    Quasi-Conforming Triangular Reissner-Mindlin Shell Elements by Using Timoshenko's Beam Function

    Changsheng Wang1, Ping Hu1,2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.88, No.5, pp. 325-350, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2012.088.325
    Abstract Based on the Reissner-Mindlin plate theory, two 3-node triangular flat shell elements QCS31 and QCS32 are proposed by using Timoshenko's beam function within the framework of quasi-conforming technique. The exact displacement function of the Timoshenko's beam is used as the displacement on the element boundary in the bending part and the interpolated inner field function is also derived by the function. In the shear part the re-constitution technique is adopted. The drilling degrees of freedom are added in the membrane part to improve membrane behavior. The proposed elements can be used for the analysis of both moderately thick and thin… More >

    Abstract The explosive Engineering field is a costly one in which not every organization can effort the time and money it takes to performed field tests on its explosives. The purpose of this article is to present a program that was developed in the Israeli Navy for performance estimations and safety issues of warheads and explosives. With a relative small developing time one can create a tool that gives preliminary results in a few minutes without the need to design and order a field tests or run finite elements analyses. By implementing a few known models, in this tool, the user… More >

    Hygrothermal Loading Effects in Bending Analysis of Multilayered Composite Plates

    S. Brischetto1
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.88, No.5, pp. 367-418, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2012.088.367
    Abstract The paper analyzes the hygrothermal loading effects in the bending of multilayered composite plates. Refined two-dimensional models are used to evaluate these effects, they are implemented in the framework of the Carrera's Unified Formulation (CUF) which also allows classical models to be obtained. Hygroscopic and thermal effects are evaluated by means of hygroscopic and thermal load applications, respectively. Such loads can be determined via a priori linear or constant moisture content and temperature profiles through the thickness of the plate, or by calculating them via the solution of the Fick moisture diffusion law and the Fourier heat conduction equation, respectively.… More >

    The Second-Order Two-Scale Method for Heat Transfer Performances of Periodic Porous Materials with Interior Surface Radiation

    Zhiqiang Yang1, Junzhi Cui2, Yufeng Nie1, Qiang Ma2
    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.88, No.5, pp. 419-442, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2012.088.419
    Abstract In this paper, a new second-order two-scale (SOTS) method is developed to predict heat transfer performances of periodic porous materials with interior surface radiation. Firstly, the second-order two-scale formulation for computing temperature field of the problem is given by means of construction way. Then, the error estimation of the second-order two-scale approximate solution is derived on some regularity hypothesis. Finally, the corresponding finite element algorithms are proposed and some numerical results are presented. They show that the SOTS method in this paper is feasible and valid for predicting the heat transfer performances of periodic porous materials. More >
