    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.52, No.2, pp. 73-103, 2016, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2016.052.073
    Abstract A three-dimensional (3D) asymptotic theory is reformulated for the static analysis of simply-supported, isotropic and orthotropic single-layered nanoplates and graphene sheets (GSs), in which Eringen's nonlocal elasticity theory is used to capture the small length scale effect on the static behaviors of these. The perturbation method is used to expand the 3D nonlocal elasticity problems as a series of two-dimensional (2D) nonlocal plate problems, the governing equations of which for various order problems retain the same differential operators as those of the nonlocal classical plate theory (CST), although with different nonhomogeneous terms. Expanding the primary field variables of each order… More >

    Abstract The methods of numerical simulation and test are combined to analyze the impact behavior of glass fiber reinforced aluminum alloy laminate (GLARE). A new failure criteria is proposed to obtain the impact failure of GLARE, and combined with material progressive damage method by writing code of LS-DYNA. Low velocity impact test of GLARE is employed to validate the feasibility of the finite element model established. The simulation results have been shown that progressive damage finite element model established is reliable. Through the application of the finite element model established, the delamination of GLARE evolution progress is simulated, various failure modes… More >

    Gyro-Chirality Effect of Bianisotropic Substrate on the Resonant Frequency and Half-power Bandwidth of Rectangular Microstrip Patch Antenna


    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.52, No.2, pp. 123-131, 2016, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2016.052.123
    Abstract In this paper, the gyrotropic bi-anisotropy of the chiral medium in substrate constitutive parameters (xc and hc) of a rectangular microstrip patch antenna is introduced in order to observe its effects on the complex resonant frequency and half-power bandwidth. The analysis is based on the full-wave spectral domain approach using the Moment Method, with sinusoidal type basis functions. The numerical calculations related to the dominant mode have been carried out, and it has been observed that the resonant frequency and the bandwidth are directly linked to the medium chirality. The new results can be considered as a generalisation form of… More >
