Gradient Elasticity Modelling For The Analysis Of Fiber Composites With Fiber Resistant To Flexure
A model for the deformation of an elastic solid reinforced by embedded fibers is presented in which elastic resistance of the fibers to bending is incorporated. We developed the equilibrium equations and necessary boundary ...
Investigation of Latent Heat Thermal Energy Storage System for Air- Conditioning Applications
Around 40% of the total energy in USA is consumed by buildings, and about $370 billion US dollar is spent each year to supply this energy and thus reduction in energy consumption is extremely important. One of the most ...
A Finite Element Model To Predict The Effect Of Porosity On Elastic Modulus In Low Porosity Materials
The effect of porosity on elastic modulus in low porosity materials is investigated. First, several models used to predict the reduction in elastic modulus due to porosity are compared with a compilation of experimental ...
Modeling Of Magneto-Mechanical Response Of Magnetorhological Elastomers Having Different Arrangement Of Magnetic Particles
A model describing the magneto-mechanical properties of magnetorheological elastomers (MREs) under an external magnetic field and a mechanical shear deformation is presented. The main purpose of the present study is to ...
