Polymer nanocomposites characterization by a stochastic finite elements representation
This dissertation introduces a new multiscale stochastic finite element method (MSFEM) for determining the mechanical properties of polymer nanocomposites (PNC) consisting of polymers reinforced with single-wall carbon ...
Deterministic and random analysis of systems with hysteresis using the Preisach formalism
The hysteretic behavior of single-degree-of-freedom systems subjected to external loads is examined using the classical Preisach model. Two cases are considered. First, the response of an oscillator having a non-linear ...
