  • On residual stresses and homeostasis: an elastic theory of functional adaptation in living matter 

    Ciarletta, Pasquale; Destrade, Michel; Gower, Artur L. (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-04-26)
    Living matter can functionally adapt to external physical factors by developing internal tensions, easily revealed by cutting experiments. Nonetheless, residual stresses intrinsically have a complex spatial distribution, ...
  • On stress-dependent elastic moduli and wave speeds 

    Destrade, Michel; Ogden, R.W. (Oxford University Press, 2013)
    On the basis of the general non-linear theory of a hyperelastic material with initial stress, initially without consideration of the origin of the initial stress, we determine explicit expressions for the stress-dependent ...
  • On stress-dependent elastic moduli and wave speeds 

    Destrade, Michel (Oxford Journals, 2012-03-30)
    On the basis of the general non-linear theory of a hyperelastic material with initial stress, initially without consideration of the origin of the initial stress, we determine explicit expressions for the stress-dependent ...
  • On the Abaqus FEA model of finite viscoelasticity 

    Destrade, Michel (American Chemical Society, 2009-05)
    Predictions of the QLV (Quasi-Linear Viscoelastic) constitutive law are compared with those of the ABAQUS viscoelastic model for two simple motions in order to highlight, in particular, their very different dissipation ...
  • On the application of robust numerical methods to a complete flow wave-current model. Boundary and Interior Layers ONERA 

    Madden, Niall (2004)
    We aim to show how parameter-robust numerical method may be employed to solve equations arising in the modelling of wave-current interactions.We present two such models: a complete flow model for wave-current interaction ...
  • On the complexity of multiplication in the Iwahori-Hecke algebra of the symmetric group 

    Niemeyer, Alice C.; Pfeiffer, Götz; Praeger, Cheryl E. (Elsevier, 2016-09-12)
    We present new efficient data structures for elements of Coxeter groups of type Am and their associated Iwahori Hecke algebras H(A(m)). Usually, elements of H(A(m)) are represented as simple coefficient list of length M = ...
  • On the composition product of saturated fusion systems 

    Park, Sejong (Elsevier, 2011-11)
    We say that a fusion system is the composition product of two subsystems if every morphism can be factored as a morphism in one fusion system followed by a morphism in the other. We establish a relationship between the ...
  • On the equivariant K-homology of PSL_2 of the imaginary quadratic integers 

    Rahm, Alexander D. (Association des Annales de l'Institut Fourier, 2016-09)
    We establish formulae for the part due to torsion of the equivariant $K$-homology of all the Bianchi groups (PSL$_2$ of the imaginary quadratic integers), in terms of elementary number-theoretic quantities. To achieve this, ...
  • On the quiver presentation of the descent algebra of the symmetric group 

    Bishop, Marcus; Pfeiffer, Götz (Elsevier, 2013-03-18)
    We describe a presentation of the descent algebra of the symmetric group G(n) as a quiver with relations. This presentation arises from a new construction of the descent algebra as a homomorphic image of an algebra of ...
  • On the rectilinear shear of compressible and incompressible elastic slabs 

    Destrade, Michel (2010)
    We review some pseudo-planar deformations for the equations of incompressible isotropic nonlinear elasticity first introduced in 1985 by Rajagopal and Wineman. We extend this class of deformations to compressible isotropic ...
  • On the table of marks of a direct product of finite groups 

    Masterson, Brendan; Pfeiffer, Götz (Elsevier, 2017-12-28)
    We present a method for computing the table of marks of a direct product of finite groups. In contrast to the character table of a direct product of two finite groups, its table of marks is not simply the Kronecker product ...
  • On the third- and fourth-order constants of incompressible isotropic elasticity. 

    Destrade, Michel (Acoustical Society of America, 2010-04-25)
    Consider the constitutive law for an isotropic elastic solid with the strain-energy function expanded up to the fourth order in the strain and the stress up to the third order in the strain. The stress-strain relation can ...
  • On the Torus degeneration of the genus two partition function 

    Hurley, Donny; Tuite, Michael P. (World Scientific Publishing, 2013-07-16)
    We consider the partition function of a general vertex operator algebra V on a genus two Riemann surface formed by sewing together two tori. We consider the non-trivial degeneration limit where one torus is pinched down ...
  • On the use of 31P NMR for the quantification of hydrosoluble phosphorus-containing compounds in coral host tissues and cultured zooxanthellae 

    Godinot, Claire; Gaysinski, Marc; Thomas, Olivier P.; Ferrier-Pages, Christine; Grover, Renaud (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-02-23)
    31P Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) was assessed to investigate the phosphorus-containing compounds present in the tissues of the scleractinian coral Stylophora pistillata as well as of cultured zooxanthellae (CZ). Results ...
  • Onde de Love Piézoacoustique 

    Collet, Bernard; Destrade, Michel (2006-04-24)
    Une sélection de résultats analytiques et numériques concernant la propagation d'ondes planes harmoniques guidées dans un bicouche piézoélectrique est présentée. L'étude effectuée concerne les modes transverses horizontaux ...
  • One-pot hydrogen peroxide and hydrohalic acid induced ring closure and selective aromatic halogenation to give new ring-fused benzimidazoles 

    Gurry, Michael; Sweeney, Martin; McArdle, Patrick; Aldabbagh, Fawaz (American Chemical Society, 2015-05-19)
    A new series of selectively dichlorinated and dibrominated five- to eight-membered-ring [1,2-a]-fused benzimidazoles and [1,4]oxazino[4,3-a]benzimidazoles are synthesized in mostly high yields of >80% using the reaction ...
  • Onset of non-linearity in the elastic bending of blocks 

    Destrade, Michel; Gilchrist, Michael D. (American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2013-01-25)
    The classical flexure problem of non-linear incompressible elasticity is revisited assuming that the bending angle suffered by the block is specified instead of the usual applied moment. The general moment-bending angle ...
