Elastic layers bonded to rigid surfaces have widely been used in many engineering applications. It is commonly accepted that while the bonded surfaces slightly influence the shear behavior of the layer, they can cause drastic changes on its compressive and bending behavior. Most of the earlier studies on this subject have been based on assumed displacement fields with assumed stress distributions, which usually lead to "average" solutions. These assumptions have somehow hindered the comprehensive study of stress/displacement distributions over the entire layer. In addition, the effects of geometric and material properties on the layer behavior could not be investigated thoroughly. In this study, a new formulation based on a modified Galerkin method developed by Mengi [Mengi, Y., 1980. A new approach for developing dynamic theories for structural elements. Part 1: Application to thermoelastic plates. International Journal of Solids and Structures 16, 1155-1168] is presented for the analysis of bonded elastic layers under their three basic deformation modes; namely, uniform compression, pure bending and apparent shear. For each mode, reduced governing equations are derived for a layer of arbitrary shape. The applications of the formulation are then exemplified by solving the governing equations for an infinite-strip-shaped layer. Closed form expressions are obtained for displacement/stress distributions and effective compression, bending and apparent shear moduli. The effects of shape factor and Poisson's ratio on the layer behavior are also investigated.

Elastic layers bonded to flexible reinforcements

Elastic layers bonded to reinforcing sheets are widely used in many engineering applications. While in most of the earlier applications, these layers are reinforced using steel plates, recent studies propose to replace "rigid" steel reinforcement with "flexible" fiber reinforcement to reduce both the cost and weight of the units/systems. In this study, a new formulation is presented for the analysis of elastic layers bonded to flexible reinforcements under (i) uniform compression, (ii) pure bending and (iii...
Solution of the dynamic frictional contact problem between a functionally graded coating and a moving cylindrical punch
BALCI, MEHMET NURULLAH; Dağ, Serkan (Elsevier BV, 2019-04-01)
This paper presents an analytical method developed to investigate the dynamic frictional contact mechanics between a functionally graded coating and a rigid moving cylindrical punch. Governing partial differential equations of elastodynamics are solved analytically by applying Galilean and Fourier transformations. Interface continuity and boundary conditions are written and contact problem is then reduced to a singular integral equation of the second kind. The singular integral equation is solved numericall...
A new formulation for the analysis of bonded elastic layers
Pınarbaşı, Seval; Akyüz, Uğurhan; Department of Civil Engineering (2007)
Elastic layers bonded to reinforcing sheets are widely used in many engineering applications, e.g., as elastic foundations to machinery, as seismic isolators to structures, etc. Because of its practical importance, the behavior of bonded elastic layers under some basic deformation modes (e.g., compression, bending and shear modes) has attracted the attention of many researchers. However, the analytical works available in literature involve, with the object of obtaining design formulas, many simplifying assu...
Compression of solid and annular circular discs bonded to rigid surfaces
Pinarbasi, Seval; Mengi, Yalcin; Akyüz, Uğurhan (Elsevier BV, 2008-08-01)
Although it is noted in the literature that the presence of a central hole in an elastic layer bonded to rigid surfaces can cause significant drop in its compression modulus not much, attention is given for investigating thoroughly and in detail the influence of the hole oil the layer behavior. This paper presents analytical solutions to the problem ofthe uniform compression of bonded hollow circular elastic layers, which includes solid circular layers as a special case as the radius of hollow section vanis...
An affine microsphere approach to modeling strain-induced crystallization in rubbery polymers
NATEGHİ, AREF; Dal, Hüsnü; Keip, M. -A.; MIEHE, CHRISTIAN (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2018-05-01)
Upon stretching a natural rubber sample, polymer chains orient themselves in the direction of the applied load and form crystalline regions. When the sample is retracted, the original amorphous state of the network is restored. Due to crystallization, properties of rubber change considerably. The reinforcing effect of the crystallites stiffens the rubber and increases the crack growth resistance. It is of great importance to understand the mechanism leading to strain-induced crystallization. However, limite...
