    Abstract The aim of this paper is to study the reflection of plane harmonic waves from a semi-infinite elastic solid under the effect of magnetic field in a vacuum. The expressions for the reflection coefficients, which are the relations of the amplitudes of the reflected waves to the amplitude of the incident waves, are obtained. Similarly, the reflection coefficient ratio variations with the angle of incident under different conditions are shown graphically. Comparisons are made with the results predicted by the dual-phase-lag model and Lord-Shulman theory in the presence and absence of magnetic field. More >

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.51, No.2, pp. 81-103, 2016, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2016.051.081
    Abstract This paper presents experimental and analytical investigations on concrete beams reinforced with basalt fiber reinforced polymer (BFRP) and steel fibers without stirrups. Independent behaviour of BFRP reinforced beams and steel fiber reinforced beams were evaluated and the effect of combining BFRP bars and steel fiber was investigated in detail. It is found that combining steel fibers with BFRP could change the shear failure of BFRP reinforced beam to flexural failure. Further, the existing analytical models were reviewed and compared to predict the shear strength of both FRP reinforced and steel fiber reinforced beams. Based on the review, the appropriate model… More >

    Dispersion of Axisymmetric Longitudinal Waves in A Bi-Material Compound Solid Cylinder Made of Viscoelastic Materials

    S.D. Akbarov1,2, T. Kocal3, T. Kepceler1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.51, No.2, pp. 105-143, 2016, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2016.051.105
    Abstract The paper studies the dispersion of axisymmetric longitudinal waves in the bi-material compound circular cylinder made of linear viscoelastic materials. The investigations are carried out within the scope of the piecewise homogeneous body model by utilizing the exact equations of linear viscoelasto-dynamics. The corresponding dispersion equation is derived for an arbitrary type of hereditary operator and the algorithm is developed for its numerical solution. Concrete numerical results are obtained for the case where the relations of the constituents of the cylinder are described through fractional exponential operators. The influence of the viscosity of the materials of the compound cylinder on… More >
