    Abstract Investigations of the microstructural evolution of Titanium (Ti) alloys during high temperature processes and heat treatment are attracting more attention due to wide variety of applications for such alloys. In most of these processes the Titanium alloys are subjected to fast heating or cooling rates. In this paper, Monte Carlo simulation is used to simulate the grain growth kinetics of Ti-6Al-4V alloy during fast heat treatment. Here, Monte Carlo simulation of grain growth is based on the Q-state Potts model. Our model is calibrated using the parabolic grain growth law, dn-d0n = kt, where the empirical constants are taken… More >


    Analysis of Hydrogen Permeation in Metals by Means of a New Anomalous Diffusion Model and Bayesian Inference

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.49-50, No.1, pp. 13-29, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2015.049.013
    Abstract This work is aimed at the direct and inverse analysis of hydrogen permeation in steels employing a novel anomalous diffusion model. For the inverse analysis, experimental data for hydrogen permeation in a 13% chromium martensitic stainless steel, available in the literature [Turnbull, Carroll and Ferriss (1989)], was employed within the Bayesian framework for inverse problems. The comparison between the predicted values and the available experimental data demonstrates the feasibility of the new model in adequately describing the physical phenomena occurring in this particular problem.

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.49-50, No.1, pp. 31-45, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2015.049.031
    Abstract The polyvinyl chloride PVC is a polymer material widely used for a large variety of applications. The present work focuses on the identification of the physical processes responsible for the mechanical properties of the PVC containing different crystallinities rate applied in large deformation and different strain rates. In order to understand the behavior of the PVC, a thermodynamic modeling is needed. Therefore, the contribution of this approach was demonstrated by experiment and numerical modeling. This comparative study demonstrates that the proposed model provides better agreement with experimental evidence. More >


    Fractional Order Derivative Model of Viscoelastic layer for Active Damping of Geometrically Nonlinear Vibrations of Smart Composite Plates

    Priyankar Datta1, Manas C. Ray1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.49-50, No.1, pp. 47-80, 2015, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2015.049.047
    Abstract This paper deals with the implementation of the one dimensional form of the fractional order derivative constitutive relation for three dimensional analysis of active constrained layer damping (ACLD) of geometrically nonlinear laminated composite plates. The constraining layer of the ACLD treatment is composed of the vertically/obliquely reinforced 1–3 piezoelectric composites (PZCs). The von Kármán type nonlinear strain displacement relations are used to account for the geometric nonlinearity of the plates. A nonlinear smart finite element model (FEM) has been developed. Thin laminated substrate composite plates with various boundary conditions and stacking sequences are analyzed to verify the effectiveness of the… More >
