Modeling of the intermolecular ForceInduced Adhesion in Freestanding Nanostructures Made of Nanobeams
2
2
Among the intermolecular interactions, the Casimir and van der Waals forces are the most important forces that highly affect the behavior of nanostructures. This paper studies the effect of such forces on the adhesion of cantilever freestanding nanostructures. The nanostructures are made of a freestanding nanobeam which is suspended between two upper and lower conductive surfaces. The linear spring model is applied to derive the elastic force. The Lumped Parameter Model (LPM) is used to obtain constitutive equations of the systems. The maximum length of the nanobeam which prevents the adhesion is computed. Results of this study are useful for design and development of miniature devices.

Investigation of the vdW ForceInduced Instability in Nanoscale Actuators Fabricated form Cylindrical Nanowires
2
2
The presence of van der Waals (vdW) force can lead to mechanical instability in freestanding nanoscale actuators. Most of the previous researches in this area have exclusively focused on modeling the instability in actuators with one actuating components. While, less attention has been paid to actuators consist of two actuating components. Herein, the effect of the vdW force on the instability of freestanding actuators with two parallel actuating components is investigated. Conventional configurations including cantilever and doubleclamped geometries are investigated. A continuum mechanics theory in conjunction with Eulerbeam model is applied to obtain governing equations of the systems. The nonlinear governing equations of the actuators are solved using two different approaches, i.e. the modified Adomian decomposition and the finite difference method. The maximum length of the nanowire and minimum initial gap which prevents the instability is computed.

Jeffery Hamel Flow of a nonNewtonian Fluid
2
2
This paper presents the Jeffery Hamel flow of a nonNewtonian fluid namely Casson fluid. Suitable similarity transform is applied to reduce governing nonlinear partial differential equations to a much simpler ordinary differential equation. Variation of Parameters Method (VPM) is then employed to solve resulting equation. Same problem is solved numerical by using RungeKutta order 4 method. A comparison between both the solutions is carried out to check the efficiency of VPM. Effects of emerging parameters are demonstrated both for diverging and converging channels using graphical simulation.

An Analytical Technique for Solving Nonlinear Oscillators of the Motion of a Rigid Rod Rocking Bock and Tapered Beams

In this paper, a new analytical approach has been presented for solving strongly nonlinear oscillator problems. Iteration perturbation method leads us to high accurate solution. Two different high nonlinear examples are also presented to show the application and accuracy of the presented method. The results are compared with analytical methods and with the numerical solution using RungeKutta method in different figures. It has been shown that the iteration perturbation approach doesn't need any small perturbation and is accurate for nonlinear oscillator equations.

Periodic Solutions of the Duffing Harmonic Oscillator by He's Energy Balance Method
2
2
Duffing harmonic oscillator is a common model for nonlinear phenomena in science and engineering. This paper presents He´s Energy Balance Method (EBM) for solving nonlinear differential equations. Two strong nonlinear cases have been studied analytically. Analytical results of the EBM are compared with the solutions obtained by using He´s Frequency Amplitude Formulation (FAF) and numerical solutions using RungeKutta method. The results show the presented method is potentially to solve high nonlinear oscillator equations.

SaintVenant torsion of nonhomogeneous anisotropic bars
2
2
The BEM is applied to the solution of the torsion problem of nonhomogeneous anisotropic noncircular prismatic bars. The problem is formulated in terms of the warping function. This formulation leads to a second order partial differential equation with variable coefficients, subjected to a generalized Neumann type boundary condition. The problem is solved using the Analog Equation Method (AEM). According to this method, the governing equation is replaced by a Poisson’s equation subjected to a fictitious source under the same boundary condition. The fictitious load is established using the Boundary Element Method (BEM) after expanding it into a finite series of radial basis functions. The method has all the advantages of the pure BEM, since the discretization and integration are limited only on to the boundary. Numerical examples are presented which illustrate the efficiency and accuracy of the method.
