Topology Optimization of Structures and Composite Continua

Topology optimization of buildings and composite fabrics is a brand new and quickly increasing box of mechanics that is now coming to play a big function in so much branches of engineering, akin to aerospace, mechanical, structural, civil and fabrics. There also are major implications for strength construction and the construction and fabric sciences.

Sample text

The return period is n cycles. At one time block programmes based on constant amplitude fatigue loading, and sometimes with large numbers of blocks, were widely used in variable amplitude fatigue testing (Frost et al. 1974). They have now largely been superseded by more sophisticated block programmes based on random loadings. Many service loadings are non stationary random processes, in which statistical coefficients vary with time, and their characterisation can be difficult (Bendat and Piersol 2000).

Lists of metal fatigue standards and related software are not included in this book because such lists would date rapidly. 1 Notation A constant amplitude fatigue loading (or constant amplitude loading) is a fatigue loading in which all the load cycles are identical. A load cycle is usually called either just a cycle or a fatigue cycle. 1. A cycle is the smallest unit of the stress history which repeats exactly. Cycles are often, but not always, sinusoidal. σa (sometimes σ , as in the figure) is the alternating stress, σm is the mean stress, σmax is the maximum stress in the load cycle, and σmin is the minimum stress in the load cycle.

Metallurgical feature scales. 08, which is a typical value. In design against metal fatigue very low probabilities of failure are of interest. The important point is that the normalised stress is much lower for low probabilities of failure. 2. Metal fatigue mechanisms are relatively simple when viewed at the largest scale in the table, but are more complex when viewed at smaller scales. This is typical of a wide range of physical phenomena, where different results are obtained by viewing at different scales (Mandelbrot 1977).
