    Shape-Based Approach for Full Field Displacement Calculation of Cellular Materials

    Yi Xiao1, Qing H. Qin1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.34, No.2, pp. 95-115, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2013.034.095
    Abstract In this paper, we propose a new approach of optical full-field measurement for displacement calculation on the surface of a cellular solid. Cell boundary points are sampled as nodes in the analysis. To find the nodal values of displacements the nodes are to be mapped onto their corresponding points in the deformed cell boundary by shape based point matching. A thin plate spline based robust point matching (TPS-RPM) approach is used instead of correlation of intensity pattern between two regions in traditional displacement measurement methods. The proposed approach involves multiple-step image processing including cell region segmentation, cell region matching and… More >

    Effects of High Magnetic Field and Post-Annealing on the Evaporated Ni/Si (100) Thin Films

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.34, No.2, pp. 117-129, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2013.034.117
    Abstract The effects of high magnetic field and post-annealing on the structural, electrical and magnetic properties of the evaporated Ni films were investigated and compared. The in-situ application of a 6 T magnetic field during evaporation or post-annealing at 200°C did not change the crystal structures of the films. However, the magnetic field makes the films exhibit the smallest grain size and the lowest surface roughness. Crystallinity was improved for both the 6 T films and the annealed films. This leads to the enhancement of saturation magnetization (Ms). The value of Ms for the 0 T films was 588 emu/cm3, while… More >

    EM Analysis of Metamaterial Based Radar Absorbing Structure (RAS) for MillimeterWave Applications

    Shiv Narayan1, Latha S.1, R M Jha1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.34, No.2, pp. 131-142, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2013.034.131
    Abstract The EM performance analysis of a multilayered metamaterial based radar absorbing structure (RAS) has been presented in this paper based on transmission line transfer matrix (TLTM) method for millimeter wave applications. The proposed metamaterial-RAS consists of cascaded DPS and MNG layers of identical configurations. It exhibits extremely low reflection (< 42 dB) at 95 GHz and absorbs more than 95% power of incident wave over the frequency range of 90.4- 100 GHz without metal backing for both TE and TM polarizations. In view of aerospace applications, the reflection, transmission, and absorption characteristics of the proposed metamaterial-RAS are also studied at… More >

    A New Optimal Iterative Algorithm for Solving Nonlinear Poisson Problems in Heat Diffusion

    Chih-Wen Chang1,2, Chein-Shan Liu3
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.34, No.2, pp. 143-175, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2013.034.143
    Abstract The nonlinear Poisson problems in heat diffusion governed by elliptic type partial differential equations are solved by a modified globally optimal iterative algorithm (MGOIA). The MGOIA is a purely iterative method for searching the solution vector x without using the invert of the Jacobian matrix D. Moreover, we reveal the weighting parameter αc in the best descent vector w = αcE + DTE and derive the convergence rate and find a criterion of the parameter γ. When utilizing αc and γ, we can further accelerate the convergence speed several times. Several numerical experiments are carefully discussed and validated the proposed… More >
