    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.10, No.1, pp. 1-40, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2009.010.001
    Abstract In this paper the boundary element method is employed to develop a displacement solution for the general transverse shear loading problem of composite beams of arbitrary constant cross section. The composite beam (thin or thick walled) consists of materials in contact, each of which can surround a finite number of inclusions. The materials have different elasticity and shear moduli and are firmly bonded together. The analysis of the beam is accomplished with respect to a coordinate system that has its origin at the centroid of the cross section, while its axes are not necessarily the principal bending ones. The transverse… More >


    Multiscale Nonlinear Constitutive Modeling of Carbon Nanostructures Based on Interatomic Potentials

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.10, No.1, pp. 41-64, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2009.010.041
    Abstract Continuum-based modeling of nanostructures is an efficient and suitable method to study the behavior of these structures when the deformation can be considered homogeneous. This paper is concerned about multiscale nonlinear tensorial constitutive modeling of carbon nanostructures based on the interatomic potentials. The proposed constitutive model is a tensorial equation relating the second Piola-Kirchhoff stress tensor to Green-Lagrange strain tensor. For carbon nanotubes, some modifications are made on the planar representative volume element (RVE) to account for the curved atomic structure resulting a non-planar RVE. Using the proposed constitutive model, the elastic behavior of the graphene sheet and carbon nanotube… More >


    Comparison of New Formulations for Martensite Start Temperature of Fe-Mn-Si Shape Memory Alloys Using Geneting Programming and Neural Networks

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.10, No.1, pp. 65-96, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2009.010.065
    Abstract This work proposed an alternative formulation for the prediction of martensite start temperature (Ms) of Fe-Mn-Si shape memory alloys (SMAs) depending on the various compositions and heat treatment techniques by using Neural Network (NN) and genetic programming (GP) soft computing techniques. The training and testing patterns of the proposed NN and GP formulations are based on well established experimental results from the literature. The NN and GP based formulation results are compared with experimental results and found to be quite reliable with a very high correlation (R2=0.955 for GEP and 0.999 for NN). More >


    A Fictitious Time Integration Method for Solving Delay Ordinary Differential Equations

    Chein-Shan Liu1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.10, No.1, pp. 97-116, 2009, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2009.010.097
    Abstract A new numerical method is proposed for solving the delay ordinary differential equations (DODEs) under multiple time-varying delays or state-dependent delays. The finite difference scheme is used to approximate the ODEs, which together with the initial conditions constitute a system of nonlinear algebraic equations (NAEs). Then, a Fictitious Time Integration Method (FTIM) is used to solve these NAEs. Numerical examples confirm that the present approach is highly accurate and efficient with a fast convergence. More >
