Volume 8, Issue 4 , December 2021, , Pages 323-340

http://dx.doi.org/10.22105/jarie.2021.296070.1358

Abstract
  In this paper, layerwise finite element analysis for the free vibration behavior of two-dimensional functionally graded sandwich plates with different boundary conditions is presented. The plates consist of three layers; a functionally graded layer embedded between ceramic and metal isotropic layers. ...  Read More

Volume 4, Issue 4 , December 2017, , Pages 268-278

http://dx.doi.org/10.22105/jarie.2017.54714

Abstract
  The dynamic response of a homogeneous elastic simply-supported beam subjected to a load system moving with a uniform velocity is studied in detail in this paper. Analytical expressions for the dynamic responses of the beam and the load-moving system are obtained by means of a new technique using decomposition ...  Read More

Finite Element Coding of Functionally Graded Beams under Various Boundary and Loading Conditions

Othman Al-Hawamdeh; Ibrahim Mousa Abu-Alshaikh; Naser Al-Huniti

Volume 4, Issue 4 , December 2017, , Pages 279-290

http://dx.doi.org/10.22105/jarie.2017.54713

Abstract
  Detailed formulation and coding of exact finite element is carried out to study the static behavior of a layered beam structure. The beam element is modelled based on the first-order shear deformation theory and it is assumed to be composed of three layers whereas the middle layer is made of functionally ...  Read More
