    Mechanical Analysis of 3D Composite Materials by Hybrid Boundary Node Method

    Yu Miao1, Zhe Chen1, Qiao Wang1,2, Hongping Zhu1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.43, No.1, pp. 49-74, 2014, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2014.043.049

    Abstract In this paper, an improved multi-domain model based on the hybrid boundary node method (Hybrid BNM) is proposed for mechanical analysis of 3D composites. The Hybrid BNM is a boundary type meshless method which based on the modified variational principle and the Moving Least Squares (MLS) approximation. The improved multi-domain model can reduce the total degrees of freedom (DOFs) compared with the conventional multi-domain solver. It is very suitable for the inclusion-based composites, especially for the composites when the inclusions are solid and totally embedded in the matrix domain. Numerical examples are presented to verify More >

    A Higher Order Synergistic Damage Model for Prediction of Stiffness Changes due to Ply Cracking in Composite Laminates

    Chandra Veer Singh1,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.34, No.3, pp. 227-249, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2013.034.227

    Abstract A non-linear damage model is developed for the prediction of stiffness degradation in composite laminates due to transverse matrix cracking. The model follows the framework of a recently developed synergistic damage mechanics (SDM) approach which combines the strengths of micro-damage mechanics and continuum damage mechanics (CDM) through the so-called constraint parameters. A common limitation of the current CDM and SDM models has been the tendency to over-predict stiffness changes at high crack densities due to linearity inherent in their stiffness-damage relationships. The present paper extends this SDM approach by including higher order damage terms in More >

    3D Analyses of the Stability Loss of the Circular Solid Cylinder Made from Viscoelastic Composite Material

    S. D. Akbarov1,2, S. Karakaya3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.22, No.1, pp. 1-38, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2011.022.001

    Abstract The 3D approach was employed for investigations of the stability loss of the solid circular cylinder made from viscoelastic composite material. This approach is based on investigations of the evolution of the initial infinitesimal imperfections of the cylinder within the scope of 3D geometrically nonlinear field equations of the theory of viscoelasticity for anisotropic bodies. The numerical results of the critical forces and critical time are presented and discussed. To illustrate the importance of the results obtained using the 3D approach, these results are compared with the corresponding ones obtained by employing various approximate beam More >

    Synthesis of Nanocomposite Materials Using the Reprecipitation Method

    Edward Van Keuren1, MakiNishida1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.14, No.1, pp. 61-78, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2009.014.061

    Abstract Room temperature solution-based synthetic methods are an important option for the production of a wide range of nanomaterials. These methods often rely on self-assembly or self-organization of molecular precursors, with specific control of their nucleation and growth properties. We are developing strategies for the creation of multifunctional composite nanoparticles as well as models for predicting the bulk properties from the individual components and parameters of the processing conditions. One method of synthesis is a reprecipitation technique in which nanoparticle nucleation and growth is induced by the rapid injection of a molecular solution into a miscible… More >

    Hydroplaning Analysis for Tire Rolling over Water Film with Various Thicknesses Using the LS-DYNA Fluid-Structure Interactive Scheme

    Syh-Tsang Jenq1,2, Yuen-Sheng Chiu2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.11, No.1, pp. 33-58, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2009.011.033

    Abstract Current work studies the transient hydroplaning behavior of 200 kPa inflated pneumatic radial tires with various types of tread patterns. Tires were numerically loaded with a quarter car weight of 4 kN, and then accelerated from rest rolling over a water film with a thickness of 5, 10 and 15 mm on top of a flat pavement. Tire structure is composed of outer rubber tread and inner fiber reinforcing composite layers. The Mooney-Rivlin constitutive law and the classical laminated theory (CLT) were, respectively, used to describe the mechanical behavior of rubber material and composite reinforcing… More >

    Multi-Scale Modelling and Simulation of Textile Reinforced Materials

    G. Haasemann1, M. Kästner1 and V. Ulbricht1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.3, No.3, pp. 131-146, 2006, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2006.003.131

    Abstract Novel textile reinforced composites provide an extremely high adaptability and allow for the development of materials whose features can be adjusted precisely to certain applications. A successful structural and material design process requires an integrated simulation of the material behavior, the estimation of the effective properties which need to be assigned to the macroscopic model and the resulting features of the component. In this context two efficient modelling strategies - the Binary Model (Carter, Cox, and Fleck (1994)) and the Extended Finite Element Method (X-FEM) (Moës, Cloirec, Cartraud, and Remacle (2003)) - are used to… More >
