We investigate the in-plane and cross-plane thermal conductivities of molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) using non-equilibrium molecular dynamics simulations. We find that the in-plane thermal conductivity of monolayer MoS2 is about 19.76 W mK(-1). Interestingly, the in-plane thermal conductivity of multilayer MoS2 is insensitive to the number of layers, which is(More)
The deformation behavior of a pH-sensitive hydrogel micro-fluidic valve system is investigated using inhomogeneous gel deformation theory, in which the fluid-structure interaction (FSI) of the gel solid and fluid flow in the pipe is considered. We use a finite element method with a well adopted hydrogel constitutive equation, which is coded in commercial(More)
Silicene, a silicon-basedhomologueof graphene, arouses great interest innano-electronic devices due to its outstanding electronic properties.However, its promising electronic applications are greatly hindered by lack of understanding in themechanical strength of silicene. Therefore, in order to design mechanically reliable deviceswith silicene, it is(More)
Phosphorene, a new two-dimensional (2D) semiconducting material, has attracted tremendous attention recently. However, its structural instability under ambient conditions poses a great challenge to its practical applications. A possible solution for this problem is to encapsulate phosphorene with more stable 2D materials, such as graphene, forming van der(More)
In this paper, inhomogeneous deformation of a temperature-sensitive hydrogel has been studied and analyzed under arbitrary geometric and boundary conditions. We present the governing equations and equilibrium conditions of an isothermal process based on the monophase gel field theory of hydrogel via a variational approach. We have adopted and implemented an(More)
