According to this theory, the number of unknown’s parameters and governing equations are reduced and also the using of shear correction factor is not necessary because the transverse shear stresses are directly computed from the transverse shear forces by using equilibrium equations. The governing equations obtained using Hamilton’s principle is solved for a rectangular viscoelastic sandwich plate. The effects of the main parameters on the vibration characteristics of the viscoelastic sandwich plates are also elucidated. The results show that the frequency significantly decreases with using foundation and increasing the viscoelastic structural damping coefficient as well as the damping coefficient of materials and foundation.http://jsm.iau-arak.ac.ir/article_668608_b33f4af4905ff4be3afd5b0759e29604.pdfIslamic Azad University Arak BranchJournal of Solid Mechanics2008-350511420191201Dispersion of Torsional Surface Wave in a Pre-Stressed Heterogeneous Layer Sandwiched Between Anisotropic Porous Half-Spaces Under Gravity70772366860910.22034/jsm.2019.668609ENR.M PrasadDepartment of Mathematics , S.

Sinha College, Tekari, Magadh University, Bodh-Gaya, IndiaS KunduDepartment of Mathematics & Computing, Indian Institute of Technology (Indian School of Mines), Dhanbad, IndiaJournal Article20190703The study of surface waves in a layered media has their viable application in geophysical prospecting. This paper presents an analytical study on the dispersion of torsional surface wave in a pre-stressed heterogeneous layer sandwiched between a pre-stressed anisotropic porous semi-infinite medium and gravitating anisotropic porous half-space. The non-homogeneity within the intermediate layer and upper semi-infinite medium is assumed to rise up, because of quadratic variation and exponential variation in directional rigidity, pre-stress, and density respectively. The displacement dispersion equation for the torsional wave velocity has been expressed in the term of Whitaker function and their derivatives. Dispersion relation and the closed-form solutions have been obtained analytically for the displacement in the layer and the half-spaces. It is determined that the existing geometry allows torsional surface waves to propagate and the observe exhibits that the layer width, layer inhomogeneity, frequency of heterogeneity in the heterogeneous medium has a great impact on the propagation of the torsional surface wave. The influence of inhomogeneities on torsional wave velocity is also mentioned graphically by means plotting the dimensionless phase velocity against non-dimensional wave number for distinct values of inhomogeneity parameters.http://jsm.iau-arak.ac.ir/article_668609_bdc1c8831d08fd9bcae8e90abc19994e.pdfIslamic Azad University Arak BranchJournal of Solid Mechanics2008-350511420191230Analysis of Thermal-Bending Stresses in a Simply Supported Annular Sector Plate72473566861010.22034/jsm.2019.566121.1275ENT DhakateDepartment of Mathematics, Mahatma Gandhi Science College, Armori, Gadchiroli, IndiaV VargheseDepartment of Mathematics, Sushilabai Bharti Science College, Arni, Yavatmal, IndiaL KhalsaDepartment of Mathematics, Mahatma Gandhi Science College, Armori, Gadchiroli, IndiaJournal Article20190705The present article deals with the analysis of thermal-bending stresses in a heated thin annular sector plate with simply supported boundary condition under transient temperature distribution using Berger’s approximate methods.

In this research, replacing "time" by the "third dimension of place", the gas tungsten arc welding process was simulated by the finite element method in two dimensions and in a short time with acceptable accuracy in two steps (non-coupled thermal and mechanical analysis). A new method was proposed for applying initial conditions using temperature values calculated in the preceding step of the solution; this trick reduces nonlinear effects of birth of elements and considerably reduces analysis time. A new parameter was defined for determining thermal boundary conditions to determine the contribution of the imposed surface and volumetric thermal loads. The effect of weld joint geometry on residual stresses and distortion was studied based on a validated simulation program. Results suggest that changing the joint geometry from <em>V</em>-into <em>X</em>-groove, the maximum values of residual stress and distortion are reduced by 20% and 15%, respectively.http://jsm.iau-arak.ac.ir/article_668764_9ab74821b88913b383ef1963a58a9e9e.pdfIslamic Azad University Arak BranchJournal of Solid Mechanics2008-350511420191230Semi-Active Pulse-Switching SSDC Vibration Suppression using Magnetostrictive Materials74775866882910.22034/jsm.2019.668829ENS MohammadiMechanical Engineering Department, Razi University, Kermanshah, IranS HatamMechanical Engineering Department, Razi University, Kermanshah, IranA KhodayariMechanical Engineering Department, Razi University, Kermanshah, IranJournal Article20190711One of the best vibration control methods using smart actuators are semi-active approaches which are as strong as active methods and need no external energy supply such as passive ones. Compared with piezoelectric-based, magnetostrictive-based control methods have higher coupling efficiency, higher Curie temperature, higher flexibility to be integrated with curved structures and no depolarization problems. Semi-active methods are well-developed for piezoelectrics but magnetostrictive-based approaches are not as efficient, powerful and well-known as piezoelectric-based methods. The aim of this work is to propose a powerful semi-active control method using magnetostrictive actuators. In this paper a new type of semi-active suppression methods using magnetostrictive materials is introduced which contains an equipped vibrating structure with magnetostrictive patches wound by a pick-up coil connected to an electronic switch and a capacitor. The novelty of the proposed damping method is switching on the coil current signal using mentioned switch and capacitor which is briefly named SSDC (synchronized switch damping on capacitor). In this paper the characteristics of the semi-active pulse-switching damping technique with magnetostrictive materials are studied and numerical results show significant damping for almost all types of excitations. http://jsm.iau-arak.ac.ir/article_668829_5edce31feee4db4de87d7197c74f2391.pdfIslamic Azad University Arak BranchJournal of Solid Mechanics2008-350511420191230Pull-In Instability of MSGT Piezoelectric Polymeric FG-SWCNTs Reinforced Nanocomposite Considering Surface Stress Effect75977766861110.22034/jsm.2019.668611ENA Ghorbanpour AraniDepartment of Solid Mechanics, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, University of Kashan, Kashan, Iran----Institute of Nanoscience & Nanotechnology, University of Kashan, Kashan, IranB Rousta NaviDepartment of Solid Mechanics, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, University of Kashan, Kashan, IranM MohammadimehrDepartment of Solid Mechanics, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, University of Kashan, Kashan, IranS NiknejadDepartment of Solid Mechanics, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, University of Kashan, Kashan, IranA.A Ghorbanpour AraniSchool of Mechnical Engineering, College of Engineering, University of Tehran, Tehran, IranA HosseinpourDepartment of Mechanical Engineering and Engineering Science,University of North Carolina at Charlotte, USAJournal Article20190715In this paper, the pull-in instability of piezoelectric polymeric nanocomposite plates reinforced by functionally graded single-walled carbon nanotubes (FG-SWCNTs) based on modified strain gradient theory (MSGT) is investigated. Various types of SWCNTs are distributed in piezoelectric polymeric plate and also surface stress effect is considered in this research. The piezoelectric polymeric nanocomposite plate is subjected to electro-magneto-mechanical loadings. The nonlinear governing equations are derived from Hamilton's principle. Then, pull-in voltage and natural frequency of the piezoelectric polymeric nanocomposite plates are calculated by Newton-Raphson method. There is a good agreement between the obtained and other researcher results. The results show that the pull-in voltage and natural frequency increase with increasing of applied voltage, magnetic field, FG-SWCNTs orientation angle and small scale parameters and decrease with increasing of van der Waals and Casimir forces, residual surface stress constant. Furthermore, highest and lowest pull-in voltages are belonging to FG-X and FG-O distribution types of SWCNTs.http://jsm.iau-arak.ac.ir/article_668611_af358a8d9cd3410dce9a6885892b6386.pdfIslamic Azad University Arak BranchJournal of Solid Mechanics2008-350511420191230Impact of Initial Stress on Reflection and Transmission of SV-Wave between Two Orthotropic Thermoelastic Half-Spaces77878966861310.22034/jsm.2019.572416.1307ENB PrasadDepartment of Applied Mathematics, Indian Institute of Technology (Indian School of Mines), Dhanbad, India0000-0002-5524-1755S KunduDepartment of Applied Mathematics, Indian Institute of Technology (Indian School of Mines), Dhanbad, IndiaP Chandra PalDepartment of Applied Mathematics, Indian Institute of Technology (Indian School of Mines), Dhanbad, IndiaJournal Article20190718Reflection and transmission of plane waves between two initially stressed thermoelastic half-spaces with orthotropic type of anisotropy is studied. Incidence of a SV-type wave from the lower half-space is considered and the amplitude ratios of the reflected and transmitted SV-wave, P-wave and thermal wave are obtained by using appropriate boundary conditions. Numerical computation for a particular model is performed and graphs are plotted to study the effect of angle of incidence of the wave and the initial stress parameters of the half-spaces. From the graphical results, it is found that the modulus of reflection and transmission coefficients of the thermal wave is very less in comparison to reflection and transmission coefficients of P- and SV-waves. It is also observed that for vertical incidence of SV-wave we have only reflected and refracted SV-waves and there is no reflected or refracted P and thermal waves, whereas for horizontal incidence of SV-wave there exists only reflected SV-wave and no other reflected or transmitted wave exists. Moreover, it is found that all the reflection and transmission coefficients are strongly affected by the initial stress parameters of the both half-spaces.http://jsm.iau-arak.ac.ir/article_668613_71f8acfc0c2864e7530543bf5445697e.pdfIslamic Azad University Arak BranchJournal of Solid Mechanics2008-350511420191230Efficient Higher-Order Shear Deformation Theories for Instability Analysis of Plates Carrying a Mass Moving on an Elliptical Path79080866876310.22034/jsm.2019.668763ENE TorkanYoung Researchers and Elite Club, Khomeinishahr Branch, Islamic Azad University, Khomeinishahr, Isfahan,IranM PirmoradianDepartment of Mechanical Engineering, Khomeinishahr Branch, Islamic Azad University, Khomeinishahr, Isfahan, IranJournal Article20190721The dynamic performance of structures under traveling loads should be exactly analyzed to have a safe and reasonable structural design. Different higher-order shear deformation theories are proposed in this paper to analyze the dynamic stability of thick elastic plates carrying a moving mass. The displacement fields of different theories are chosen based upon variations along the thickness as cubic, sinusoidal, hyperbolic and exponential. The well-known Hamilton’s principle is utilized to derive equations of motion and then they are solved using the Galerkin method. The energy-rate method is used as a numerical method to calculate the boundary curves separating the stable and unstable regions in the moving mass parameters plane. Effects of the relative plate thickness, trajectories radii and the Winkler foundation stiffness on the system stability are examined.

The correct selection of the SPIF parameters influences the formability and quality of the product. In the present study, the Gurson-Tvergaard Needleman (GTN) damage model was used for the fracture prediction in the numerical simulation of the SPIF process of aluminum alloy 1050. The GTN parameters of AA 1050 sheet were firstly identified by the numerical simulation of tensile test and comparison of the experimental and numerical stress-strain curves. The identified parameters of the GTN damage model were used for fracture prediction in the SPIF process. The numerical results of the fracture position, thickness variation across the sample and forming height were compared with the experimental results. The numerical results had good agreement with the experimental ones. The effect of SPIF main parameters was investigated on the formability of samples by the verified numerical model. These parameters were tool rotation speed, tool feed rate, tool diameter, wall angle of the sample, vertical pitch, and friction between the tool and the blank.http://jsm.iau-arak.ac.ir/article_668616_4d0c5fab9eee5c6999038ae1c88faeb2.pdfIslamic Azad University Arak BranchJournal of Solid Mechanics2008-350511420191230FEM Implementation of the Coupled Elastoplastic/Damage Model: Failure Prediction of Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRPs) Composites84285366861710.22034/jsm.2019.668617ENI UD DINLaboratoire des Technologies Innovantes, LTI-EA 3899, Université de Picardie Jules Verne, Amiens, FranceP HaoLaboratoire des Technologies Innovantes, LTI-EA 3899, Université de Picardie Jules Verne, Amiens, FranceM AamirSchool of Engineering, Edith Cowan University, Joondalup, Perth, AustraliaG FranzLaboratoire des Technologies Innovantes, LTI-EA 3899, Université de Picardie Jules Verne, Amiens, FranceS PanierLaboratoire des Technologies Innovantes, LTI-EA 3899, Université de Picardie Jules Verne, Amiens, FranceJournal Article20190728The coupled damage/plasticity model for meso-level which is ply-level in case of Uni-Directional (UD) Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRPs) is implemented. The mathematical formulations, particularly the plasticity part, are discussed in a comprehensive manner. The plastic potential is defined in effective stress space and the damage evolution is based on the theory of irreversible thermodynamics. The model which is illustrated here has been implemented by different authors previously but, the complete pre-requisite algorithm ingredients used in the implicit scheme implementation are not available in the literature. This leads to the complexity in its implementation. Furthermore, this model is not available as a built-in material constitutive law in the commercial Finite Element Method (FEM) softwares. To facilitate the implementation and understanding, all the mathematical formulations are presented in great detail. In addition, the elastoplastic consistent operator needed for implementation in the implicit solution scheme is also derived. The model is formularized in incremental form to be used in the Return Mapping Algorithm (RMA). The quasi-static load carrying capability and non-linearity caused by the collaborative effect of damage and plasticity is predicted with User MATerial (UMAT) subroutine which solves the FEM problem with implicit techniques in ABAQUS.http://jsm.iau-arak.ac.ir/article_668617_9b3b2f609edd23958b5d534f81cf4917.pdfIslamic Azad University Arak BranchJournal of Solid Mechanics2008-350511420191230Chip Formation Process using Finite Element Simulation “Influence of Cutting Speed Variation”85486166861810.22034/jsm.2019.668618ENA KherrafMechanical Engineering Department, Faculty of Technology, University of Batna2

We have explored different constitutive models describing the tool-workpiece interaction. The Johnson-Cook constitutive model with damage initiation and damage evolution has been used to simulate chip formation. Chip morphology, Stress and equivalent plastic deformation has been presented in this paper as results of chip formation process simulation using Abaqus explicit Software. According to simulation results, the variation of cutting speeds is an influential factor in chip formation, therefore with the increasing of cutting speed the chip type tends to become more segmented. Additionally to the chip formation and morphology obtained from the finite element simulation results, some other mechanical parameters; which are very difficult to measure on the experimental test, can be obtained through finite element modeling of chip formation process.http://jsm.iau-arak.ac.ir/article_668618_b58d3a40ec359459cdedc39f07d386db.pdfIslamic Azad University Arak BranchJournal of Solid Mechanics2008-350511420191230An Axisymmetric Contact Problem of a Thermoelastic Layer on a Rigid Circular Base86288566861910.22034/jsm.2019.668619ENF GuerracheDepartment of Mechanical Engineering, Ecole Nationale Polytechnique, Algiers, AlgeriaB KebliDepartment of Mechanical Engineering, Ecole Nationale Polytechnique, Algiers, AlgeriaJournal Article20190801We study the thermoelastic deformation of an elastic layer.

The rectangular irregularity has been taken in the half-space. The dispersion equation for Love waves is derived by simple mathematical techniques followed by Fourier transformations. It can be seen that the phase velocity is strongly influenced by the wave number, the depth of the irregularity, homogeneity parameter and the rigid boundary. The dimensionless phase velocity is plotted against dimensionless wave number graphically for different size of rectangular irregularities and homogeneity parameter with the help of MATLAB graphical routines for both free and rigid boundaries for several cases. The numerical analysis of dispersion equation indicates that the phase velocity of surface waves decreases with the increase in dimensionless wave number. The obtained results can be useful to the study of geophysical prospecting and understanding the cause and estimating of damage due to earthquakes.http://jsm.iau-arak.ac.ir/article_668621_f6a76d7f1a65a79ce433602319f106f9.pdfIslamic Azad University Arak BranchJournal of Solid Mechanics2008-350511420191230Temperature Effect on Mechanical Properties of Top Neck Mollusk Shells Nano-Composite by Molecular Dynamics Simulations and Nano-Indentation Experiments90291766866210.22034/jsm.2019.668662ENA Nouroozi MasirDepartment of Mechanical Engineering, University of Guilan, Rasht, IranA DarvizehDepartment of Mechanical Engineering, University of Guilan, Rasht, IranA ZajkaniDepartment of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Imam Khomeini International University, Qazvin, IranJournal Article20190806Discovering the mechanical properties of biological composite structures at the Nano-scale is much interesting today. Top Neck mollusk shells are amongst biomaterials Nano-Composite that their layered structures are composed of organic and inorganic materials. Since the Nano indentation process is known as an efficient method to determine mechanical properties like elastic modulus and hardness in small-scale, so, due to some limitation of considering all peripheral parameters; particular simulations of temperature effect on the atomic scale are considerable. The present paper provides a molecular dynamics approach for modeling the Nano-Indentation mechanism with three types of pyramids, cubic and spherical indenters at different temperatures of 173, 273, 300 and 373<em>K</em>. Based on load-indentation depth diagrams and Oliver-Far equations, the findings of the study indicate that results in the weakening bond among the bilateral atoms lead to reduced corresponding harnesses. Whenever, the temperature increases the elastic modulus decrease as well as the related hardness. Moreover, within determining the elastic modulus and hardness, the results obtained from the spherical indenter will have the better consistency with experimental data. This study can be regarded as a novel benchmark study for further researches which tend to consider structural responses of the various Bio-inspired Nano-Composites.http://jsm.iau-arak.ac.ir/article_668662_c765edd8d95c3aeed6065abb6bfaebc3.pdfIslamic Azad University Arak BranchJournal of Solid Mechanics2008-350511420191230Wave Reflection and Refraction at the Interface of Triclinic and Liquid Medium91893166891410.22034/jsm.2019.1865281.1413ENS.A SahuDepartment of Applied Mathematics, Indian Institute of Technology (Indian School of Mines), Dhanbad-826004, Jharkhand, IndiaS KarmakarDepartment of Applied Mathematics, Indian Institute of Technology (Indian School of Mines), Dhanbad-826004, Jharkhand, IndiaJournal Article20190810A Mathematical model has been considered to study the reflection and refraction phenomenon of plane wave at the interface of an isotropic liquid medium and a triclinic (anisotropic) half-space.
