Static Stability Analysis of Mass Sensors Consisting of Hygro-Thermally Activated Graphene Sheets Using a Nonlocal Strain Gradient TheoryRajendran SELVAMANI, Madasamy MAHAVEER SREEJAYAN & Farzad EBRAHIMI
This paper develops a nonlocal strain gradient plate model for buckling analysis of graphene sheets under hygro-thermal environments with mass sensors. For a more accurate analysis of graphene sheets, the proposed theory contains two scale parameters related to the nonlocal and strain gradient effects. The graphene sheet is modeled via a two-variable shear deformation plate theory that does not need shear correction factors. Governing equations of a nonlocal strain gradient graphene sheet on the elastic...
Investigation on Machining Characteristics of Banana Fiber and Silicon Carbide Reinforced Polymer Matrix CompositesVenkatachalam GOPALAN, Vignesh PRAGASAM, Hitesh Byatarayanapura NARAYANASWAMY, Gokula Krishnan BALASUBRAMANIAN & Pandivelan CHINNAIYAN
In this study, machining characteristics of polymer composite consisting of banana fiber and silicon carbide (SiC) as reinforcements and epoxy resin as matrix are investigated. Reinforcement phases consist of raw banana fiber powder sieved to 100 microns size of 1% (w/w) and SiC powder of 1% (w/w). The conventional machining process is carried out on the fabricated composite samples by considering the depth of cut, feed rate and speed as influential parameters. The central composite...
Misfit dislocation in a precipitate/matrix interface of any orientation relative to the matrix free-surfaceJ. Colin
The presence of an edge dislocation in a surface of a two-dimensional precipitate of square shape embedded in a semi-infinite matrix has been discussed when the precipitate is submitted to misfit strain due to the lattice mismatch between the two phases. Considering any orientation of the precipitate relative to the matrix free-surface, the total force applying on the dislocation has been analytically calculated and its equilibrium position has been determined. The conjugated effects of the...
It is the aim of this work to develop and extend the theory of undamageable materials to graphene. An undamageable material is a material where the value of the damage variable remains zero throughout the deformation process. It is anticipated that the constitutive equations for undamageable graphene can be modeled with differential equations for the case of graphene. The equations are solved for three cases: n = 1, n = 2, and the general case...
The purpose of this research was to study the monotonic and cyclic simple shear mode behavior of Bangkok clay, using direct simple shear apparatus. The monotonic specimens were prepared in a saturated condition and were K0 consolidated before being undrained sheared. The specimens were sheared at the shear strain rate of 5% per hour until the shear strain reached 20%. The Stress History and Normalized Soil Engineering Properties (SHANSEP) method was applied to analyze the...
Investigation of Free Vibration and Buckling of Timoshenko Nano-beam Based on a General Form of Eringen Theory Using Conformable Fractional Derivative and Galerkin MethodFarogh Soufi MOHAMMADI, Zaher RAHIMI, Wojciech SUMELKA & Xiao-Jun YANG
The purpose of this paper is to study the free vibration and buckling of a Timoshenko nano-beam using the general form of the Eringen theory generalized based on the fractional derivatives. In this paper, using the conformable fractional derivative (CFD) definition the generalized form of the Eringen nonlocal theory (ENT) is used to consider the effects of integer and noninteger stress gradients in the constitutive relation and also to consider small-scale effect in the vibration...
