    On the Dynamics of a Viscoelastic Fluid-Conveying Nanotube

    Ola Adil Ibrahim1, Gunawan Widjaja2, Abdulhussien N. Alattabi3, Krishanveer Singh4, Yasser Fakri Mustafa5, P. A. Krovopuskov6, Mustafa M. Kadhim7,*

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.18, No.4, pp. 1137-1151, 2022, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2022.019921

    Abstract The objective of the presented study is to perform a vibration analysis and investigate the stability of a viscoelastic-fluid conveying pipe with an intermediate support. The mathematical model is elaborated in the framework of the Euler-Bernoulli beam theory in combination with the Kelvin-Voight viscoelastic approach. The resulting differential equation of motion and the related boundary conditions and compatibility conditions in the mid-span support are solved analytically using a power series method. The results show that an intermediate support located at ξs = 0.1 and ξs = 0.5 increases the critical velocity up to 35% and 50.15%, respectively. Also, the non-dimensional… More >

    The Coupled Effect of Temperature Changes and Damage Depth on Natural Frequencies in Beam-Like Structures

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.16, No.1, pp. 15-35, 2022, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2022.020418

    Abstract A significant amount of research is concerned with dynamic modal parameters for damage detection of structural conditions due to their simplicity in use and feasibility. However, their use for damage detection should be performed with special attention, particularly in operational and environmental conditions subjected to temperature changes. Beams in construction industries experience different loading types, such as temperature changes leading to crack initiation and propagation. Changed physical and dynamic properties such as natural frequencies and mode shapes indicate that damage has occurred within the structures. In this study, vibration analysis of cantilever and cantilever simply supported beams has been carried… More >

    Ambient Vibration Testings and Field Investigations of Two Historical Buildings in Europe

    Ehsan Noroozinejad Farsangi1,*, Aleksandra Bogdanovic2, Zoran Rakicevic2, Angela Poposka2, Marta Stojmanovska2

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.14, No.4, pp. 283-301, 2020, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2020.010564

    Abstract In this study, the methodology and results of ambient vibration-based investigations of the historical Tash Mosque in Kosovo and a 3-story historical building in Bulgaria are presented. The investigations include full-scale in situ testing of both structures due to ambient vibrations induced by micro-seismic, wind, traffic, and other human activities. To this aim, Ranger seismometers and Kinemetric products were used. Measurements were performed in both horizontal directions in several points along the structures’ height utilizing a high-speed data acquisition device. All recorded data have been analyzed and processed by the software developed at IZIIS, and then the processed data were… More >

    Free vibrations of magnetoelectric bimorph beam devices by third order shear deformation theory

    A. Alaimo1, A. Milazzo1, C. Orlando1

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.15, No.4, pp. 137-144, 2010, DOI:10.3970/icces.2010.015.137

    Abstract The axial and flexural natural frequencies of magneto-electro-elastic bimorph beam devices are analyzed in the framework of the third-order shear deformation theory (TSDT). Although the assumption of parabolic transverse shear strain distribution along the thickness leads to higher order stress resultants the use of the TSDT allows to avoid the need for shear correction factor. Moreover, since the electric and magnetic potentials strictly depend on the shear strains, a more accurate modeling of the magneto-electric coupling can be achieved by expanding the kinematical model up to the cubic term. The natural frequencies for different mechanical boundary conditions are computed by… More >

    Plane Vibrations in a Transversely Isotropic Infinite Hollow Cylinder Under Effect of the Rotation and Magnetic Field

    F. S. Bayones1, A. M. Abd-Alla2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.113, No.2, pp. 151-170, 2017, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2017.113.155

    Abstract The aim of this paper is to study the effects of rotation and magnetic field on the plane vibrations in a transversely isotropic material of an infinite hollow cylinder. The natural frequency of the plane vibrations in the case of harmonic vibrations has been obtained. The natural frequencies are calculated numerically and the effects of rotation and magnetic field are discussed. The numerical results obtained have been illustrated graphically to understand the behavior of frequency equation with different values of frequency under effects the rotation and magnetic field. Comparison was made with the results obtained in the presence and absence… More >

    Exact Elasticity Solution for Natural Frequencies of Functionally Graded Simply-supported Structures

    S. Brischetto1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.95, No.5, pp. 391-430, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.095.391

    Abstract This paper gives an exact three-dimensional elastic model for the free vibration analysis of functionally graded one-layered and sandwich simply-supported plates and shells. An exact elasticity solution is proposed for the differential equations of equilibrium written in general orthogonal curvilinear coordinates. The equations consider a geometry for shells without simplifications, and allow the analysis of the cases of spherical shell panels, cylindrical shell panels, cylindrical closed shells and plates. The main novelty is the possibility of a general formulation for these geometries. The coefficients in equilibrium equations depend on the thickness coordinate because of the radii of curvature for the… More >

    Eigen-vibrations of Plates made of Functionally Graded Material

    H. Altenbach1, V. A. Eremeyev2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.9, No.2, pp. 153-178, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2009.009.153

    Abstract Within the framework of the direct approach to the plate theory we consider natural oscillations of plates made of functionally graded materials taking into account both the rotatory inertia and the transverse shear stiffness. It is shown that in some cases the results based on the direct approach differ significantly from the classical estimates. The reason for this is the non-classical computation of the transverse shear stiffness. More >

    Orthogonal Tapered Beam Functions in the Study of Free Vibrations for Non-uniform Isotropic Rectangular Plates

    M.F. Liu1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.22, No.2, pp. 97-128, 2011, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2011.022.097

    Abstract A new invented Orthogonal Tapered Beam Functions (OTBFs) have been introduced in this paper and used in accordance with the Rayleigh-Ritz method to determine the natural frequencies and mode shapes of the non-uniform rectangular isotropic plates with varying thickness in one or two directions. The generation of the OTBFs is based on the static solution of a one-dimensional beam problem subjected to constant applied load, and then extends to an orthogonal or orthonomal infinite set of admissible functions by performing the three-term recurrence scheme. A wide range of non-uniform rectangular plate whose domain is referenced by a so-called truncation factor… More >
