In the multicriteria strategic planning of an organization, management should often be aware of employees' resistance to change before making new decisions; otherwise, a chosen strategy, though technologically acceptable, may not be efficient in the long term. This paper, using a sample case study within an organization, shows how different versions of(More)
In this paper, a new non-compensatory approach is introduced for the material selection of bipolar plates in Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cells (PEFC), using the original ELECTRE I (Elimination Et (and) Choice Translating Reality) decision-making method. This approach provides solutions to material selection problems of bipolar plates involving multiple con(More)
In this paper, we combine experiments and numerical simulations to investigate the large deformation mechanics of periodically patterned cylindrical structures under uniaxial compression. Focusing on cylinders with a square array of circular pores, we show that their buckling behavior is not only controlled by the porosity (as for the case of the(More)
In this study, we report a novel periodic material with negative Poisson's ratio (also called auxetic materials) fabricated by denting spherical dimples in an elastic flat sheet. While previously reported auxetic materials are either porous or comprise at least two phases, the material proposed here is non-porous and made of a homogeneous elastic sheet.(More)
