One-step semi-implicit integration of general finite-strain plasticity models

Using the Kröner–Lee elastic and plastic decomposition of the deformation gradient, a differential-algebraic system is obtained (in the so-called semi-explicit form). The system is composed by a smooth nonlinear differential equation and a …


Nanoindentation of a half-space due to a rigid cylindrical roller based on Steigmann–Ogden surface mechanical model

In this article, a semianalytical method of solution is developed for the nanocontact problem of elastic half-space indented by a rigid cylindrical roller. The mechanical formulation is based on the complete version of Steigmann–Ogden surface …


Thermo-rotational buckling and post-buckling analyses of rotating functionally graded microbeams

Buckling and post-buckling responses of rotating clamped–clamped functionally graded microbeams in thermal environment are examined on the basis of the Euler–Bernoulli beam assumption. To enrich the formulation with the size effect the modified …


Uncertain inverse method by the sequential FOSM and its application on uncertainty reconstruction of vehicle–pedestrian collision accident

Uncertainties widely exist in practical engineering problems. In order to effectively evaluate the unknown parameters under the uncertain measured responses, an efficient uncertain inverse method based on the sequential first order and second …
