Frictionless double contact problem for an axisymmetric elastic layer between an elastic stamp and a flat support with a circular hole

Mert, Oya
This study considers the elastostatic contact problem of a semi-infinite cylinder. The cylinder is compressed against a layer lying on a rigid foundation. There is a sharp-edged circular hole in the middle of the foundation. It is assumed that all the contacting surfaces are frictionless and only compressive normal tractions can be transmitted through the interfaces. The contact along interfaces of the elastic layer and the rigid foundation forms a circular area of which outer diameter is unknown. The problem is converted into the singular integral equations of the second kind by means of Hankel and Fourier integral transform techniques. The singular integral equations are then reduced to a system of linear algebraic equations by using Gauss-Lobatto and Gauss-Jacobi integration formulas. This system is then solved numerically. In this study, firstly, the extent of the contact area between the layer and foundation are evaluated. Secondly, contact pressure between the cylinder and layer and contact pressure between the layer and foundation are calculated for various material pairs. Finally, stress intensity factor on the edge of the cylinder and in the end of the sharp-edged hole are calculated.


Frictional Hertzian contact between a laterally graded elastic medium and a rigid circular stamp
Dağ, Serkan; YILDIRIM, BORA; Ozatag, A. Cihan (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2013-08-01)
This study investigates the problem of sliding frictional contact between a laterally graded elastic medium and a rigid circular stamp. Analytical and computational methods are developed to evaluate the contact stresses. In the analytical formulation, spatial variation in the shear modulus of the graded medium is represented by an exponential function, and Poisson's ratio is taken as a constant. Coulomb's dry friction law is assumed to hold within the contact area. The two-dimensional plane elasticity probl...
Axisymmetric finite cylinder with one end clamped and the other under uniform tension containing a penny-shaped crack
KAMAN, METE ONUR; Gecit, Mehmet Rusen (Elsevier BV, 2008-09-01)
This study considers the axisymmetric analysis of a finite cylinder containing a penny-shaped transverse crack. Material of the cylinder is assumed to be linearly elastic and isotropic. One end of the cylinder is bonded to a fixed support while the other end is subjected to uniform axial tension. Solution is obtained by superposing the solutions for an infinite cylinder loaded at infinity and an infinite cylinder containing four cracks and a rigid inclusion loaded along the cracks and the inclusion. When th...
Monitoring the Microstructural Evolution in Spheroidized Steels by Magnetic Barkhausen Noise Measurements
DAVUT, Kemal; Gür, Cemil Hakan (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2010-12-01)
The aim of this study is to monitor nondestructively the degree of spheroidization in steels by Magnetic Barkhausen Noise (MBN) method. Various series of specimens consisting of either lamellar pearlite or partially/completely spheroidized carbides were produced from AISI 1060 steel by appropriate heat treatments. All specimens were characterized by metallographic examinations, hardness and MBN measurements. The results show that MBN signals are very sensitive to the variations in the microstructure caused ...
Free vibration analysis of anisotropic laminated composite shells of revolution
Yavuzbalkan, Erdem; Kayran, Altan; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2005)
In this thesis, the free vibration analysis of anisotropic laminated composite shells of revolution (ALCSOR) is studied. The governing equations are kinematic, constitutive, and motion equations. Geometrically linear strain-displacement equations of Reissner-Naghdi shell theory in combination with first-order shear deformation theory in which transverse shear and rotatory inertia effects are taken into consideration. The constitutive relations are for macrosopically ALCSOR in which statically equivalent for...
The stress intensity factors for an infinitely long transversely isotropic, thick-walled cylinder which contains a ring-shaped crack
Altinel, T; Fildis, H; Yahsi, OS (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 1996-01-01)
In this study the elastostatic axisymmetric problem for a long thick-walled transversely anisotropic cylinder containing a ring-shaped internal crack is analyzed. The problem is reduced to a singular integral equation which has a simple Cauchy kernel as the dominant part by using Hankel and Fourier transform techniques. These equations are then solved numerically and the stress intensity factors are calculated.
