I am working with Andrew Leong to derive more experimental results which can be adopted to validate our numerical simulations.
In addition, I am still working on single crystal quartz simulations. We need more accurate fracture properties. I have searched in the literature but cannot find anyone who talked about the mode II fracture propagation in those materials.
I also started studying some papers about physical-based damage model, namely, Paliwal and Ramesh 2008 and Daphalapurkar et al 2011.
