    The Lie-Group Shooting Method for Thermal Stress Evaluation Through an Internal Temperature Measurement

    Chein-Shan Liu1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.8, No.1, pp. 1-16, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2008.008.001
    Abstract In the present work we study numerical computations of inverse thermal stress problems. The unknown boundary conditions of an elastically deformable heat conducting rod are not given a priori and are not allowed to measure directly, because the boundary may be not accessible to measure. However, an internal measurement of temperature is available. We treat this inverse problem by using a semi-discretization technique, of which the time domain is divided into many sub-intervals and the physical quantities are discretized at these node points of discrete times. Then the resulting ordinary differential equations in the discretized space are numerically integrated towards… More >

    A Modified Multiscale Model for Microcantilever Sensor

    Yan Zhang1, Shengping Shen1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.8, No.1, pp. 17-22, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2008.008.017
    Abstract In this paper, an existed model for adsorption-induced surface stress is modified with physical clarity, based on the equilibrium of force. In the proposed multiscale model, a four-atom system is used, instead of the existed three-atom system which did not consider the force equilibrium. By analyzing the force state of an atom, the thickness of the first layer atoms can be determined. Thus, the proposed model does not need to determine the layer-thickness by experiments or artificially. The results obtained from the proposed model agree very well with the experimental data. This paper is helpful to investigate the atomistic theory… More >

    Green's Function for Multilayers with Interfacial Membrane and Flexural Rigidities1

    B. Yang2, V. K. Tewary3
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.8, No.1, pp. 23-32, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2008.008.023
    Abstract A three-dimensional Green's function for a material system consisting of anisotropic and linearly elastic planar multilayers with interfacial membrane and flexural rigidities has been derived. The Stroh formalism and two-dimensional Fourier transforms are applied to derive the general solution for each homogeneous layer. The Green's function for the multilayers is then solved by imposing the surface boundary condition, the interfacial displacement continuity condition, and the interfacial traction discontinuity condition. The last condition is given by the membrane and bending equilibrium equations of the interphases modeled as Kirchhoff plates. Numerical results that demonstrate the validity and efficiency of the formulation are… More >

    Thermal Cycling Degradation of T650 Carbon Fiber/PT-30 Cyanate Ester Composite

    Huanchun Chen1, Kunigal Shivakumar1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.8, No.1, pp. 33-42, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2008.008.033
    Abstract Thermal cycling degradation effect on tensile and flexural properties of Cytec T650 carbon/Lonza Primaset PT-30 cyanate ester composite rods used for gas turbine engine brush seals was evaluated. The composite rods were thermal cycled in air from room temperature to 315°C for 100, 200, 400, 600 and 800 cycles. Each thermal cycle is a one hour period with 28 minutes hold at peak temperature and a high heating/cooling rate of 73°C/min. The composite withstood the first 100 thermal cycles with less than 10% property change. After that, tensile strength and fracture strain as well as flexural modulus were gradually reduced.… More >

    A 3D Computational Model of RC Beam Using Lower Order Elements with Enhanced Strain Approach in the Elastic Range

    Amiya K. Samanta1, Somnath Ghosh2
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.8, No.1, pp. 43-52, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2008.008.043
    Abstract A procedure has been described to carry out three-dimensional elastic analysis of reinforced concrete beam employing finite element technique, which uses lower order elements. The proposed procedure utilizes 8-noded isometric solid /hexahedral elements HCiS18 with enhanced assumed strain (EAS) formulation, recently developed in the literature, to predict load-deformation and internal stresses produced in case of a simply supported RC beams in the elastic regime. It models the composite behaviour of concrete and reinforcements in rigid /perfect bond situation and their mutual interaction in bond-slip condition considering continuous interface elements at the material level. Although, bond-slip relation are very much non-linear… More >
