Recently published work
  • Why fumed and precipitated silica have different mechanical behavior: Contribution of discrete element simulations
Left: Typical simulation: compaction of a silica powder bed to VIP core density followed by a tensile test. Odoemetric modulus E0 and strength σf are extracted from the simulation to characterize the mechanical behavior of the silica core produced by the compaction stage. Right: Scaling law between oedometric modulus E0 and relative density d for precipitated (PS) and fumed (FS) silica. From E. Guesnet et al., Journal of Non-Crystalline Solids, 524, 119646 (2019).

  • Elasticity and fracture of brick and mortar materials using discrete element simulations (Coll. LSFC)

Fracture behavior of a representative volume element of a bioinspired nacre-like material with brittle interfaces by DEM. Number of broken bonds per particles for the three cases of crack initiation and propagation. (a) Interface fracture initiation and propagation (b) Interface fracture initiation and tablet fracture propagation (c) Tablet fracture initiation and propagation. From K. Radi et al., Journal of the Mechanics and Physic of Solids, 126 101–116 (2019).

  • A growth model for the generation of particle aggregates with tunable fractal dimension

An original method is proposed to efficiently generate numerically aggregates with decreasing fractal dimension. E. Guesnet et al., Physica A: Statistical Mechanics and its Applications, 513 63–73 (2019).

  • Design of strain tolerant porous microstructures – A case for controlled imperfection (coll. R.Bordia, Clemson University)

Scaling laws for homogeneous porous microstructures obtained by partial sintering of ceramic powders.  (a) Scaling law for the relative Young's modulus. (b) Scaling law for the dimensionless fracture toughness. Z = coordination number; ab/R normalized neck size between particles. D. Jauffrès et al., Acta Materialia, 148 193–201 (2018).

  • Fast in-situ nanoimaging of particle sintering (coll. ESRF)

In situ X-ray nanotomography of glass particles sintering at 670°C. (a) 3D rendering of the investigated volume showing the growth of four segmented necks (I–IV). (b) Neck IV surface mesh displaying maximum principal curvature. (c) Neck radius versus time. a/R refers to the relative neck radius (neck radius: a, particle radius: R). The dashed vertical lines correspond to the 3D images in (a). (d) Comparison between experimental maximum principal curvature (symbols) and the tangent-circle approximation (dashed lines) as a function of the distance z from the neck plane. J. Villanova et al., Mat. Today 20, 354–359 (2017).
