Some Analytic And Finite Element Solutions Of The Graphene Euler Beam, Dongming Wei Feb 2014

Some Analytic And Finite Element Solutions Of The Graphene Euler Beam, Dongming Wei

Dongming Wei

In this work, we present some novel analytic and finite elements solutions to the steady-state Euler beam equation subject to certain loads and boundary conditions. The finite element solutions are shown to be in good agreement with the analytic solutions. Error bound and stability of the finite element scheme are proved.

Impact Damage On A Thin Glass Plate With A Thin Polycarbonate Backing, Wenke Hu, Yenan Wang, Jian Yu, Chian-Fong Yen, Florin Bobaru

Florin Bobaru Ph.D.

We present experimental and computational results for the impact of a spherical projectile on a thin glass plate with a thin polycarbonate backing plate, restrained in a metal frame, or in the absence of the frame. We analyze the dependence of the damage patterns in the glass plate on the increasing impact velocities, from 61 m/s to 200 m/s. Experimental results are compared with those from peridynamic simulations of a simplified model. The main fracture patterns observed experimentally are captured by the peridynamic model for each of the three projectile velocities tested. More accurate implementation of the actual ...
