We have a new two-part paper in Computational Mechanics published, which discusses variational consistency and efficient stabilized nodal integration (Part I) in two-field problems (thermo-elasticity and finite strain thermo-plasticity), and also using the hyperbolic thermo-mechanical theories (Part I) for time integration with a uniform O(h) time step in explicit dynamics, with results indistinguishable from the classical theory:

Graduated my second PhD student today. I'm so proud of him. Right: Dr. Jiarui Wang! Check out his work on composite analysis here https://authors.elsevier.com/a/1dV4l_12dr5nCL…. A few more papers to come shortly!
New journal article published in CMAME on effortless (immersed) modeling of composite microstructures without tedious conforming FEM or cut quadrature cells: https://lnkd.in/eg2gvuj
