Two new papers
A paper I worked on with JS Chen and Yuri Bazilevs' groups at UCSD is now availible online. It is about immersed meshfree methods for fluid structure interaction:
Bazilevs, Y., Moutsanidis, G., Bueno, J., Kamran, K., Kamensky, D., Hillman, M., Gomezc, H., Chen, J.S., A New Formulation for Air-Blast Fluid Structure Interaction Using an Immersed Approach. Part II: Coupling of IGA and Meshfree Discretizations, Computational Mechanics, 2017, doi:10.1007/s00466-017-1395-2.
A paper on studying damage between scales in concrete has also been accepted in the International Journal of Fracture:
Liang, S., Chen, J. S., Li, J. , Lin, S. P., Roth, M. J., Heard, W., Hillman, M., Numerical investigation of statistical variation of concrete damage between scales, International Journal of Fracture, accepted.
