    Smitha Gopinath1,2, S. Meenu3, A. Ramach,ra Murthy1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.51, No.2, pp. 81-103, 2016, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2016.051.081

    Abstract This paper presents experimental and analytical investigations on concrete beams reinforced with basalt fiber reinforced polymer (BFRP) and steel fibers without stirrups. Independent behaviour of BFRP reinforced beams and steel fiber reinforced beams were evaluated and the effect of combining BFRP bars and steel fiber was investigated in detail. It is found that combining steel fibers with BFRP could change the shear failure of BFRP reinforced beam to flexural failure. Further, the existing analytical models were reviewed and compared to predict the shear strength of both FRP reinforced and steel fiber reinforced beams. Based on More >

    Reflection of PlaneWaves from Electro-magneto-thermoelastic Half-space with a Dual-Phase-Lag Model

    A. M. Abd-Alla1,2,3, Mohamed I. A. Othman1,4, S. M. Abo-Dahab1,5

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.51, No.2, pp. 63-79, 2016, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2016.051.063

    Abstract The aim of this paper is to study the reflection of plane harmonic waves from a semi-infinite elastic solid under the effect of magnetic field in a vacuum. The expressions for the reflection coefficients, which are the relations of the amplitudes of the reflected waves to the amplitude of the incident waves, are obtained. Similarly, the reflection coefficient ratio variations with the angle of incident under different conditions are shown graphically. Comparisons are made with the results predicted by the dual-phase-lag model and Lord-Shulman theory in the presence and absence of magnetic field. More >

    ZichunYang1, Gaohui Su1,2, Bin Chen1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.51, No.1, pp. 43-62, 2016, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2016.051.043

    Abstract The molecular dynamics (MD) simulations were used to understand the heat transfer process between the gas phase and the solid skeleton in the nanoporous silica aerogels. The amorphous silica nanoparticles were generated by the MD simulations and the energy accommodation coefficient (EAC) between the gases and the nanoparticles was calculated based on the results of the nonequilibrium molecular dynamics (NEMD) simulations. The apparent thermal conductivity (ATC) of the gases between the heat source and heat sink was also obtained. The effects of the temperature, the particle diameter and the molecule type on the EAC and… More >

    Research on the Damage of Porosityand Permeabilitydue to Perforation on Sandstone in the Compaction Zone

    Shifeng Xue1,2, Xiuxing Zhu1,2, Lin Zhang3, Shenghu Zhu4, Guigen Ye1,5

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.51, No.1, pp. 21-42, 2016, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2016.051.021

    Abstract A perforating hole is a channel through which the oil and gas in a reservoir pass into the production well bore. During the process of perforating due to explosion, the surrounding sandstone will be damaged to a certain extent, which will increase the well bore skin and lead to the decrease of production consequently. In this work a mechanical model of perforating damage is developed to describe the influences of perforating due to explosion on the porosity and permeability of the surrounding sandstone near the compaction zone. Based on this developed model, the important data… More >

    Exact Solutions and Mode Transition for Out-of-Plane Vibrations of Nonuniform Beams with Variable Curvature

    Sen-Yung Lee1, Shueei-Muh Lin2,3, Kai-Ping Chang1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.51, No.1, pp. 1-19, 2016, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2016.051.001

    Abstract The two coupled governing differential equations for the out-of-plane vibrations of non-uniform beams with variable curvature are derived via the Hamilton's principle. These equations are expressed in terms of flexural and torsional displacements simultaneously. In this study, the analytical method is proposed. Firstly, two physical parameters are introduced to simplify the analysis. One derives the explicit relations between the flexural and the torsional displacements which can also be used to reduce the difficulty in experimental measurements. Based on the relation, the two governing characteristic differential equations with variable coefficients can be uncoupled into a sixth-order More >

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.49-50, No.1, pp. 31-45, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2015.049.031

    Abstract The polyvinyl chloride PVC is a polymer material widely used for a large variety of applications. The present work focuses on the identification of the physical processes responsible for the mechanical properties of the PVC containing different crystallinities rate applied in large deformation and different strain rates. In order to understand the behavior of the PVC, a thermodynamic modeling is needed. Therefore, the contribution of this approach was demonstrated by experiment and numerical modeling. This comparative study demonstrates that the proposed model provides better agreement with experimental evidence. More >

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.49-50, No.1, pp. 1-11, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2015.049.001

    Abstract Investigations of the microstructural evolution of Titanium (Ti) alloys during high temperature processes and heat treatment are attracting more attention due to wide variety of applications for such alloys. In most of these processes the Titanium alloys are subjected to fast heating or cooling rates. In this paper, Monte Carlo simulation is used to simulate the grain growth kinetics of Ti-6Al-4V alloy during fast heat treatment. Here, Monte Carlo simulation of grain growth is based on the Q-state Potts model. Our model is calibrated using the parabolic grain growth law, dn-d0n = kt, where the empirical More >

    Xiaoming Zhang1, Jiangong Yu1,2, Min Zhang1, Dengpan Zhang1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.48, No.3, pp. 163-179, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2015.048.163

    Abstract The characteristics of the guided waves propagation in functionally graded rods with rectangular cross-section (finite width and height) under initial stress are investigated in this paper based on Biot’s theory of incremental deformation. An extended orthogonal polynomial approach is present to solve the coupled wave equations with variable coefficients. By comparisons with the available results of a rectangular aluminum rod, the validity of the present approach is illustrated. The dispersion curves and displacement profiles of various rectangular functionally graded rods are calculated to reveal the wave characteristics, and the effects of different width to height More >

    Investigating Creep Performance and Predicting Rupture Time for Rotating FGM Disc under Different Thermal Gradients

    K. Khanna1,2, V.K. Gupta3, S.P. Nigam1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.48, No.3, pp. 147-161, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2015.048.147

    Abstract A mathematical model is developed to describe the steady state creep in a rotating Al-SiCp disc having a non-linear thickness profile and distribution of SiC particles along the radial direction. The model is used to investigate the effect of imposing three different kinds of radial temperature profiles viz. linear, parabolic and exponential with fixed values of inner and outer surface temperatures, on the creep stresses and strain rates. It is noticed that by increasing the temperature exponent (nT), the radial stress (over the entire radius) and tangential stress (near the inner radius) increase in the disc.… More >

    Guoquan Nie1,2, Jinxi Liu1, Ming Li1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.48, No.3, pp. 133-145, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2015.048.133

    Abstract Propagation of SH-type guided waves in a layered structure with an invariant initial stress is studied, where a piezoelectric thin layer is perfectly bonded on a piezomagnetic substrate. Both the layer and the substrate possess transversely isotropic property. The dispersion relations of SH waves are obtained for four kinds of different electro-magnetic boundary conditions. The effects of initial stress, thickness ratio and electro-magnetic boundary conditions on the propagation behaviors are analyzed in detail. The numerical results show that: 1) The positive initial stresses make the phase velocity increasing, while the negative initial stresses decrease the More >
