  • Instability of functionally graded micro-beams via
           micro-structure-dependent beam theory
    • Authors: Xiaobai Li; Li Li; Yujin Hu
      Pages: 923 - 952
      Abstract: This paper focuses on the buckling behaviors of a micro-scaled bi-directional functionally graded (FG) beam with a rectangular cross-section, which is now widely used in fabricating components of micro-nano-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS/NEMS) with a wide range of aspect ratios. Based on the modified couple stress theory and the principle of minimum potential energy, the governing equations and boundary conditions for a micro-structure-dependent beam theory are derived. The present beam theory incorporates different kinds of higher-order shear assumptions as well as the two familiar beam theories, namely, the Euler-Bernoulli and Timoshenko beam theories. A numerical solution procedure, based on a generalized differential quadrature method (GDQM), is used to calculate the results of the bi-directional FG beams. The effects of the two exponential FG indexes, the higher-order shear deformations, the length scale parameter, the geometric dimensions, and the different boundary conditions on the critical buckling loads are studied in detail, by assuming that Young’s modulus obeys an exponential distribution function in both length and thickness directions. To reach the desired critical buckling load, the appropriate exponential FG indexes and geometric shape of micro-beams can be designed according to the proposed theory.

  • Effect of surface stress and surface-induced stress on behavior of
           piezoelectric nanobeam
    • Authors: Yanmei Yue; Kaiyu Xu; Xudong Zhang; Wenjing Wang
      Pages: 953 - 966
      Abstract: A new continuum model is developed to study the influence of surface stress on the behaviors of piezoelectric nanobeams. Different from existing piezoelectric surface models which only consider the surface properties, the proposed model takes surfaceinduced initial fields into consideration. Due to the fact that the surface-induced initial fields are totally different under various boundary conditions, two kinds of beams, the doubly-clamped beam and the cantilever beam, are analyzed. Furthermore, boundary conditions can affect not only the initial state of the piezoelectric nanobeam but also the forms of the governing equations. Based on the Euler-Bernoulli beam theory, the nonlinear Green-Lagrangian strain-displacement relationship is applied. In addition, the surface area change is also considered in the proposed model. The governing equations of the doubly-clamped and cantilever beams are derived by the energy variation principle. Compared with existing Young-Laplace models, the proposed model for the doubly-clamped beam is similar to the Young-Laplace models. However, the governing equation of the cantilever beam derived by the proposed model is very different from that derived by the Young-Laplace models. The behaviors of piezoelectric nanobeams predicted by these two models also have significant discrepancies, which is owing to the surface-induced initial fields in the bulk beam.

  • Mathematical model of micropolar fluid in two-phase immiscible fluid flow
           through porous channel
    • Authors: P. K. Yadav; S. Jaiswal; B. D. Sharma
      Pages: 993 - 1006
      Abstract: This paper is concerned with the flow of two immiscible fluids through a porous horizontal channel. The fluid in the upper region is the micropolar fluid/the Eringen fluid, and the fluid in the lower region is the Newtonian viscous fluid. The flow is driven by a constant pressure gradient. The presence of micropolar fluids introduces additional rotational parameters. Also, the porous material considered in both regions has two different permeabilities. A direct method is used to obtain the analytical solution of the concerned problem. In the present problem, the effects of the couple stress, the micropolarity parameter, the viscosity ratio, and the permeability on the velocity profile and the microrotational velocity are discussed. It is found that all the physical parameters play an important role in controlling the translational velocity profile and the microrotational velocity. In addition, numerical values of the different flow parameters are computed. The effects of the different flow parameters on the flow rate and the wall shear stress are also discussed graphically.

  • Developing theory of probability density function for stochastic modeling
           of turbulent gas-particle flows
    • Authors: Lixing Zhou
      Pages: 1019 - 1030
      Abstract: Turbulent gas-particle flows are studied by a kinetic description using a probability density function (PDF). Unlike other investigators deriving the particle Reynolds stress equations using the PDF equations, the particle PDF transport equations are directly solved either using a finite-difference method for two-dimensional (2D) problems or using a Monte-Carlo (MC) method for three-dimensional (3D) problems. The proposed differential stress model together with the PDF (DSM-PDF) is used to simulate turbulent swirling gas-particle flows. The simulation results are compared with the experimental results and the second-order moment (SOM) two-phase modeling results. All of these simulation results are in agreement with the experimental results, implying that the PDF approach validates the SOM two-phase turbulence modeling. The PDF model with the SOM-MC method is used to simulate evaporating gas-droplet flows, and the simulation results are in good agreement with the experimental results.

  • Mathematical modelling of axonal microtubule bundles under dynamic torsion
    • Authors: J. Y. Wu; Hong Yuan; L. Y. Li
      Pages: 829 - 844
      Abstract: Owing to its viscoelastic nature, axon exhibits a stress rate-dependent me- chanical behavior. An extended tension-shear chain model with Kelvin-Voigt viscoelas- ticity is developed to illustrate the micromechanical behavior of the axon under dynamic torsional conditions. Theoretical closed-form expressions are derived to predict the de- formation, stress transfer, and failure mechanism between microtubule (MT) and tau protein while the axon is sheared dynamically. The results obtained from the present an- alytical solutions demonstrate how the MT-tau interface length, spacing between the tau proteins, and loading rate affect the mechanical properties of axon. Moreover, it is found that the MTs are more prone to rupture due to the contributions from the viscoelastic effects. Under the torsional force, the MTs are so long that the stress concentrates at the loaded end where axonal MTs will break. This MT-tau protein dynamics model can help to understand the underlying pathology and molecular mechanisms of axonal injury. Additionally, the emphasis of this paper is on the micromechanical behavior of axon, whereas this theoretical model can be equally applicable to other soft or hard tissues, owning the similar fibrous structure.

  • A novel method for chemistry tabulation of strained premixed/stratified
           flames based on principal component analysis
    • Authors: Peng Tang; Hongda Zhang; Taohong Ye; Zhou Yu; Zhaoyang Xia
      Pages: 855 - 866
      Abstract: The principal component analysis (PCA) is used to analyze the high dimensional chemistry data of laminar premixed/stratified flames under strain effects. The first few principal components (PCs), which have larger contribution ratios, are chosen as the tabulated scalars to build the look-up chemistry table. Prior tests show that the strained premixed flame structure can be well reconstructed. To highlight the physical meanings of the tabulated scalars in the stratified flames, a modified PCA method is developed, where the mixture fraction is used to replace one of the PCs with the highest correlation coefficient with a mixture fraction. The other two tabulated scalars are then modified with the Schmidt orthogonalization. The modified tabulated scalars not only have clear physical meanings, but also contain passive scalars. The PCA method has good commonality, and can be extended for building the thermo-chemistry table including strain rate effects when different fuels are used.

  • Lattice Boltzmann simulation of MHD natural convection in a cavity with
           porous media and sinusoidal temperature distribution
    • Authors: K. Javaherdeh; A. Najjarnezami
      Abstract: The lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) is used to simulate the effect of magnetic field on the natural convection in a porous cavity. The sidewalls of the cavity are heated sinusoidally with a phase derivation, whereas the top and bottom walls are thermally insulated. Numerical simulation is performed, and the effects of the pertinent parameters, e.g., the Hartmann number, the porosity, the Darcy number, and the phase deviation, on the fluid flow and heat transfer are investigated. The results show that the heat transfer is affected by the temperature distribution on the sidewalls clearly. When the Hartmann number is 0, the maximum average Nusselt number is obtained at the phase deviation 90◦. Moreover, the heat transfer enhances when the Darcy number and porosity increase, while reduces when the Hartman number increases.

  • Jeffrey fluid flow due to curved stretching surface with Cattaneo-Christov
           heat flux
    • Authors: T. Hayat; S. Qayyum; M. Imtiaz; A. Alsaedi
      Abstract: The two-dimensional (2D) motion of the Jeffrey fluid by the curved stretching sheet coiled in a circle is investigated. The non-Fourier heat flux model is used for the heat transfer analysis. Feasible similarity variables are used to transform the highly nonlinear ordinary equations to partial differential equations (PDEs). The homotopy technique is used for the convergence of the velocity and temperature equations. The effects of the involved parameters on the physical properties of the fluid are described graphically. The results show that the curvature parameter is an increasing function of velocity and temperature, and the temperature is a decreasing function of the thermal relaxation time. Besides, the Deborah number has a reverse effect on the pressure and surface drag force.

  • Investigation of Coulomb force effects on ethylene glycol based nanofluid
           laminar flow in a porous enclosure
    • Authors: M. Sheikholeslami
      Abstract: Forced convection heat transfer of ethylene glycol based nanofluid with Fe3O4 inside a porous medium is studied using the electric field. The control volume based finite element method (CVFEM) is selected for numerical simulation. The impact of the radiation parameter (Rd), the supplied voltage (Δφ), the volume fraction of nanofluid (ϕ), the Darcy number (Da), and the Reynolds number (Re) on nanofluid treatment is demonstrated. Results prove that thermal radiation increases the temperature gradient near the positive electrode. Distortion of isotherms increases with the enhance of the Darcy number and the Coulomb force.

  • Quadratic convective flow of radiated nano-Jeffrey liquid subject to
           multiple convective conditions and Cattaneo-Christov double diffusion
    • Authors: P. B. Sampath Kumar; B. Mahanthesh; B. J. Gireesha; S. A. Shehzad
      Abstract: A nonlinear flow of Jeffrey liquid with Cattaneo-Christov heat flux is investigated in the presence of nanoparticles. The features of thermophoretic and Brownian movement are retained. The effects of nonlinear radiation, magnetohydrodynamic (MHD), and convective conditions are accounted. The conversion of governing equations into ordinary differential equations is prepared via stretching transformations. The consequent equations are solved using the Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg (RKF) method. Impacts of physical constraints on the liquid velocity, the temperature, and the nanoparticle volume fraction are analyzed through graphical illustrations. It is established that the velocity of the liquid and its associated boundary layer width increase with the mixed convection parameter and the Deborah number.

  • The effect of initial geometric imperfection on the nonlinear resonance of
           functionally graded carbon nanotube-reinforced composite rectangular
    • Authors: R. Gholami; R. Ansari
      Abstract: The purpose of the present study is to examine the impact of initial geometric imperfection on the nonlinear dynamical characteristics of functionally graded carbon nanotube-reinforced composite (FG-CNTRC) rectangular plates under a harmonic excitation transverse load. The considered plate is assumed to be made of matrix and single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs). The rule of mixture is employed to calculate the effective material properties of the plate. Within the framework of the parabolic shear deformation plate theory with taking the influence of transverse shear deformation and rotary inertia into account, Hamilton’s principle is utilized to derive the geometrically nonlinear mathematical formulation including the governing equations and corresponding boundary conditions of initially imperfect FG-CNTRC plates. Afterwards, with the aid of an efficient multistep numerical solution methodology, the frequency-amplitude and forcing-amplitude curves of initially imperfect FG-CNTRC rectangular plates with various edge conditions are provided, demonstrating the influence of initial imperfection, geometrical parameters, and edge conditions. It is displayed that an increase in the initial geometric imperfection intensifies the softening-type behavior of system, while no softening behavior can be found in the frequency-amplitude curve of a perfect plate.

  • Optimization of a global seventh-order dissipative compact
           finite-difference scheme by a genetic algorithm
    • Authors: Yu Lin; Yaming Chen; Chuanfu Xu; Xiaogang Deng
      Abstract: A global seventh-order dissipative compact finite-difference scheme is optimized in terms of time stability. The dissipative parameters appearing in the boundary closures are assumed to be different, resulting in an optimization problem with several parameters determined by applying a generic algorithm. The optimized schemes are analyzed carefully from the aspects of the eigenvalue distribution, the ε-pseudospectra, the short time behavior, and the Fourier analysis. Numerical experiments for the Euler equations are used to show the effectiveness of the final recommended scheme.

  • An analytical solution for the stress field and stress intensity factor in
           an infinite plane containing an elliptical hole with two unequal aligned
    • Authors: M. Hajimohamadi; R. Ghajar
      Abstract: The existing analytical solutions are extended to obtain the stress fields and the stress intensity factors (SIFs) of two unequal aligned cracks emanating from an elliptical hole in an infinite isotropic plane. A conformal mapping is proposed and combined with the complex variable method. Due to some difficulties in the calculation of the stress function, the mapping function is approximated and simplified via the applications of the series expansion. To validate the obtained solution, several examples are analyzed with the proposed method, the finite element method, etc. In addition, the effects of the lengths of the cracks and the ratio of the semi-axes of the elliptical hole (a/b) on the SIFs are studied. The results show that the present analytical solution is applicable to the SIFs for small cracks.

  • A Lagrangian criterion of unsteady flow separation for two-dimensional
           periodic flows
    • Authors: Shuaibin Han; Shuhai Zhang; Hanxin Zhang
      Abstract: The present paper proposes a Lagrangian criterion of unsteady flow separation for two-dimensional periodic flows based on the principle of weighted averaging zero skin-friction given by Haller (HALLER, G. Exact theory of unsteady separation for two-dimensional flows. Journal of Fluid Mechanics, 512, 257–311 (2004)). By analyzing the distribution of the finite-time Lyapunov exponent (FTLE) along the no-slip wall, it can be found that the periodic separation takes place at the point of the zero FTLE. This new criterion is verified with an analytical solution of the separation bubble and a numerical simulation of lid-driven cavity flows.

  • Recursive super-convergence computation for multi-dimensional problems via
           one-dimensional element energy projection technique
    • Authors: Si Yuan; Yue Wu; Qinyan Xing
      Abstract: This paper presents a strategy for computation of super-convergent solutions of multi-dimensional problems in the finite element method (FEM) by recursive application of the one-dimensional (1D) element energy projection (EEP) technique. The main idea is to conceptually treat multi-dimensional problems as generalized 1D problems, based on which the concepts of generalized 1D FEM and its consequent EEP formulae have been developed in a unified manner. Equipped with these concepts, multi-dimensional problems can be recursively discretized in one dimension at each step, until a fully dis-cretized standard finite element (FE) model is reached. This conceptual dimension-by-dimension (D-by-D) discretization procedure is entirely equivalent to a full FE discretiza-tion. As a reverse D-by-D recovery procedure, by using the unified EEP formulae together with proper extraction of the generalized nodal solutions, super-convergent displacements and first derivatives for two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) problems can be obtained over the domain. Numerical examples of 3D Poisson’s equation and elasticity problem are given to verify the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed strategy.

  • Characterization of mechanical properties of aluminum cast alloy at
           elevated temperature
    • Authors: Shuiqiang Zhang; Yichi Zhang; Ming Chen; Yanjun Wang; Quan Cui; Rong Wu; D. Arola; Dongsheng Zhang
      Abstract: The tensile response, the low cycle fatigue (LCF) resistance, and the creep behavior of an aluminum (Al) cast alloy are studied at ambient and elevated temperatures. A non-contact real-time optical extensometer based on the digital image correlation (DIC) is developed to achieve strain measurements without damage to the specimen. The optical extensometer is validated and used to monitor dynamic strains during the mechanical experiments. Results show that Young’s modulus of the cast alloy decreases with the increasing temperature, and the percentage elongation to fracture at 100 °C is the lowest over the temperature range evaluated from 25 °C to 300 °C. In the LCF test, the fatigue strength coefficient decreases, whereas the fatigue strength exponent increases with the rising temperature. The fatigue ductility coefficient and exponent reach maximum values at 100 °C. As expected, the resistance to creep decreases with the increasing temperature and changes from 200 °C to 300 °C.

  • Asymptotic solutions for the asymmetric flow in a channel with porous
           retractable walls under a transverse magnetic field
    • Authors: Hongxia Guo; Ping Lin; Lin Li
      Abstract: The self-similarity solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations are constructed for an incompressible laminar flow through a uniformly porous channel with retractable walls under a transverse magnetic field. The flow is driven by the expanding or contracting walls with different permeability. The velocities of the asymmetric flow at the upper and lower walls are different in not only the magnitude but also the direction. The asymptotic solutions are well constructed with the method of boundary layer correction in two cases with large Reynolds numbers, i.e., both walls of the channel are with suction, and one of the walls is with injection while the other one is with suction. For small Reynolds number cases, the double perturbation method is used to construct the asymptotic solution. All the asymptotic results are finally verified by numerical results.

  • Calculation of thermal physical parameters of dissociated air by the
           dissociation degree method
    • Authors: Yaopeng Zhao; Wei Cao
      Abstract: The high temperature gas occurs behind shock or near the wall surface of vehicle in the hypersonic flight. As the temperature exceeds 2000K, 4000K, respectively, O2 and N2 molecules are successively dissociated. Because of variable components at different temperatures and pressures, the dissociated air is no longer a perfect gas. In this paper, a new method is developed to calculate accurate thermal physical parameters with the dissociation degree providing the thermochemical equilibrium procedure. Based on the dissociation degree, it is concluded that few numbers of equations and the solutions are easily obtained. In addition, a set of formulas relating the parameter to the dissociation degree are set up. The thermodynamic properties of dissociated air containing four-species, O2 molecule and N2 molecule, O atom and N atom, are studied with the new method, and the results are consistent with those with the traditional equilibrium constant method. It is shown that this method is reliable for solving thermal physical parameters easily and directly.

  • Buckling of a sandwich symmetrical circular plate with varying mechanical
           properties of the core
    • Authors: E. Magnucka-Blandzi; K. Wisniewska-Mleczko; M. J. Smyczynski; P. Kedzia
      Abstract: This paper is devoted to analytical and numerical studies of global buckling of a sandwich circular plate. The mechanical properties of the plate core vary along its thickness, remaining constant in the facings. The middle surface of the plate is its symmetrical plane. The mathematical model of the plate is presented. The field of displacements is formulated using the proposed nonlinear hypothesis that generalizes the classical hypotheses. The equations of equilibrium are formulated based on the principle of stationary total potential energy. The proposed mathematical model of the displacements considers the shear effect. The numerical model of the plate is also formulated with a view to verify the analytical one. Numerical calculations are carried out for the chosen family of plates. The values of the critical load obtained by the analytical and numerical methods are compared. The effects of the material properties of the core and the change of the plate radius on the critical load intensity are presented.
