AB - Abstract This investigation examines the role of porosity in the perforation resistance of 3-D woven fiber reinforced epoxy panels under impact by rigid projectiles at velocities of 100 to 200 m/s. Incident and residual velocities are measured to determine the energy absorption by the target. To compare samples of different areal density, the energy is normalized by the target areal density. The sample responses segregate by porosity, and the more highly porous samples absorb a greater amount of specific energy. The reason for this is unclear but may be due to the deflection of matrix cracks by pores or due to the greater flexibility of the fibers to absorb energy through tensile straining. Although porosity is generally an undesirable property in textile composites, the induction of porosity may result in reduced panel weight without degradation of ballistic performance, a clear advantage for weight minimization.

T2 - International Journal of Robust and Nonlinear Control
AB - We study a control problem for a special class of underactuated mechanical systems, namely for mechanical systems with several directly actuated degrees of freedom and a single unactuated degree of freedom that must be controlled through the system coupling. Specific assumptions are introduced that define this class, which includes many important models of mechanical system examples. The main result of the paper is the construction of a discontinuous nonlinear feedback controller for which the closed loop equilibrium at the origin is made ‘globally attractive’. The control construction approach is introduced in detail, and a proof of attractiveness is presented. The results are applied to control of the planar motion of a rigid body with a single unactuated internal degree of freedom. Copyright © 2000 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

T2 - 2000 American Control Conference (ACC 2000)
AB - We develop equations of motion for multibody vehicles that can be used for nonlinear system analysis and control design. A multibody vehicle consists of a base body that can undergo general motion in three dimensions, as well as a finite number of body interconnections that can deform relative to the base body and hence define the shape of the multibody. A Lagrangian development leads to equations of motion that are expressed in terms of the locked inertia and the mechanical connection. We show that the equations of motion can be written in terms of the base body translational and angular momentum (or equivalently the base body translational and angular velocities) and generalized coordinates for the shape. The coupling between the base body translational and rotational dynamics and the shape dynamics is made clear in this formulation. We define several fundamental categories of underactuated control problems, based on specific control actuation assumptions.

AB - We develop a mathematical model that describes the accelerating flight of a spacecraft in a fixed plane. The spacecraft is represented as a rigid body and fuel slosh dynamics are included using a common pendulum model. The control inputs are defined by a transverse body fixed force and a pitching moment about the center of mass of the spacecraft; the slosh dynamics are assumed to be unactuated. The model is placed in the form of a nonlinear control system that allows for the study of planar vehicle maneuvers. We develop a nonlinear feedback controller that stabilizes a relative equilibrium corresponding to suppression of the transverse, pitch, and slosh dynamics. This controller is a significant extension of what has been done previously, since it simultaneousl y controls both the rigid vehicle motion and the fuel slosh dynamics.

T2 - Metallurgical and Materials Transactions A
AB - The heat generation from a notch during the compression-compression fatigue of a cellular Al alloy has been measured and compared with a model. The measurements indicate that heat is generated because of hysteresis occurring in narrow cyclic plastic zones outside the notch. This process continues until the notch closes. At closure, a brief period of heat generation arises because of friction along the notch faces. A plasticity model based on the Dugdale zone is shown to provide a reasonably accurate characterization of the heat generated, with the proviso that an “ineffective” zone be transposed onto the notch tip. It is found that the temperatures generated are too small to cause fatigue by thermal softening. A fatigue mechanism based on either geometric softening of the cells or crack growth in the cell walls is implied.

T2 - Materials Science and Engineering: A
AB - Abstract A one directional acoustic emission (AE) source characterization has been used during a three point bending fracture toughness test on 6061 aluminum matrix composites with Al2O3 particle reinforcements of 5 and 10 μm sizes, in order to evaluate the dynamic process of micro-fracture in these materials. Different acoustic emission sources are characterized and, as a result, two types of AE events are distinguished. It is observed that at very low strain levels void nucleation is the main source for acoustic emission. At higher levels, the micro pop-in of primary voids and their eventual coalescence results in a different type of acoustic emission. In fine particle reinforced materials, when the amplitude of AE events in void nucleation at fine particles is not high enough to be detected, the main source of AE events is only the void coalescence. By increasing the particle size, the number of detectable events during void nucleation is increased.

AU - Rabiei, A
T2 - Acta Materialia
AB - Abstract The microstructure and durability of a thermal barrier coating (TBC) produced by the thermal spray method have been characterized. Upon exposure, the bond coat chemistry and microstructure change by inter-diffusion with the substrate and upon thickening of the thermally grown oxide (TGO). A wedge impression test, in conjunction with observations by scanning electron microscopy, has been used to probe the failure mechanisms. At short exposure times, when the TGO thickness is less than about 5 μ m, the growth of the TGO does not affect the crack patterns in the TBC and delaminations induced by wedge impression propagate within the TBC about 30 μ m from the interface. An amorphous phase at the splat interfaces promotes this failure mode. As the thickness of TGO increases during exposure, cracks form in the TBC around imperfections at the interface. Moreover, induced delaminations develop a trajectory close to the interface, propagating not only through the TBC but also within the TGO and along the interfaces. A scaling result based on the misfit around imperfections caused by TGO growth has been used to rationalize the critical TGO thickness when the TBC fails.

AB - Abstract This experimental investigation analyzes the soot formation effects of oxygen concentration in the oxidizer stream (O 2 + N 2 ) ventilating laminar jet nonpremixed methane flames. The base flame incorporates air as the oxidizer; two additional flames, with respective oxygen concentrations of 50% and 100% in the ventilating coflow, are also examined. The microstructure of soot collected from selected flame locations is determined combining thermophoretic sampling and transmission electron microscopy. A laser-light extinction technique is employed along with tomographic inversion to measure the soot volume fraction distributions within the three flames. The results indicate that soot surface growth and oxidation rates in the methane/50% oxygen flame are higher compared to the respective rates in the methane/air base flame. The rate of soot inception becomes stronger with increasing oxygen content in the oxidizer stream. Soot yields diminish with increasing oxygen concentration, as do luminous flame spatial dimensions. Soot aggregate data on the soot annulus suggest a higher degree of agglomeration under oxygen-enriched conditions. Finally, the fractal dimensions of selected soot aggregate samples are measured to be 1.64 (methane/air flame) and 1.65 (methane/50% oxygen flame), being similar to previously published values for carbonaceous soot.

T2 - COMBUSTION AND FLAME
AB - Abstract The influence of the addition of acetylene and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) on soot formation was studied experimentally for nonpremixed, axisymmetric, coflowing flames of methane with oxygen and oxygen-enriched air. Four reference flames, containing 21, 35, 50, and 100% of oxygen in the oxidizer stream, were seeded with calibrated levels of acetylene, acenaphthene (C12H10), phenanthrene (C14H10), and pyrene (C16H10). It was found that all additives studied enhance soot formation in the reference flames, with the integral soot content increasing linearly with the additive concentration. The increases in the flames’ soot volume fractions induced by the addition of PAH compounds were significantly larger relative to the increase due to acetylene addition. The effect of PAH addition on soot growth became substantially stronger with oxygen enrichment of the oxidizer stream. Conversely the relative increase in soot concentration in the flames seeded with acetylene was nearly the same regardless of oxygen content in the oxidizer stream. Estimated additive-to-soot conversion ratios show high degrees of PAHs transformation to soot for all flames studied. The additive-to-soot conversion ratio for pyrene was found to be nearly 2 and remains practically constant with increase of oxygen content. Comparatively, the additive-to-soot conversion ratio for acetylene was close to 0.3 for methane/air flame and decreased with oxygen enrichment. These results suggest that conversion of PAHs to soot is controlled by a relatively fast kinetic mechanism. The conversion rate of acetylene is much slower and may involve a number of stages, including rate-limiting stage of PAHs formation.

AB - Chemical structures of filtration combustion waves in an inert porous media were analyzed comparatively for lean and rich methane-air mixtures. Temperature, velocity, and chemical products of the combustion waves were studied experimentally in the range of equivalence ratios from 0.2 to 2.5. Downstream (superadiabatic) wave propagation was observed for ultralean ( ≤0.45) and ultrarich ( ≥1.7) mixtures. Upstream (underadiabatic) propagation corresponds to the range of equivalence ratios from 0.45 to 1.7. It was found that with the equal heat content, rich mixtures have essentially higher combustion temperatures than corresponding lean mixtures. The products of partial methane oxidation (H2, CO, and C2 hydrocarbons) are dominant for ultrarich superadiabatic combustion where up to 60% of methane is converted to CO and H2. A numerical model, based on a two-temperature approximation and detailed combustion chemistry, is developed to analyze species profiles and the combustion mechanism of the filtration waves. The model predictions for combustion temperatures and chemical products are in good agreement with experimental data. Kinetic simulation revealed the complex chemical structure of the ultrarich superadiabatic waves. It is shown that this wave is composed of an exothermic “partial oxidation” reaction zone followed by an endothermic “steam reforming” zone.

AB - A three-dimensional Navier-Stokes solver for chemically reacting flows is used to study the structure of a supersonic hydrogen-air flame stabilized in a Mach 2.4 rectangular cross-section wind tunnel. The numerical model uses a 9-species, 21-reaction hydrogen oxidation mechanism and employs Menter's hybrid κ-ω/κ-e turbulence model. An assumed probability density function is used to account for the effects of turbulent temperature fluctuations on the ensemble-averaged chemical reaction rates. Results are presented for a configuration studied at the University of Michigan in which the effects of wedge-generated shock waves on flame stability were determined. Computed pitot and static pressure profiles are compared with experimental measurements, and axial density gradient contour plots are compared with experimental schlieren photographs. The highly three-dimensional structure of the flame is described in detail, and stabilization mechanisms are discussed

T2 - PROCEEDINGS OF THE COMBUSTION INSTITUTE
AB - To study the transient response of a diffusion flame to an unsteady flowfied, quatitative measurements of velocity, using particle-imaging velocimetry, and OH measurements, using planar laser-induced fluorescence, were made simultaneously in an oscillating conterflow diffusion flame. These non-intrusive measurements were performed to spatially and tempoerally resolved flowrield and flame characteristics as a function of initial strain rate and forcing frequency. For the forcing frequencies considered in this study, the strain rate fluctuations were found to lag the velocity fluctuations, but the phase difference decresed with increasing forcing frequency. At lower forcing frequencies, the width of the OH field responded quasi-steadily, but as the forcing frequency increased, the OH field showed transient effects. The dilatation velocity, defined as the difference between the minimum velocity in the preheat zone and the maximum velocity in the reaction zone, was used as a flame temperature indicator. The dilatation velocity revealed that the phase difference between the velocity and the temperature increased with increasing forcing frequency, confirming the existence of a diffusion limited response. The resuls presented here help to illuminate the interconnecting relationships between the chemistry, fluid dynamics, and reactant transport times.

T2 - JOURNAL OF FLUIDS ENGINEERING-TRANSACTIONS OF THE ASME
AB - Steady incompressible turbulent air flow and transient carbon monoxide transport in an empty Rochester-style human exposure chamber have been numerically simulated and compared with experimental data sets. The system consisted of an inlet duct with a continuous carbon monoxide point source, 45- and 90-degree bends, a round diffuser, a round-to-square transition, a rectangular diffuser, the test chamber, a perforated floor, and again transition pieces from the chamber to an outlet duct. Such a configuration induced highly nonuniform vortical flow patterns in the chamber test area where a pollutant concentration is required to be constant at breathing level for safe and accurate inhalation studies. Presented are validated momentum and mass transfer results for this large-scale system with the main goals of determining the development of tracer gas (CO) distributions in the chamber and analyzing the contributions to CO-mixing. Numerical simulations were conducted employing a k-ε model and the latest available RNG k-ε model for air and CO-mixing. Both models predict similar velocity fields and are in good agreement with measured steady and transient CO-concentrations. It was found that secondary flows in the inlet section and strong vortical flow in the chamber with perforated flooring contributed to effective mixing of the trace gas at breathing levels. Specifically, in the height range of 1.4 m<h<2.0 m above the chamber floor, predicted CO-concentrations rapidly reached a near constant value which agrees well with experimental results. This work can be extended to analyze trace gas mixing as well as aerosol dispersion in occupied test chambers with or without flow redirection devices installed in the upstream section. A complementary application is particle transport and deposition in clean rooms of the electronic, pharmaceutical, and health care industries. [S0098-2202(00)01702-8]

Mechatronics design principles were followed to design the device so that discrete paper samples can be creped at speeds over 250 meters/minute. The device has been used to study the effect of various manufacturing process parameters such as the creping adhesive type, concentration (application rate), creping geometry (creping angle), machine speed, and moisture content in the sheet at the time of creping, and their influence on sheet structure and creping forces. A mechanistic description of the creping process is also presented. [S1087-1357(00)02102-X]

AB - Issues concerning r-refinement adaptation are discussed in terms of the research underway at North Carolina State University. A brief justification for adaptation is offered and adaptation criteria are stated. The NCSU adaptation algorithms DSAGA and SIERRA are described and results obtained with these algorithms are used to illustrate the adaptation issues. Grid quality, truncation errors added and reduced by adaptation, and current research areas are discussed. Qualitative analysis of grids produced by the adaptive algorithms reveals that conventional standards of grid quality are violated frequently in regions where solution improvement due to adaptation is evident. Alignment of the grid with solution features is shown to be a more appropriate indication of mesh improvement than cell shape. Benefits and weaknesses of r-refinement adaptation are summarized and areas for further research are noted.

AU - Losordo, TM
AU - Hobbs, AO
T2 - AQUACULTURAL ENGINEERING
AB - North Carolina State University has been active in the development, evaluation and demonstration of recirculating aquaculture technology since 1989. In the process, numerous engineering and economic spreadsheets (worksheets) have been developed to assist in the design and analysis of these systems. The spreadsheet described in this paper is based on a set of mass balance equations developed and described by Losordo and Westers (Vol. 27, 1994 pp. 9–60) to estimate the carrying capacity and required flow rates of recirculating aquaculture production systems. This spreadsheet can be used to estimate the recycle flowrate that is required to maintain user specified water quality conditions for a given feed input rate and water treatment system configuration. These water quality conditions include suspended solids, total ammonia-nitrogen, and dissolved oxygen concentration. The spreadsheet also provides an estimate of the new water required by the system to maintain a user specified nitrate-nitrogen concentration. In addition, the spreadsheet provides an estimate of the required biofilter volume and cross-sectional (top) surface area for the given biofilter shape, depth and specific surface area of the biofilter media. The mass balance equations used in this spreadsheet are based upon waste metabolites generated and oxygen consumed by daily inputs of feed into a system.

T2 - INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF HEAT AND MASS TRANSFER
AB - The proper choice of nozzle in a twin-roll strip casting process is important to obtain the stabilization of the molten steel and free surface and a stable temperature distribution in a wedge-shaped pool. In this study, a numerical investigation of the coupled turbulent flow and heat transfer in a twin-roll strip casting process was performed for two patterns of melt-feed through a nozzle. In addition, the patterns for the removal of superheat for different gap thicknesses were analyzed using a local Nusselt number along the roll surface. The flow turbulence was examined using the low-Reynolds-number k–ε turbulence model of Launder and Sharma. The results show that the use of a submerged nozzle may have a beneficial impact on the stabilization of the free-surface zone. The increased gap thickness yields an increased local Nusselt number in the downstream section of the wedge-shaped pool where the cross-sectional flow area is reduced.

TI - High strain-rate shear-strain localization in f.c.c. crystalline materials: a perturbation analysis
AU - Zikry, MA
AU - Pothier, MR

T2 - INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF SOLIDS AND STRUCTURES
AB - Abstract A new perturbation formulation has been developed that is based on a rate-dependent crystalline plasticity constitutive formulation to investigate planar high strain-rate instabilities and shear-strain localization in face-centered cubic (f.c.c.) crystalline materials. This new formulation can account for strain-rate sensitivity values that range from rate-independent to highly rate-dependent values. Hence, accurate and detailed predictions of material instabilities and shear-strain localization can be obtained for high strain-rate deformations of crystalline materials that are rate-sensitive, such as f.c.c. materials. Critical instability parameters are obtained for deformation modes that account for the effects of strain-rate history, inertia, strain-hardening, wave number, and thermal and geometrical softening for applied strain-rates that range from 100 to 5000 s−1. Post-instability behavior and localization modes are monitored by tracking the rate of growth of stability parameters beyond the initial instability point. Results from these perturbation analyses are in good agreement with rate-independent limiting cases and high strain-rate experimental observations. The present study underscores the importance of characterizing material instabilities and shear-strain localization in terms of the competing softening and hardening mechanisms of the lattice structure.

AU - Wu, F

T2 - INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF CONTROL
AB - In this paper, we seek to provide a systematic anti-windup control synthesis approach for systems with actuator saturation within a linear parameter-varying (LPV) design framework. The closed-loop induced L2 gain control problem is considered. Different from conventional two-step anti-windup design approaches, the proposed scheme directly utilizes saturation indicator parameters to schedule accordingly the parameter-varying controller. Hence, the synthesis conditions are formulated in terms of linear matrix inequalities (LMIs) that can be solved very efficiently. The resulting gain-scheduled controller is non-linear in general and would lead to graceful performance degradation in the presence of actuator saturation non-linearities and linear performance recovery. An aircraft longitudinal dynamics control problem with two input saturation non-linearities is used to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed LPV anti-windup scheme.

TI - Transient flow field effects on soot volume fraction in diffusion flames
AU - Decroix, ME
AU - Roberts, WL
T2 - COMBUSTION SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
AB - Quantitative measurements of soot concentration made in an oscillating propane-air counterflow diffusion flame are presented. The non-intrusive laser induced incandescence (LII) technique was used to make spatially and temporally resolved measurements of soot volume fraction in these transient flames as a function of initial steady strain rate, forcing frequency, and forcing amplitude of the strain rate fluctuation. The results of this study show that the soot formation process becomes insensitive to fluctuations in strain rate at high initial strain rates. At low initial strain rates, however, the maximum soot concentration is drastically reduced with high frequency, high amplitude fluctuations compared to the corresponding steady strain soot volume fraction. Low frequency oscillations are found to always increase the maximum soot concentration, by up to a factor of six for some conditions. These measurements provide important insight into the response of the chemistry control1ing the soot formation process in flamelets subject to unsteady rates of strain.

T2 - COMBUSTION SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
AB - Experimental results of N2-diluted counterflow diffusion flames of CH4 and C3H18 vs, air with local extinction are reponed. The local extinction was caused by inert jet impingement on flames at selected locations either from the fuel or oxidizer side of the reaction zone. This was done to simulate how local extinction affects flame extinction over a larger flame area. The results are: (1) Local extinction of both CH4 and C3H8 flames occurs at a lower strain rate when the inert jet impingement originates from the airside. (2) The global extinction strain rate for CH4 flames is insensitive to the location and number (one vs. three) of local extinction sites. (3) For C3H8 flames, one single inert jet impinging from the airside along the centerline is more effective in causing global extinction than three inert jets impinging at regions away from the centerline. This suggests that flame extinction over a larger area may depend on strategically selected smaller local extinction sites. Furthermore, since simila...

T2 - COMBUSTION AND FLAME
AB - Abstract Simultaneous Rayleigh scattering and CH planar laser-induced fluorescence (PLIF) measurements near the stabilization region of a lifted methane–air diffusion flame are presented. The goals of this investigation are to establish flow patterns responsible for complete breaks in the CH profile that indicate local flame extinction and evaluate the stabilization mechanisms over a range of flow conditions. Considerable attention has been given to vortex–flame interactions as a primary extinction mechanism of turbulent diffusion flames. The existence of holes in the flame zone is thought to result from the radial penetration of the flame by vortices from the internal fuel jet. In this investigation, Rayleigh scattering is used as a qualitative indication of gas temperature, thereby providing valuable information about the fluid near regions of local extinction, as indicated by well-defined breaks in the CH layer. The extent of premixedness in the region upstream from the CH structure is also assessed from the Rayleigh signal level. Furthermore, the roles of premixedness in flame stabilization, the nature of the leading edge, and lift-off height oscillation are discussed.

The Brinkman‐Forchheimer‐extended Darcy equation is used to describe the fluid flow in the porous region. The energy equation for the porous region accounts for the effect of thermal dispersion. The dependence of the Nusselt number on a number of parameters, such as the Reynolds number, the Darcy number, the Forchheimer coefficient, as well as the thickness of the porous region is investigated. The numerical results obtained in this research are in agreement with published experimental data.

T2 - COMPUTERS & FLUIDS
AB - Abstract Transient laminar axisymmetric flow through a tube with a smooth local area reduction of 75% is considered. Using an experimentally validated control volume method, the influence of three rheology models (i.e., Newtonian, power law and Quemada) are investigated. Three Womersley numbers ( Wo=r 0 ω/ν 1/2 :=4.0, 7.5 and 12.5) are compared for a sinusoidal input pulse which varies between 0 and 400 with a mean Reynolds number of 200. The primary application is pulsatile flow in axisymmetric stenosed artery segments. Results show that for the highest Womersley number considered here, a second co-rotating vortex is formed distal to the primary vortex. Also, the shear-thinning rheological models have a secondary effect on the flow field that primarily appears in terms of subtle changes to the hemodynamic wall parameters (i.e., the time-averaged wall shear stress, spatial wall shear stress gradient, and oscillatory shear index). The non-Newtonian models affect the entrainment of fluid-like particles in the post-stenotic region measurably. The particle residence time (PRT), defined as the ratio of transient to steady residence times, is found to be less than or equal to unity for the majority of fluid elements for all rheologies and Womersley numbers considered. The highest fraction of PRT 10, is found to increase with increasing Wo and is decreased by the non-Newtonian formulations. This is due to a low-shear high-viscosity band that impedes the progress of fluid particles into the near wall region.

T2 - Journal of Automobile Engineering
AB - This paper presents a new approach to obtaining an accurate simple model for complex mechanical systems. The methodology is applied to a quarter-car suspension system with complex linkage structures. Firstly, a multi-body dynamic model which includes kinematic characteristics is developed. Using a linearization technique, a 32-state linear model for a quarter-car system is obtained. Secondly, model reduction techniques are applied to find a reasonable reduced-order model. The result of the model reduction shows the validity of the two-mass model given that the parameters are correctly identified. The paper presents both an analytical and an experimental way of identifying the parameters of the two-mass system based on the reduced-order model. The identified parameters are shown to vary significantly from component data typically used for the two-mass system depending on kinematic structures of the suspension system. The modelling procedures outlined in this paper provide a precise and efficient way of designing active suspension systems that minimizes a necessary tuning process.

T2 - MEDICAL ENGINEERING & PHYSICS
AB - It is assumed that critical hemodynamic factors play an important role in the onset, localization and degree of post-operative complications, for example, thrombosis and restenosis. Of special interest are sudden expansion flows, which may occur in straight artery segments such as the common carotid after endarterectomy or end-to-end anastomoses. Sudden expansion geometries are possible origins of early post-operative emboli and significant myointimal hyperplasia resulting in early or late complications. Transient laminar axisymmetric and fully three-dimensional blood flows were simulated employing a validated finite volume code in conjunction with a Runge–Kutta particle tracking technique. Disturbed flow indicators, which may predict the onset of thrombosis and/or restenosis, were identified and employed to evaluate 90°-step and smooth expansion geometries. Smooth expansion geometries have weaker disturbed flow features than step expansion geometries. Specifically, the regions near the expansion wall and the reattachment point are susceptible to both atherosclerotic lesion and thrombi formations as indicated by non-uniform hemodynamic indicators such as near-zero wall shear stress and elevated wall shear stress gradients as well as blood particle accumulation and deposition. A new parameter, the wall shear stress angle deviation (WSSAD) has been introduced, which indicates areas of abnormal endothelial cell morphology and particle wall deposition. In turn, regions of low wall shear stress and high wall shear stress gradients are recognized as susceptible sites for arterial diseases. Thus, it is interesting to note that high WSSAD surface areas cover low wall shear stress, high wall shear stress gradient locations as well as high wall particle deposition. A gradual change in step expansion geometry provides better results in terms of WSSAD values and hence potentially reducing atherosclerosis as well as thrombi formation.

AB - In this work, we consider the issues regarding the homogenization of fiber-reinforced layers in a laminate in the presence of macroscopic (ply-level) stress gradients. This is accomplished by considering a series of (free edge) boundary value problems similar to those treated by Pagano and Rybicki in 1974. Despite our inability to provide such a homogenization theory, if one truly exists, we can devise approaches to predict the fiber/matrix interfacial stresses in an arbitrary cell by applying certain displacements and/or tractions on the cell boundaries. These boundary conditions are those derived by representing each layer in the laminate by conventional effective modulus theory. It is shown that these approximations can lead to reasonably accurate interfacial stresses and offer great promise as a means of solving practical laminate problems reinforced by fibers of moderate diameter.

AB - The existence of "lateral birefringence," i.e., the difference between the refractive index for light polarized parallel to the fiber radius and light polarized perpendicular to the radius in the cross-sectional plane, combined with the existence of electron diffraction contrast "bands" in longitudinal fiber sections has led to work appearing to indicate that para-aramid fibers, in particular poly(para-phenylene terephthalamide), have an almost crystallographically perfect orthotropic structure in which the hydrogen bonds are all parallel to fiber radii. Optical path difference profiles, calculated based on the proposed orthotropic structure, are in reasonable qualitative agreement with interference microscope data. Quantitatively, however, the orthotropic structure is only partially developed based on published values of the principle refractive indices. Furthermore, the degree to which this structure is developed varies with distance from the fiber axis in some fibers' types.

AU - Yuan, FG
AU - Yang, S
T2 - COMPOSITES SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
AB - Abstract Asymptotic crack-tip fields, including the effect of transverse shear deformation, in an anisotropic plate under bending, twisting moments and transverse shear loads are presented. By utilizing the Hellinger–Reissner variational principle, the equilibrium equations and generalized strain/stress relations for anisotropic Reissner plate theory are obtained. Assuming the displacement and stress resultant are in a separation-of-variable form, it is found that, for the first two order terms of the asymptotic solution, the equations governing crack-tip fields of anisotropic plate bending are analogous to those governing plane stress and anti-plane deformation of anisotropic elasticity. Thus the Stroh formalism can be used to characterize the crack-tip fields of the anisotropic plate up to the second-order term and the energy release rate can be expressed in a very compact form in terms of stress intensity factors and the Barnett–Lothe tensor L. The first three order terms of the crack-tip displacement and stress fields including the “T-stresses” in bending and transverse shear are presented. The displacement and stress fields near crack tips in isotropic plates up to the second order are also provided. The energy release rate expression for orthotropic and isotropic plates is also derived. The solutions of anisotropic plates by a combination of in-plane and bending loads is also investigated. The expression of the path-independent integral, J, in terms of the generalized stress and strain is derived which is useful to calculate the value of stress intensity factors. Finally, on the basis of the asymptotic solutions, methods of determining stress intensity factors and T-stresses are proposed.

AB - This paper presents a unified loading parameter JT for creep–crack growth. The parameter JT is a path–independent integral and is derived through an energy analysis based on an assumption that a small creep deformation dominant region exists around the crack tip. The relationship between JT and existing path–independent or path–dependent integrals for special creep–crack growth problems is examined. Existing path–independent or path–dependent integrals for special cases of short or long time are included in JT. The present path–independent integral JT is not limited to any specified constitutive relations except for a small region close to the crack tip, and then it is valid for general creep materials. Energy analysis shows that JT possesses a definite physical meaning and can be used as a loading parameter to characterize the crack growth in time–dependent materials, such as metal under various high–temperature environments and other rate–sensitive materials. In fact, the JT is a kind of J–type integral for creep materials and it also has an intimate relation with existing C(t) and C* integrals. An experimental procedure for evaluating JTas well as C* is discussed.

TI - Three-dimensional Green's functions in anisotropic piezoelectric bimaterials

AU - Yuan, FG
T2 - INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF ENGINEERING SCIENCE
AB - Abstract In this paper, a recently proposed method by E. Pan and F.G. Yuan (Int. J. Solids Struct., 2000) for the calculation of the elastic bimaterial Green’s functions is extended to the analysis of three-dimensional Green’s functions for anisotropic piezoelectric bimaterials. The method is based on the Stroh formalism and two-dimensional Fourier transforms in combination with Mindlin’s superposition method. We first derive Green’s functions in exact form in the Fourier transform domain. When inverting the Fourier transform, a polar coordinate transform is introduced so that the radial integral from 0 to +∞ can be carried out exactly. Therefore, the bimaterial Green’s functions in the physical domain are derived as a sum of a full-space Green’s function and a complementary part. While the full-space Green’s function is in an explicit form, as derived recently by E. Pan and F. Tonon (Int. J. Solids Struct., 37 (2000): 943–958), the complementary part is expressed in terms of simple regular line integrals over [0, 2π] that are suitable for standard numerical integration. Furthermore, the present bimaterial Green’s functions can be reduced to the special cases such as half-space, surface, interfacial, and full-space Green’s functions. Uncoupled solutions for the purely elastic and purely electric case can also be simply obtained by setting the piezoelectric coefficients equal to zero. Numerical examples for Green’s functions are given for both half-space and bimaterial cases with transversely isotropic and anisotropic material properties to verify the applicability of the technique. Certain interesting features associated with these Green’s functions are observed and discussed, as related to the selected material properties.

AB - Ball-screw-driven slide systems are largely used in industry for motion control applications. Their performance using standard proportional-integral-derivative (PID) control algorithm is unsatisfactory in submicrometer motion control because of nonlinear friction effects. In this article, controllers based on a bristle-type nonlinear contact model are developed and implemented for submicrometer motion. For submicrometer positioning, a proportional-derivative (PD) control scheme with a nonlinear friction estimate algorithm is developed, and its performance is compared with that of a PID controller. For tracking, a disturbance observer was added to reject external disturbances and to improve robustness. The experimental results indicate that the proposed controller has consistent performance in positioning with under 1.5% of steady-state error in the submicrometer range. For tracking performance, the proposed controller shows good and robust tracking with respect to parameter variation.

T2 - AIAA Journal
AB - Methods for extending the AUSM+ low-diffusion flux-splitting scheme toward the calculation of real fluid flows at all speeds are presented. The single-phase behavior of the fluid is defined by the Sanchez-Lacombe equation of state, a lattice-fluid description. Liquid-vapor phase transitions are modeled through a homogeneous equilibrium approach. Time-derivative preconditioning is utilized to allow effective integration of the equation system at all flow speeds and all states of compressibility. Modifications to the preconditioned variant of AUSM+ necessary to preserve solution accuracy under such conditions are presented in detail. One-dimensional results are presented for the faucet problem, a classic test case for multifluid algorithms, as well as for liquid octane flow through a converging-diverging nozzle. Two-dimensional calculations are presented for water flow over a hemisphere/cylinder geometry and liquid carbon dioxide flow through a capillary nozzle

T2 - CRITICAL REVIEWS IN BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING
AB - The main goal of this computational study is to establish surgical guidelines for optimal geometries of carotid endarterectomy reconstructions that may measurably reduce postoperative complications, that is, thrombosis, stroke, and/or restenosis. The underlying hypotheses are that nonuniform hemodynamics, or "disturbed flows," are linked to arterial diseases and consequently that minimization of "disturbed flow" indicators leads to geometric bifurcation designs that lower postoperative complication rates. Considering transient 3-D laminar blood flow in partially occluded, in-plane, rigid-wall carotid artery bifurcations, the results presented include time-averaged indicators of "disturbed flow", such as the wall shear stress, spatial wall shear stress gradient, and wall shear stress angle deviation. In addition, trajectories and deposition patterns of critical blood particles (i.e., monocytes) are shown and evaluated. Within given physiological constraints, the vessel geometry was then changed in order to reduce the magnitudes of key indicators associated with thrombosis (i.e., blood clot formation) or restenosis (e.g., renewed atherosclerosis and/or hyperplasia). The quantitative results and knowledge base generated will be crucial for future clinical trials.

T2 - CRITICAL REVIEWS IN BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING
AB - For hemodialysis patients, arteriovenous grafts are omnipresent. Unfortunately, a large percentage of such grafts fail within the first year after surgery because of occlusive lesions mainly at the venous anastomotic site. It is textbook knowledge that critical values of certain hemodynamic parameters, such as low (oscillatory) wall shear stresses, large sustained wall shear stress gradients, significant changes in wall shear stress angles, excessive radial pressure gradients, etc., play significant roles in the onset and/or development of vascular diseases. The idea is to geometrically design graft-to-vein configurations such that aggravating flow patterns are reduced, and hence stenotic developments are minimized. Focusing on a new blood rheological model in conjunction with three graft-to-vein anastomotic configurations, that is, a base case, the Bard-IMPRA Venaflo graft, and a new graft-end design, the corresponding transient laminar 3-D hemodynamics are numerically simulated and compared. The design criterion for the best performance of these junction geometries is the most significant reduction in locally disturbed flow as expressed by equally weighted indicator functions for the onset and progression of stenotic developments. As a result of this comparison study, quantitative recommendations for arteriovenous loop graft designs toward increased patency rates are provided. The resulting improved graft design will be scrutinized in clinical trials.

TI - Three-dimensional Green's functions in anisotropic bimaterials
AU - Pan, E.
AU - Yuan, F. G.
T2 - International Journal of Solids and Structures
AB - In this paper, three-dimensional Green’s functions for anisotropic bimaterials are studied based on Stroh formalism and two-dimensional Fourier transforms. Although the Green’s functions can be expressed exactly in the Fourier transform domain, it is difficult to obtain the explicit expressions of the Green’s functions in the physical domain due to the general anisotropy of the material and a geometry plane involved. Utilizing Fourier inverse transform in the polar coordinate and combining with Mindlin’s superposition method, the physical-domain bimaterial Green’s functions are derived as a sum of a full-space Green’s function and a complementary part. While the full-space Green’s function is in an explicit form, the complementary part is expressed in terms of simple regular line-integrals over [0, 2π] that are suitable for standard numerical integration. Furthermore, the present bimaterial Green’s functions can be reduced to the special cases such as half-space, surface, interfacial, and full-space Green’s functions. Numerical examples are given for both half-space and bimaterial cases with isotropic, transversely isotropic, and anisotropic material properties to verify the applicability of the technique. For the half-space case with isotropic or transversely isotropic material properties, the Green’s function solutions are in excellent agreement with the existing analytical solutions. For anisotropic half-space and bimaterial cases, numerical results show the strong dependence of the Green’s functions on the material properties.

The conjugate gradient method of function estimation is used for the minimization procedure. Simulated temperature measurements are used in the inverse analysis for typical practical cases, in order to show that results more accurate than those available in the literature are obtained with the present solution approach. Actual experimental data are also used in the computations to estimate the surface heat flux.

TI - Boundary element analysis of three-dimensional cracks in anisotropic solids
AU - Pan, E
AU - Yuan, FG
T2 - INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL FOR NUMERICAL METHODS IN ENGINEERING
AB - This paper presents a boundary element analysis of linear elastic fracture mechanics in three-dimensional cracks of anisotropic solids. The method is a single-domain based, thus it can model the solids with multiple interacting cracks or damage. In addition, the method can apply the fracture analysis in both bounded and unbounded anisotropic media and the stress intensity factors (SIFs) can be deduced directly from the boundary element solutions.
The present boundary element formulation is based on a pair of boundary integral equations, namely, the displacement and traction boundary integral equations. While the former is collocated exclusively on the uncracked boundary, the latter is discretized only on one side of the crack surface. The displacement and/or traction are used as unknown variables on the uncracked boundary and the relative crack opening displacement (COD) (i.e. displacement discontinuity, or dislocation) is treated as a unknown quantity on the crack surface. This formulation possesses the advantages of both the traditional displacement boundary element method (BEM) and the displacement discontinuity (or dislocation) method, and thus eliminates the deficiency associated with the BEMs in modelling fracture behaviour of the solids. Special crack-front elements are introduced to capture the crack-tip behaviour. Numerical examples of stress intensity factors (SIFs) calculation are given for transversely isotropic orthotropic and anisotropic solids. For a penny-shaped or a square-shaped crack located in the plane of isotropy, the SIFs obtained with the present formulation are in very good agreement with existing closed-form solutions and numerical results. For the crack not aligned with the plane of isotropy or in an anisotropic solid under remote pure tension, mixed mode fracture behavior occurs due to the material anisotropy and SIFs strongly depend on material anisotropy.

T2 - IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON ULTRASONICS FERROELECTRICS AND FREQUENCY CONTROL
AB - An object transport system using low amplitude and high frequency progressive waves generated by two-mode excitation is presented. A theoretical model for the system was developed using normal mode expansion and the modal participation factor. To identify the factors that affect the transport speed, the changes with the mass of objects on the beam, the input power, the phase difference, and the excitation frequency were experimentally investigated. With a power input of 40 W, a transport speed of 10 cm/s was obtained for an object weighing 30 g. The tests indicate that, not only the phase difference but also the excitation frequency, were the dominant factors in determining the transport speed and direction. Specifically, when the excitation frequency was chosen to be at the exact midpoint of the two modes, the object stopped moving. A slight change of frequency in either direction resulted in change of object transport direction. For actual factory application, a simple stop-go and tracking control using the General Purpose Interface Bus (GPIB) were implemented.

T2 - INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF MACHINE TOOLS & MANUFACTURE
AB - Experiments of rotary diamond truing and dressing of vitreous bond grinding wheels were conducted to investigate the effects of feed, speed ratio, and overlap ratio on cylindrical grinding of zirconia. The applications of ceramic engine components with complex and precise form and the lack of technology for precision truing of diamond grinding wheels have driven the need to study the use of vitreous bond CBN and SiC wheels for form grinding of ceramics. Truing and grinding forces and the roundness and surface finish of ground zirconia parts were measured. By varying truing process parameters, a wide range of surface finish and roundness could be achieved. Experimental results showed that wheels trued at speed ratio below −1.0 could grind parts with fine surface finish and good roundness. The analysis of truing and grinding results showed the trend of increasing grinding force at higher specific truing energy and better surface finish at higher grinding force. The lack of speed control of the direct–drive, variable–speed truing spindle was observed and its effect on the reverse of direction of truing force at positive speed ratios was studied.

AB - Abstract High-speed (up to 127 m/s) and high material removal rate grinding experiments were conducted using a vitreous bond cubic boron nitride (CBN) wheel to investigate the effects of material removal rate, wheel speed, dwell time and truing speed ratio on cylindrical grinding of silicon nitride and zirconia. Experimental results show that operating the grinding wheel at a high surface speed can reduce grinding forces, enable high material removal rates, and achieve a higher grinding ratio (G-ratio). The material removal rate was increased to 9.6 and 7.6 mm3/s/mm for zirconia and silicon nitride, respectively, to explore the advantage of using high wheel speeds for cost-effective, high-material-removal-rate grinding of ceramics. Models for specific grinding force vs. the specific material removal rate and G-ratio vs. grinding wheel surface speed were developed based on the experimental results. Overall, this study showed that high grinding wheel surface speed is beneficial to the grinding of ceramics.

T2 - Journal of Engineering Mechanics
AB - A wavelet-based approach is proposed for structural damage detection and health monitoring. Characteristics of representative vibration signals under the wavelet transformation are examined. The methodology is then applied to simulation data generated from a simple structural model subjected to a harmonic excitation. The model consists of multiple breakable springs, some of which may suffer irreversible damage when the response exceeds a threshold value or the number of cycles of motion is accumulated beyond their fatigue life. In cases of either abrupt or accumulative damages, occurrence of damage and the moment when it occurs can be clearly determined in the details of the wavelet decomposition of these data. Similar results are observed for the real acceleration data of the seismic response recorded on the roof of a building during the 1971 San Fernando earthquake. Effects of noise intensity and damage severity are investigated and presented by a detectability map. Results show the great promise of the wavelet approach for damage detection and structural health monitoring.

AB - A new dynamic adaptive grid algorithm has been developed for use in air-quality modeling. This algorithm uses a higher order numerical scheme—the piecewise parabolic method (PPM)—for computing advective solution fields, a weight function capable of promoting grid node clustering by moving grid nodes, and a conservative interpolation equation using PPM for redistributing the solution field after movement of grid nodes. Applications of the algorithm to model problems show that the algorithm provides solutions more accurate than those obtained with static grids. Performance achieved in model problem simulations indicates that the algorithm has the potential to provide accurate air-quality modeling solutions at costs that may be significantly less than those incurred in obtaining equivalent static grid solutions.

The model is first incorporated into CFL3D and then used to calculate flows for two angles of attack, 8 and 19 deg, at a freestream Mach number of 0.2 and a Reynolds number of 9 x 10 6 . In general, good agreement is indicated for predicting transition onset and velocity profiles over sections of the main airfoil and flap. Most of the differences between computation and experiment are in the prediction of the extent and penetration of the slat wake at the 19-deg angle-of-attack case. Even for this case relative differences were less than 5%

In particular, the design of a self-tuning PID learning-based optimum controller is introduced which can be applied to nonlinear as well as linear systems. A recursive adaptation scheme is employed for on-line implementation of the self-tuning PID controller in which an exponential forgetting factor is used to weigh old data and both an error and control rate cost are used in the backwards pass. Results show that the method is a viable approach for tuning the parameters of a PID controller.

However, in some cases, these functions do not give sufficient information about alternatives. In this paper, we provide new functions to measure the degree of accuracy in the grades of membership of each alternative with respect to a set of criteria represented by vague values.

TI - Kinked crack in anisotropic bodies
AU - Yang, S

T2 - INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF SOLIDS AND STRUCTURES
AB - Solutions are presented for a crack kinking out of the crack plane in a generally anisotropic elastic body under two-dimensional deformation. Based on Stroh formalism, a system of singular integral equations governing the kinking crack with small kink length is given in a simple, straightforward form. The explicit expressions of the stress intensity factors, T-stresses, and energy release rates at the kinked crack tip are presented in terms of some nondimensional coefficients together with the stress intensity factors, T-stresses, and the coefficients of the third term acting on the main crack tip prior to crack kinking. The nondimensional coefficients depend on kink angle and material constants, but not on kink length. The energy release rate ratio which may characterize the competition along different crack growth directions is provided. The role of T-stresses and the third-term applied at the main crack field are determined which can be significant in the kinking and the stability of the kinked crack. Based on the energy release rate fracture criterion, the stability condition of the kinked crack is derived. The influences of anisotropy and loading mixity on the implications of crack kinking behavior is also given. The results for monoclinic materials with symmetry plane at x3=0 are derived from general results. Numerical results for the stress intensity factors, T-stresses at the kinked acrack tip and the energy release rate ratio for some special cases are provided. The dimensionless coefficients for crack kinking of orthotropic materials at the right angle to the main crack plane are tabulated.

AB - Abstract The effects of variation (in the transverse direction) of permeability and thermal conductivity, on fully developed forced convection in a parallel plate channel or circular duct filled with a saturated porous medium, is investigated analytically on the basis of a Darcy or Dupuit–Forchheimer model. It is shown that the Dupuit–Forchheimer problem reduces to the Darcy problem with a changed permeability variation. The cases of isoflux and isothermal boundaries are treated in turn. The bulk of the results pertain to a two-step variation, but the case of a weak continuous variation is also considered. The results for the parallel plate geometry and for the circular duct geometry are qualitatively similar. The replacement of isoflux boundaries by isothermal boundaries leads to a reduction of Nusselt number but otherwise there is little change in the pattern. The results demonstrate that the effect of permeability variation is that an above average permeability near the walls leads to an increase in Nusselt number, and this is explained in terms of variation in the curvature of the temperature profile. The effect of conductivity variation is more complex; there are two opposing effects and the Nusselt number is not always a monotonic function of the conductivity variation.

AB - Deposition patterns and efficiencies of a dilute suspension of inhaled particles in three-dimensional double bifurcating airway models for both in-plane and 90 deg out-of-plane configurations have been numerically simulated assuming steady, laminar, constant-property air flow with symmetry about the first bifurcation. Particle diameters of 3, 5, and 7 μm were used in the simulation, while the inlet Stokes and Reynolds numbers varied from 0.037 to 0.23 and 500 to 2000, respectively. Comparisons between these results and experimental data based on the same geometric configuration showed good agreement. The overall trend of the particle deposition efficiency, i.e., an exponential increase with Stokes number, was somewhat similar for all bifurcations. However, the deposition efficiency of the first bifurcation was always larger than that of the second bifurcation, while in general the particle efficiency of the out-of-plane configuration was larger than that of the in-plane configuration. The local deposition patterns consistently showed that the majority of the deposition occurred in the carinal region. The distribution pattern in the first bifurcation for both configurations were symmetric about the carina, which was a direct result of the uniaxial flow at the inlet. The deposition patterns about the second carina showed increased asymmetry due to highly nonuniform flow generated by the first bifurcation and were extremely sensitive to bifurcation orientation. Based on the deposition variations between bifurcation levels and orientations, the use of single bifurcation models was determined to be inadequate to resolve the complex fluid–particle interactions that occur in multigenerational airways.
