1. Fracture mechanics-based life prediction of a riveted lap joint

A. R. Shahani; H. Moayeri Kashani

Volume 4, Issue 1 , Summer and Autumn 2014, Pages 1-17

http://dx.doi.org/10.22061/jcarme.2014.69

Abstract
  In this paper, three-dimensional modeling of the fatigue crack growth profiles was performed in a simple riveted lap joint. Simulation results showed that mode I was dominated on the one side of the plates and the crack straightly grew on this side, while the other side of the plates was in a mixed-mode ...  Read More

3. A numerical and experimental study on buckling and post-buckling of cracked plates under axial compression load

M. Shariati; A. M. Majd Sabeti; H. Gharooni

Volume 4, Issue 1 , Summer and Autumn 2014, Pages 43-54

http://dx.doi.org/10.22061/jcarme.2014.71

Abstract
  Existence of cracks in industrial structures is one of the important causes of their failure, especially when they are subjected to important axial compressive forces that might lead to buckling. Therefore, it must be considered in stress analysis and designing and loading of such structures. In this ...  Read More

Volume 4, Issue 1 , Summer and Autumn 2014, Pages 55-65

http://dx.doi.org/10.22061/jcarme.2014.72

Abstract
  In this paper, nonlinear equations of motion for laminated composite rectangular plates based on the first order shear deformation theory were derived. Using a perturbation method, the nonlinear equation of motion was solved and analytical relations were obtained for natural and nonlinear frequencies. ...  Read More

6. Dissimilar friction stir lap welding of Al-Mg to CuZn34: Application of grey relational analysis for optimizing process parameters

Saman Khalilpourazary; Reza Abdi Behnagh; Ramezanali Mahdavinejad; Nasib Payam

Volume 4, Issue 1 , Summer and Autumn 2014, Pages 81-88

http://dx.doi.org/10.22061/jcarme.2014.74

Abstract
  This study focused on the optimization of Al—Mg to CuZn34 friction stir lap welding (FSLW) process for optimal combination of rotational and traverse speeds in order to yield favorable fracture load using Grey relational analysis (GRA). First, the degree of freedom was calculated for the system. ...  Read More

7. Applying a full implicit finite-difference method in jet impingement heat transfer studies

M. Rahimi; M. Mortazaei

Volume 4, Issue 1 , Summer and Autumn 2014, Pages 89-99

http://dx.doi.org/10.22061/jcarme.2014.75

Abstract
  Jet impingement heat transfer is an effective and practical approach that is employed in many industrial processes where heating, cooling, or drying is required. Details of the heat or mass transfer rate have been investigated both experimentally and numerically and can be found in the published literature. ...  Read More
