  • Dynamical modeling and non-planar coupled behavior of inclined CFRP cables
           under simultaneous internal and external resonances
    • Abstract: A dynamic model for an inclined carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) cable is established, and the linear and nonlinear dynamic behaviors are investigated in detail. The partial differential equations for both the in-plane and out-of-plane dynamics of the inclined CFRP cable are obtained by Hamilton’s principle. The linear eigenvalues are explored theoretically. Then, the ordinary differential equations for analyzing the dynamic behaviors are obtained by the Galerkin integral and dimensionless treatments. The steady-state solutions of the nonlinear equations are obtained by the multiple scale method (MSM) and the Newton-Raphson method. The frequency- and force-response curves are used to investigate the dynamic behaviors of the inclined CFRP cable under simultaneous internal (between the lowest in-plane and out-of-plane modes) and external resonances, i.e., the primary resonances induced by the excitations of the in-plane mode, the out-of-plane mode, and both the in-plane mode and the out-of-plane mode, respectively. The effects of the key parameters, e.g., Young’s modulus, the excitation amplitude, and the frequency on the dynamic behaviors, are discussed in detail. Some interesting phenomena and results are observed and concluded.

  • Free vibration of a sagged cable with attached discrete elements
    • Abstract: An algorithm is presented to analyze the free vibration in a system composed of a cable with discrete elements, e.g., a concentrated mass, a translational spring, and a harmonic oscillator. The vibrations in the cable are modeled and analyzed with the Lagrange multiplier formalism. Some fragments of the investigated structure are modeled with continuously distributed parameters, while the other fragments of the structure are modeled with discrete elements. In this case, the linear model of a cable with a small sag serves as a continuous model, while the elements, e.g., a translational spring, a concentrated mass, and a harmonic oscillator, serve as the discrete elements. The method is based on the analytical solutions in relation to the constituent elements, which, when once derived, can be used to formulate the equations describing various complex systems compatible with an actual structure. The numerical analysis shows that, the method proposed in this paper can be successfully used to select the optimal parameters of a system composed of a cable with discrete elements, e.g., to detune the frequency resonance of some structures.

  • Swelling-induced finite bending of functionally graded pH-responsive
           hydrogels: a semi-analytical method
    • Abstract: Recently, pH-sensitive hydrogels have been utilized in the diverse applications including sensors, switches, and actuators. In order to have continuous stress and deformation fields, a new semi-analytical approach is developed to predict the swelling induced finite bending for a functionally graded (FG) layer composed of a pH-sensitive hydrogel, in which the cross-link density is continuously distributed along the thickness direction under the plane strain condition. Without considering the intermediary virtual reference, the initial state is mapped into the deformed configuration in a circular shape by utilizing a total deformation gradient tensor stemming from the inhomogeneous swelling of an FG layer in response to the variation of the pH value of the solvent. To enlighten the capability of the presented analytical method, the finite element method (FEM) is used to verify the accuracy of the analytical results in some case studies. The perfect agreement confirms the accuracy of the presented method. Due to the applicability of FG pH-sensitive hydrogels, some design factors such as the semi-angle, the bending curvature, the aspect ratio, and the distributions of deformation and stress fields are studied. Furthermore, the tangential free-stress axes are illustrated in deformed configuration.

  • Flat-plate hypersonic boundary-layer flow instability and transition
           prediction considering air dissociation
    • Abstract: The effects of air dissociation on flat-plate hypersonic boundary-layer flow instability and transition prediction are studied. The air dissociation reactions are assumed to be in the chemical equilibrium. Based on the flat-plate boundary layer, the flow stability is analyzed for the Mach numbers from 8 to 15. The results reveal that the consideration of air dissociation leads to a decrease in the unstable region of the first-mode wave and an increase in the maximum growth rate of the second mode. High frequencies appear earlier in the third mode than in the perfect gas model, and the unstable region moves to a lower frequency region. When the Mach number increases, the second-mode wave dominates the transition process, and the third-mode wave has little effect on the transition. Moreover, when the Mach number increases from 8 to 12, the N-factor envelope becomes higher, and the transition is promoted. However, when the Mach number exceeds 12, the N-factor envelope becomes lower, and the transition is delayed. The N-factor envelope decreases gradually with the increase in the altitude or Mach number.

  • Centered simple waves for the two-dimensional pseudo-steady isothermal
           flow around a convex corner
    • Abstract: The two-dimensional (2D) pseudo-steady isothermal flow, which is isentropic and irrotational, around a convex corner is studied. The self-similar solutions for the supersonic flow around the convex corner are constructed, where the properties of the centered simple wave are used for the 2D isentropic irrotational pseudo-steady Euler equations. The geometric procedures of the center simple waves are given. It is proven that the supersonic flow turns the convex corner by an incomplete centered expansion wave or an incomplete centered compression wave, depending on the conditions of the downstream state.

  • Bifurcations in penetrative Rayleigh-Bénard convection in a
           cylindrical container
    • Abstract: The bifurcations of penetrative Rayleigh-Bénard convection in cylindrical containers are studied by the linear stability analysis (LSA) combined with the direct numerical simulation (DNS) method. The working fluid is cold water near 4°C, where the Prandtl number Pr is 11.57, and the aspect ratio (radius/height) of the cylinder ranges from 0.66 to 2. It is found that the critical Rayleigh number increases with the increase in the density inversion parameter θm. The relationship between the normalized critical Rayleigh number (Rac(θm)/Rac(0)) and θm is formulated, which is in good agreement with the stability results within a large range of θm. The aspect ratio has a minor effect on Rac(θm)/Rac(0). The bifurcation processes based on the axisymmetric solutions are also investigated. The results show that the onset of axisymmetric convection occurs through a trans-critical bifurcation due to the top-bottom symmetry breaking of the present system. Moreover, two kinds of qualitatively different steady axisymmetric solutions are identified.

  • Study on the packed volume-to-void ratio of idealized human red blood
           cells using a finite-discrete element method
    • Abstract: Numerical simulations are performed to examine the packing behavior of human red blood cells (RBCs). A combined finite-discrete element method (FDEM) is utilized, in which the RBCs are modeled as no-friction and no-adhesion solid bodies. The volume-to-void ratio of a large number of randomly packed RBCs is clarified, and the effects of the RBC shape, the mesh size, the cell number, and the container size are investigated. The results show that the packed human RBCs with normal shape have a void ratio of 28.45%, which is slightly higher than that of the flat or thick cells used in this study. Such information is beneficial to the further understanding on the geometric features of human RBCs and the research on RBC simulations.

  • Targeted energy transfer of a parallel nonlinear energy sink
    • Abstract: A parallel nonlinear energy sink (NES) is proposed and analyzed. The parallel NES is composed of a vibro-impact (VI) NES and a cubic NES. The dynamical equation is given, and the essential analytical investigation is carried out to deal with the cubic nonlinearity and impact nonlinearity. Multiple time-scale expansion is introduced, and the zeroth order is derived to give a rough outline of the system. The underlying Hamilton dynamic equation is given, and then the optimal stiffness is expressed. The clearance is regarded as a critical factor for the VI. Based on the periodical impact treatment by analytical investigation, the relationships of the cubic stiffness, the clearance, and the zeroth-order attenuation amplitude of the linear primary oscillator (LPO) are obtained. A cubic NES under the optimal condition is compared with the parallel NES. Harmonic signals, harmonic signals with noises, and the excitation generated by a second-order filter are considered as the potential excitation forces on the system. The targeted energy transfer (TET) in the designed parallel NES is shown to be more efficient.

  • Nonlinear free vibration of piezoelectric cylindrical nanoshells
    • Abstract: The nonlinear vibration characteristics of the piezoelectric circular cylindrical nanoshells resting on a viscoelastic foundation are analyzed. The small scale effect and thermo-electro-mechanical loading are taken into account. Based on the nonlocal elasticity theory and Donnell’s nonlinear shell theory, the nonlinear governing equations and the corresponding boundary conditions are derived by employing Hamilton’s principle. Then, the Galerkin method is used to transform the governing equations into a set of ordinary differential equations, and subsequently, the multiple-scale method is used to obtain an approximate analytical solution. Finally, an extensive parametric study is conducted to examine the effects of the nonlocal parameter, the external electric potential, the temper-ature rise, and the Winkler-Pasternak foundation parameters on the nonlinear vibration characteristics of circular cylindrical piezoelectric nanoshells.

  • Rotating sandwich cylindrical shells with an FGM core and two FGPM layers:
           free vibration analysis
    • Abstract: The free vibration analysis of a rotating cylindrical shell with an analytical method is investigated. The shell is considered as a sandwich structure, where the middle layer is a functionally graded material (FGM) shell, and it is surrounded by two piezoelectric layers. Considering piezoelectric materials to be functionally graded (FG), the material properties vary along the thickness direction as one innovation of this study. Applying the first-order shear deformation theory (FSDT), the equations of motion of this electromechanical system are derived as the partial differential equations (PDEs) using Hamilton’s principle. Then, the Galerkin procedure is used to discretize the governing equations, and the present results are compared with the previously published results for both isotropic and FGM shells to verify the analytical method. Finally, the effects of FGM and functionally graded piezoelectric material (FGPM) properties as well as the thickness ratio and the axial and circumferential wave numbers on the natural frequencies are studied. Moreover, the Campbell diagram is plotted and discussed through the governing equations. The present results show that increasing the non-homogeneous index of the FGM decreases the natural frequencies on the contrary of the effect of non-homogeneous index of the FGPM.

  • Unsteady magnetohydrodynamic stagnation point flow—closed-form
           analytical solutions
    • Abstract: This paper investigates the unsteady stagnation point flow and heat transfer of magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) fluids over a moving permeable flat surface. The unsteady Navier-Stokes (NS) equations are transformed into a similarity nonlinear ordinary differential equation, and a closed form solution is obtained for the unsteadiness parameter of 2. The boundary layer energy equation is transformed into a similarity equation, and is solved for a constant wall temperature and a time-dependent uniform wall heat flux case. The solution domain, velocity, and temperature profiles are calculated for different combinations of parameters including the Prandtl number, mass transfer parameter, wall moving parameter, and magnetic parameter. Two solution branches are obtained for certain combinations of the controlling parameters, and a stability analysis demonstrates that the lower solution branch is not stable. The present solutions provide an exact solution to the entire unsteady MHD NS equations, which can be used for validating the numerical code of computational fluid dynamics.

  • Quasi-static and dynamical analyses of a thermoviscoelastic Timoshenko
           beam using the differential quadrature method
    • Abstract: The quasi-static and dynamic responses of a thermoviscoelastic Timoshenko beam subject to thermal loads are analyzed. First, based on the small geometric deformation assumption and Boltzmann constitutive relation, the governing equations for the beam are presented. Second, an extended differential quadrature method (DQM) in the spatial domain and a differential method in the temporal domain are combined to transform the integro-partial-differential governing equations into the ordinary differential equations. Third, the accuracy of the present discrete method is verified by elastic/viscoelastic examples, and the effects of thermal load parameters, material and geometrical parameters on the quasi-static and dynamic responses of the beam are discussed. Numerical results show that the thermal function parameter has a great effect on quasi-static and dynamic responses of the beam. Compared with the thermal relaxation time, the initial vibrational responses of the beam are more sensitive to the mechanical relaxation time of the thermoviscoelastic material.

  • Path integral solution of vibratory energy harvesting systems
    • Abstract: A transition Fokker-Planck-Kolmogorov (FPK) equation describes the procedure of the probability density evolution whereby the dynamic response and reliability evaluation of mechanical systems could be carried out. The transition FPK equation of vibratory energy harvesting systems is a four-dimensional nonlinear partial differential equation. Therefore, it is often very challenging to obtain an exact probability density. This paper aims to investigate the stochastic response of vibration energy harvesters (VEHs) under the Gaussian white noise excitation. The numerical path integration method is applied to different types of nonlinear VEHs. The probability density function (PDF) from the transition FPK equation of energy harvesting systems is calculated using the path integration method. The path integration process is introduced by using the Gauss-Legendre integration scheme, and the short-time transition PDF is formulated with the short-time Gaussian approximation. The stationary probability densities of the transition FPK equation for vibratory energy harvesters are determined. The procedure is applied to three different types of nonlinear VEHs under Gaussian white excitations. The approximately numerical outcomes are qualitatively and quantitatively supported by the Monte Carlo simulation (MCS).

  • Combined effects of axial load and temperature on finite deformation of
           incompressible thermo-hyperelastic cylinder
    • Abstract: A finite deformation problem is examined for a cylinder composed of a class of incompressible thermo-hyperelastic Mooney-Rivlin materials under an equal axial load at its two fixed ends and a temperature field at its lateral boundary. Firstly, a thermo-mechanical coupling term is taken into account in the strain energy density function, and a governing equation of the problem is obtained. Secondly, an implicit analytical solution is derived by using the incompressibility and the boundary conditions. Significantly, numerical examples show that the middle portion of the cylinder undergoes almost a uniform radial deformation. However, the deformation near the two ends varies remarkably along the axial direction for relatively large axial loads. In addition, the rising temperature can increase the deformation of structures, and its influence is linear approximately. Specially, in the case of tensile load, the jump increase of the axial deformation may occur.

  • Combined effects of topography and bottom friction on shoaling internal
           solitary waves in the South China Sea
    • Abstract: A numerical study to a generalized Korteweg-de Vries (KdV) equation is adopted to model the propagation and disintegration of large-amplitude internal solitary waves (ISWs) in the South China Sea (SCS). Based on theoretical analysis and in situ measurements, the drag coefficient of the Chezy friction is regarded as inversely proportional to the initial amplitude of an ISW, rather than a constant as assumed in the previous studies. Numerical simulations of ISWs propagating from a deep basin to a continental shelf are performed with the generalized KdV model. It is found that the depression waves are disintegrated into several solitons on the continental shelf due to the variable topography. It turns out that the amplitude of the leading ISW reaches a maximum at the shelf break, which is consistent with the field observation in the SCS. Moreover, a dimensionless parameter defining the relative importance of the variable topography and friction is presented.

  • Entropy generation analysis of natural convective radiative second grade
           nanofluid flow between parallel plates in a porous medium
    • Abstract: The present article explores the entropy generation of radiating viscoelastic second grade nanofluid in a porous channel confined between two parallel plates. The boundaries of the plates are maintained at distinct temperatures and concentrations while the fluid is being sucked and injected periodically through upper and lower plates. The buoyancy forces, thermophoresis and Brownian motion are also considered due to the temperature and concentration differences across the channel. The system of governing partial differential equations has been transferred into a system of ordinary differential equations (ODEs) by appropriate similarity relations, and a shooting method with the fourth-order Runge-Kutta scheme is used for the solutions. The results are analyzed in detail for dimensionless velocity components. The temperature, concentration distributions, the entropy generation number, and the Bejan number corresponding to various fluid and geometric parameters are shown graphically. The skin friction, heat and mass transfer rates are presented in the form of tables. It is noticed that the temperature profile of the fluid is enhanced with the Brownian motion, whereas the concentration profile of the fluid is decreased with the thermophoresis parameter, and the entropy and Bejan numbers exhibit the opposite trend for the suction and injection ratio.

  • Numerical study of the turbulent channel flow under space-dependent
           electromagnetic force control at different Reynolds numbers
    • Abstract: In this paper, the control of turbulent channel flow by space-dependent electromagnetic force and the mechanism of drag reduction are investigated with the direct numerical simulation (DNS) methods for different Reynolds numbers. A formulation is derived to express the relation between the drag and the Reynolds shear stress. With the application of optimal electromagnetic force, the in-depth relations among characteristic structures in the flow field, mean Reynolds shear stress, and the effect of drag reduction for different Reynolds numbers are discussed. The results indicate that the maximum drag reductions can be obtained with an optimal combination of parameters for each case of different Reynolds numbers. The regular quasi-streamwise vortex structures, which appear in the flow field, have the same period with that of the electromagnetic force. These structures suppress the random velocity fluctuations, which leads to the absolute value of mean Reynolds shear stress decreasing and the distribution of that moving away from the wall. Moreover, the wave number of optimal electromagnetic force increases, and the scale of the regular quasi-streamwise vortex structures decreases as the Reynolds number increases. Therefore, the rate of drag reduction decreases with the increase in the Reynolds number since the scale of the regular quasi-streamwise vortex structures decreases.

  • Melting heat transfer in Cu-water and Ag-water nanofluids flow with
           homogeneous-heterogeneous reactions
    • Abstract: This article addresses melting heat transfer in magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) nanofluid flows by a rotating disk. The analysis is performed in Cu-water and Ag-water nanofluids. Thermal radiation, viscous dissipation, and chemical reactions impacts are added in the nanofluid model. Appropriate transformations lead to the nondimensionalized boundary layer equations. Series solutions for the resulting equations are computed. The role of pertinent parameters on the velocity, temperature, and concentration is analyzed in the outputs. It is revealed that the larger melting parameter enhances the velocity profile while the temperature profile decreases. The surface drag force and heat transfer rate are computed under the influence of pertinent parameters. Furthermore, the homogeneous reaction parameter serves to decrease the surface concentration.

  • Deep postbuckling and nonlinear bending behaviors of nanobeams with
           nonlocal and strain gradient effects
    • Abstract: In this paper, multi-scale modeling for nanobeams with large deflection is conducted in the framework of the nonlocal strain gradient theory and the Euler-Bernoulli beam theory with exact bending curvature. The proposed size-dependent nonlinear beam model incorporates structure-foundation interaction along with two small scale param- eters which describe the stiffness-softening and stiffness-hardening size effects of nano- materials, respectively. By applying Hamilton’s principle, the motion equation and the associated boundary condition are derived. A two-step perturbation method is intro- duced to handle the deep postbuckling and nonlinear bending problems of nanobeams analytically. Afterwards, the influence of geometrical, material, and elastic foundation parameters on the nonlinear mechanical behaviors of nanobeams is discussed. Numerical results show that the stability and precision of the perturbation solutions can be guaran- teed, and the two types of size effects become increasingly important as the slenderness ratio increases. Moreover, the in-plane conditions and the high-order nonlinear terms appearing in the bending curvature expression play an important role in the nonlinear behaviors of nanobeams as the maximum deflection increases.
