Modeling sintering without constitutive equations

By Eileen De Guire / February 15, 2012

Schematics of  linking of macroscopic and mesoscopic structure levels in the direct multi-scale modeling approach, which eliminates the use of constitutive equations. Credit: JACerS; Wiley. Sintering is among the most fundamental and important processes applied to ceramic materials. In its essentials, it is simple: It’s densification by heating. The details, however, are complicated, and modeling…

Optimizing YBCO superconductor magnet design

By Eileen De Guire / November 1, 2011

Snapshot of 3D temperature distribution in YBCO tape during quench show a very high local temperature gradient. A multiscale modeling approach developed at North Carolina State University helps optimize superconductor geometry and properties. Credit: Justin Schwartz, NCSU. Twenty-five years after their discovery, some high-temperature superconductors are starting to be used in applications. Since the beginning,…
