Frictional receding contact problem for a graded bilayer system indented by a rigid punch
(Elsevier Ltd, 2018-04-03)
The frictional receding contact problem for two graded layers pressed by a rigid punch is considered in this paper. The punch is subjected to both normal and tangential loads thereby resulting in frictional contact with ...
Foam filling options for crashworthiness optimization of thin-walled multi-tubular circular columns
(Elsevier Ltd., 2018-07-17)
There is an increasing trend in using aluminum foam-filled columns in crash management systems due to theirlight weight in automotive industry. The main goal of this study is to optimize the crashworthiness of aluminumfoam-filled ...
The sliding contact problem for an orthotropic coating bonded to an isotropic substrate
(Elsevier Ltd., 2018-02-24)
We consider the sliding contact problem of an orthotropic coating/substrate system. The coating/substrate system is pressed by a rigid flat or cylindrical stamp. For the orthotropic coating, the principal material directions ...
