A remark on the state-space concept applied to bending, buckling and free vibration of composite laminates

Khdeir, AA
The present study shows that the state-space concept used to generate exact solutions for various boundary conditions for bending, buckling and free vibration of composite laminates, can be modified easily and exactly and has no drawback when the laminate thickness is reduced. Numerical results for central deflections, axial stresses, transverse shear stresses, critical buckling loads and natural frequencies of cross-ply laminated plates are obtained using the classical, first- and third-order theories for large side to thickness ratios.

In this research, the metal foams with 4,8,16 pores/cm, an aluminium foam which has 0.93 porosity and a copper foam which has 0.90 porosity that are integrated into a heat sink with a special geometry were designed and tested. During the process of the experiments, the thermal resistances and the pressure losses of the metal foam integrated heat sinks were tested by applying different heat fluxes (10.67, 15.75, 21.33 and 31.50 kW/m(2)) and two distinct frontal air velocities (4 and 6 m/s) to the specimens. ...
Inelastic seismic response of precast concrete frames with constructed plastic hinges
Sucuoğlu, Haluk (1995-07-01)
A modified seismic design concept is introduced for precast concrete frames in which beam plastic hinges with reduced yield capacities are constructed away from the precast beam-column connections arranged at the column faces. Plastic hinge location and yield capacity are employed as the basic parameters of an analytical survey in which the inelastic dynamic responses of a conventional precast frame and its modified counterparts are calculated and compared under two earthquake excitations by using a general...
External Search Coil as a Means of Measuring Rotor Speed of an Induction Motor
Özlü Ertan, Hatice Gülçin; Keysan, Ozan (2009-07-03)
The study in this paper investigates whether the air gap harmonics can be identified by using an external search coil placed on the frame of an induction motor. For this purpose the study focuses on the prediction of rotor speed of an induction motor from external search coil emf, using spectral analysis techniques. In the first stage of the study the type of search coil which maximizes the induced emf is sought, also the position of the coil on the induced emf is investigated. Several motors are tested wit...
Analysis of laminated glass arches and cylindrical shells
Dural, Ebru; Aşık, Mehmet Zülfü; Department of Engineering Sciences (2011)
In this study, a laminated glass unit which consists of two glass sheets bonded together by PVB is analyzed as a curved beam and as a cylindrical shell. Laminated glass curved beams and shells are used in architecture, aerospace, automobile and aircraft industries. Curved beam and shell structures differ from straight structures because of their initial curvature. Because of mathematical complexity most of the studies are about linear behavior rather than nonlinear behavior of curved beam and shell units. T...
A refined dynamic theory for viscoelastic cylindrical shells and cylindrical laminated composites, Part 1: General theory
Birlik, G.A.; Mengi, Yalçın (Elsevier BV, 1989-4)
Through the use of a new technique, approximate theories are developed for the dynamic response of viscoelastic cylindrical shells and cylindrical laminated composites (CLC). The new technique eliminates the inconsistencies between the deformation shapes assumed over the thickness of the shell and the boundary or interface conditions to be satisfied on its lateral surfaces. Accordingly, the theory correctly predicts the dynamic behavior of shells or CLC without using any correction factors. Due to its lengt...
