Abstract(2463) PDF(582)
A nonlinear model for piezoelastic laminated plates containing the damage effect of the intra-layers and inter-laminar interface is presented, and the discontinuity of displacement and electric potential on the interfaces were depicted by three shape functions. By using the Hamilton variation principle, the three-dimensional nonlinear dynamic equations of piezoelastic laminated plates with damage effect were derived. Then, using the Galerlan method, a mathematical solution was presented. In numerical results, the effects of different damage models, the thickness of piezoelectric layer, the side-to-thiclmess ratio and the length-to-width ratio and the natural frequencies and non-linear amplitude-frequency response characteristics of the simply-suppotted piezoelastic laminated plates with interfacial imperfections were discussed.

Abstract(2672) PDF(1148)
Three dimensional large eddy simulation (LES) was performed in the investigation of stably stratified turbulence with a sharp thermal interface. Main results are focused on the turbulent characteristic scale, statistical properties, transport properties, and temporal and spatial evolution of the scalar field. Results show that the buoyancy scale increases first, and then goes to a certain constant value. The stronger the mean shear, the larger the buoyancy scale. The overturning scale increases with the flow, and the mean shear improves the overturning scale. The flatness factor of temperature departs from the Gaussian distribution in a fairly large region, and its statistical properties are clearly different from those of the veloaty fluctuations in a strong stratified case. Turbulent mixing starts from small scale motions, and then extends to large scale motions.
Mechanism of Unsteady Aerodynamic Heating With a Sudden Change in Surface Temperature
2009, 30(2): 160-170.
Abstract(3124) PDF(797)
The chazacteiistics and mechanism of the unsteady aerodynamic heating of a transient hypersonic borurdary layer caused by sudden change in surface temperature was studied, the complete time history of wall heat flax was presented by both analytical and numerical approaches. With analytical methods, the unsteady compressible boundary layer equation was solved. In the neighborhoods of initial and final steady state, the transient response can be expressed by a steady-state solution plus a perturbation series, respectively.By patching these two solutions, the complete solution in the elrtire time domain wag achieved. In the region where the assumptions of analytical approach are satisfied, the numerical and analytical results were matched well, proving the reliability of the methods. The result showed two distinct features of the unsteady response. In the short period just after a sudden increase in the wall temperature, the direction of the wall heat flux reverted, a new inflexion near the wall arose in the profile of the thermal boundary layer, which is a typical unsteady characteristic. However, these unsteady responses only exist in a very short period in hypersonic flows, which means that, in a long-term aerodynamic heating process concidering only rinsready surface temperature, the unsteady characteristics of the flow can be ignored and the traditional quasi-steady aerodynamic heating prediction methods are still valid.

Abstract(2493) PDF(633)
Singular pertubation reaction-diffusion problem with Dirichlet boundary condition is considered. this is a multi-scale problem. The presence of small parameter leads to bomdary Dyer phenomena on both sides of region. Non-equidistant finite difference method wag presented according to the property of boundary layer. The region was divided into the inner botmdary layer region and the outside botutdaty layer regiart according to transition point of Shishkin. The step length is equidistant on the outside bowdaty layer region. The step length is gradually increased on the inner boiutdacy layer region such that half of the step length is digerent firm each other. Tnutcation error was estimated. The new method is stable and uniform convergence with order higher than 2. Finally, numerical results were given, which are in agreement with the theoretical result.
Explicit Formulations and Performance Study of LSFD Method on Cartesian Mesh
CAI Qing-dong
2009, 30(2): 179-191.
Abstract(2299) PDF(539)
The performance of the ISFD (least square-based flute difference) method is compared with the conventional FD(fiute difference) schemes. For the approximation of the first and second order derivatives by the conventional central difference schemes, 9-point stencils for the 2D case and 27-point stencils for the 3D case are usually used. When the same stencils are used, the explicit ISFD formulations for apprrntimation of the fist and second order derivatives were present. the ISFD formutations are actually the combination of conventional central difference schemes along relevant mesh lines. It is found that ISFD formulations need much less iteration steps than the conventional FD schemes to get the converged solution, and the ratio of mesh spacing in the x and y directions is an important parameter in the ISFD application, which has a great effect on the stability of ISFD computation.

Abstract(2519) PDF(678)
A new spontaneous potential log model for the case when formation resistivity is not piecewise constant was introduced. The spontaneous potential satisfies an elliptic boundary value problem with jump conditions on interfaces. It was proved that the elliptic interface problem has a unique weak solution. lluthemwre, a jump ooaidition capturing finite difference scheme was proposed and applied to solve such elliptic problems. The validity and effectiveness of the proposed method were demonstrated through numerical examples.

Abstract(2686) PDF(486)
The generalized theory of thermo-elastiaty, r.e., Green and Naghdi (G-N)Ⅲ theory, with energy dissipation(TEWED) is employed in the study of time-harmonic plane wave prpagation in an unbounded, perfectly electxiically conducting elastic medium subject to primary uniform magnetic field. A more general dispersion equation with complex coefficients was obtained for coupled magneto-themlo-elastic wave which is solved in complex domain by using Leguerre's method. It is revealed that the coupled magneto-themlo-elastic wave corresponds to modified dilatational and thermal wave propagation with finite speeds modified by finite thermal wave speeds, thermo-elastic coupling, thermal diffusivity and the external magnetic field. Numerical results for a copper-like material are presented.

Abstract(2325) PDF(554)
Based on the semi-analytical flutter derivatives of flexible structure provided by authors(XU Xu, CAO Zhi-yuan. Linear and nonlinear aerodynamic theory of interaction between flexible long structivre and wind, Applied Mathematical and Mechanics, 22(12):1299-1308.),the relationships of the flutter derivatives of slender bridge were investigated, and then their intrinsic relations were validated, by the test data of flutter derivatives of two bridges. The changing of flutter derivatives with the aerodynamic center, notation speed and angles variation were also researched by parametric method. The results not only prove the conectiress of expressions of flutter derivatives given by author, but also indicate that some certain relations exist in them. Tlutirermore, the semi-analytical flutter derivatives are showed to be applicable to the bridge with streamlined cross-section.

Abstract(2452) PDF(669)
An approximate method is presented for obtaining analytical solutions for the conditional fast passage piubability of systems under modulated white noise excitation, the method is based on VanMarcke's approximation, however, because the normalization of the response was introduced, the expected decay rates can be evaluated from the second-moment statistics instead of the correlation functions or spectrum density functions of the response of considered stnrcrures. Explicit solutions for the second-moment statistics of the response were given. The accuracy, efficiency and usage of the proposed method were demonstrated by the fast passage analysis of single-degree-of freedom (SDOF) linear systems under two special types of modulated white noise excitations.
