    Abstract The dynamic properties of aluminium alloy foam were investigated by using split Hopkinson pressure bar (SHPB) with diameter of 40 mm. The aluminium alloy pressure bar and pulse shape technique were used to modify the traditional SHPB due to the low impedance of aluminium alloy foam. Wave dispersion correction on the aluminium alloy pressure bar was studied by Fourier series. And the finite element numerical simulation was also performed to demonstrate and validate the dispersion correction results by Fourier series method. The reflected and transmitted wave measured in SHPB experiments were corrected by the backward Fourier series expansion. The results… More >

    Abstract Sheet metal forming process like deep drawing subjected to large irreversible deformation. It leads to high strain localization zones and then internal or superficial micro defects. The deformation behavior and crack initiation in cylindrical deep drawing of aluminum alloy are simulated by the elasto-plastic finite element simulation. A1100-O and A2024-T4 sheet material are used in the simulation. Material properties based on the tensile and plane strain test is used in the simulation. Six cases are simulated in this study with different blank diameter. The simulated results are compared with the experimental results in terms of the crack location and critical… More >


    The Influence of Third Order Elastic Constants on Axisymmetric Wave Propagation Velocity in the Two-Layered Pre-Stressed Hollow Cylinder

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.32, No.1, pp. 29-60, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2012.032.029
    Abstract By the use of the Murnaghan potential the influence of third order elastic constants on axisymmetric longitudinal wave propagation velocity in a pre-stressed two-layered circular hollow cylinder is investigated. This investigation is carried out within the scope of the piecewise homogeneous body model by utilizing the first version of the small initial deformation theory of the Three-dimensional Linearized Theory of Elastic Waves in Initially Stressed Bodies. Numerical results are obtained and analyzed for the cases where the material of the outer hollow cylinder material is aluminum, but the material of the inner cylinder is steel (Case 1) and tungsten (Case… More >


    Development of a Morphing Skin Based on the Honeycomb Reinforced Elastomer

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.32, No.1, pp. 61-80, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2012.032.061
    Abstract The morphing skin has been a main obstacle in the real-world implementation of morphing aircrafts. This paper presents a morphing skin made of the elastomer reinforced by the honeycomb structure. A matrix made from elastomer provides possibilities to configure the morphing skin and the honeycomb structure with smaller in-plane modulus and larger out-of-plane modulus is thought to be suitable to reinforce the elastomer. The polyurethane elastomer is selected and synthesized by the casting method with the prepolymer approach, after which a tensile test is conducted to get its stress-strain relationship. To decrease the skin depth and diminish the local deformation… More >
