Viscous damping effect on the aeroelastic stability of subsonic wings: Introduction of the U–K method, Article Journal of Fluids and Structures ; Volume 73 , 2017 , Pages 1-15 ; 08899746 (ISSN) ; Dehghani Firouz Abadi, R ; Rahmanian, M ; Sharif University of Technology
This study aims at introduction of a novel method for evaluating the effect of viscous damping on the aeroelastic stability boundaries. The K-method is well-known for being one of the fastest methods in determining the instability conditions (i.e. critical speed and its corresponding frequency). However, formulation of the K-method is developed for aeroelastic systems without viscous damping and solution is valid where the introduced artificial damping is zero. Taking into account the framework of the K-method in general, this study has tried to remove the major shortcoming of the K-method, i.e. investigation of the effect of viscous damping on the aeroelastic stability boundaries. The...

The main drawback of the method proposed by Marciniak and Kuczynski for prediction of the limit strains in sheet metal forming processes is requirement of an experimental point of the forming limit curve (FLC) in order to calibrate the curve. The purpose of this work is to introduce a new method to calibrate the FLC using the M-K model in which no experimental data is needed. To achieve this goal, many experimental FLCs were collected from the literature and the values of the initial inhomogeneity factors were determined for them with trial and error aproach. Using these data, an empirical law was developed to predict the value of inhomogeneity factor. The resultant curves show good...
An analytical approach in prediction of necking and suitable load path in tube hydroforming by using the strain gradient, Article SAE Technical Papers, 20 April 2009 through 20 April 2009, Detroit, MI ; 2009 ; Masoumi, E ; Safikhani, A. R ; Hashemi, R ; Abrinia, K ; Sharif University of Technology
A theoretical forming limit stress diagram (FLSD) for necking prediction which is based on the strain gradient theory of plasticity in conjunction with the M-K approach was represented and used in tube hydroforming. This approach introduces an internal length scale into conventional constitutive equations and takes into account the effects of deformation inhomogeneity and material softening. The nonlinear second order ordinary differential equation of the thickness of tube has been solved by collocation method. It has been shown that this method overcomes the imperfection sensitivity encountered in the conventional M-K method. The predicted FLSD has been compared with published experimental...

The forming limit stress diagram (FLSD) has been reported as being much less path dependent and much more favourable than the forming limit diagram (FLD) in representing forming limits in the numerical simulation of sheet metal forming processes. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to develop a methodology for the prediction of the forming limits both in strain and stress forms. All simulations are based on strain gradient theory of plasticity in conjunction with the Marciniak-Kuczynski (M-K) approach. This approach introduces an internal length scale into conventional constitutive equations and takes into account the effects of deformation inhomogeneity and material softening. The...
