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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
