    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.22, No.1, pp. 1-38, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2011.022.001
    Abstract The 3D approach was employed for investigations of the stability loss of the solid circular cylinder made from viscoelastic composite material. This approach is based on investigations of the evolution of the initial infinitesimal imperfections of the cylinder within the scope of 3D geometrically nonlinear field equations of the theory of viscoelasticity for anisotropic bodies. The numerical results of the critical forces and critical time are presented and discussed. To illustrate the importance of the results obtained using the 3D approach, these results are compared with the corresponding ones obtained by employing various approximate beam theories. The viscoelasticity properties of… More >

    Analysis and Experiment on Incremental Forming Process for the Spiral Plate of Continuous Screw Conveyer

    S. Gao1, K. Nakasa2, K. Nogi3, L. Huang4
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.22, No.1, pp. 39-54, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2011.022.039
    Abstract An incremental press-forming method was newly developed for the fabrication of spiral plates of a continuous screw conveyer, boring screw, screw pump and so on. In this method, a pair of V-shaped punches and dies with two opposite inclined edges are used instead of punch and die with spiral surfaces. The experiments on incremental forming were carried out on aluminum alloy and steel disks with a hole and a slit, and the deformation process of the plate during and after the press-forming was simulated by a finite element method (FEM). The press-forming shows that the spiral plate has a correct… More >

    Nonlinear Finite Element Analysis of RC Structures Incorporating Corrosion Effects

    Smitha Gopinath1,2, A. Ramach,ra Murthy1, Nagesh R. Iyer1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.22, No.1, pp. 55-72, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2011.022.055
    Abstract This paper presents the mathematical modeling techniques for nonlinear finite element analysis of RC structure to incorporate uniform corrosion effects. Effect of corrosion has been simulated as reduction in effective cross-sectional area of reinforcing bar, reduction in bonding phenomena and as reduction in material properties of reinforcing bar such as yield strength and elastic modulus. Appropriate constitutive laws for (i) corroded rebar elements and (ii) bond slip with corroded bar have been described. Procedure has been outlined to determine the global damage indicator by secant stiffness based approach. A corroded RC beam has been analysed to validate the proposed model… More >

    Numerical Simulation of Detonation and Multi-Material Interface Tracking

    Cheng Wang1, Jianguo Ning1, Tianbao Ma1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.22, No.1, pp. 73-96, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2011.022.073
    Abstract In this paper, we report high resolution simulations using a fifth-order weighted essentially non-oscillatory (WENO) scheme with a third-order TVD Runge-Kutta time stepping method to examine the features of the detonation for gas and condensed explosives. A two-stage chemical reaction model and an ignition and growth model are employed to describe the chemical reaction process for gas and condensed explosives. Based on the Steger-Warming vector flux splitting method, a splitting method is employed when the vector flux does not satisfy the homogeneity property for simulating detonation wave propagation for condensed explosives. The sensibility of flame propagation process and explosion overpressure… More >
