RheoMan: a five-year, ERC-funded (Advanced Grant), project to model the rheology of the Earth's mantle

Mar 17, 2013 RheoMan disseminates General

Following the methods developped in RheoMan, Nils Garviks publishes his first paper on the modeling of the mechanical properties of cementite. He uses first principles calculations to calculate the ideal (tensile and shear) stresses of Fe3C
