    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.26, No.2, pp. 91-110, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2011.026.091
    Abstract This paper studies the torsional wave dispersion in the hollow bi-material compounded cylinder with finite initial strains. The investigations are carried out within the scope of the piecewise homogeneous body model with the use of the three-dimensional linearized theory of elastic waves in initially stressed bodies. The mechanical relations of the materials of the cylinders are described through the harmonic potential. The numerical results on the influence of the initial stretching or compression of the cylinders along the torsional wave propagation direction are presented and discussed More >

    Modeling of Moisture Diffusion in Permeable Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Composites Using Heterogeneous Hybrid Moisture Element Method

    De-Shin Liu1, Zhen-Wei Zhuang1, Shaw-Ruey Lyu2,3, Cho-Liang Chung4, Pai-Chen Lin1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.26, No.2, pp. 111-136, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2011.026.111
    Abstract This study proposes a two-dimensional heterogeneous hybrid moisture element method (HHMEM) for modeling transient moisture diffusion in permeable fiber-reinforced polymer composites.
    The HHMEM scheme is based on a heterogeneous hybrid moisture element(HHME), with properties determined through an equivalent hybrid moisture capacitance/conductance matrix. This matrix was calculated using the conventional finite element formulation in space discretization as well as the θ-method in time discretization with similar mass/stiffness properties and matrix condensing operations. A coupled HHME-FE scheme was developed and implemented in computer code MATLAB in order to analyze the transient moisture diffusion characteristics of composite materials containing multiple permeable fibers.

    The Anisotropy of Young's Modulus in Bones

    Ligia Munteanu1, Veturia Chiroiu1, Valeria Mosnegutu1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.26, No.2, pp. 137-156, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2011.026.137
    Abstract In this paper, yet another method for evaluating the elastic modulus for human bones is introduced and investigated. This method adopts the Jankowski and Tsakalakos strain energy function in which, the Born-Mayer energy term is the predominant term for calculations the elastic constants. By taking accounts the directional aspects of the spatial structure of bones, we obtain different values for the Young's modulus depending on the direction of the applied force with respect to the material's structure. The inverse problem analyzed in this paper is solved by inversion of the experimental data. An efficient stopping criterion is adopted to cease… More >

    Experimental Study on Mechanical Properties Degradation of TP110TS Tube Steel in High H2S Corrosive Environment

    Deli Gao1, Zengxin Zhao2
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.26, No.2, pp. 157-166, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2011.026.157
    Abstract The research on casing corrosion in sour environment by a synergism of sweet corrosion and H2S corrosion has become the basis of casing selection and casing string safety evaluation with more and more sour reservoirs containing high H2S concentration being developed. It is essential to scientifically utilize casing service ability and reasonably control production rate of gas well to achieve the effective and safe developing of gas resources during the safety period of casing service with a precise casing life prediction. Scanning electron microscopy and tensile testing were applied to investigate the corrosion of TP110TS tube steel in stimulant solution… More >
