Jeffery’s viscoelastic model is deployed to describe the non-Newtonian characteristics of the fluid and provides a good approximation for polymers. Micro-structural is one of the characteristics of non-Newtonian fluid that represents certain polymers, which constitutes a novelty of the present work. The normalized nonlinear boundary value problem is solved computationally with the Keller-Box implicit finite-difference technique. Extensive solutions for velocity, surface temperature, angular velocity, skin friction, heat transfer rate and wall couple stress are visualized numerically and graphically for various thermophysical parameters. Validation is conducted with earlier published work for the case of a vertical plate in the absence of viscous dissipation, chemical reaction and non-Newtonian effects. This particle study finds applications in different industries like reliable equipment design, nuclear plants, paint spray, thermal fabrication, water-based gel solvents, polymeric manufacturing process, gas turbines and different propulsion devices.Shahid Chamran University of AhvazJournal of Applied and Computational Mechanics2383-45366220200401Exact Solution for Nonlinear Local Fractional Partial Differential Equations2002081455010.22055/jacm.2019.28835.1509ENDjelloulZianeLaboratory of Mathematics and its Applications (LAMAP), University of Oran1, Oran, Algeria0000-0002-1941-2633MountassirHamdi CherifLaboratory of Mathematics and its Applications (LAMAP), University of Oran1, Oran, Algeria0000-0003-3458-1918DumitruBaleanuDepartment of Mathematics, Cankaya University, Ankara, TurkeyInstitute of Space Sciences, Magurele-Bucharest, Romania0000-0002-0286-7244KacemBelghabaLaboratory of Mathematics and its Applications (LAMAP), University of Oran1, Oran, Algeria0000-0003-4372-6330Journal Article20190307In this work, we extend the existing local fractional Sumudu decomposition method to solve the nonlinear local fractional partial differential equations.

Box 66, 45000, Algeria0000-0003-2087-7574Journal Article20190316The performance of corrugated baffles inserted in a rectangular channel heat exchanger is investigated. The fluid flows and thermal distribution are determined via numerical simulations. The working fluid has a shear thinning behavior. The influence of the baffle design is explored, we interest to the “wavy” shape. The corrugation angle of baffle (<em>α</em>) is changed from 0° (i.e. a straight baffle) to 45°. Also, the height (<em>h</em>) of the corrugated baffle is changed and three cases are considered, namely: <em>h/H</em> = 0.4, 0.5 and 0.6, where “<em>H</em>” is the channel height. In comparison with the unbaffled channel, the overall performance factor has increased from 1.27 up to 1.53 when the corrugation angle is increased from 0° to 45°. Concerning the corrugation height, the predicted results allowed us to select the case <em>h/H</em> = 0.5 as the best configuration from the cases studied.Shahid Chamran University of AhvazJournal of Applied and Computational Mechanics2383-45366220200401Efficient Solution of Nonlinear Duffing Oscillator2192341442810.22055/jacm.2019.28965.1527ENImanKhatamiDepartment of Mechanical Engineering, Chabahar Maritime University, IranEhsanZahediDepartment of Biosystems Engineering, Shiraz University, IranMohsenZahediFaculty of Computer Engineering, University of Isfahan, IranJournal Article20190318In this paper, the efficient multi-step differential transform method (EMsDTM) is applied to get the accurate approximate solutions for strongly nonlinear duffing oscillator. The main improvement of EMsDTM which is to reduce the number of arithmetic operations, is thoroughly investigated and compared with the classic multi-step differential transform method (MsDTM). To illustrate the applicability and accuracy of the new method, six case studies of the free undamped and forced damped conditions are considered. The periodic response curves of both MsDTM and EMsDTM methods are obtained and contrasted with the exact solution or the numerical solution of Runge Kutta 4<sup>th</sup> order (RK4) method. This approach can be easily extended to other nonlinear systems and therefore is widely applicable in engineering and other sciences.Shahid Chamran University of AhvazJournal of Applied and Computational Mechanics2383-45366220200401Implicit RBF Meshless Method for the Solution of Two-dimensional Variable Order Fractional Cable Equation2352471450910.22055/jacm.2019.28849.1513ENAkbarMohebbiDepartment of Applied Mathematics, Faculty of Mathematical Science, University of Kashan, Kashan, Iran0000-0002-4146-232XMarziyehSaffarianDepartment of Applied Mathematics, Faculty of Mathematical Science, University of Kashan, Kashan, Iran0000-0001-9286-3003Journal Article20190309In the present work, the numerical solution of two-dimensional variable-order fractional cable (VOFC) equation using meshless collocation methods with thin plate spline radial basis functions is considered.

According to the effect of riveting induced residual stresses on fatigue life of riveted lap joint, these parameters are optimized to maximize the residual stress field. For this purpose, finite element simulations are performed for various combinations of the parameters according to Taguchi design of experiments. Afterwards, the parameter combination that maximize the residual stress field and the most effective parameters are obtained. The joint with maximum residual stress field is considered to have a semi-elliptical crack emanating from the rivet hole as an initial defect. Stress intensity factors are calculated by implementing two approaches: First, formulation overview that considers the effect of residual stress field, geometry and secondary bending, and second, the finite element method. The fatigue life of the joint is estimated using the obtained stress intensity factors and Paris-Erdogan rule. Finally, good accordance is found between results of these two approaches.Shahid Chamran University of AhvazJournal of Applied and Computational Mechanics2383-45366220200401Unsteady Hydromagnetic Flow of Eyring-Powell Nanofluid over an Inclined Permeable Stretching Sheet with Joule Heating and Thermal Radiation2592701458010.22055/jacm.2019.29520.1608ENBharathKumarDepartment of Mathematics, School of Sciences and Languages, VIT-AP University, Amaravati, Andhra Pradesh, 522 237, India0000-0002-7702-6845SuripeddiSrinivasDepartment of Mathematics, School of Sciences and Languages, VIT-AP University, Amaravati, Andhra Pradesh, 522 237, India0000-0002-3666-981XJournal Article20190513The present analysis deals with an unsteady magnetohydrodynamic flow of Eyring-Powell nanofluid over an inclined permeable stretching sheet. Effects of thermal radiation, Joule heating, and chemical reaction are considered. The effects of Brownian motion and thermophoresis on the flow over the permeable stretching sheet are discussed. Using Runge-Kutta fourth-order along with shooting technique, numerical and graphical results were obtained for the governing flow equations. The influence of various parameters on flow variables have been examined in detail. The results reveal that the temperature of the fluid enhanced with increasing Brownian and thermophoresis parameters. The increase of fluid velocity with the local Grashof number, the solutal Grashof number has been noticed. Further, the nanoparticles concentration decreased for a given increase in Brownian motion and chemical reaction parameters, while it increased with an increase in the thermophoresis parameter.Shahid Chamran University of AhvazJournal of Applied and Computational Mechanics2383-45366220200401Numerical Simulation of Non-Newtonian Inelastic Flows in Channel based on Artificial Compressibility Method2712831469910.22055/jacm.2019.29948.1650ENReisan Y.YasirDepartment of Mathematics, College of Science, University of Basrah, Basrah, Iraq0000-0002-5553-0389Alaa H.Al-MuslimawiDepartment of Mathematics, College of Science, University of Basrah, Basrah, Iraq0000-0002-1427-5094Bashaeer K.JassimDepartment of Mathematics, College of Science, University of Basrah, Basrah, Iraq0000-0002-0274-9598Journal Article20190616In this study, inelastic constitutive modelling is considered for the simulation of shear-thinning fluids through a circular channel. Numerical solutions are presented for power-law inelastic model, considering axisymmetric Poiseuille flow through a channel. The numerical simulation of such fluid is performed by using the Galerkin finite element approach based on artificial compression method (<em>AC</em>-method). Usually, the Naiver-Stoke partial differential equations are used to describe fluid activity. These models consist of two partial differential equations; a continuity equation (mass conservation) and time-dependent conservation of momentum, which are maintained in the cylindrical coordinate system (axisymmetric) flow in current study. The effects of many factors such as Reynolds number (<em>Re</em>) and artificial compressibility parameter (ß<sub>ac</sub>) are discussed in this study. In particular, this study confirms the effect of these parameters on the convergence level. To meet the method analysis, Poiseuille flow along a circular channel under an isothermal state is used as a simple test problem. This test is conducted by taking a circular section of the pipe. The Findings reveal that, there is a significant effect from the inelastic parameters upon the the velocity temporal convergence-rates of velocity, while for pressue, the change in convergence is modest. In addition, the rate of convergence is increased as the values of artificial compressibility parameter (ß<sub>ac</sub>) are decreased.Shahid Chamran University of AhvazJournal of Applied and Computational Mechanics2383-45366220200401Effect of Coating Materials on the Fatigue Behavior of Hip Implants: A Three-dimensional Finite Element Analysis2842951466510.22055/jacm.2019.30017.1659ENAyhamDarwichFaculty of Biomedical Engineering, Al-Andalus University for Medical Sciences, Tartous, Syria0000-0002-2027-7950HasanNazhaFaculty of Technical Engineering, University of Tartous, Tartous, Syria0000-0003-1531-1824MonzerDaoudDepartment of Mechanical Engineering, École de Technologie Supérieure (ÉTS), Montreal, Canada0000-0003-0556-1360Journal Article20190619This study aims to validate, using finite element analysis (FEA), the design concept by comparing the fatigue behavior of hip implant stems coated with composite (carbon/PEEK) and polymeric (PEEK) coating materials corresponding to different human activities: standing up, normal walking and climbing stairs under dynamic loadings to find out which of all these models have a better performance in the prosthesis-bone systems. A 3D finite element models of hip implants, femur, coating layers with polymeric (PEEK) and composite (carbon/PEEK) coating materials are created for FEA. The cyclic loads are applied on the prosthesis head. Fatigue life durations are calculated based on the Goodman mean-stress fatigue theory. The fatigue safety factor for the coated implant is increased more than 12.73% at least compared to the uncoated implant. The carbon/PEEK composite material with 0, +45, -45, and 90 degrees fiber orientation (configuration I) has the highest fatigue life and fatigue safety factor. The numerical result show that the carbon/PEEK composite material (configuration I) seems to be a good solution to increase the values of fatigue safety factor of coating layers due to highest fatigue life and fatigue safety factor. It distributes the applied load and transfers it to the bone, reducing stress-shielding effects and prolong the bone-prosthesis system life span.Shahid Chamran University of AhvazJournal of Applied and Computational Mechanics2383-45366220200401Slip Effects on Ohmic Dissipative Non-Newtonian Fluid Flow in the Presence of Aligned Magnetic Field2963061445310.22055/jacm.2019.29024.1543ENP.RenukaDepartment of Mathematics, Erode Sengunthar Engineering College, Erode - 638 057, IndiaB.GangaDepartment of Mathematics, Providence College for Women, Coonoor - 643 104, India0000-0003-3742-1696K.KalivananDepartment of Mathematics, Vivekananda College, Madurai - 625 234, India0000-0002-8303-4702A.K.Abdul HakeemDepartment of Mathematics, SRMV College of Arts and Science, Coimbatore - 641 020, India0000-0003-1698-7789Journal Article20190329The present paper deals with the effects of Ohmic dissipative Casson fluid flow over a stretching sheet in the presence of aligned magnetic field.

The proposed method incorporates higher-order approximations. After applying the proposed MEBM, a set of complicated higher-order nonlinear algebraic equations are obtained. Higher-order nonlinear algebraic equations are cumbersome to investigate especially in the case of a large initial oscillation amplitude. This limitation is overcome in the proposed method by using the iterative procedure based on the homotopy perturbation method. The approximated results agree well with the numerically obtained exact solutions. These third-order approximate solutions are found to be almost the same as exact solutions, which cannot be found using the existing energy balance method. Highly accurate result and simple solution procedure are advantages of this proposed method, which could be applied to other nonlinear oscillatory problems arising in nonlinear science and engineering.Shahid Chamran University of AhvazJournal of Applied and Computational Mechanics2383-45366220200401Experimental Investigation and Optimizing Geometrical Characteristics and Surface Quality in Drilling of AISI H13 Steel3323431464310.22055/jacm.2019.29070.1552ENFarshidJafarianFaculty of Engineering, Mahallat Institute of Higher Education, Mahallat, Iran0000-0002-5017-8945HojjatSamarikhalajDepartment of Mechanical Engineering, Amirkabir University of Technology, 424 Hafez Ave., 15914 Tehran, Iran0000-0001-7179-1119Journal Article20190406The aim of this paper is to investigate and optimize surface quality and geometrical characteristics in drilling process of AISI H13 steel, because they are critical items for precision manufacturing. After conducting the experiments, two regression models are developed to extensively evaluate the effect of drilling parameters on process outputs. After that, evolutionary multi-objective optimization algorithm is employed to find the optimal drilling conditions. Non-dominated Sorting Genetic Algorithm (NSGA-ІІ) is developed and regression functions are taken into account as objective functions of algorithm to simultaneously optimize the surface roughness and deviation of circularity. The optimization results are successfully in agreement with experimental findings and finally the set of optimal drilling conditions is reported that can be selected by process engineer according to the priority and application. It is shown that, an increase in Cutting speed and liquid coolant intensity decreases the surface quality, while higher depth of cut, tool diameter and reed rate improve it. It is also found that tool diameter and depth of cut are the most effective input parameters on deviation of circularity. Finally, it can be concluded that, the implemented approach in this research provides an efficient method for other manufacturing processes to increase the performance and reduction of production costs.Shahid Chamran University of AhvazJournal of Applied and Computational Mechanics2383-45366220200401A Parameter Uniform Numerical Scheme for Singularly Perturbed Differential-difference Equations with Mixed Shifts3443561446110.22055/jacm.2019.29567.1616ENP.MushaharyDepartment of Mathematics, NIT Rourkela, Odisha, 769008, IndiaS.

At first, we approximate the model problem by an upwind finite difference scheme on a Shishkin mesh. We know that the upwind scheme is stable and its solution is oscillation free, but it gives lower order of accuracy. So, to increase the convergence, we propose a hybrid finite difference scheme, in which we use the cubic spline difference method in the fine mesh regions and a midpoint upwind scheme in the coarse mesh regions. We establish a theoretical parameter uniform bound in the discrete maximum norm. To check the efficiency of the proposed methods, we consider test problems with delay, advance and the mixed parameters and the results are in agreement with our theoretical findings.Shahid Chamran University of AhvazJournal of Applied and Computational Mechanics2383-45366220200401An Analytical Approach of Nonlinear Thermo-mechanical Buckling of Functionally Graded Graphene-reinforced Composite Laminated Cylindrical Shells under Compressive Axial Load Surrounded by Elastic Foundation3573721464210.22055/jacm.2019.29527.1609ENNgoc LyLeFaculty of Fundamental Science for Engineering, University of Transport Technology, Hanoi, 100000, Vietnam0000-0003-3594-7248Thi PhuongNguyenFaculty of Civil Engineering, University of Transport Technology, Hanoi, 100000, Vietnam0000-0002-7629-6501Hoai NamVuDivision of Computational Mathematics and Engineering, Institute for Computational Science, Ton Duc Thang University, Ho Chi Minh City, 700000, VietnamFaculty of Civil Engineering, Ton Duc Thang University, Ho Chi Minh City, 700000, Vietnam0000-0002-5518-6979Thoi TrungNguyenDivision of Computational Mathematics and Engineering, Institute for Computational Science, Ton Duc Thang University, Ho Chi Minh City, 700000, VietnamFaculty of Civil Engineering, Ton Duc Thang University, Ho Chi Minh City, 700000, Vietnam0000-0001-7985-6706Minh DucVuFaculty of Civil Engineering, University of Transport Technology, Hanoi, 100000, Vietnam0000-0001-7798-4341Journal Article20190513This paper deals with an analytical approach to predict the nonlinear buckling behavior of functionally graded graphene-reinforced composite laminated cylindrical shells under axial compressive load surrounded by Pasternak’s elastic foundation in a thermal environment. Piece-wise functionally graded graphene-reinforced, composite layers are sorted with different types of graphene distribution. The governing equations are established by using Donnell’s shell theory with von Kármán nonlinearity terms and three-term solution of deflection is chosen for modeling the uniform deflection of pre-buckling state, linear and nonlinear deflection of post-buckling state. Galerkin method is applied to determine the critical axial compressive buckling load expression, post-buckling load-deflection and load-end shortening relations of the shell. The effects of environment temperature, foundation, geometrical properties, and graphene distribution on buckling behavior of shell, are numerically evaluated.
