    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.28, No.2, pp. 97-120, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2012.028.097
    Abstract Manufacturing defects in the membrane of MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical-Systems) structures have a significant effect on the sensitivity and working range of the device. Thus, in optimizing the design of MEMS devices, it is essential that the effects of membrane defects (e.g., cracks) can be predicted in advance. Accordingly, this study proposes the detailed two-dimensional Infinite Element Method (IEM) formulation with Infinite Element (IE)-Finite Element (FE) coupling scheme for analyzing the out-of-plane vibration of isotropic MEMS membranes containing one or more tip cracks. In the proposed approach, a degenerative computation scheme is used to condense the multiple element layers of the IEM… More >

    A Robust Inverse Method Based on Least Square Support Vector Regression for Johnson-cook Material Parameters

    Hu Wang1, Weiyi Li1, Guangyao Li1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.28, No.2, pp. 121-146, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2012.028.121
    Abstract The purpose of this study is to propose a robust inverse method for estimating Johnson-Cook material parameters. The method is shown through illustrative examples for two different advanced high strength steel (AHSS) materials (DP980 and TRIP780) using set of data from impact experiments with different velocities. Compared with widely mixed numerical experimental methods, the suggested inverse method has the capability to guarantee the robustness of the obtained parameters by considering uncertainties. The inverse problem is converted into multi-objective optimization problems. Furthermore, in order to improve the performance in efficiency and accuracy, metamodeling techniques and global optimization method are integrated. The… More >

    3D Analysis of the Forced Vibration of a Prestressed Rectangular Composite Plate With Two Neighboring Cylindrical Cavities

    S.D. Akbarov1,2, N. Yahnioglu3, U. Babuscu Yesil3
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.28, No.2, pp. 147-164, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2012.028.147
    Abstract This paper presents an analysis of the forced vibration of an initially stressed rectangular composite plate containing two neighboring cylindrical cavities. The initial stresses are caused by stretching or compressing of the plate with uniformly distributed normal static forces acting on the two opposite end-planes which are parallel to the central axes of the aforementioned cylindrical cavities. The influence of the initial stresses on the stress concentration around the cavities caused by the additional uniformly distributed time harmonic forces acting on the upper face plane of the plate are given. The considered problem is formulated within the framework of the… More >

    Chemical Stresses Induced by Boundary Layer Diffusion in a Cylindrical Sandwich Composite

    Sun-Chien Ko1,2, Chen-Ti Hu1, Sanboh Lee1, Y.T. Chou3
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.28, No.2, pp. 165-180, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2012.028.165
    Abstract The chemical stresses developed in a cylindrical sandwich composite during radial boundary layer diffusion have been investigated. The system consists of a thin layer A of circular cross section sandwiched between two semi-infinite outer layers B, with the diffusivity of diffusant in A (DA) being much greater than that in B (DB). Two boundary conditions, the constant surface concentration and the instantaneous surface concentration, were considered. The concentration distributions were obtained by the Bessel-Laplace transform method. The stress functions were solved analytically based on the linear elasticity. Numerical computations were performed to illustrate the effects of the diffusivity ratio (DA/DB)… More >
