A probabilistic model for fatigue damage accumulation in composite laminates
A stochastic model for the accumulation of fatigue damage in composite laminates is proposed. The model considers the accumulation of fatigue damage as an evolutionary stochastic process and attempts to predict the ...
A parametric study of sulfuric acid anodized 5657 aluminum alloy coatings for thermal control applications
The optical response of sulfuric acid anodized 5657 aluminum alloy coatings was determined to be greatly dependent upon trace and alloying element concentration. An improved method for WDS analysis of anodized coatings was ...
Micromechanical modeling of elastic-plastic porous materials using finite element analysis
Elastic-plastic behavior of porous materials is analyzed using a hollow sphere micromodel and the NIKE2D finite element program. Surface average responses are computed for several displacement controlled homogeneous loadings. ...
Evaluation of superelastic nitinol as a shielding material for hypervelocity impact
Superelastic Nitinol Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) as a shielding material for hypervelocity impact is investigated. Impact peak pressures from Rankine-Hugoniot equations and empirical figures of merit, which give a general ...
