Gu Guoqing, Hui Pakming, Wang Binghong, Dai Shiqiang
1998, 19(9): 752-772.
Abstract(1863) PDF(749)
Cellular automaton traffic models can include various facotrs in traffic systems and the corresponding computational simulations are rather simple and effective.The Biham-MiddletonLevine model (BML model) facilitates the simulation of two-dimensional traffic flow problems via the cellular automaton models.In this paper,the BML model is improved by removing its limitation of synchronized change of traffic lights.In the new model,the traffic light at each crossing could arbitrarily change its starting time and tempo of variation,and hence the model could more realistically describe the influence of traffic lights on the performance of traffic systems.Some new effects appearing in the new model are also elucidated.

Abstract(1677) PDF(522)
The purpose of this paper is to introduce and study the semi-groups of nonlinear contractions in probabilistic normed spaces and to establish the Crandall-Liggett's exponential formula for some kind of accretive mappings in probabilistic normed spaces.As applications,these results are utilized to study the Cauchy problem for a kind of differential inclusions with accretive mappings in probabilistic normed spaces.

Connections and Geodesic Characteristic of Equations of Motion for Constrained Mechanical Systems
Luo Shaokai, Guo Yongxin, Mei Fengxiang
1998, 19(9): 779-783.
Abstract(1933) PDF(788)
The geodesic characteristic of equations of motion for nonautonomous constrained mechanical systems is studied in the modern setting of global differential geometry.A necessary and sufficient condition for the dynamical flow of nonautonomous mechanical system with geodesic characteristic was obtained with respect to a connection on 1-jet bundle.The dynamical flow concerning the non-autonomous case was always of geocesic characteristic with regard to torsionfree connections.Thus the motion of any nonautonomous mechanical system with constraints can be always represented by the motion along the geodesic line of torsion-connection on 1-jet bundle,which is different from the case in an autonomous mechaincal system.

Abstract(1731) PDF(601)
The parallel-plate flow chamber (PPFC),of which the height is far smaller than its own length and width,is one of the main apparatus for the in vitro study of the mechanical behaviors of cultured cells at the bottom of PPFC undergoing shear stress.The PPFC of which the upper and lower plates are rectangular is usually used by research workers,and the flow field in this kind of PPFC (except for the regions near the entrance and exit) is uniform[1],so only the effect the shear stress with one value has on cultured cells can be observed during each experiment.A kind of PPFC of which the upper and lower plates are not rectangular is proposed in this paper.The distributions of the velocities inside and the shear stresses at the bottom of the chamber are given by analyzing the flow field of the steady flow in the PPFC.The results show that the mechanical behaviors of cultured cells undergoing the shear stresses with various values may be simultaneously observed by the use of this kind of irrectangular PPFC.The theoretical and experimental results obtained by the use of Ultrasonic Doppler show good agreement.

Le Jiachun
1998, 19(9): 799-804.
Abstract(1921) PDF(1085)
In this paper,the disturbaces to a uniformly rotating idealfluid,with a sphere moving steadily along the axis of rotation are analysed by using linearization theory,the equations of disturbance pressure and distur bance stream function governing the stability of motion are derived based on the assumption that the flow is rotational symmetric.The equation of distur bance stream function is analysed with the method of normal modes,and the constraints on wave number and wave velocity of the nontrivial neutral disturbances are established and the exact expression of the neutral distur bances are obtained.The conclusion is drawn that there are three kinds of possible forms of ne utral disturblances.
Differential Geometrical Method in Elastic Composite with Imperfect Interfaces
Tong Jinzhang, Guan Lingyun, Zhang Qingjie
1998, 19(9): 805-814.
Abstract(1761) PDF(572)
A differential geonmetrical method is for the first time used to calculate the effective moduli of a two-plaste elastic composite materials with imperfect interface which the inclusions are assumed to be ellipsoidal of revolutions.All of the interface integral items participating in forming the potential and complementary energy functionals of the composite materials are expressed in terms of intrinsic quantities of the ellipsoidal of revolutions.Based on this,the upper and the lower bound for the effective elastic moduli of the composite materials with inclusions described above have been derived.Under three limiting conditions of sphere,disk and needle shaped inclusions,the results of this paper will return to the bounds obtained by Hashin[6] (1992).

Abstract(2191) PDF(643)
A new technique for solving large deflection problem of circular plates flexural non-axisy mmetrically is proposed in this paper.The large deflection problem of a circular plate with built-in edge under non-axisymmetrical load is taken as an example to clarify the principle and proce dure of the technique mentioned here.The technique given here can also be used to solve large deflection problem of circular plates under other non-axisy mmetrical loads and boundary conditions.
