    Plate Bending Analysis by using a Modified Plate Theory

    Y. Suetake1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.11, No.3, pp. 103-110, 2006, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2006.011.103
    Abstract Since Reissner and Mindlin proposed their classical thick plate theories, many authors have presented refined theories including transverse shear deformation. Most of those plate theories have tended to use higher order power series for displacements and stresses along the thickness in order to achieve the higher accuracy. However, they have not carefully noticed lateral load effect. In this paper, we pay attention to constitution of the lateral loads: a body force and upper and lower surface tractions. Especially we formulate a modified theory for plate bending, in which the effect of a body force is distinguished from that of surface… More >

    H. Kawai1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.11, No.3, pp. 111-120, 2006, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2006.011.111
    Abstract ADVENTURE AutoGL (pronounced as ‘Ote- ga-lu’) is a graphics and GUI library, dedicated for simulation-based research and development. It is designed for the simulation users to develop their own data viewers and editors. Currently, the library is used among many researchers and simulation users, mainly in universities and national research centers. Its functionalities and supported platforms are explained. AutoGL applications of various kinds of simulation methods are demonstrated also. More >

    Analysis of Partially Concrete-Filled Steel Tubular Columns subjected to Cyclic Loadings

    T. Ishizawa1, M. Iura1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.11, No.3, pp. 121-130, 2006, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2006.011.121
    Abstract A one-dimensional model is proposed for numerical analysis of partially concrete-filled steel tubular (PCFST) columns subjected to cyclic loadings. The present formulation does not require experimental results nor shell analysis to obtain the constitutive equation of the model. The material properties and dimensions of PCFST columns are required for numerical analysis of the present model. The PCFST columns are assumed to consist of elastic beam and base plastic-hinge region in which steel local buckling is observed. Two parameters are introduced in order to express hardening phenomena of PCFST columns subjected to cyclic loading. Resisting forces due to concrete filled in… More >

    Analysis of Structure with Material Interface by Meshfree Method

    S. Masuda1, H. Noguchi1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.11, No.3, pp. 131-144, 2006, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2006.011.131
    Abstract This paper presents a novel and accurate technique for modeling discontinuous derivatives in meshfree methods, which will be used in the analysis of structures with material interfaces. The novelty lies in the formulation of the Moving Least Squares Approximation (MLSA) scheme where an introduced discontinuous derivative basis function replaces the conventional linear basis function. Furthermore, it is easy to implement this novelty into existing meshfree methods, such as the Element Free Galerkin (EFG) method, which are based on the MLSA scheme. The successful analyses of one and two-dimensional structures with material interfaces demonstrate the potential of the proposed technique. More >

    Multiscale Crystal Plasticity Modeling based on Field Theory

    T. Hasebe1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.11, No.3, pp. 145-156, 2006, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2006.011.145
    Abstract This paper presents recent achievements in field theoretical approach toward substantial linkage among key hieratical scales dominating polycrystalline plasticity of metals and alloys. Major ingredients of the theory are briefly shown first, which is followed by several overwhelming results and some implications including key factors for dislocation cell structure evolution, key features of polycrystalline plasticity and their rational modeling in crystal plasticity-based constitutive equation.
