Investigation of an Anisotropic k-ε Model
In this paper the eddy viscosity hypothesis is abandoned and explicit expressions of Reynolds stress are deduced directly from the transport equations. Anisotropic k and ɜ equations are...

Infiltration into Thick Unsaturated Alluvial Deposits: A Preliminary Study
An infiltration and dye transport study in an unsaturated alluvial deposit was conducted using a square flooding type infiltrometer over a 50 hour period. Red and blue dyes were added...

Anisotropic Effects on Flow from a Recirculation Well
We examined flow in an unconfined aquifer near a recirculation well, which consists of a source and a sink of equal strength, with emphasis on understanding the effects of anisotropy....

Anisotropic Behavior of Cement-Grouted Sand

Failure Prediction of Anisotropic Material
Basic mathematical elements of a higher order failure theory for anisotropic material are outlined. Surface closure is ensured by requiring a tensor polynomial to satisfy constraint conditions....

Fabric Related Probabilistic Model for Granular Materials
A new anisotropic noncoaxial incremental constitutive model for granular materials (Jahedi et al., 1990) was developed, in which a Fabric reconstruction factor 'β+',...

Local/Global Stiffness Matrix Formulation for Anisotropic Multilayered Structures

Method of Analysis for Advanced Composite Structures

Mechanical Anisotropy of the Yucca Mountain Tuffs
Three series of measurements were performed on oriented cores of several Yucca Mountain tuffs to determine the importance of mechanical anisotropy in the intact rock. Outcrop and drillhole...

On Isotropic and Anisotropic Damage Variables in Continuum Damage Mechanics
The present work analyzes the implication and limitation of some 'scalar damage' models. In particular, the elastic-damage thermodynamic potential and the 'effective...

On Determination of Turbulence Model Coefficients for Anisotropic Reynolds Stress Closure Model
In this paper, the determination of turbulence model coefficients for anisotropic Reynolds stress model is discussed. The proposed model includes anisotropic Reynolds stress modeling and...

Poisson Instability of Laminated Composite Plates
The paper considers the uniaxial buckling of rectangular, anisotropic composite laminates with in-plane restrained unloaded edges where Poisson's effect is predominant to...

On the Adhesive Strength of Viscoelastic Fibrous Composites
A methodology for solving problems of anisotropic materials using the theory of elasticity (viscoelasticity) is presented. Some results on specific problems related to the stressed-and-deformed...

Coupled Bending and Twisting of Thin-Walled Composite Beams
Thin-walled open-section composite material beams of the T, I and J geometries are routinely used as stiffeners for structural components in aerospace vehicles (Starnes et al, 1985). In...

Numerical Experiments for Anisotropic Behavior of Granular Materials
A three dimensional discrete element computer code 'TRUBAL' is used to investigate the effect of initial anisotropy on stress-strain and volume change characteristics...

Spatial Averaging of Statistically Anisotropic Point Conductivities
This paper presents a new technique to compute the mean, variogram and cross-variograms of the components of block conductivity tensors given the statistical distribution of point conductivities....

An Extended Mixture Approach for Modeling of Fiber Reinforced Cementitious Materials
A rate-independent, anisotropic model for Fiber Reinforced Cementitious Materials (FRCMs) is presented. A continuum damage/plasticity model for the concrete and an effective fiber model...

Settlement of Strip Foundations on Regularly Jointed Rock Masses
The analysis of a long, rigid strip foundation resting on the surface of a regularly jointed rock mass is presented. Two models of the overall rock mass are investigated; one in which...
