http://jsm.iau-arak.ac.ir/article_542571_115452.html
In this research, wave propagation analysis in polymeric smart nanocomposite micro-tubes reinforced by single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) conveying fluid is studied. The surrounded elastic medium is simulated by visco-Pasternak model while the composite micro-tube undergoes electro-magneto-mechanical fields. By means of micromechanics method, the constitutive structural coefficients of nanocomposite are obtained. The fluid flow is assumed to be incompressible, viscous and irrotational and the dynamic modelling of fluid flow and fluid viscosity are calculated using Navier-Stokes equation. Micro-tube is simulated by Euler-Bernoulli and Timoshenko beam models. Based on energy method and the Hamilton’s principle, the equation of motion are derived and modified couple stress theory is utilized to consider the small scale effect. Results indicate the influences of various parameters such as the small scale, elastic medium, 2D magnetic field, velocity and viscosity of fluid and volume fraction of carbon nanotube (CNT). The result of this study can be useful in micro structure and construction industries.Fri, 29 Jun 2018 19:30:00 +0100Combination Resonance of Nonlinear Rotating Balanced Shafts Subjected to Periodic Axial Load
http://jsm.iau-arak.ac.ir/article_542575_115452.html
Dynamic behavior of a circular shaft with geometrical nonlinearity and constant spin, subjected to periodic axial load is investigated. The case of parametric combination resonance is studied. Extension of shaft center line is the source of nonlinearity. The shaft has gyroscopic effect and rotary inertia but shear deformation is neglected. The equations of motion are derived by extended Hamilton principle and discretized by Galerkin method. The multiple scales method is applied to the complex form of equation of motion and the system under parametric combination resonance is analyzed. The attention is paid to analyze the effect of various system parameters on the shape of resonance curves and amplitude of system response. Furthermore, the role of external damping on combination resonance of linear and nonlinear systems is discussed. It will be shown that the external damping has different role in linear and nonlinear shaft models. To validate the perturbation results, numerical simulation is used.

http://jsm.iau-arak.ac.ir/article_542582_115452.html
In the present work, the mathematical model of a homogeneous, isotropic thermoelastic double porous micro-beam, based on the Euler-Bernoulli theory is developed in the context of Lord-Shulman [1] theory of thermoelasticity. Laplace transform technique has been used to obtain the expressions for lateral deflection, axial stress, axial displacement, volume fraction field and temperature distribution. A numerical inversion technique has been applied to recover the resulting quantities in the physical domain. Variations of axial displacement, axial stress, lateral deflection, volume fraction field and temperature distribution with axial distance are depicted graphically to show the effects of porosity and thermal relaxation time.

http://jsm.iau-arak.ac.ir/article_542583_115452.html
Atomic force microscope (AFM) has been developed at first for topography imaging; in addition, it is used for characterization of mechanical properties. Most researches have been primarily focused on rectangular single-beam probes to make vibration models simple. Recently, the U-shaped AFM probe is employed to determine sample elastic properties and has been developed to heat samples locally. In this study, a simplified analytical model of these U-shaped AFM is described and three beams have been used for modelling this probe. This model contains two beams are clamped at one end and connected with a perpendicular cross beam at the other end. The beams are supposed only in bending flexure and twisting, but their coupling allows a wide variety of possible dynamic behaviors. In the present research, the natural frequency and sensitivity of flexural and torsional vibration for AFM probes have been analyzed considering influence of scale effect. For this purpose, governing equations of dynamic behavior of U-shaped AFM probe are extracted based on Eringen's theory using Euler–Bernoulli beam theory and an analytical method is employed to solve these equations. The results in this paper have been extracted for different values of nonlocal parameters; it is shown that for a special case, there is a good agreement between reported results in available references and our results. The obtained results show that the frequencies of U-shaped AFM decrease with increasing the nonlocal parameter.Fri, 29 Jun 2018 19:30:00 +0100Determination of Optimal Parameters for Finite Plates with a Quasi-Square Hole
http://jsm.iau-arak.ac.ir/article_542586_115452.html
This paper aims at optimizing the parameters involved in stress analysis of perforated plates, in order to achieve the least amount of stress around the square-shaped holes located in a finite isotropic plate using metaheuristic optimization algorithms. Metaheuristics may be classified into three main classes: evolutionary, physics-based, and swarm intelligence algorithms. This research uses Genetic Algorithm (GA) from evolutionary algorithm category, Gravitational Search Algorithm (GSA) from physics-based algorithm category and Bat Algorithm (BA) from Swarm Intelligence (SI) algorithm category. The results obtained from the present study necessitate the determination of the actual boundary between finite and infinite plate for the plates with square-shaped holes. The design variables such as bluntness, hole orientation, and plate dimension ratio as effective parameters on stress distribution are investigated. The results obtained from comparing BA, GA and GSA indicate that BA as SI algorithm category competitive results, proper convergence to global optimal solution and more optimal stress level than the two mentioned algorithms. The obtained results showed that the aforementioned parameters have a significant impact on stress distribution around a square-shaped holes and that the structure’s load-bearing capability can be increased by proper selection of these parameters without needing any change in material properties.Fri, 29 Jun 2018 19:30:00 +0100Analytical Solutions of the FG Thick Plates with In-Plane Stiffness Variation and Porous ...

http://jsm.iau-arak.ac.ir/article_542594_115452.html
The present paper deals with the design of experimental work matrices for two groups of experiments by using Response surface methodology (RSM). The first EDM group was dealt with the use of kerosene dielectric alone, while the second was treated by adding the graphite micro powders mixing to dielectric fluid (PMEDM). The total heat flux generated and fatigue lives after EDM and PMEDM models were developed by FEM using ANSYS 15.0 software. The graphite electrodes gave a total heat flux higher than copper electrodes by (82.4 %). The use of graphite powder and both electrodes yielded more heat flux by (270.1 %) and (102.9 %) than the copper and graphite electrodes, respectively with use of kerosene dielectric alone. Using graphite electrodes and kerosene dielectric alone improved the WLT by (40.0 %) when compared with the use of copper electrodes. Whereas, using copper electrodes and the graphite powder improved the WLT by (66.7 %) compared with the use of graphite electrodes under the same machining conditions. Copper electrodes with graphite powder gave experimental fatigue safety factor higher by (30.38 %) when compared with using graphite electrodes and higher by (15.73%) and (19.77%) when compared with using the copper and graphite electrodes and kerosene dielectric alone, respectively.Fri, 29 Jun 2018 19:30:00 +0100Engineering Critical Assessments of Marine Pipelines with 3D Surface Cracks Considering Weld ...
http://jsm.iau-arak.ac.ir/article_542595_115452.html
Offshore pipelines are usually constructed by the use of girth welds, while welds may naturally contain flaws. Currently, fracture assessment procedures such as BS 7910 are based on the stress-based methods and their responses for situations with large plastic strain is suspicious. DNV-OS-F101 with limited modifications proposes a strain-based procedure for such plastic loads. In this paper 3D nonlinear elastic-plastic finite element analyses using the ABAQUS software are performed in order to compare existing stress- and strain-based procedures beside newly strain-based method which is called CRES approach in order to improve the criteria used in current guidelines particularly at large plastic strains. It is concluded that although BS 7910 values are closer to finite element results than other methods in elastic region, but it is still conservative. In the area of large plastic strain, CRES method is very less conservative in both case of with and without internal pressure in comparison to others. The comparison of numerical simulation results with those available experimental data reveals a good agreement.

http://jsm.iau-arak.ac.ir/article_542596_115452.html
Neutralization of external stimuli in dynamic systems has the major role in health, life, and function of the system. Today, dynamic systems are exposed to unpredicted factors. If the factors are not considered, it will lead to irreparable damages in energy consumption and manufacturing systems. Continuous systems such as beams, plates, shells, and panels that have many applications in different industries as the main body of a dynamic system are no exceptions for the damages, but paying attention to the primary design of model the automatic control against disturbances has highly met the objectives of designers and also has saved much of current costs. Beam structure has many applications in constructing blades of gas and wind turbines and robots. When it is exposed to external loads, it will have displacements in different directions. Now, it is the control approach that prevents from many vibrations by designing an automated system. In this study, a cantilever beam has been modeled by finite element and Timoshenko Theory. Using piezoelectric as sensor and actuator, it controls the beam under vibration by LQR controller. Now, in order to increase controllability of the system and reduce the costs, there are only spots of the beam where most displacement occurs. By controlling the spots and applying force on them, it has the most effect on the beam. By multi-objective particle swarm optimization or MOPSO algorithm, the best weighting matrices coefficients of LQR controller are determined due to sensor and actuator displacement or the beam vibration is controlled by doing a control loop.Fri, 29 Jun 2018 19:30:00 +0100Vibration Suppression of Simply Supported Beam under a Moving Mass using On-Line Neural Network ...

The non-dimensional equation of motion the beam acted upon by a moving mass is achieved. A Dirac-delta function is used to describe the position of the moving mass along the beam and its inertial effects. Analytical solution the equation of motion is presented for simply supported boundary condition. The hybrid controller of system includes of a controller network and an identifier network. The neural networks are multilayer feed forward and trained simultaneously. The performance and robustness of the proposed controller are evaluated for various values mass ratio of the moving mass to the beam and dimensionless velocity of a moving mass on the time history of deflection. The simulations verify effectiveness and robustness of controller. Fri, 29 Jun 2018 19:30:00 +0100Free Vibration Analysis of Non-Uniform Circular Nanoplate
http://jsm.iau-arak.ac.ir/article_542598_115452.html
In this paper, axisymmetric free vibration analysis of a circular Nano-plate having variable thickness was studied. The variation in thickness of plate was considered as a linearly in radial direction. Nonlocal elasticity theory was utilized to take into account size-dependent effects. Ritz functions was utilized to obtain the frequency equations for simply supported and clamped boundary. To verify accuracy of Ritz method, differential transform method (DTM) also used to drive the size dependent natural frequencies of circular nano-plates. The validity of solutions was performed by comparing present results with those of the literature for both classical plate and nano plate. Effect of nonlocal parameter, mode number and taper parameter on the natural frequency are investigated. Results showed that taper parameter has significant effect on the non-dimensional frequency and its effects on the clamped boundary condition is more than simply support.Fri, 29 Jun 2018 19:30:00 +0100Transversely Isotropic Magneto-Visco Thermoelastic Medium with Vacuum and without Energy Dissipation
http://jsm.iau-arak.ac.ir/article_542599_115452.html

http://jsm.iau-arak.ac.ir/article_542600_115452.html
This paper deals with the determination of the effect of varying material properties on the value of the stress intensity factors, KI and KII, for anisotropic plates containing cracks and subjected to a temperature change. Problems involving cracks and body forces, as well as thermal loads are analysed. The quadratic isoperimetric element formulation is utilized, and SIFs may be directly obtained using the ‘traction formula’ and the ‘displacement formula’. Three cracked plate geometries are considered in this study, namely: (1) a plate with an edge-crack; (2) a plate with a double edge-crack; (3) a plate with symmetric cracks emanating from a central hole. Where appropriate, finite element method (FEM) analyses are also performed in order to validate the results of the BEM analysis. The results of this study show that, for all crack geometries, the mode-I stress intensity factor, K∗I decreases as the anisotropy of the material properties is increased. Additionally, for all these cases, K∗I decreases as the angle of orientation of the material properties, , increases with respect to the horizontal axis. The results also show that BEM is an accurate and efficient method for two-dimensional thermoelastic fracture mechanics analysis of cracked anisotropic bodies.Fri, 29 Jun 2018 19:30:00 +0100Elastic-Plastic Transition of Pressurized Functionally Graded Orthotropic Cylinder using ...
http://jsm.iau-arak.ac.ir/article_542601_115452.html
In this paper the radial deformation and the corresponding stresses in a functionally graded orthotropic hollow cylinder with the variation in thickness and density according to power law and rotating about its axis under pressure is investigated by using Seth's transition theory. The material of the cylinder is assumed to be non-homogeneous and orthotropic. This theory helps to achieve better agreement between experimental and theoretical results. Results has been mentioned analytically and numerically. From the analysis, it has been concluded that cylinder made up of orthotropic material whose thickness increases radially and density decreases radially is on the safer side of the design as circumferential stresses are high for cylinder made up of isotropic material as compared to orthotropic material. This paper is based on elastic-plastic behavior which plays important role in practical design of structures for safety factor. Fri, 29 Jun 2018 19:30:00 +0100
