    V.G.Yakhno1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.21, No.1, pp. 1-16, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2011.021.001
    Abstract Homogeneous non-dispersive anisotropic materials, characterized by a positive constant permeability and a symmetric positive definite conductivity tensor, are considered in the paper. In these anisotropic materials, the electric and magnetic dyadic Green's functions are defined as electric and magnetic fields arising from impulsive current dipoles and satisfying the time-dependent Maxwell's equations in quasi-static approximation. A new method of deriving these dyadic Green's functions is suggested in the paper. This method consists of several steps: equations for electric and magnetic dyadic Green's functions are written in terms of the Fourier modes; explicit formulae for the Fourier modes of dyadic Green's functions… More >

    Using a Lie-Group Adaptive Method for the Identification of a Nonhomogeneous Conductivity Function and Unknown Boundary Data

    Chein-Shan Liu1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.21, No.1, pp. 17-40, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2011.021.017
    Abstract Only the left-boundary data of temperature and heat flux are used to estimate an unknown parameter function α(x) in Tt(x,t) = ∂(α(x)Tx)/∂x + h(x,t), as well as to recover the right-boundary data. When α(x) is given the above problem is a well-known inverse heat conduction problem (IHCP). This paper solves a mixed-type inverse problem as a combination of the IHCP and the problem of parameter identification, without needing to assume a function form of α(x) a priori, and without measuring extra data as those used by other methods. We use the one-step Lie-Group Adaptive Method (LGAM) for the semi-discretizations of… More >

    A Coupled Magnetic-Elastic-Thermal Free-Energy Model with Hysteretic Nonlinearity for Terfenol-D Rods

    Tian-Zhong Wang1, You-He Zhou1,2
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.21, No.1, pp. 41-64, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2011.021.041
    Abstract Based on the thermodynamic theory and the postulates of Jiles and Atherton, a general coupled magnetic-elastic-thermal free-energy model with hysteretic nonlinearity is established for Terfenol-D rods, in which the effect of Weiss molecular field is incorporated. The quantitative agreement between numerical simulation results predicted by the free-energy model and existing experimental data confirms the validity and reliability of the obtained nonlinear theoretical model, and indicates that the free-energy model can accurately capture the nonlinear hysteresis characteristic of Terfenol-D. Meanwhile, the free-energy model is employed to investigate the influences of mechanical stress and the temperature on the magnetostrictive effect of Terfenol-D… More >

    Electromagnetic Shielding Effectiveness of Grid-Mesh Films Made of Polyaniline: a Numerical Approach

    S. H. Kwon1, B. R. Kim2, H. K. Lee2,3
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.21, No.1, pp. 65-86, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2011.021.065
    Abstract The electromagnetic shielding effectiveness of grid-mesh films made of polyaniline was numerically investigated, and the optimal size of the polyaniline grid was determined through numerical analyses. The permittivity of polyaniline was first determined from an inverse analysis based on experimental data. A series of numerical analyses were carried out with 225 polyaniline grid-mesh films of different thickness, spacing, and width, and the shielding effectiveness of every grid was examined. In addition to the numerical analysis, the transparency of the grid-mesh films and the amount of polyaniline material required to manufacture the unit grid area (1mx1m) were calculated. The optimal dimensions… More >
