Dynamic response of antisymmetric cross-ply laminated composite beams with arbitrary boundary conditions

Khdeir, AA
An analytical solution of the classical, first- and third-order laminate beam theories is developed to study the transient response of antisymmetric cross-ply laminated beams with generalized boundary conditions and for arbitrary loadings. A general modal approach, utilizing the state form of the equations of motion and their biorthogonal eigenfunctions, is presented to solve the equations of motion of beams with arbitrary boundary conditions. The results obtained using the higher-order theory of Reddy (HOBT) are compared with those obtained by Timoshenko shear deformation beam theory (FOBT) as well as the Bernoulli-Euler theory (CBT).


Transient response of an infinite elastic medium containing a spherical cavity subjected to torsion
Zakout, U; Akkas, Z; Tupholme, GE (2000-06-01)
An exact closed-form solution is obtained for the transient response of an infinite isotropic elastic medium containing a spherical cavity subjected to torsional surface loading using the residual variable method. The main advantage of the present approach is that it eliminates the computational problems arising in the existing methods which are primarily based on Fourier or Laplace transformation techniques. Extensive numerical results for the circumferential displacements and shear stresses at various loc...
Free-Vibration Analysis of Ring-Stiffened Branched Composite Shells of Revolution
Kayran, Altan (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), 2010-4)
Application of the multisegment numerical integration technique is extended to the free-vibration analysis of macroscopically anisotropic filament-wound branched shells of revolution with ring stiffeners, considering the variation of the thickness and winding angle. The solution procedure is based on a modified-frequency trial method, which processes on the numerically integrated transformed fundamental shell equations that are obtained in terms of finite exponential Fourier transform of the fundamental she...
Numerical Modeling of Electromagnetic Scattering from Periodic Structures by Transformation Electromagnetics
ÖZGÜN, ÖZLEM; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (2016-09-22)
The transformation electromagnetics is applied to the modeling of electromagnetic scattering from periodic structures in conjunction with the finite element method with periodic boundary conditions. In a unit cell of periodic structure, a uniform mesh is used over a flat surface and the arbitrary periodic surface is modeled by a coordinate transformation. The major advantage of this approach is that arbitrary geometries can be handled by using a single and simple mesh. Therefore, repeated computations (such...
Excitonic effects on the nonlinear optical properties of small quantum dots
KARABULUT, İBRAHİM; Safak, H.; Tomak, Mehmet (IOP Publishing, 2008-08-07)
The excitonic effects on the nonlinear optical properties of small quantum dots with a semiparabolic confining potential are studied under the density matrix formalism. First, within the framework of the strong confinement approximation, we present the excitonic states and then calculate the excitonic effects on the nonlinear optical properties, such as second harmonic generation, third harmonic generation, nonlinear absorption coefficient and refractive index changes. We find the explicit analytical expres...
Diffusion Equation-Based Finite Element Modeling of a Monumental Worship Space
Gul, Zuhre Su; Xiang, Ning; Çalışkan, Mehmet (World Scientific Pub Co Pte Lt, 2017-12-01)
In this work, a diffusion equation model (DEM) is applied to a room acoustics case for in-depth sound field analysis. Background of the theory, the governing and boundary equations specifically applicable to this study are presented. A three-dimensional geometric model of a monumental worship space is composed. The DEM is solved over this model in a finite element framework to obtain sound energy densities. The sound field within the monument is numerically assessed; spatial sound energy distributions and f...
