Mauricio Ponga’s article selected as one of MSMSE’s “Highlights of 2016”

An article published by MECH Professor Mauricio Ponga was recently selected by the Modelling and Simulation in Materials Science and Engineering (MSMSE) journal in their exclusive “Highlights of 2016” collection. The Highlights collection includes the top articles published in MSMSE each year, selected on the basis of referee or Editorial Board endorsements, novelty, scientific impact and broadness of appeal. In his article, “Dynamic behavior of nano-voids in magnesium under hydrostatic tensile stress,” Ponga investigates the mechanisms responsible for nano-void growth in single crystal magnesium under dynamic hydrostatic tensile stress. Those interested in Modelling and Simulation of Materials can find Ponga and other highlighted articles here. Articles included in the Highlights collection will be free to access for all readers throughout 2017, so we encourage you to enjoy this free resource!
