Size-dependent Thermal Conductivity

Matlab code to compute size-dependent thermal conductivity on arbitrary microstructures. The code is based on the model described in the following article:

  • Bouquet, Jean-Baptiste, and Julian J. Rimoli. "A length-dependent model for the thermomechanical response of ceramics." Journal of the Mechanics and Physics of Solids 82 (2015): 82-96.

The same model was adopted in our subsequent work on multi-scale topology optimization for enhanced heat transport properties:

  • Bouquet, Jean-Baptiste, Frederic Burgaud, and Julian J. Rimoli. "Exploiting length-dependent effects for the design of single-material systems with enhanced thermal transport properties." International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer 101 (2016): 1227-1236.

This code is developed and maintained by Jean-Baptiste Bouquet and Prof. Julian J. Rimoli at Georgia Tech.

Tensegrity Lattices

The code is based on the concepts published in the following articles: 

  • Rimoli, Julian J., and Raj Kumar Pal. "Mechanical response of 3-dimensional tensegrity lattices." Composites Part B: Engineering 115 (2017): 30-42.
  • Rimoli, Julian J. "A reduced-order model for the dynamic and post-buckling behavior of tensegrity structures." Mechanics of Materials (in press).

This code is developed and maintained by Raj Kumar Pal, Hossein Salahshoor and Prof. Julian J. Rimoli at Georgia Tech.
