Influence of fibre content and impactor parameters on transverse impact response of uniaxially reinforced composite plates
(1995)The response of aligned fibrereinforced laminae to a transverse im[pact load, as in a drop weight impact test, is examined theoretically in terms of impact force produced and the impulse imparted to the plate. Teh impulse ... 
Lateral compression of a square or rectangular tube between two parallel narrow width indenters placed nonorthogonally
(1995)Collapse behavior of aluminum tubes of square and rectangular crosssections,when compressed between two identical narrow width indenters placed symmetrically in parallel alignment, is examined. Experiments were performed ... 
Lateral crushing of square and rectangular tubes by nonorthogonally placed naroow width indenters
(1995)A study of the collapse behaviour of square or rectangular tubes subjected to transverseloading by narrow width indenters, placed in orthogonal and nonorthogonal positions is presented.Experiments were conducted on ... 
Levytype piezothermoelastic solution for hybrid plate by using firstorder shear deformation theory
(1997)A Levytype solution is presented for hybrid rectangular plates, with two opposite edges simply supported, made of a crossply composite laminate with attached piezoelectric layers, and subjected to thermoelectromechanical ... 
Mathematical model for atmospheric dispersion in low winds with eddy diffusivities as linear functions of downwind distence
(Elsevier Sclerce, 1996)The dispersion modelling in tow wind speeds assumes importance because of the high frequency of occurrence and episodic nature of these poor diffusion conditions. A steadystate athematical model has been proposed for the ... 
Mechanisms of a kinematic chain and the degree of structural similarity based on the concept of linkpath code
(Elsevier Science, 1996)A new concept of linkpath code has been ntroduced for a link of a planar kinematic chain with simple joints. An algorithm has been developed for determining linkpath codes for all the links of a kinematic chain, leading ... 
A methodology for financial evaluation of biogas technology in india using functions
(Elsevier Science, 1996)methodology for financial evaluation of biogas technology for domestic use in India using recently developed cost functions is reported. Analytical expressions for the unit cost of biogas and cost per unit of useful energy ... 
Modelling of fracture process in annealed sheet of AISI 202 stainless steel
(Elsevier Science, 1996)Stainless steel is often used in rolled strips and sheets for many metal forming operations. The hot and cold rolled sheets are subjected to annealing treatment to relieve the internal stress and eliminate any anisotropy ... 
Numerical modelling of coastal upwelling in the bay of Bengal
(1995)A baroclinic numerical model is applied to evolve thermal structure near the coast. The driving mechanism consists of windstress forcing representative of that applied during premonsoon (May), monsoon (July), and ... 
Prediction of error in finite element result
(1996)The precision in the results of analysis using the finite element (FE) technique requires that a structure to be analyzed shall be discretized using a finer mesh. The number of elements into which the structure shall be ... 
Prediction of uneven wear in a slurry pipeline on the basis of measurements in a pot tester
(1995)This paper reports a systematic study conducted on a pot tester to establish the effect of velocity, concentration and particle size on erosion wear. Two correlations have been proposed, based on the data generated for ... 
Quasistatic and dynamic axial compression of glass/polyester composite hemispherical shells
(1999)An experimental investigation has been carried out to study the collapse mechanisms and the energy absorption capacities of the glass/polyester composite hemispherical shells under both quasistatic and drop hammer loading. ... 
Rotational factor using bending moment approach under elastoplastic situation
(1995)Part I dealt with the evaluation of rotational factor considering the bending moment approach arising out of the stress distributions in the plane of fracture in a notched 3PB specimen. Part II is an extension of a similar ... 
Some aspects of axial collapse of cylindrical thinwalled tubes
(1998)Quasistatic and impact tests were performed on round tubes of different sizes and made of aluminium and mild steel, both in as received and annealed conditions. Length, diameter and thickness of these tubes were varied ... 
Stress due to a moving band source of heat and mechanical load on the work surface during grinding
(1997)The grinding operation is considered to be equivalent to a moving band source of heat and mechanical load on the surface of a semiinfinite solid, producing very high temperature on the surface of the workpiece. The resulting ...
