In this paper, mechanical buckling analysis of a functionally graded (FG) elliptical plate, which is made up of saturated porous materials and is resting on two parameters elastic foundation, is investigated. The plate is subjected to in-plane force and mechanical properties of the plate assumed to be varied through the thickness of it according to three different functions, which are called porosity distributions. Since it is assumed that the plate to be thick, the higher order shear deformation theory (HSDT) is employed to analyze the plate. Using the total potential energy function and using the Ritz method, the critical buckling load of the plate is obtained and the results are verified with the simpler states in the literature. The effect of different parameters, such as different models of porosity distribution, porosity variations, pores compressibility variations, boundary conditions, and aspect ratio of the plate, is considered and has been discussed in details. It is seen that increasing the porosity coefficient decreases the stiffness of the plate and consequently the critical buckling load will be reduced. Also, by increasing the pores' compressibility, the critical buckling load will be increased. Adding the elasti...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule.
