Our article “Driving rate dependence of avalanche statistics and shapes at the yielding transition” has been accepted for publication in PRL!

We study stress time series caused by plastic avalanches in athermally sheared disordered materials. Using particle-based simulations and a mesoscopic elasto-plastic model, we analyze size and shear-rate dependence of the stress-drop durations and size distributions together with their average temporal shape. We find critical exponents different from mean-field predictions, and a clear asymmetry for individual avalanches. We probe scaling relations for the rate dependency of the dynamics and we report a crossover towards mean-field results for strong driving.

You can find it here on arXiv, and here published in Physical Review Letters.
