    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.53, No.3, pp. 175-186, 2017, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2017.053.187
    Abstract The backfilling mining technology is a type of high-efficiency coal mining technology that is used to address the environmental issues caused by the caving mining technology. In this paper, the mechanical model of symmetrical laminated plate representing the overburden movement caused by the backfilling mining technology is established, and the governing differential equation of the motion of the overburden is derived. The boundary conditions of the mechanical model are put forward, and the analytical solution of the overburden movement and surface subsidence is obtained. The numerical model of the overburden movement and surface subsidence, under mining with backfilling, is established… More >

    The Stable Explicit Time Stepping Analysis with a New Enrichment Scheme by XFEM

    Xue-cong Liu1, Qing Zhang1,*, Xiao-zhou Xia1
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.53, No.3, pp. 187-206, 2017, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2017.053.203
    Abstract This paper focuses on the study of the stability of explicit time integration algorithm for dynamic problem by the Extended Finite Element Method (XFEM). A new enrichment scheme of crack tip is proposed within the framework of XFEM. Then the governing equations are derived and evolved into the discretized form. For dynamic problem, the lumped mass and the explicit time algorithm are applied. With different grid densities and different forms of Newmark scheme, the Dynamic Stress Intensity Factor (DSIF) is computed by using interaction integral approach to reflect the dynamic response. The effectiveness of the proposed scheme is demonstrated through… More >

    Cycle Time Reduction in Injection Molding by Using Milled Groove Conformal Cooling

    Mahesh S. Shinde1,*, Kishor M. Ashtankar2
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.53, No.3, pp. 207-217, 2017, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2017.053.223
    Abstract This paper presents simulation study on Milled Grooved conformal cooling channels (MGCCC) in injection molding. MGCCC has a more effective cooling surface area which helps to provide efficient cooling as compared to conventional cooling. A case study of Encloser part is investigated for cycle time reduction and quality improvement. The performance designs of straight drilled are compared with MGCCC by using Autodesk Moldflow Insight (AMI) 2016. The results show total 32.1% reduction of cooling time and 9.86% reduction of warpage in case of MGCCC as compared to conventional cooling. More >

    Multiscale Nonlinear Thermo-Mechanical Coupling Analysis of Composite Structures with Quasi-Periodic Properties

    Zihao Yang1, Liang Ma2, Qiang Ma3, Junzhi Cui1,4, Yufeng Nie1, Hao Dong1, Xiaohong An5
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.53, No.3, pp. 219-248, 2017, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2017.053.235
    Abstract This paper reports a multiscale analysis method to predict the thermo-mechanical coupling performance of composite structures with quasi-periodic properties. In these material structures, the configurations are periodic and the material coefficients are quasi-periodic, i.e., they depend not only on the microscale information but also on the macro location. Also, a mutual interaction between displacement and temperature fields is considered in the problem, which is our particular interest in this study. The multiscale asymptotic expansions of the temperature and displacement fields are constructed and associated error estimation in nearly pointwise sense is presented. Then, a finite element-difference algorithm based on the… More >

    Mathematical Modelling and 3D FEM Analysis of the Influence of Initial Stresses on the ERR in a Band Crack’s Front in the Rectangular Orthotropic Thick Plate

    Arzu Turan Dincel1, Surkay D. Akbarov2,3
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.53, No.3, pp. 249-270, 2017, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2017.053.265
    Abstract This paper deals with the mathematical modelling and 3D FEM study of the energy release rate (ERR) in the band crack’s front contained in the orthotropic thick rectangular plate which is stretched or compressed initially before the loading of the crack's edge planes. The initial stretching or compressing of the plate causes uniformly distributed normal stress to appear acting in the direction which is parallel to the plane on which the band crack is located. After the appearance of the initial stress in the plate it is assumed that the crack's edge planes are loaded with additional uniformly distributed normal… More >
