20 Novembre 2018 : Exposé de Mr Truskinovsky

Lev Truskinovsky (research director at ESPCI) will give a talk on “Scale-free intermittency in solid mechanics” at laboratoire Navier, on tuesday, november 20th at 11.30am.


An important microscopic feature of plastic flow, fracture and structural phase transformations in solids is a complex avalanche-type dynamics of the carriers of inelastic deformation. In this talk we review recent attempts to explain the ubiquity of the observations which suggest power law structure of the acoustic emission in such systems.
