Meso-Scale Computational Modeling Of Hypervelocity Impact Damage In Advanced Materials
Modeling of hypervelocity impact (HVI) on materials and structures is often associated with high computational expenses, especially when inhomogeneous materials are involved. To reduce computational cost, complex materials ...
Buckling And Post Buckling Behavior For Unsymmetrical Laminates Part I: Curing Cycle
This is the first of two companion papers that examine the elastic buckling and post-buckling behavior of thin unsymmetric cross-ply laminates. When cured in a flat mold these panels possess two cylindrical equilibrium ...
Thermal Conductivity Of Advanced Architected Cellular Materials
On The Validity Extent Of Linear Viscoelastic Models Of Human Brain
Characterization of human brain material properties in the form of computationally feasible mathematical models is a complex problem; especially when the models are used in complicated Finite Element simulations. Various ...
Development And Validation Of A Numerical Model For Vibration Of Power Lines
Modal testing is being investigated as a means of non-destructive evaluation of wooden utility pole strength. In order to understand the effects of conductors on the dynamics of the poles, a numerically efficient model ...
Effects Of A Channel Inclination On Displacements Of Viscoplastic Fluids
The miscible displacement flow of a viscoplastic fluid by a Newtonian fluid is studied numerically and analytically in a near-horizontal 2D channel. We focus on a density-unstable flow configuration where the displacing ...
Scaling And Machine Learning Analysis Of Turbulent Fluxes Of Momentum And Heat In The Microclimate Of An Urban Canyon
Turbulent flow inside the urban roughness sublayer, despite its complexities, plays a crucial role in the microclimate of the built environment. The parameterization of flow in the urban roughness sublayer provides a better ...
Energy Transfer Mechanisms In The Ranque-Hilsch Vortex Tube
The Ranque-Hilsch Vortex Tube (RHVT) is a small tube without any moving parts receiving compressed air from a tangential inlet and exhausting cold air from a small hole at one end of the tube while exhausting hot air from ...
3D Numerical Study Of Hill Mounted VAWT
The ground topography effect on the wind flow is significant. The knowledge of the flow behavior near ground is crucial in the development of wind power, especially in the choice of suitable sites and for estimation of ...
Mechanical Analysis Of Multi-Directional Functionally Graded Cellular Plates
In this study, the concept of multi-directional functionally graded cellular material (FGCM) is introduced. FGCMs consist of two spatially-varying engineered phases: solid and void. Different parameters, such as relative ...
