    Implementing an accurate generalized gaussian quadrature solution to find the elastic field in a homogeneous anisotropic media

    , Article Journal of the Serbian Society for Computational Mechanics ; Volume 11, Issue 1 , 2017 , Pages 11-19 ; 18206530 (ISSN) Kabir, H ; Matikolaei, S. A. H. H ; Sharif University of Technology
    In the current study, the elastic field in an anisotropic elastic media is determined by implementing a general semi-analytical method. In this specific methodology, the displacement field is computed as a sum of finite functions with unknown coefficients. These aforementioned functions exactly satisfy both the homogeneous and inhomogeneous boundary conditions in the proposed media. It is worth mentioning that the unknown coefficients are determined by implementing the principle of minimum potential energy. The numerical integration is done by employing the Generalized Gaussian Quadrature rule. Furthermore, and with the aid of the calculated unknown coefficients, the displacement fields as... 

    Nanoscale vibrational analysis of a multi-layered graphene sheet embedded in an elastic medium

    , Article Composites Science and Technology ; Volume 65, Issue 7-8 , 2005 , Pages 1159-1164 ; 02663538 (ISSN) Behfar, K ; Naghdabadi, R ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this paper, nanoscale vibrational analysis of a multi-layered graphene sheet embedded in an elastic medium is investigated and the corresponding natural frequencies and the associated modes are determined. The modeling is based on the fact that the elastic moduli of a graphene sheet in two perpendicular orientations are different, so the plate is considered to be anisotropic. The graphene layers stacking at the top of each other bond with carbon-carbon van der Waals forces between two adjacent ones. Also, the whole multi-layered graphene sheet is influenced by polymer-carbon van der Waals forces from the surrounding elastic medium. © 2005 Elsevier Ltd. Al rights reserved  

    Innovative Theories of Micro and Nano Ellipsoidal Inclusion and Inhomogeneity in Magneto-electro-elastic Media with General Anisotropy

    , Ph.D. Dissertation Sharif University of Technology Rashidinejad, Ehsan (Author) ; Mohammadi Shodja, Hossein (Supervisor)
    In the current work, the two- and three-dimensional electro-elastic fields of periodically as well as arbitrarily distributed interacting quantum wires (QWRs) and interacting quantum dots (QDs) of arbitrary shapes within a piezoelectric matrix are studied analytically. The lattice mismatch between the QWR/QD and the barrier is accounted through prescribing an initial misfit strain field within the QWR/QD. The distinction between the electro-mechanical properties of the QWR/QD and those of the barrier is treated by introducing a novel electro-mechanical equivalent inclusion method in Fourier space (FEMEIM). Moreover, the theory can readily treat cases where the QWRs/QDs are multi-phase or... 

    Micropolar hypo-elasticity

    , Article Archive of Applied Mechanics ; Volume 80, Issue 12 , December , 2010 , Pages 1449-1461 ; 09391533 (ISSN) Ramezani, S ; Naghdabadi, R ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this paper, the concept of hypo-elasticity is generalized to the micropolar continuum theory, and the general forms of the constitutive equations of the micropolar hypo-elastic materials are presented. A new co-rotational objective rate whose spin is the micropolar gyration tensor is introduced which describes the deformation of the material in view of an observer attached to the micro-structure. As special case, simplified versions of the proposed constitutive equations are given in which the same fourth-order elasticity tensors are used as in the micropolar linear elasticity. A 2-D finite element formulation for large elastic deformation of micropolar hypo-elastic media based on the...
