    Fracture Characterization of High-Density Polyethylene Materials Using the Energetic Criterias

    M.N.D. Cherief1, M. Elmeguenni1, M. Benguediab1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.51, No.3, pp. 187-201, 2016, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2016.051.187

    Abstract Impact behavior of polymers has received considerable attention in recent years, and much work based on fracture mechanic approaches has been carried out. In this paper, fracture behavior in large deformation of a high density polyethylene (HDPE) materials was investigated through experimental impact testing on single edge notched specimen (SENB) and by using theoretical and analytical fracture criteria concepts. Moreover, a review of the main fracture criteria is given in order to characterize the toughness of this polymer in the both cases (static and dynamic). The fractured specimens obtained from the Charpy impact test were More >

    On the Use of a Lattice Model for Analyzing of In-Plane Vibration of Thin Plates

    B. Šavija1, E. Schlangen1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.48, No.3, pp. 181-202, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2015.048.181

    Abstract In this paper, a novel approach for simulating in-plane vibration of thin plates is proposed. It is based on the spectral element method (SEM) used within a lattice modeling framework. First, derivation of a frequency dependent dynamic stiffness matrix for a spectral beam element is presented. Then, the lattice modeling concept is introduced. In the model, the two-dimensional plate is discretized as a set of (one dimensional) spectral beam elements connected at the ends. The proposed approach is then used for modal analysis of rectangular plates of different aspect ratios (1 and 2) and boundary More >

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.48, No.2, pp. 77-90, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2015.048.077

    Abstract Reasonable width design of narrow coal pillar is the key for ensuring stability of surrounding rock in the roadway driving along next goaf. Based on movement characteristics of overlying strata in gob-side entry, the paper establishes the mechanical model of surrounding rock structure for roadway driving along next goaf, and analyzes the interaction mechanism between key blocks and coal pillar. Besides, in allusion to the mechanical equilibrium of key block B in basic roof, the stability coefficients K1 and K2 of key block B and sensitive coefficient of influencing factor are introduced. When the stability coefficient K1 is… More >

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.47, No.3, pp. 203-215, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2015.047.203

    Abstract Gas fracturing technology is the key to the exploration for unconventional petroleum resources and other engineering industries, so the research on the coupled gas-solid-thermal model during rock damage has the important significance to the development of gas fracturing technology. By introducing rock damage variable, the coupled gas-solid-thermal model during rock damage is established in this paper, besides, the rock damage constitutive is written with MATLAB software, which is embedded in the multi-physics coupling software COMSOL in the process of numerical computation. Based on this, the damage rule of rock mass around drilling under high pressure… More >

    Anti-plane Circular Nano-inclusion Problem with Electric Field Gradient and Strain Gradient Effects

    Shasha Yang, Shengping Shen1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.40, No.3, pp. 219-239, 2014, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2014.040.219

    Abstract As well known, gradient theories can describe size effects that are important in nano-scale problems. In this paper, we analyze the Eshelby-type anti-plane inclusion problem embedded in infinite dielectric body by considering both strain gradient and electric field gradient effects to account for the size effect and high-order electromechanical coupling effect. The size-dependent Eshelby and Eshelby-like tensor, strain, stress, electric field and electric displacement components are derived explicitly by means of Green's function method. Theoretical results indicate that strain and electric field are decoupled for anti-plane inclusion problem while stress field and electric displacement are More >

    Numerical Study on Mechanical Properties of Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete by Statistical Second-order Two-scale Method

    Y. Zhang1, Y. F. Nie2, Y. T. Wu1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.40, No.3, pp. 203-218, 2014, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2014.040.203

    Abstract The present study aims to evaluate the mechanical properties of steel fiber reinforced concrete (SFRC) by the statistical second-order two-scale (SSOTS) method. At first, the representation for microstructure of SFRC is described by a concept of statistical screen. According to the microstructure representation, the SSOTS method is displayed in a concise way. This method is on the basis of asymptotic expansion homogenization and Monte Carlo method, and can calculate the local strain and stress field through the two-order displacement solution. As the classical homogenization method, the expression of homogenized elastic modulus is derived analytically. Then More >

    Effect of Gravitational Field and Temperature Dependent Properties on Two-Temperature Thermoelastic Medium with Voids under G-N Theory

    Mohamed I. A. Othman1, Magda E. M. Zidan1, Mohamed I. M. Hilal1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.40, No.3, pp. 179-201, 2014, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2014.040.179

    Abstract This investigation is aimed to study the two dimensional problem of thermoelastic medium with voids under the effect of the gravity. The modulus of elasticity is taken as a linear function of the reference temperature and employing the two-temperature generalized thermoelasticity. The problem is studied in the context of Green-Naghdi (G-N) theory of types II and III. The normal mode analysis method is used to obtain the exact expressions for the physical quantities which have been shown graphically by comparison between two types of the (G-N) theory in the presence and the absence of the More >

    Optimization of Johnson-Cook Constitutive Model for Lead-free Solder Using Genetic Algorithm and Finite Element Simulations

    D.S.Liu1, C.L.Hsu1,2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.40, No.3, pp. 165-178, 2014, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2014.040.165

    Abstract To ensure the reliability of microelectronics packages, the high strain rate deformation behavior of the solder joints must be properly understood. Accordingly, the present study proposes a hybrid experimental / numerical method for determining the optimal constants of the Johnson-Cook (J-C) constitutive model for 96.5Sn-3Ag-0.5Cu (SAC305) solder alloy. In the proposed approach, FEM simulations based on the J-C model are performed to describe the load-time response of an SAC305 ball solder joint under an impact velocity of 0.5 m/s. The optimal values of the constitutive model are then determined using an iterative Genetic Algorithm approach More >

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.17, No.2, pp. 149-174, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2010.017.149

    Abstract A common sample geometry used to study shear localization is the "tophat": an axi-symmetric sample with an upper "hat" portion and a lower "brim" portion. The gage section lies between the hat and brim. The gage section length is on the order of 0.9 mm with deformation imposed through a Split-Hopkinson Pressure Bar system at maximum top-to-bottom velocity in the range of 10-25 m/sec. Detailed metallographic analysis has been performed on sections of the samples to quantify the topology and deformation state of the material after large deformation shear. These experiments performed with polycrystalline tantalum… More >

    T.M. Hatem1, M.A. Zikry1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.17, No.2, pp. 127-148, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2010.017.127

    Abstract A three-dimensional multiple-slip dislocation-density-based crystalline formulation, and specialized finite-element formulations were used to investigate dislocation-density evolution and crack behavior in single-packet lath martensite in high strength martensitic steels. The formulation is based on accounting for variant morphologies and orientations, and initial dislocations-densities that are uniquely inherent to martensitic microstructures. The effects of loading plane with respect to the orientation o the habit plane are investigated. Furthermore, the formulation was used to investigate single-packet microstructure mapped directly from SEM/EBSD images of maraging and ausformed martensitic steel alloys. This analysis underscores that shear pipe effects in martensitic More >
