Abstract

Technology advances have enabled modification of the size and shape of the electronic components to the microscale, with commensurate scaling down of their power requirements to milliwatts and microwatt range. Consequently, many complex electronic systems and devices such as wearable [...]

Abstract

Within the framework of Continuum Damage Mechanics some isotropic scalar damage models for concrete are revisited, with emphasis on a recent one proposed by the authors. This scalar damage model is based on the assumption that a stress split is required to capture the unilateral [...]
