2018 CMU Workshop on Methods for 3D Microstructure Studies

Day 1 (7/9/2018): The workshop started with opening remarks from Professor Marc de Graef, of Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), highlighting some fun facts about the city of Pittsburgh and CMU — especially the fact that the architecture of CMU is “highly three dimensional” as you can start from the 4th floor of one building and…

LaTeX submission on EVISE

When submitting a zipped file containing all LaTeX source files, figures, etc., one needs to make sure that only a single file with “.tex” extension is present. So far, we did not investigate whether %!TEX root = <master file name> in supplementary source files would help EVISE to identify the master document.

PS1 tricks for bash shell environment

use export PS1=”\[$(tput setaf 4)\]\[$(tput bold)\]\u@\h:\W\\$ \[$(tput sgr0)\]” instead of export PS1=”\[\e[1;34m\]\u@\e[1;31m\h\e[m\[\e[1;34m\]:\W>\[\e[0m\]” in .environment file, to avoid overlapping of long commands in bash shell

Moved gri-plotting to github

I decided to fully share the gri-plotting repository and relocated it to github.com. Please update your settings: cd $GRI git remote add origin git@github.com:eisenlohr/gri-plotting.git git branch –set-upstream-to=origin/master master

working on thermo-mechanical solver in DAMASK (with Tias)

While using the thermo-mechanical solver in DAMASK, we (me and Tias) figured that if we specify some thermal source, we need an initial deltaT for convergence. For example, even if we have a bicrystal and we give zero deltaT then the calculation fails even at the first increment because the 2-PK is zero. However, if…
