Abstract(2429) PDF(890)
A new numerical method for the liactional integral that only stores part history data is preseated, and its discretization error is estimated.The method can be used to solve the integno-diffemntial equation including fiactional integral or fractional derivative in a long history.The difficulty of storing all history data is overcoane and the error can be controlled. As application, motion equations goverring the dynandcal behavior of a viscoelastic Timoshenko beam with fractional derivative constitutiverelation are gniven.The dynamical response of the beam subjected to a periodic excitation is studied by using the separation variables metiwd. Then the new numerical method is used to solve a class of wealdy singular Voltena integro-differential equations which are applied to descaibe the dynamical behavior of viscoelastic beams with fractional derivative constitutive relations. The analytical and unmeiical results are compared.It is foiurd that they are very close.

Abstract(1995) PDF(575)
A model was developed to understand the aggregation process of the particles in electrorheological(ER) fluids under the action of an applied electric field. By establishing a generalized virtual work principle based on the consideration that the released electromagnetic energy accompatlying the growth of the chain should equal to the dissipated energy related with friction resistance of the coos fluid in the chain formation, the governing differential equation of the chain growth was established.Based on this energy model,the velocity of the chain forming,and the response time of ER fluid can be predicted. The present model can also predict the effect of the temperature and some microshvctural parameters, such as the dielectric constants and concentration of the particles, etc.,on the response of an ER system.

Abstract(1939) PDF(484)
For the two-parameter family of planar mapping, a method to stabilize an unstable fixed point without stable manifold embedding in hypetvhaos is introduced.

Postbuckling of Pressure-Loaded Shear Deformable Laminated Cylindrical Panels
SHEN Hui-shen
2003, 24(4): 357-366.
Abstract(2201) PDF(604)
A postbuckling analysis is presented for a shear deformable laminated cylindrical panel of finite length subjected to lateral pressure. The governing equations are based on Reddy's higher order shear deformation shell theory with von Kármán-Donnell-type of kinematic nonlinearity.The nonlinear prebuckling deformations and initial geometric imperfections of the panel are both taken into account. A boundary layer theory of shell buckling,which includes the effects of nonlinear prebuckling deformstions, large deflections in the postbuckling range, and initial geometric imperfections of the shell, is extended to the case of shear deformable laminated cylindrical panels under lateral pressure.A singular perturbation technique is employed to determine the buckling loads and postbuckling equilibrium paths. The numerical illusttations concern the postbuckling response of perfect and imperfect, moderately thick, cross-ply laminated cylindrical panels. The effects played by transverse shear deformation,panel geometric parameters, total number of plies, fiber orientation, and initial geometric imperfections are studied.
Nonlinear Bending of Corrugated Diaphragm With Large Boundary Corrugation Under Compound Load
YUAN Hong, LIU Ren-huai
2003, 24(4): 367-372.
Abstract(1965) PDF(651)
By using the simplified Reissner's equation of axisymmetric shells of revolution, the nonlinear bending of a corrugated annular plate with a large boundary corrugation and a non-deformable rigid body at the center under compound load are investigated. The nonlinear boundary value problem of the comigated diaphragm reduces to the nonlinear integral equations by applying the method of Green's function. To solve the integral equations, a so-called interpolated parameter important to prevent divergence is introduced into the iterative format. Computation shows that when loads are small, any, value of interpolated parameter can assure the convergence of iteration. Interpolated parameter equal or almost equal to 1 yields a faster convergence rate; when loads are large,interpolated parameter cannot be taken too large in order to assure convergence. The characteristic curves of the comugated diaphragm for different load combinations are given. The obtained characteristic curves are available for reference to design. It can be concluded that the deflection is larger when the diaphragm is acted by both uniform load and concentrated load than when it is acted only by uniform load. The solution method can be applied to corrugated shells of arbitrary diametral sections.
Research for the Strain Energy Release Rate of Complex Cracks by Using Point-by-Point Closed Extrapolation Approach
GUO Mao-lin, MENG Qing-yuan, WANG Biao
2003, 24(4): 373-377.
Abstract(2223) PDF(502)
A new extrapolation approach was proposed to calculate the strain energy release rates of complex cracks. The point-by-point closed method was used to calculate the closed energy, thus the disadvantage of self-inconsistency in some published papers can be avoided.The disadvantage is that the closed energy is repeatedly calculated: when closed nodal number along radial direction is more than two,the displacement of nodes behind the crack tip that is multiplied by nodal forces,the closed energy has been calculated and the crack surfaces have been closed, and that closed energy of middle point is calculated repeatedly.A DCB(double cantilever beam) specimen was calculated and compared with other theoretical results,it is shown that a better coincidence is obtained.In addition the same resalts are also obtained for compact tension specimen, three point bend specimen and single edge cracked specimen.ln comparison with theoretical results,the error can be limited within 1 per cent.This method can be extended to analyze the fiacture of composite laminates with various delamination cracks.

JIAO Gui-de, WANG Yin-bang
2003, 24(4): 378-384.
Abstract(1955) PDF(527)
The interaction between an elastic triangular inclusion and a crack is investigated. The problem is formulated using the boundary integral equations for traction boundary value problems derived by Chau and Wang as basic equations. By using the continuity condition of traction and displacement on interface as supplement equations, a set of equations for solving the interaction problem between an inclusion and a crack are obtained, which are solved by using a new boundary element method.The results in terms of stress intensity factors(SIFs) are caiculated for a variety of crack-inclusion arrangements and the elastic constants of the matrix and the inclusion. The results are valuable for studying new composite materials.

Abstract(2445) PDF(521)
Chaotic attitude motion of a magnetic rigid spacecraft in a circular orbit of the earth is treated.The dynamical model of the problem was derived from the law of moment of momentum.The Melnikov analysis was carried out to prove the e}dstence of a complicated nonwandering Cantor set.The dynamical behaviors were numerically investigated by means of time history, Poincare map, power spectrum and Liapunov exponents.Numerical simulations indicate that the onset of chaos is characterized by break of torus as the increase of the tongue of the magnetic forces.

2003, 24(4): 398-404.
Abstract(2086) PDF(725)
A procedure for identifying the dynamic parameter of offshore platform is presented. The present procedure consists of two key features.Fist uses random decrement (RD) technology to extract free vlbration signal in strong noise environment in which it may not white noise. Second technology which called autoregressive moving average (ARMA) is used to model the data treated by the random decrement method.In order to get rid of the color noise in the output signal response from the offshore platform an imaginary system is added in RD system and make the course of extracting performed under the state of color input by choosing the breakover condition and lead time. For elintinating multi-values of parameters identified, an updating moving average method is used. The dynamic parameters of structure under arbitrary input are identigied.Example of the method as applied to a scale-model offshore platform is used to evaluate the technology of efffciency and the value of on-line.

A form invariance of the relativistic Birlchoffian system is studied,and the conserved quantities of the system are obtained. Under the infinitesimal transformation of groups, the definition and criteria of the form invariance of the system were given.
