    Abstract Metamaterials offer new propagation modes for electromagnetic signals which have been explored as media for data exchange. They also offer a good prospect for efficient power transfer. This paper considers the limits on transferable power and their consequences in relation to magneto inductive waves in 1 and 2 dimensional magnetic metamaterial structures. The upper limit is found to be directly related to the voltage tolerance of capacitances used in the meta-material’s construction. Higher resonant frequencies offer better efficiency and higher maximum powers. For a proposed device operating in the Qi band (100-200k Hz) power transfer limits of 140 W are… More >


    2D and 3D Multiphysics Voronoi Cells, Based on Radial Basis Functions, for Direct Mesoscale Numerical Simulation (DMNS) of the Switching Phenomena in Ferroelectric Polycrystalline Materials

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.33, No.1, pp. 19-62, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2013.033.019
    Abstract In this paper, 2D and 3D Multiphysics Voronoi Cells (MVCs) are developed, for the Direct Mesoscale Numerical Simulation (DMNS) of the switching phenomena in ferroelectric polycrystalline materials. These arbitrarily shaped MVCs (arbitrary polygons in 2D, and arbitrary polyhedrons in 3D with each face being an arbitrary polygon) are developed, based on assuming radial basis functions to represent the internal primal variables (mechanical displacements and electric potential), and assuming linear functions to represent the primal variables on the element boundaries. For the 3D case, the linear functions used to represent the primal variables on each of the polygonal surfaces of the… More >


    On Axisymmetric Longitudinal Wave Propagation in Double-Walled Carbon Nanotubes

    S.D. Akbarov1,2
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.33, No.1, pp. 63-85, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2013.033.063
    Abstract An attempt is made into the investigation of longitudinal axisymmetric wave propagation in the DWCNT with the use of the exact equations of motion of the linear theory of elastodynamics. The DWCNT is modeled as concentricallynested two circular hollow cylinders between which there is free space. The difference in the radial displacements of these cylinders is coupled with the van der Waals forces and it is assumed that full slipping conditions occur on the inner surface of the outer tube and on the outer surface of the inner tube. Numerical results on the influence of the problem parameters such as… More >

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.33, No.1, pp. 87-110, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2013.033.087
    Abstract An integrated model is proposed to describe tension stiffening in reinforced concrete (RC) flexural members that are undergoing uniform corrosion of reinforcement. The tension stiffening model is taken as base to incorporate the effects of reinforcement corrosion. The model is developed in two steps. In the first step, tension stiffening of concrete is modelled using an exponential stress-strain curve defined as function of a decay parameter. Modular ratio and reinforcement ratio are considered in the definition of the decay parameter. In the second step, the effects of uniform corrosion of reinforcement are integrated with the tension stiffening model. For this,… More >
