    Abstract The two coupled governing differential equations for the out-of-plane vibrations of non-uniform beams with variable curvature are derived via the Hamilton's principle. These equations are expressed in terms of flexural and torsional displacements simultaneously. In this study, the analytical method is proposed. Firstly, two physical parameters are introduced to simplify the analysis. One derives the explicit relations between the flexural and the torsional displacements which can also be used to reduce the difficulty in experimental measurements. Based on the relation, the two governing characteristic differential equations with variable coefficients can be uncoupled into a sixth-order ordinary differential equation in terms… More >

    Abstract A perforating hole is a channel through which the oil and gas in a reservoir pass into the production well bore. During the process of perforating due to explosion, the surrounding sandstone will be damaged to a certain extent, which will increase the well bore skin and lead to the decrease of production consequently. In this work a mechanical model of perforating damage is developed to describe the influences of perforating due to explosion on the porosity and permeability of the surrounding sandstone near the compaction zone. Based on this developed model, the important data related to the damage of… More >

    Molecule Dynamics Study on Heat Transfer at Gas-Nanoparticle Interface

    ZichunYang1, Gaohui Su1,2, Bin Chen1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.51, No.1, pp. 43-62, 2016, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2016.051.043
    Abstract The molecular dynamics (MD) simulations were used to understand the heat transfer process between the gas phase and the solid skeleton in the nanoporous silica aerogels. The amorphous silica nanoparticles were generated by the MD simulations and the energy accommodation coefficient (EAC) between the gases and the nanoparticles was calculated based on the results of the nonequilibrium molecular dynamics (NEMD) simulations. The apparent thermal conductivity (ATC) of the gases between the heat source and heat sink was also obtained. The effects of the temperature, the particle diameter and the molecule type on the EAC and the ATC were investigated. The… More >
