Determination of Interfacial Shear and Normal Stresses in Fiber Pull-Out
In this paper we present an improved formulation for the pullout problem, wherein both the effects of fiber end condition and interfacial and frictional shear stresses are considered....

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....

Microcrack Interaction Toughening in Ceramics and CMCs
The generation of microcracks, which causes an extension of the damage zone at values of stress intensity factor, K, below the expected critical level represented by KIC...

Pattern Formation and Time-Dependence in Flowing Sand
The authors present results for a number of experiments on flowing granular materials and a novel cellular automata model for the flow of these materials when the grains are long and thin....

Modeling the Chaotic Behavior in Simple Shear Granular Flows
Simple shear granular flows have demonstrated a variety of puzzling phenomena. Both computer simulations and physical experiments have discovered particle grouping, layering and shear...

Mechanics of Granular Materials at Very Low Effective Stress Levels
Gravity's influence on laboratory specimens of uncemented granular materials subjected to low effective stresses, makes it impossible to evaluate constitutive properties in an unambiguous...

Stresses in Open Section Fiber Reinforced Composite Beams Under Constant Shear Loading
A strength of materials approach from the ply level is used to derive expressions for stresses in statically determinate open section composite beams subjected to constant shear loading....
