• (2003-06)
The main objective of this study is to counterpart numerical model and experimental studies for rotating flows associated with dough kneading, and validate the flow patterns generated. The flows considered are in a complex ...
• (2003-08)
This paper outlines experimental work concerned with the peeling of dough from solid surfaces. The findings of the programme are used to validate corresponding numerical simulations carried out at UW Swansea, with the ...
• (2007)
Imperfect transmission conditions modelling a thin 2D intermediate layer between two bonded materials in a dissimilar strip have been derived and analytically analysed in another paper of this issue. In this paper, the ...
• (2008-12)
Many classical rigid perfectly/plastic solutions cannot be extended to more complicated rigid plastic materials, such as rigid plastic hardening materials and rigid viscoplastic materials. The present paper reveals sources ...
• (2011-09-06)
A three-dimensional unilateral contact problem for thin viscoelastic layers bonded to rigid substrates shaped like elliptic paraboloids is considered. Two cases are studied: (a) Poisson's ratios of the layer materials are ...
• (2005-05-25)
It is shown that the solution of the semi-geostrophic equations for shallow-water flow can be found and analysed in spherical geometry by methods similar to those used in the existing \$f\$-plane solutions. Stable states in ...
• (2007-11)
We assess the stability of simple two-dimensional clusters of bubbles relative to small displacements of the vertices, at fixed bubble areas. The clusters analysed are: 1) flower clusters consisting of a central bubble of ...
• (2013-02)
The paper is concerned with the problem of a semi-infinite crack at the interface between two dissimilar elastic half-spaces, loaded by a general asymmetrical system of forces distributed along the crack faces. On the basis ...
• (2012-05-14)
The interaction of an interfacial crack with small impurities is analysed on the basis of an asymptotic formula derived by the authors. The interaction between the main crack and the defects (e.g. small cracks or inclusions) ...
• (2011)
We consider the laminar flow of a vortex crystal in the Corbino disk geometry. Laminar flow can be induced by thermal fluctuations melting the crystal, but also by shear stress after applying a large current at zero ...
• (2003-04)
It is shown how large-amplitude stability results for flows governed by potential-vorticity conservation can be obtained by geometric arguments using rearrangements of functions. The method allows for non-smooth solutions, ...
• (Springer Nature, 2009)
This review paper outlines several formulations for lattice structures where dynamic lattice Green's functions play an important role in analysis of localization near defects as well as fracture in structured media. The ...
• (2009-12)
We consider a Mode III lattice with an interface layer where the dynamic crack growth is caused by a localised sinusoidal wave. In the wave–fracture scenario, the ‘feeding wave’ (here also called the knife wave) delivers ...
• (2009)
Magnus effect consists in deflection of the trajectory of a rotating body moving in a gas. It is a direct consequence of the interaction between the body surface and the gas particles. In this paper, we study the so-called ...

• (2001-05-15)
A model is developed to describe the formation of metallic foams in which liquid drainage acts to collapse the foam before it can freeze. Numerical solution of the foam drainage equation, combined with the equations of ...
• (2010-04-27)
Candidates to the least perimeter partition of various polygonal shapes into N planar connected equal-area regions are calculated for N ≤ 42, compared to partitions of the disc, and discussed in the context of the energetic ...
• (2006-08-30)
Two-dimensional bidisperse foams were simulated in cyclic, uniaxial, extensional shear. Mixing of bubbles of different sizes only occurs at high strains, and once mixed, the bubbles do not segregate. For liquid fractions ...
• (2012-10-31)
We consider the quasi-static propagation of a Mode III crack along the interface in a bimaterial plane containing a finite array of small line defects (microcracks and rigid line inclusions). The microdefects are arranged ...
• (2012-05-14)
In this paper we are concerned with the problem of a crack lying at the interface between dissimilar materials with microstructure undergoing antiplane deformations. The micropolar behaviour of the materials is described ...
