the structural, mechanical, phonon, and electronic properties point of view. The proposed
polymorph of graphene (rP16-P1m1) is mechanically, dynamically, and thermally stable and can
achieve semiconducting with a direct band gap of 0.829 eV.

Abstract:
Cermet Materials (CM), for example, WC/Co, have very good mechanical, thermal and wear properties. They are used for manufacturing of cutting tools. However, their behavior under dynamic loads is still not properly understood.
Experiments, e.g. Siegl and Fischmester (1988) and Ravichandran (1994), indicate that the fracture energy of
WC/Co is expended through ductile failure of the Co: (1) close to the binder/tungsten carbide interface (Liu et al., 2017) [64] or by (2) dimple rupture across the interphase (Sigl and Exner, 1987) [22]. Stress concentrations around grain boundaries lead to initiation of microcracks which are dispersed by dynamic loading.
The main goal of the paper is to investigate the previously formulated models of the two-phase composite (Sadowski et al., 2005, 2006, 2007; Dębski and Sadowski, 2014, 2017) [47–51] in the case of dynamic compressive
pulses that are common in the case of cutting tools. We have taken into account complex spatial distribution of cermet phases, grain/binder interfaces modeled by interface elements, possibility of cracks appearance within binders using interface elements as well, and rotation of brittle grains.
The obtained results show that microcracking process and stress distributions are different for quasi-static and dynamic loadings. Early development of microcracks distribution revealed by damage parameter was observed.

Abstract:
This paper presents an investigation on the detection of strain localization in numerical simulation of sheet metal forming. Two methods to determine the onset of localized necking have been compared. The first criterion, newly implemented in this work, is based on the analysis of the through-thickness thinning (through-thickness strain) and its first time derivative in the most strained zone. The limit strain in the second method, studied in the authors’ earlier works, is determined by the maximum of the strain acceleration. The limit strains have been determined for different specimens undergoing deformation at different strain paths covering the whole range of the strain paths typical for sheet forming processes. This has allowed to construct numerical forming limit curves (FLCs). The numerical FLCs have been compared with the experimental one. Mesh sensitivity analysis for these criteria has been performed for the selected specimens. It has been shown that the numerical FLC obtained with the new criterion predicts formability limits close to the experimental results so this method can be used as a potential alternative tool to determine formability in standard finite element simulations of sheet forming processes.

Abstract:
The performance of the present-day scanning electron microscopy (SEM) extends far beyond delivering electronic images of the surface topography. Oxide dispersion strengthened (ODS) steel is on of the most promising materials for the future nuclear fusion reactor because of its good radiation resistance, and higher operation temperature up to 750°C. The microstructure of ODS should not exceed tens of nm, therefore there is a strong need in a fast and reliable technique for their characterization. In this work, the results of low-kV SEM characterization of nanoprecipitates formed in the ODS matrix are presented. Application of highly sensitive photo-diode BSE detector in SEM imaging allowed for the registration of single nm-sized precipitates in the vicinity of the ODS alloys. The composition of the precipitates has been confirmed by TEM-EDS.

Abstract:
Multiple pipetting is a standard laboratory procedure resulting in the compartmentalisation of a liquid sample. Microfluidics offers techniques which can replace this process by the use of tiny droplets. Passive manipulation on droplets is an interesting and promising approach for the design of microfluidic devices which on one hand are easy-to-use and on the other, execute complex laboratory procedures. We present a comprehensive study of the geometry of microfluidic components which encode different operations on droplets into the structure of the device. The understanding of hydrodynamic interactions between the continuous flow and a droplet travelling through confined space of nontrivial microfluidic geometries is crucial for a rational and efficient design of new generation of modular microfluidic processors with embedded instructions.
