DAI Shi-qiang
2001, 22(3): 221-227.
Abstract(2857) PDF(777)
This paper elucidates the effectiveness of combining the Poincare-Lighthill-Kuo method(PLK method,for short) and symbolic computation.Firstly,the idea and hist ory of the PLK method are briefly introduced.Then,the difficulty of intermediate expression swell,often encountered in symbolic computation,is outlined.For overcoming the difficulty,a semi-inverse algorithm was proposed by the author,with which the lengthy parts of intermediate expressions are first frozen in the form of symbols till the final stage of seeking perturbation solutions.To discuss the applications of the above algorithm,the related work of the author and his research group on nonlinear oscillations and waves is concisely reviewed.The computer-extended perturbation solution of the Duffing equation shows that the asymptotic solution obtained with the PLK method possesses the convergence radius of 1 and thus the range of validity of the solution is considerably enlarged.The studies on internal solitary waves in stratified fluid and on the head-on collision between two solitary waves in a hyperelastic rod indicate that by means of the presented methods,very complicated manipulation,unconceivable in hand calculation,can be conducted and thus result in higher-order evolution equations and asymptotic solutions.The examples illustrate that the algorithm helps to realize the symbolic computation on micro-commputers.Finally,it is concluded that with the aid of symbolic computation,the vitality of the PLK method is greatly strengthened and at least for the solutions to conservative systems of oscillations and waves,it is a powerful tool.

Abstract(2193) PDF(785)
The influence of hygrothermal effects on the buckling and postbuckling of composite laminated cylindrical shells subjected to axial compression is investigated using a micro-to-macro-mechanical analytical model.The material properties of the composite are affected by the variation of temperature and moisture,and are based on a micromechanical model of a laminate.The governing equations are based on the classical laminated shell theory,and including hygrothermal effects.The nonlinear prebuckling deformations and initial geometric imperfections of the shell were both taken into account.A boundary layer theory of shell buckling was extended to the case of laminated cylindrical shells under hygrothermal environments,and a singular perturbation technique was employed to determine buckling loads and postbuckling equilibrium paths.The numerical illustrations concern the postbuckling behavior of perfect and imperfect,cross-ply laminated cylindrical shells under different sets of environmental conditions.The influences played by temperature rise,the degree of moisture concentration,fiber volume fraction,shell geometric parameter,total number of plies,stacking sequences and initial geometric imperfections are studied.

Abstract(2097) PDF(710)
The dynamic stability of simple supported viscoelastic column,subjected to a periodic axial force,is investigated.The viscoelastic material was assumed to obey the fractional derivative constitutive relation.The governing equation of motion was derived as a weakly singular Volterra integro- partial-differential equation,and it was simplified into a weakly singular Volterra integro-ordinary-di-f ferential equation by the Galerkin method.In terms of the averaging method,the dynamical stability was analyzed.A new numerical method is proposed to avoid storing all history data.Numerical examples are presented and the numerical results agree with the analytical ones.

Abstract(1991) PDF(496)
The evolution of the coherent structures in a two-dimensional time-developing mixing layer of the FENE-P fluids is examined numerically.By the means of an appropriate filtering for the polymer stress,some characteristics of the coherent structures at high b were obtained,which Azaiez and Homsy did not address.The results indicate that adding polymer to the Newtonian fluids wil cause stronger vorticity diffusion,accompanied with weaker fundamental and subharmonical perturbations and slower rotational motion of neighboring vortices during pairing.This effect decreases with the Weissenberg number,but increases with b.In addition,the time when the consecutive rollers are completely coalesced into one delays in the viscoelatic mixing layer compared with the Newtonian one of the same total viscosity.

The "trial function method"(TFM for short) and a routine way in finding traveling wave solutions to some nonlinear partial differential equations(PDE for short) wer explained.Two types of evolution equations are studied,one is a generalized Burgers or KdV equation,the other is the Fisher equation with special nonlinear forms of its reaction rate term.One can see that this method is simple,fast and allowing further extension.

Abstract(2196) PDF(760)
The prior estimate and decay property of positive solutions are derived for a system of quasilinear elliptic differential equations first.Hence,the result of nonexistence for differential equation system of radially nonincreasing positive solutions was implied.By using this nonexistence result,blow-up estimates for a class quasilinear reaction-diffusion systems(non-Newtonian filtration systems) are established,which extencds the result of semilinear reaction-diffusion(Fujita type) systems.
