    The Influence of Gravitational Field on Generalized Thermoelasticity with Two-Temperature under Three-Phase-Lag Model

    Mohamed I. A. Othman1,2,3, W. M. Hasona2,4, Nehal T. Mansour2,5

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.45, No.3, pp. 203-220, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2015.045.203

    Abstract The problem of the generalized thermoelastic medium for three different theories under the effect of a gravitational field is investigated. The Lord- Shulman, Green-Naghdi III, three-phase-lag theories are discussed with twotemperature. The normal mode analysis is used to obtain the analytical expressions of the displacement components, force stress, thermodynamic temperature and conductive temperature. The numerical results are given and presented graphically, when the thermal force is applied. Comparisons are made with the results predicted by three-phase-lag model, Green-Naghdi III and Lord-Shulman theories in the presence and absence of gravity as well as two temperature. More >

    Taguching the Atmospheric Plasma Spraying Process: Influence of Processing Factors on Droplet Impact Properties Obtained on Dense ZrO2 and H2Ar75% Plasma Gas

    Ridha Djebali1, Mohsen Toujani2, Bernard Pateyron3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.37, No.3, pp. 147-160, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2013.037.147

    Abstract In this paper a study of the atmospheric plasma spraying process was conducted. The Jets&Poudres code was used to solve the partial differential equations for the conservation of mass, momentum and energy involved in the problem together with the K-e turbulent model. The Taguchi technique was used to study the influence of processing factors on droplet impact properties obtained on dense zirconia (ZrO2) under H2Ar75% plasma gas that allow optimal functioning condition. The test of the operating parameters for the studied ranges showed that the "thermal power" factor plays a key role on the state of sprayed More >

    Influence of Scale Specific Features on the Progressive Damage of Woven Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs)

    K. C. Liu1, S. M. Arnold2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.35, No.1, pp. 35-65, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2013.035.035

    Abstract It is well known that failure of a material is a locally driven event. In the case of ceramic matrix composites (CMCs), significant variations in the microstructure of the composite exist and their significance on both deformation and life response need to be assessed. Examples of these variations include changes in the fiber tow shape, tow shifting/nesting and voids within and between tows. In the present work, the influence of many of these scale specific architectural features of woven ceramic composite are examined stochastically at both the macroscale (woven repeating unit cell (RUC)) and structural More >

    Influence of Stress Singularities on Scaling of Fracture of Metal-Composite Hybrid Structures

    Jia-Liang Le1, Bing Xue1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.34, No.3, pp. 251-264, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2013.034.251

    Abstract It has been recently shown that the nominal structural strength of metal-composite structures depends on the structure size, and such dependence is strongly influenced by the stress singularities. Nevertheless, previous studies only focused on structures that exhibit very strong stress singularities, which are close to the crack-like stress singularity. In the actual engineering designs, due to the mismatch of material properties and complex structural geometries, many metalcomposite structures may contain stress singularities that are much weaker than the crack-like stress singularity. This paper presents a numerical study on the size dependence of scaling of fracture… More >

    Numerical Simulation of Fluid-Structure Interaction of LNG Prestressed Storage Tank under Seismic Influence

    X. H. Du1, X. P. Shen1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.20, No.3, pp. 225-242, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2010.020.225

    Abstract Aim of this paper is to estimate the integrity of liquefied natural gas (LNG) prestressed storage tank under seismic influence. The coupled Eulerian-Lagrangian (CEL) analysis technique is used to simulate the fluid-structure interaction between LNG and the cylinder of LNG prestressed storage tank. The 3-D model of LNG has been dispersed by Eulerian mesh that is different from traditional analysis method which is called the added mass method. Meanwhile, both of the 3-D models of prestressed rebar and concrete structure are dispersed by Lagrangian mesh. Following conclusions are obtained: 1) Natural frequency of the whole… More >

    The Influence of Structural Defect on Mechanical Properties and Fracture Behaviors of Carbon Nanotubes

    Hsien-Chie Cheng1, Yu-Chen Hsu2, Wen-Hwa Chen2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.11, No.2, pp. 127-146, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2009.011.127

    Abstract Due to the limitation of fabrication technologies nowadays, structural or atomistic defects are often perceived in carbon nanotubes (CNTs) during the manufacturing process. The main goal of the study aims at providing a systematic investigation of the effects of atomistic defects on the nanomechanical properties and fracture behaviors of single-walled CNTs (SWCNTs) using molecular dynamics (MD) simulation. Furthermore, the correlation between local stress distribution and fracture evolution is studied. Key parameters and factors under investigation include the number, type (namely the vacancy and Stone-Wales defects), location and distribution of defects. Results show that the nanomechanical More >

    Influence of Temperature and High Electric Field on Power Consumption by Piezoelectric Actuated Integrated Structure

    Deepak A Apte1, Ranjan Ganguli1,2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.10, No.2, pp. 139-162, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2009.010.139

    Abstract The influence of electric field and temperature on power consumption of piezoelectric actuated integrated structure is studied by using a single degree of freedom mass-spring-damper system model coupled with a piezoactuator. The material lead zirconate titanate, is considered as it is capable of producing relatively high strains (e.g., 3000με). Actuators are often subject to high electric fields to increase the induced strain produced, resulting in field dependant piezoelectric coefficient d31, dielectric coefficient ε33 and dissipation factor δ. Piezostructures are also likely to be used across a wide range of temperatures in aerospace and undersea operations. Again, the More >
