    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.48, No.2, pp. 77-90, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2015.048.077
    Abstract Reasonable width design of narrow coal pillar is the key for ensuring stability of surrounding rock in the roadway driving along next goaf. Based on movement characteristics of overlying strata in gob-side entry, the paper establishes the mechanical model of surrounding rock structure for roadway driving along next goaf, and analyzes the interaction mechanism between key blocks and coal pillar. Besides, in allusion to the mechanical equilibrium of key block B in basic roof, the stability coefficients K1 and K2 of key block B and sensitive coefficient of influencing factor are introduced. When the stability coefficient K1 is larger than… More >

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.48, No.2, pp. 91-102, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2015.048.091
    Abstract Ferromagnetic shape memory alloy particulate composites, which combine the advantages of large magnetic field induced deformation in ferromagnetic shape memory alloys (FSMAs) with high ductility in matrix, can be used for sensor and actuator applications. In this paper, a new constitutive model was proposed to predict the magneto-mechanical behaviors of FSMA particulate composites based on the description for FSMAs, incorporating Eshelby’s equivalent inclusion theory. The influencing factors, such as volume fraction of particles and elastic modulus, were analyzed. The magnetic field induced strain and other mechanical properties under different magnetic field intensity were also investigated. More >

    Small-Scale Effect on the Static Deflection of a Clamped Graphene Sheet

    G. Q. Xie1, J. P. Wang2, Q. L. Zhang1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.48, No.2, pp. 103-117, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2015.048.103
    Abstract Small-scale effect on the static deflection of a clamped graphene sheet and influence of the helical angle of the clamped graphene sheet on its static deflection are investigated. Static equilibrium equations of the graphene sheet are formulated based on the concept of nonlocal elastic theory. Galerkin method is used to obtain the classical and the nonlocal static deflection from Static equilibrium equations , respectively. The numerical results show that the static deflection and small-scale effect of a clamped graphene sheet is affected by its small size and helical angle. Small-scale effect will decrease with increase of the length and width… More >

    Experimental and Numerical Investigations on Multicellular GFRP Bridge Deck Panels

    M. P. Muthuraj1,2, K. Nithyapriya1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.48, No.2, pp. 119-132, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2015.048.119
    Abstract The maintenance, upgrading and replacement of existing bridges have become urgent requirement and a challenging task for the construction sector. Bridge decks made of fibre reinforced polymers (FRP), have been widely adopted both in new construction and replacement of existing bridge decks. This paper reports the studies carried out hand lay-up multicellular glass fibre reinforced polymer. Multicellular bridge deck panels with various cross sectional profiles have been analysed using a general purpose finite element software ANSYS. A cross sectional profile that satisfied the deflection criteria with minimum weight was selected for analysis and fabrication. Six multicellular GFRP composite bridge deck… More >
