The Boechler Research Group is moving to the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of California San Diego. More updates coming soon.
Two new articles recently accepted: one to Granular Matter and one to Physical Review B
S. Wallen et al., Discrete breathers in a mass-in-mass chain with Hertzian local resonators: pdf
Congratulations to Sam Wallen for passing his PhD general exam. Next stop final exam!
Two new papers:
– Wallen, S. and Boechler, N., “Shear to longitudinal mode conversion via second harmonic generation in a two-dimensional microscale granular crystal“, Wave Motion, 68, 22 (2016)
– Geslain, A., Raetz, S., Hiraiwa, M., Abi Ghanem, M., Wallen, S. P., Khanolkar, A., Boechler, N., Laurent, J., Prada, C., Duclos, A., Leclaire, P., Groby, J.-P., “Spatial Laplace transform for complex wavenumber recovery and its application in the analysis of attenuation in acoustic systems”, Journal of Applied Physics, in press (2016)
New paper on spallation of 2D microscale granular crystals published in Langmuir.
Prof. Boechler receives a NSF EFRI grant to study non-reciprocal wave propagation, and new NSF MRI grant for a Nanoscribe 3D printer.
