    Abstract In this investigation, a new model was developed to predict the wear rate of Al2O3 particle-reinforced aluminum alloy composites by Genetic Expression Programming (GEP). The training and testing data sets were obtained from the well established abrasive wear test results. The volume fraction of particle, particle size of reinforcement, abrasive grain size and sliding distance were used as independent input variables, while wear rate (WR) as dependent output variable. Different models for wear rate were predicted on the basis of training data set using genetic programming and accuracy of the best model was proved with testing data set. The two-body… More >

    Efficiency of Power Dissipation and Instability Criterion for Processing Maps in Hot Forming

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.18, No.3, pp. 271-300, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2010.018.271
    Abstract The processing maps are a superimposition of iso-efficiency contour map and flow instability map, which are used to design hot working processing conditions in a wide variety of materials. In order to construct the processing maps, the efficiency of power dissipation and an instability criterion taking into account the contribution of strain and microstructure evolution are proposed based on a set of microstructure-based viscoplastic constitutive equations. In viscoplastic constitutive equations, the grain size of matrix phase and the dislocation density are taken as internal state variables. And, the material constants in present equations can be identified by a genetic algorithm… More >


    Stress Field Effects on Phonon Properties in Spatially Confined Semiconductor Nanostructures

    L.L. Zhu1,2,3, X.J. Zheng1,2
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.18, No.3, pp. 301-320, 2010, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2010.018.301
    Abstract The phonon properties of spatially confined nanofilms under the preexisting stress fields are investigated theoretically by accounting for the confinement effects and acoustoelastic effects. Due to the spatial confinement in low-dimensional structures, the phonon dispersion relations, phonon group velocities as well as the phonon density of states are of significant difference with the ones in bulk structures. Here, the continuum elasticity theory is made use of to determine the phonon dispersion relations of shear modes (SH), dilatational modes (SA) and the flexural modes (AS), thus to analyze the contribution of stress fields on the phonon performance of confined nanofilms.
