Abstract Studies on functionally graded (FG) curved microbeam structures are rather rare in the literature, and we thus present an effective computational approach on the basic combination of isogeometric analysis (IGA) and modified couple stress theory (MCST) for mechanical behavior analysis of such FG curved microbeams. The proposed method can cope with simultaneous complexities in material properties and geometries of the FG curved microbeams. The material properties of microbeams vary continuously along the thickness direction. The non-uniform rational B-spline (NURBS) basis functions are used to describe exactly geometries of the curved beams and displacement approximation. The MCST is adopted to capture the small-scale effects. Several examples of static bending and free vibration behaviors are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness and accuracy of the developed method. The effects of some factors (e.g., material gradient, size effect, boundary conditions, curvature, and aspect ratio of the beams) on mechanical behaviors of FG curved microbeams are investigated. The numerical results reveal that the small-scale effects decrease the deflection and increase the natural frequency because of increasing the stiffness.

Abstract This is a fundamental study on the nonlinear vibrations considering large amplitude in multi-sized hybrid Nano-composites (MHC) disk (MHCD) relying on nonlinear elastic media and located in an environment with gradually changed temperature feature. Carbon fibers (CF) or carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in the macro or nano sizes respectively are responsible for reinforcing the matrix. For prediction of the efficiency of the properties MHCD's modified Halpin-Tsai theory has been presented. The st...

In the current research, the free vibrational behavior of the FG nano-beams integrated in the hygro-thermal environment and reposed on the elastic foundation is investigated using a novel integral Timoshenko beam theory (ITBT). The current model has only three variables unknown and requires the introduction of the shear correction factor because her uniformed variation of the shear stress through the thickness. The effective properties of the nano-beam vary according to power-law and symmetric s...

Abstract We present in this paper an efficient computational approach based on an adaptive extended isogeometric analysis (XIGA) for simulation of arbitrary holes in orthotropic materials. The interfaces of holes are described by multiple level set functions so that the developed XIGA can capture the hole geometry without considering its interfaces. The approach is further enhanced by using the locally refined (LR) B-spline basis functions, which dominate over B-spline or non-uniform rational B-...

Abstract A Timoshenko functionally graded (TFG) imperfect microscale beam is considered and the coupled viscoelastic mechanics is analysed in a nonlinear regime. Based on the Timoshenko beam theory, incorporating geometric imperfections, the Kelvin-Voigt method is used for internal viscosity, the rotary inertia is automatically generated due to the Timoshenko theory, and the Mari-Tanaka scheme is used for the mixture. After utilising the constitutive stress/strain relations, Hamilton’s principle...

Abstract This paper aims at investigating fracture behavior of single and multiple cracks in two-dimensional solids by an adaptive extended isogeometric analysis (XIGA) based on locally refined (LR) B-splines. The adaptive XIGA is capable of modeling cracks without considering the location of crack faces due to the local enrichment technique based on partition-of-unity concept. The XIGA approximation is locally enriched by Heaviside function and crack tip enrichment functions to capture the disc...

Abstract The influence of various homogenization models is studied on the free vibration behavior of a functionally graded material (FGM) curved microbeam which is modeled using the modified strain gradient theory of elasticity as well as the first-order shear deformation theory. Different homogenization models (such as Voigt, Reuss, Hashin-Shtrikman bounds, and cubic local representative volume elements (LRVE) schemes) are used to predict the effective material properties of a two-phase particl...

Abstract A novel and effective computational approach within the context of isogeometric analysis (IGA) is developed for analyzing size-dependent mechanical behaviors of functionally graded (FG) microbeams. To capture the size effects, an extension of quasi-3D theory is established to integrate with the modified couple stress theory. The nonuniform rational B-spline (NURBS) basis functions are employed and can directly meet the first-order derivative demand of the quasi-3D theory, where four var...

Understanding the fluid flow through rock masses, which commonly consist of rock matrix and fractures, is a fundamental issue in many application areas of rock engineering. As the equivalent porous medium approach is the dominant approach for engineering applications, it is of great significance to estimate the equivalent permeability tensor of rock masses. This study aims to develop a novel numerical approach to estimate the equivalent permeability tensor for fractured porous rock masses.,The r...

Abstract Reliability-based design optimization (RBDO) is a powerful tool to handle the influence of various uncertainties during optimization. However, unbearable computation cost is one of the largest barriers for its application, especially for the finite element method (FEM)-based RBDO. In this paper, an efficient and accurate RBDO framework is established based on isogeometric analysis (IGA) for complex engineering problems. Furthermore, an enhanced step length adjustment (ESLA) iterative al...

To improve the mechanical behavior of the functionally graded beam, material properties are assumed to be symmetrically distributed throughout the axial and transverse directions.
