Mechanics of an elastic solid reinforced with bidirectional fiber in finite plane elastostatics: complete analysisDownload
A continuum-based model is presented for the mechanics of bidirectional composites subjected to finite plane deformations. This is framed in the development of a constitutive relation within which the constraint of material incompressibility is augmented. The elastic resistance of the fibers is...
We experimentally investigate the behaviour of a line-source plume falling through a finite two-layer stratified ambient where the depth of the upper ambient layer increases in time. Laboratory observations suggest one of two possible flow regimes depending on the value of 𝜆 , which represents...
Numerous studies have considered the flow of a rectilinear, high Reynolds number, Boussinesq gravity current through a two-layer stratified ambient, however, far less is known concerning the analogue axisymmetric problem. Whereas in both instances there is the possibility of a dynamic coupling...
We examine the transient evolution of a negatively buoyant, laminar plume in an emptying filling box containing a uniform porous medium. In the long time limit, the box is partitioned into two uniform layers of different densities. However, the approach towards steady state is characterized by a...
We report upon experimental and analytical investigations of filling box flows in non-uniform porous media characterized by a sudden change in permeability. The porous medium consists of two layers separated by a horizontal permeability jump and is initially filled with light ambient fluid. A...
We present an analytical solution for buoyancy-driven “filling box” flows in axisymmetric porous media having closed bottom and side boundaries. The flow consists first and foremost of a descending, point source plume. When plume fluid reaches the (horizontal) bottom boundary, it begins to flow...
This paper is concerned with the network-theoretic properties of so-called k-nearest neighbor intelligent vehicular platoons, where each vehicle communicates with k vehicles, both in front and behind. The network-theoretic properties analyzed in this paper play major roles in quantifying the...
Finite plane deformations of elastic solids reinforced with fibers resistant to flexure: complete solutionDownload
A model for the deformation of an elastic solid reinforced by embedded fibers is presented in which elastic resistance of the fibers to bending is incorporated. Within the framework of strain-gradient elasticity, we formulated the equilibrium equations and necessary boundary conditions which...
